Bayer introduces versatile new option for heartworm prevention and intestinal parasite control
SHAWNEE, Kan. /PRNewswire/ -- Bayer Animal Health announces the launch of Coraxis™ (moxidectin) Topical Solution for Dogs, a prescription-only, monthly transdermal product that prevents heartworm disease and treats and controls hookworms, roundworms, and whipworms in dogs.

"Coraxis™ is a unique addition to the veterinarian's anti-parasite toolbox," said Robert Zolynas, DVM, MBA, Head of Research and Development North America for Bayer Animal Health.
