Petplan Equine offers expert advice on colic

Petplan Equine, leading UK specialist equine insurance provider, is encouraging horse owners to be more aware of how to avoid colic, which is one of the most common conditions for which Petplan receives vets fee claims and which can lead to equine fatality.

Visitors to the Petplan Equine stand at this year’s Royal International Horse Show at Hickstead (30 July – 4 August) will be able to see a life-size model of the equine gut and discover more about the horse’s sensitive digestive system and the problems that can result in colic.

"At Petplan Equine we are passionate about the care of the horse," explains head of marketing, Isabella von Mesterhazy, "and we want our customers to look to us for advice and information on how to care for their horses as well as on insurance. With the help of the Petplan Equine Vet of the Year Gil Riley we have created this life-size model as we believe that being able to see the horse’s very complicated digestive system will help people to understand what can create the problems that cause colic."

A video of Gil Riley explaining the horse’s digestive system can be viewed on the Petplan Equine Facebook page at
