SmartPak knows that it’s never an easy decision when it comes to having to put a horse through colic surgery. However, you shouldn’t have to worry about anything but your best friend, which is why SmartPak is pleased to announce that it has increased its ColiCare coverage to $10,000.
“Generally, the need for colic surgery comes as a moment of crisis when expensive decisions have to be made immediately,” said Margaret MacHarg, DVM, MS, DACVS, Kendall Road Equine Hospital. “With ColiCare the owner can be confident that they are protected financially which helps them focus on their horse’s needs.”
ColiCare is a colic surgery reimbursement program that has been helping and supporting horse owners since 2012. ColiCare combines daily digestive support along with preventive care from your veterinarian to help lower your horse’s risk of digestive upset. ColiCare can be used on its own or in conjunction with existing equine insurance and even covers senior horses with no upper age limit!
“No horse owner ever wants to believe that their horse will colic, and the thought of putting a horse through colic surgery is incredibly scary,” said Kerri Walsh, ColiCare Program Manager at SmartPak. “We want horse owners to have that peace of mind that they have the financial resources needed to make that potentially life-saving decision quickly, and focus on what matters most when it comes to their horse’s health.”
Enrolling your horse in the ColiCare program is easy. To start, simply choose from one of seven eligible digestive support supplements in SmartPaks, starting at just $1.47 per day. Once ordered, you can complete the application online or over the phone. Finally, to remain eligible, continue to meet the annual wellness requirements with your veterinarian, which include: a physical exam, a dental exam, vet-administered vaccinations, and a vet-directed deworming program.
