    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hoping it works long term My horse had a dropped sole from laminitis so I am hoping this works as promised. She has been on it for a month and I am seeing some small improvements. The loading dose is 3 months so I am looking for continued improvements each month. It is very expensive but will be worth it if she continues to improve.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product We purchased our horse, Annie, 4 years ago for my 7 year old daughter. Annie is an excellent kid's horse. She is now 12 years old and since we've had her, she steadly started to have great difficulty generally getting up and moving around. We were not informed when we purchased Annie that she had foundered. Her joints were severely inflammed and had great difficulty moving around. I tried practically everything, even seeking our vet's help and spared no cost to getting my girl the pain relief she desperately needed. I was about to give up and I came across LamineX and decided to try one more product in the hopes of getting her some relief. Within the first 2 weeks, I noticed a dramatic improvement. After 2 weeks, she was off all other products and was strictly on LamineX and her Purina Senior feed with no other supplements and she is doing wonderful. LamineX is truly a blessing to us and Annie. Thank you!!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best feet he's ever had I've been using this product for a year next month and my horses feet have never done better. He's wearing shoes for the first time in 10 years and they're holding for min. 6 wks. I love everything about this supplement the added vit. and support and my horse will eat the pellets right out of my hand. The product is not cheap, but any hoof supplement worth anything isn't.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helping my Foundered Mini My Mini foundered from asymptomatic Cushings and subsequent IR. After a few months the vet and I decided to try a trial of Pergolide which gave him the help needed to essentially manage his laminitis. I had him on Laminasaver from Figuerola at the time and he was doing well on it (considering his Cushings was untreated until then), but once on Pergolide he stopped eating for weeks. By playing with his dose and reducing it to .1mg twice a day he eventually began to eat again but no supplements passed his palate including his beloved Equinesaver vitamins. This summer I found Laminex and he wouldn't eat it at first, and refused to eat it ground to a powder, but now I lightly crush the pellets with a mortar and pestle, he just refuses to eat large pellets. I add the Laminex (2/3 the dose is his limit but it's enough) along with some alfalfa pellets, a small dose of Quiessence and his alfalfa flavored Pergolide powder (which he eats mixed with some semi-crushed/ powdered Cheerios) and my boy is sound, still on pasture and second cut hay to keep his weight up. He now runs and bucks on cool days (he's never been the running bucking type his entire life ; ) I hope it works for you, but as with all things, experimentation may be necessary.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not to use with anticoagulant drugs??? I ordered this, very excitedly, to try with my chronic lamintic mare -- she's currently stable and I want to support her as much as possible so we remain that way! She's on other Rx drugs as well -- anyway I ordered and started using Laminex -- then began re-researching hoof supps and read this in the product details -- "Do not use in conjunction with anticoagulant drugs." So that doesn't work for us -- she's on an anticoagulant for the lamintis... NOTHING advese happened, but I was a little confused and surprised after reading that and have taken her off it -- so check with your vet (which they also advise...). As to palatability, my uber picky mare ate the pellets right up! Shocking!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver - Literally My mare foundered in December of 2011. She is a tough girl, and never showed any of the typical symptoms. After two farm calls, I convinced my vet to take X-rays. He thought he was just wasting my money after watching my mare walk and trot!After the first film, he couldn't believe what he was seeing. She had a 10 degree and 13 degree rotation. For those of you that don't know, anything over 10 degrees is very bad. With the help of our vet, we took aggressive action, held our breath and prayed.After 30 days, I started her on Laminex. We have made serious changes in her management, and at her 6 month X-ray she shocked us once more. She now has a 5 degree and 6 degree rotation. We were stunned! My vet could not believe what he was seeing, and measured and re-measured her X-ray. He just kept shaking my hand, saying, "I am so pleased with her progress!"Her progress is not typical. We would be lucky to have this much progress after a year. We can't wait to see what we have at 12 months!I give credit to everyone involved...including SmartPak and Laminex!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sad but True I had high hopes for Laminex when I ordered it. My pony suffers from chronic laminitis and I had tried every possible treatment available with little success. Sadly, after almost two months of use I have seen no improvement at all in his condition. Short of putting him down (which I just can't do) I am completely out of options. I would be eternally grateful for any kind of help in this matter.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I purchased this for my pony that has chronic laminitis. I was feeding multiple supplements and found this one that had everything in one. He lives for food and will eat anything but he will not eat this!! I have tried everything to make it tastier but nothing will work. I'm not sure how well the product works, but I wish they would make it taste better!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT results My horse has had SEVERE hoof issues for years now, my farrier says I am probably more experienced on hoof abscesses and soaking then he is. I’ve tried several products over the years with good results, but they all only addresses hoof health. I liked this product better because it offered support for soreness and inflammation. Between diet change and changes to his pasture along with this supplement my farrier says his feet look better then he has seen them in YEARS.