Bausch + Lomb is entering the pet healthcare realm with a brand-new collection of products for canines — Project Watson.

Specifically formulated to help support dogs’ eyes, ears and overall well-being, the collection uses high-quality and naturally inspired ingredients, the Vaughan, On.-based company said.

“For nearly two centuries, Bausch + Lomb has been associated with many of the most significant advances in eye health. Building on our eye care expertise and history in surgical solutions for veterinarians, we created Project Watson to help address the unmet healthcare needs of dogs,” said Joe Gordon, president of global consumer, surgical and vision care at Bausch + Lomb. “Developed in collaboration with veterinarians, Project Watson focuses on dogs’ eyes and ears — important areas that are often overlooked in the health of our beloved four-legged family members. Project Watson products will begin rolling out online in certain retailers beginning next month.”
