I use this for my imported 8 yo Oldenburg Gelding that is a chronic colicker, hospitalized 12 times over the past 2 years. I have tried similar products without success. The vets and I were at wits end so I decided to try UltraDigest along with the Equishure and have seen remarkable results. He has made it through the fluctuating temps of spring without colicking which is amazing. He is maintaining weight and is comfortable, which has been difficult to achieve. This is the best digestive product, along with Equishure, that I have tried.

A different horse
I had recently completed ulcer treatment with my horse and he still seemed sensitive and on the grouchy side (very unlike him). After about 3 weeks on the SmartDigest ultra he is back to his sweet self, calmer, doesn't move away when I try to tack him. And there is a noticeable difference in his stools. He also likes the taste of the pellets!

Relief is worth it!
Being the type who always worries about my twice coliced, rescued horse, and someone who keeps extremely busy, once Smokey started on Colic Care I felt a sense of relief. I don't always have to remember to renew my prescription, plus Smokey has not coliced, since. Best of all, should he, we have the option of surgery. Thanks for your honest efforts towards improving horses lives, your product, "insurance" and considering the busy lives of your customers.

Peace of MIND!
When all the horses had colic at the barn...I decided not to take the chance and so far...so good!

My draft cross has a lot of issues with runny stool, with white legs to the knees and a white tail it was a nightmare. 2 weeks after I started the supplement, clean legs and tail!!! SO grateful for this product, and colic care to boot...awesome :)

Worth it for colic coverage
My horse was formerly enrolled with the Continuex daily dewormer colic program until my vet rec. that I stop using daily dewormer (due to threat of resistant parasites). We've had several negative fecals and I now use paste dewormer 2x year. I was thrilled to find another kind of colic coverage with a supplement purchase. My horse used to have a lot of watery discharge in between producing normal formed manure and that is greatly reduced (not gone yet but he's only been on the SmartDigest for a couple of weeks.) I give palatability an average grade because my horse is very suspicious of new tastes and he took several days to start eating SmartDigest. Hang in there if this happens with your horse. Mine eats it fine now. I add a little water to get it to stick to the grain.
