My OTTB gelding had a 20% tear to his deep digital flexor tendon in October. I put him on Smart Tendon and Smart MSM about a month after the injury. He gobbles it up, with no problem.
Although I don't think the supplements helped him heal any faster, I do notice that he has less swelling and discomfort on the supplements.
For example, after he was healed, I went about a week without them to see if there was any noticeable difference, and their was - I noticed increased soreness and discomfort, and once I put him back on it, he seemed much more comfortable.
After 4 months of hand walking and him in a private run - no stall rest and no PRP - he healed completely, with an expected amount of scar tissue. I'm happy with how he healed, and I think the SmartPak supplements certainly helped him remain comfortable, reduce imflamation, and support his healing. I will keep using Smart Tendon and Smart MSM for the rest of his life!

Great for Recovery!!
My mare Lilly tore her suspensory and I decided we needed a little extra something to help her heal. Well we just had our first check up and she has had "remarkable progress" and I have to think that SmartTendon played a big role. I intend to keep her on it to help us get back to competition!

Great Product For Piece Of Mind
I started using SmartTendon on my injury-prone mare 4 months ago. She crushed the tendons in her rear left leg a few years ago. She healed sound but with an ugly blemish. This winter she punctured the tendons in her right front. I started looking for a soft tissue specific supplement to put her on and found SmartTendon. She healed faster than I expected and with no blemishes. All of her legs look great. I like the results so much I just put my other hard working mare on it as a preventative.

I have my horse Villain on this supplement for a couple of months now. He seems to be doing great with it! So far so good and don't want to jinx it =)

Couldn't Be Happier!!
My 17 year old quarter horse gelding sustained a serious bowed tendon around the end of November last year. From November to January he didn't seem to be getting any better; even with two months of stall rest he was still lame and swollen/hot. I never believed in supplements, but as a desperate measure I bought SmartTendon. The results were absolutely incredible. Since two weeks after I started him on the supplements the swelling went away as well as the heat, and four months later he is back to regular flatwork (w/j/l) with NO lameness or swelling whatsoever! I've recommended this product to everyone I know and hope this review persuades anybody looking. WORTH THE MONEY!!!
