Equine Insurance

Insurance policies:

As a part of horse ownership, we all understand that medical expenses are generally unexpected and can pile up in an instant. Depending on the problem, equine insurance policies can be a savior to protect you and your horse when illness strikes. There are many different options for equine insurance including (but not limited to): surgical, major medical, loss of use, colic policies and mortality. Annual premiums give the owner peace of mind that if disaster strikes, insurance coverage will pay for most if not all of the bill associated with the best treatment available. Mortality insurance, when needed, can reimburse the owner for the value of the horse if cure is not possible or if it has a poor quality of life. Many companies also offer coverage for loss of use, depending on the use and value of the horse. For more information about insurance companies or if you have questions and would like to speak to a veterinarian, please contact CVMC at 480-595-8600.

Colic Coverage:

Equine feed and supplement companies now offer coverage policies specifically for colic. Generally, these policies will cover most if not all costs associated with the treatment of colic and/or colic surgery as long as the horse is enrolled in a wellness program with a veterinarian and their horse is being fed the company’s product. Several companies are now offering plans, all of which can be discussed with your veterinarian to see which would be the best fit for you and your horse’s needs. Take a look below to see if any of these programs could benefit you and your horse.
