Product Overview

Which horses benefit from comprehensive gastric support?

Your horse was designed to consume small amounts of forage throughout the day, so his stomach produces acid 24/7. In a natural grazing situation, where a horse is chewing and swallowing consistently, his gastric acid is buffered by forage and saliva. This buffering action helps keep excess acidity from damaging the sensitive stomach lining. Unfortunately, many common elements of modern horse keeping – such as training, travel, increased stall time, and feeding practices, like large grain meals – are often at odds with how horses were designed to live and eat, which can lead to gastric upset. A stressed stomach can negatively impact your horse’s health, attitude, and performance, which is why providing a selection of ingredients that support gastric health is a smart way to help him look and feel his best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Improvement I got this at the recommendation of my vet for my OTTB. She is much more comfortable and relaxed. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ulcers show already in healing! This was my very first time buying smartpaks, and I had bought this product for my OTTB as we suspected he had some Gastric Ulcers, and I wanted to give him as much relief as possible before his Scoping. About a week into feeding the supplement I had certainly noticed major changes in his behavior, less nippy, and he had dropped his cribbing habit, those results were certainly enough to convince me. The time to scope him came around and we were extremely shocked to find that the Ulcers were already in the healing process, our vets only explanation is SmartGut Ultra, a good diet, and lots of pasture. Thanks to SmartPak my boy is looking to make a much faster recovery, with Ulcer Guard and SmartGut Ultra, we will most certainly be keeping him on SmartGut Ultra for a very long time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got my horse back! I have had my horse on this for 28 days and what a difference. I would encourage you to listen to your horse and when something changes, look for the reason. I suspected ulcers when my lazy and "all whoa, barely any go" horse suddenly did NOT want to even walk forward. I took the saddle off. I asked people to see if he was lame. It didn't matter how animated I was with kicking or my dressage whip, he did not want to move forward. I had to have someone chase me around with a lunge whip to get him going. This happened 2 days in a row and I knew something was wrong. He also became spooky when a bought him ( a few months prior to suspecting ulcers) and he really didn't go back to the quiet, laid back and calm horse I bought. Most everyone at my barn blamed his attitude for the issues and thankfully, I didn't listen to them. They basically said that he didn't have enough symptoms to have ulcers and I said that I didn't want to wait until he was bucking and rearing at girthing before I did something about it. I researched and decided on smartgut Ultra and put him on ulcer guard for a week while I waited for the supplement to arrive. He also got a week off because I knew he was hurting. 10 days later, I had a different horse. A month later and my horse hasn't spooked in the last 2 weeks (he's had plenty of reasons, too!). He's not irritated. He's willing. He's willing to trot and walk when asked. Sometimes horses are subtle and if you suspect something has changed, trust your gut! This supplement is fantastic and I will be keeping him on it. I also give him Purina Outlast treats a few days a week as well. I believe that works by making their stomachs less acidic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great featured Upon recommendation of my trainer, my mare is on her second month of this product. Based on the excellent assistance of a SmartPak representative, review of the product and my trainer's endorsement; hopefully it will be another of my mare's supplementsls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Veterinarian recommended My horse is doing well on SmartGut Ultra pellets. My Veterinarians had recommended this product after diagnosis of ulcers. After our initial medication treatments, SmartGut Ultra has helped my horse feel his best. I am happy with SmartPak products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great support for my ulcer prone horse I had my mare on SmartGut for prevention after she had some pyloric ulcers a year and a half ago. She still gets ulcery with changes such as the new arena being put in (trucks coming and going next to the paddocks), herd changes, etc. I wanted to see if switching to SmartGut Ultra would improve her tummy issues. She has been so much more relaxed with the switch. The trucks have been coming and going again, bringing new footing in and she doesn't even look. Part of her herd left for a show and it's not a big deal this time. She still has the same energy and curiosity, just not the typical signs of an upset GI that she normally might get with these changes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Mare! My mare has always been a little nervous. We have been showing ARHA quite a bit this past two summers and she was showing beginning signs of gastric distress. (Not eating well at home and on the road, grouchy, etc.) This product has helped her tummy chill out, she is eating great at home and on the road, and back to her wonderful sweet self. Thanks SP for making a easy to use, effective, and palatable product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SmartGut® Ultra Pellets works great I started our young horse on SmartGut® Ultra Pellets to protect his gut while starting his training. I notice he stays calm and seems more focused. I love this supplement and will keep him on it forever. I think gut issues happen a lot in horses that act up and owners don't realize it. I highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! My 4yo ottb was scoped by my vet and diagnosed with grade 1 ulcers after suddenly becoming quite difficult (and that's putting it nicely) in training and just being grumpy in general which is not typical for his personality. I treated with omeprazole and stated him in one Smartgut Ultra. Wow! He's now so comfortable, willing, and back to his sweet self!! I always want to make sure all my horses have the support they need and Smartpaks is where I turn for effective supplements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says it's supposed to do My very pron ulcer barrel horse has been on these for about a month now. I see a huge difference with her. I'll know even more once she goes back to full competition. As of right now they do what it says it's supposed to do... protect the lining of the stomach from creating ulcers. She seems so happy and energetic, so I feel they are doing the job. I'm also an equine vet tech and all the vets I work with (5) recommend this product to help protect.
