ColicCare Program

Horses get colic, it's a matter of when not if. When it does occur, most often medical treatment(s) usually correct the problem, but in some cases surgical intervention will be required to resolve the underlying cause. This is where having the assurance of a program like ColicCare to support your decision-making becomes very important. I strongly encourage my clientelle to become familiar with this program and decide if it is the right decision for them and their horse(s).

PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS: An Eligible Horse must meet the following Program Requirements to be in compliance with the ColiCare Program and eligible for Surgical Reimbursement:

Daily administration of the maintenance dose of one or more of the following eleigible products: SmartDigest Ultra, SmartDigest Ultra Pellets, SmartGI Ultra Pellets, SmartCombo Ultra Pellets, SmartCombo Senior Ultra Pellets, SmartCombo Ultimate Pellets, or SmartR&R Pellets in the SmartPak supplement feeding system for a minimum of twenty-eight (28) consecutive calendar days (defined as a minimum of 28 days from the shipment date). After acceptance, provided that an eligible dose of a ColiCare-Eligible Product must have shipped to the Customer within 28 calendar days of applying for the ColiCare Program.

Documentation of at least one physical examination by your Attending Veterinarian each year and compliance with all of Attending Veterinarian's recommendations (both as a result of any physical examinations or other recommendations of Attending Veterinarian),

Documentation of at least one dental examination by your Attending Veterinarian each year and administration of dental treatment(s) as recommended by such examination,

Documentation of participation in a deworming program overseen by the Attending Veterinarian that includes at least one fecal egg count test and at least two deworming administrations each year.

REIMBURSEMENT: Surgical Reimbursement is limited to $7,500 over the lifetime of an Eligible Horse and is limited to Eligible Expenses incurred while a horse is an Eligible Horse. Any fees that exceed $7,500 are the sole responsibility of Customer. Expenditures eligible for Surgical Reimbursement are only those costs incurred by the horse's owner or horse-owner's agent for a surgical colic incident, namely:
