Freedom Health Launches Crusade Against Equine Colic Campaign

Freedom Health, LLC has announced the introduction of a new awareness campaign: the Crusade Against Equine Colic™.

As the manufacturer of a leading equine health product, Freedom Health supports greater education and awareness of important digestive health concerns like colic. Knowledge is power. This is particularly important with colic, as it is the number one medical killer of adult domestic horses. That fact has been well-established by veterinary science, but the root causes of colic are less well understood.

Our goal is to save as many horses as possible from deadly and debilitating bouts of colic, though educating trainers, riders, farm managers … the people who care for horses every day.

“We are proud to bring you the Colic Crusade, a movement to empower you with information to help you take charge and avoid colic,” says John Hall, president and CEO of Freedom Health. “Please share this with others, invite them to visit our new website, and share your experiences so that, together, we can vastly reduce the incidence of colic.”
