Don’t Be Left In The Dark About Colic

SmartPak® and SUCCEED® are celebrating Colic Awareness Month in June

SmartPak and SUCCEED have teamed up to promote Colic Awareness Month this June. Throughout the month, these two industry leaders are providing valuable information about how to help lower your horse’s colic risk.

Colic is one of the most common emergency veterinary calls in horses, and the AAEP estimates that over 700,000 horses will colic this year in the United States. “There are many factors that can increase a horse’s risk for colic,” said Dr. Lydia Gray, SmartPak’s Staff Veterinarian and Medical Director. “While no one can prevent colic one hundred percent, there are steps you can take to help support your horse’s digestive health, in turn reducing their risk.”

Colic can be scary, but you don’t have to be in the dark about it. All month long, SmartPak and SUCCEED will provide horse owners with the latest information about colic and how they can make management and dietary changes to help reduce their horses’ colic risk. One way to start learning more and understanding risks is by reading articles written by their staff veterinarians about colic risk factors, types of colic, digestive tract anatomy, and more.

“Colic Awareness Month aims to save as many horses as possible from deadly and debilitating bouts of colic, through education of the men and women who care for them,” said John Hall., President and CEO of Freedom Health, makers of SUCCEED. “We are excited to join forces with SmartPak this year, to leverage our combined resources so we reach and positively affect more people – and more horses – than ever before.”

In addition to providing these educational materials, SmartPak is also offering special deals on digestive supplements all month long, including exclusive savings on over 20 best-selling formulas including SmartDigest® Ultra and SUCCEED.
