Really helped my old mare
I had some of this product left over from a horse that was sold and decided to try it for my old mare who has trouble keeping weight on. She also tended to have mild gas colic unless kept on a very rigid 4-meals-a-day schedule. She has been quite content and gaining weight since adding Smart Gut pellets to her feed. I am using only 1/2 the recommended amount, so I bought a bucket rather than a Smart Pak.

After my horses first show he developed ulcers, after treatments I went to another show where he again developed ulcers. I added smart gut to his pak and haven't had to treat him again and he eats great no more wasting hay/feed.

Keeping his stomach happy
My horse is stall bound with a suspensory injury. Instead of having my barn help paste him every day with ulcerguard, I stuck him on this supplement to keep his stomach quiet.
So far so good, his manure is solid and he is as happy as he is going to get inside his stall for 6 weeks!

Best Purchase Ever!
I purchased this for my 10 yr old Barrel horse. She has always been a "cranky" mare, and always has opened her mouth and tipped her head from side to side when you ride her... This year she started doing it worse, so I knew it wasnt just a bad habit. I started her on the Smartgut Powder because it was inexpensive and I didnt have much to loose. She was on the Smartgut Powder for 6 days when I noticed she had stopped opening her mouth and tilting her head side to side when you ride her, I didnt think it would work so quick but that was the only thing I had changed! She has been on it for a month and is less crankier as well! I am switching her to the pellets as the powder is a little messy in the buckets but definalty well worth the $$! Would recommened to anyone!

so far so good!
Having just treated my TB with a full course of Gastrogard, I was determined to find a daily maintence product that would ensure gut health after the initial treatment was complete. Many times,minor ulcers will return promply upon completion of the Rx products due to an increase in stomach acid formerly controled by the Rx. Anyway....I did NOT want my poor pony to suffer from this. We started the SmartGut 1/3 of the way through his Rx treatment and he has been getting it daily ever since. We are at 2 weeks post treatment. So far....so good!!!

I saw a noticeable difference in my horse after just one month on Smartgut. Not only has she put weight back on, her attitude has dramatically improved. Smartgut his given me back the horse I had before ulcers!
