Bayer HealthCare LLC, Animal Health Division, one of the most recognizable brands in animal health, has joined the National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) corporate partner group as an official animal health care product provider.
“Partnering with a brand with the excellent credentials of Bayer Animal Health is exciting for NCHA,” said NCHA Executive Director Jim Bret Campbell. “Their investment in the cutting horse industry is reflective of the sports current use of their products as well as the potential growth for the Bayer Animal Health brand in one of the most demanding of equine sports.”
Bayer Animal Health provides a trio of products to the horse industry, including its cornerstone product Legend® (hyaluronate sodium) Injectable Solution, which is used in the treatment of joint dysfunction of the carpus or fetlock due to non-infectious synovitis associated with equine osteoarthritis. In addition, cutting horse owners will find effective uses for Marquis® (15% w/w ponazuril) Antiprotozoal Oral Paste for the treatment of Equine Protozoal Myeloencephalitis (EPM), and for wound treatment, products such as equitrX® Wound Healing Spray Gel or equitrX® Corneal Repair Gel Drops, are sold.
“Bayer Animal Health works closely with veterinarians and other professionals in the horse industry to ensure that its products continue to provide an effective and safe level of treatment solutions,” said Scott King, DVM, equine products manager. “The cutting horse is a uniquely talented animal with specific needs that Bayer has the ability to address and it is looking forward to building its relationship with NCHA and its members.”
