What is ColiCare? From the SmartPak website

Why you should be concerned about colic

Colic is responsible for more deaths in horses than any other disease. A sudden change in your horse’s lifestyle or diet, such as different hay or grain, increased stall time, adjustment in activity level, or even dehydration can lead to colic. In fact, research has shown that hay changes alone can increase a horse’s risk of colic by 10 times! Luckily studies also suggest there are things you can do to help reduce your horse’s risk.
