Colic is one of the scariest words in an equestrian’s vocabulary. We’ve all heard horror stories of ruptures, surgical colic, stomach tubes, walking horses through the night… the list goes on. Many of us have even experienced some or all of these things.

However, SmartPak has a totally free program that offers horse owners some peace of mind… and up to $10,000 in colic surgery reimbursement. The program:

  • combines SmartPak’s best hindgut supplements with preventive veterinary care to help lower your horse’s risk of digestive upset
  •  gives peace of mind knowing you have financial resources if needed
  • can be used on its own or with existing insurance
  • even covers senior horses with no upper age limit!

Here’s one rider’s testimonial:

One of the best things about the ColiCare program is how easy it is to join. All it takes is three simple steps:

1. Order in SmartPaks

Every ColiCare eligible supplement shares the same foundation with SmartDigest Ultra for comprehensive hindgut support that’s backed by research. SmartPak offers several options to meet your horse’s unique needs. Shop here.

2. Enroll

Once you’ve ordered your ColiCare eligible supplement in SmartPaks, you’ll be able to complete the application form online or over the phone. Applying to enroll takes less than five minutes! See the eligibility requirements here.

3. Wellness Care

Regular veterinary care is key to help your horse stay healthy. To remain eligible for reimbursement, continue to have your horse’s veterinarian perform these basic wellness services each year:

  • Physical exam
  • Dental exam
  • Vaccinations
  • Deworming program

You’re probably already doing all of this as part of your horse’s annual maintenance, so why not have some extra peace of mind?
