It’s not surprising that by maintaining optimal digestive health, even in the face of modern care and feeding, our horses are more likely to look and feel their best and perform to potential. But even with the best possible feeding and management programs, restricting turnout, feeding grain, and riding regularly (not to mention rigors of travel and competition) still stress the horse’s delicate digestive tract if we don’t take additional steps to intervene.
Good health and wellness has always been the SUCCEED promise. Now, we are backing that promise with the SUCCEED Healthy Gut Commitment, available only through your veterinarian.
It’s our way of supporting you, your horse and your veterinarian.
Veterinary Colic Expense Reimbursement
Within particular conditions and limits, Freedom Health LLC will reimburse your veterinarian for services related to treating colic that arises from digestive tract dysfunction, so long as the horse remains continuously on SUCCEED Veterinary Formula in accordance with the manufacturer instructions:
Up to $15,000 for Surgical Colic Services
If the horse is refered to a surgical center and the horse subsequently undergoes surgery as a direct result of the colic incidence, then Freedom Health will reimburse the surgical center up to $15,000 for surgical costs related to the colic, related pre-surgery diagnostics and post-surgery recovery at the clinic.
Surgical costs are covered so long as the colic is proven to be related to GI tract dysfunction including torsions, displacements, intussusceptions, necrotic tissue with possible re-section, etc.*
Up to $800 for Medical Colic Services
For example, a colic incident where treatment is provided on site, without the need for surgery.
That’s more coverage than with any other similar colic program, with fewer eligibility requirements.
Healthy Gut Commitment Program Eligibility
That’s all. No complicated paperwork, no laundry list of exams or care that must be provided by your vet annually.
