The ColiCare colic surgery reimbursement program just got even better! SmartPak announces it has taken another step in helping to keep horses of all ages healthy by removing the upper age limit on the ColiCare eligibility requirements.
New for 2014, the removal of the upper age limit means that senior horses over the age of 25 are no longer excluded from ColiCare. The ColiCare program now offers the same great benefits, including up to $7,500 of colic surgery reimbursement coverage, for life!
“We are very excited about this improvement to the ColiCare program and we hope our customers are too,” said Jessica Normand, SmartPak’s Senior Director of SmartSupplements. “Rest assured there have been no changes to the outstanding program benefits - we simply removed the upper age limit! With this adjustment we look forward to many more years of helping owners keep their horses healthy with all of the support that comes with ColiCare.”
ColiCare is open to horses that are fed SmartDigest Ultra in SmartPaks. SmartDigest Ultra is specially designed to help horses manage digestive stress caused by hay fluctuations, training, travel and more. This innovative formula provides high levels of clinically studied ingredients, including prebiotics, yeast and enzymes, to help keep the digestive tract healthy and balanced. SmartDigest Ultra provides unparalleled GI protection for every horse, from the high level performance horse to the retiree and everything in between.
Horses enrolled in the ColiCare program are required to participate in a veterinarian-directed wellness program. These program requirements include annual vaccinations administered by a veterinarian, annual physical and dental exams performed by a veterinarian, and a veterinarian-directed deworming program that includes at least one fecal test and two deworming administrations per year.
To be eligible for ColiCare, the horse must be at least 5 months old and weaned, reside in the U.S., and may not have had previous colic surgery, a history of chronic colic, or an incidence of colic in the past twelve months.
