The Truth About Colic Reimbursement Programs

by Amanda Mills

With almost every big name supplement company out there offering their own version of a colic reimbursement program if you feed their supplements, how do you know which is the right one for you?  

Sure, much of it starts out of convenience; you're already feeding the company's product so why wouldn't you sign up? But ask yourself these two questions: 

  1. Am I feeding the best supplement available for my horse?
  2. Am I getting the best coverage available for my horse?

Most of the time, the answers to both are no.  Obviously, cost plays a factor in many people's decision but, at some point, if you're not feeding the right supplement for your horse, you're just throwing away money that could go toward something that may actually work.  Colic reimbursement programs are historically exclusionary and most do not include coverage options for the things that matter most - medical colic, senior horses and international travel for competitors.  

In an effort to break down the barrier and lessen confusion, here is a comparison of the industry's colic reimbursement programs to help you choose what's right for you!
