Bayer Animal Health Partners with Clifford the Big Red Dog to Teach Children about Caring for Pets
May 19, 2016 • Health & Wellness
May is National Lyme Disease Awareness Month and National Pet Month, and in conjunction with Bayer Animal Health’s annual International Companion Vector-Borne Disease (CVBD) Symposium, Bayer Animal Health has partnered with the iconic storybook character Clifford the Big Red Dog to create custom “Clifford Goes to the Doctor” books, which features tips for families to prevent bites from fleas, ticks and mosquitos which can carry diseases, such as Lyme disease and Ehrlichia, also known as companion vector-borne diseases (CVBD).
To celebrate the limited-edition book, Bayer Animal Health Veterinarian, Dr. Dan Carey joined Clifford at a local elementary school in Miami, FL to read the book to first graders and share important pet care tips. Bayer Animal Health also donated more than 1,600 copies of “Clifford Goes to the Doctor” to elementary schools throughout the Miami-Dade School District.
