Take A Stand Against Horse Colic

header

Challenge #1

Difficulty: Easy
Time to complete: 5 minutes!


Protect yourself and your horse with $7500 of colic surgery reimbursement

Many day-to-day barn events—like changes in hay or grain—are proven to increase a horse’s risk of colic. The American Association of Equine Practitioners estimates that 900,000 horses will colic this year in the United States, and colic is responsible for more deaths than any other condition. But that doesn’t mean you have to stand idly by—you can protect yourself and your horse. Enrolling your horse in ColiCare is one of the smartest things you can do for your horse’s health this year. ColiCare combines the comprehensive support of the clinically proven ingredients with a veterinarian-directed wellness program for the ultimate digestive health care. Best of all, ColiCare provides up to $7,500 of colic surgery reimbursement, should your horse ever need it. So what are you waiting for?

      My horse is in the same situation as Casondra’s

      • Christy says:

        I got an email Friday saying that there is no longer an upper age limit. I replied to the email asking if my 33 year old pony is now available for coverage. I haven’t heard back yet, but I’m looking forward to the reply. Of my 3 horses, only one qualifies. One is 33 (over the age limit) and one survived colic surgery.
