Colic Assistance Plan

The expense of treating horses with colic can often present financial stress to the client. Consequently, many horses that would otherwise carry a good prognosis with treatment are being euthanized due to a lack of available funds.

We recognize this problem and have created a solution for our clients: affordable equine colic assistance. This includes hospitalization, fluid therapy, supplies, medications, intensive care and surgery (when a staff surgeon is available).

  • For all Owners
  • For all Horses
  • For all Colic situations
  • Medical or Surgical care at the Clinic for a fixed flat fee
  • Enrollment sign up fee (see attached figures)
  • Examination and enrollment form needed ($75 fee for both)
  • 30 day waiting period to become active
  • BRING HORSE TO CLINIC and …
  • $500 deductible covers $3,000 of treatment!

A few restrictions do apply; these are listed below.

If we can address any questions or concerns that you may have regarding the program and/ or if you would like to participate, please stop by the clinic, call the office at 781-585-2611, or click here
