A healthy horse starts with a healthy digestive system. SmartPak has launched three new SmartSupplements designed to support healthy hindgut function: SmartGI Ultra, SmartCombo Senior Ultra, and SmartDigest Ultra Pellets. All three of these supplements are eligible for ColiCare, SmartPak’s FREE program which provides up to $7,500 of colic surgery reimbursement. According to the AAEP, an estimated 900,000 horses will colic this year in the U.S. alone, and more horses die of colic than any other condition. ColiCare offers horse owners the ultimate peace of mind through the combination of daily hindgut support and a veterinarian-directed wellness program to ensure optimal preventive care. The ColiCare program is compatible with existing equine insurance and even covers senior horses because there is no upper age limit! Enrolling in ColiCare is easy, simply follow these 3 steps: 1. Order any ColiCare eligible supplement in SmartPaks, 2. enroll in the program online or over the phone, and 3. meet the annual wellness requirements. As long as horse owners continue to meet the requirements above, if their enrolled horse undergoes any type of colic surgery, SmartPak will reimburse them up to $7500. With ColiCare, horse owners can sleep soundly knowing their horse has the best hindgut support and the best veterinarian-directed wellness program in his corner. Learn more about the new SmartSupplements and ColiCare at www.SmartPak.com/ColiCare, and check out their ads on pages 29 and 31.
