While competing at an open show with Central Michigan Horseman’s Association about a year ago, it was extremely dusty and dry that weekend, and Johnny suddenly developed a horrible cough. When we got home, he continued to cough. We tried soaking his hay, giving him some type of cough-free pellets, giving him some rest, and then doing some light exercise to see if he would work out of it, but nothing seemed to help.
My mom, Marcy, saw the SmartBreathe Ultra Pellets on SmartPak’s website, and since we’d seen great results with the SmartFlex Ultra Pellets we also have Johnny on, I thought I would look into it for him. When I saw that it was recommended for horses with seasonal allergies, which Johnny had started having over the last few years, we decided to give it a try. His cough stopped almost immediately! I now have him on SmartBreathe Ultra year-round, as keeping the ingredients in his system really helps support him during weather transitions. Living in Michigan, Johnny’s allergies can be triggered at any time with our crazy weather, but the SmartBreathe Ultra has really helped!
We've been using SmartPaks for so many years now, I can't even remember when we first started. We had a 24-year-old Paint mare named Dakota with a very aggressive form of lymphoma who we had to put down a few years ago, and we added the Smart & Simple CBD Pellets to her SmartPak supplements to help her feel more comfortable. When we reached out to SmartPak to cancel her supplements after putting her down, they sent us a kind message acknowledging her passing. That really meant a lot to us.
I also love how easy supplements in SmartPaks are to use. The barn manager at the farm we board Johnny at has recommended SmartPaks to all his boarders, because they make it so much easier on him and the barn's feeding routine! SmartPaks are also super easy to grab and travel with when we show. My mom and I are constantly raving about SmartPak’s Customer Care Team—their customer service is the BEST!