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase and it works My name is Hector Del Valle, writing on behalf of Pedro L. Reyes.Our horse farm is located in Morriston, Florida. We have 11 Paso Fino horses. Our 4 year old colt Soñador De Los Nietos woke up one morning in August 2011 unable to move and in a lot of pain. We contacted our veterinary doctor. He took some X rays and told us that he had Laminitis in his two front legs. He put him on a pain medicine regiment to help him with the inflammation and pain and recommended grains be removed from his diet. We tried everything our vets suggested, medicines and also holistic, natural medicines. One day my cousin Hector was looking at my smart pak catalog and found the LaminiX pellet supplement. At this point we were desperate for anything that could help Soñador walk and return to his old self, playful and full of energy. Hector ordered the LaminiX smart pak maintenance dose package the first week of December 2011. I was a little apprehensive about this supplement working at all because we had tried everything our vet had suggested and what we found on the internet to help him but nothing help, he was getting worst. After the second week of adding the Laminix pre-pack easy to use 1 scoop (2.5 oz) daily dose to his whole oats diet, his demeanor completely changed and he started to move around and feel better. After his first hoof trimming and two months of the LaminiX dose Soñador had made a great recovery. He is running around and not limping any more, he is also full of energy and pain free, almost back to his old self. I definitely recommend LaminiX to any one.Thank you Smart Pak,Hector Del Valle and Pedro L. Reyes

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not sure yet Being that this is a hoof supplement and I've only been using it a few months it still too early to say if it's helping, but so far so good and my horse LOVES the taste we'll eat them out of my hand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Barefoot Transition Helper This product contains the most anti inflammatory natural ingredients and I would recommend it for anyone taking their horse to barefoot to ease the transition - It really makes a noticeable difference - I have also just had my horse examined by a chiropractor and he is now being treated for a sore back - the anti inflammatories in this supplement will help that as well - my horse has no h/o laminitis but it is ideal for him. He eats it perfectly well with no pickiness. I combine it with the Smartpak Omega Ultra supplement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It just plain works When it comes to hoof supplements you really need to allow a horse to grow an entire new hoof before one can really say something works or doesn't. I gave Laminex to my 20 year old horse who I have owned since birth. He has always had terrible low heel high heel syndrome and I have had basically every farrier in my area try to bring him in to soundness. X-rays showed no obvious issues (no navicular changes evidenced, coffin bone in near perfect alignment, but significant crushing of the soft tissue in the heel area of the low heel and extreme ossification of the lateral cartilages on the high heel. I had never used a hoof supplement but after doing some research Laminex seemed to be the product that could both support some of his old age arthritis and also help increase circulation, and strengthen the hoof wall. My concern was that I had noticed increased digital pulses and my gelding was showing signs of cushings disease (his dam also had it) so even though his x-rays showed no rotation I started him on laminex as a preventative. 4 to 5 months in to the Laminex there was an obvious difference in the new hoof growth from the old, there was literally about an 1/8 of an inch indent where the old hoof growth was and the new. The new grew out wider and for the first time ever my gelding has started to grow some heel. We are currently challenged with the task of keeping his toe back to keep the pretty new heel from underunning but we are making progress. Bottom line this horse was a pasture pet which was fine by me he earned it but now he has a new career teaching a new young rider to ride. The Laminex has enabled him to be a walk trot horse and just the look of how pleased he is with himself when he feels he has a purpose is worth the 50+dollars a month. Did I mention I don't need a separate multi-vitamin supplement and is loaded with support for his joints? I only wish they made a version without devil's claw (can't use because of USEF regulations) and I would make sure all my guys had this!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This worked!! My founder/abscess prone mare is walking without limping on her left front forefoot after being on Laminex for a couple of weeks. She did not like the taste and wouldn't eat it at first, but I ground up a carrot and mixed it in and that did the trick. She will be on this supplement from now on.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product ponies didn't really like the taste, but mixed with their grain and a little cinnamon and cocosoya oil they eat it fine. Feeding to a rescue ponie who is a severe laminitic ponie. soles seem to be getting thicker and his spring relapse is much less severe than last year. Weeds are not such an issue. Anxious to see how it will work long term.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LamineX has made a big difference! My beloved mare of 20 years foundered out of the blue in March. She suffered a 10 degree of rotation, but my vets and I were determined to give her every chance to recover. X-rays were taken right along to access if she was growing sole. It didn't look good, as she was not growing sole. Then, I started her on Smartpak's LamineX and in only two weeks, the next set of X-rays showed "fair" (according to my vet) sole growth!!! I am thrilled and will continue to keep her on this supplement for the rest of her life. Thank you so much Smartpak for providing such a product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MIRACLE PRODUCT We have a 27 year old Quarter Pony, who has suffered from years of Laminitis. We have managed her condition successfully until 2 years ago. It started with her soles bruising easily. So we retired her from the BIG KIDS and is used ONLY for my 4 year old daughter. Last fall 2010, she had an Laminitis attack, she was in so much pain we actully believed it was time to do the right thing. Not emotionally prepared to explain to my 4 year old "Why her Pony was Gone" I didn't want to give up so easily, so I searched through Smartpaks Products. Found Laminex and ordered it. Today she is running and bucking in the field, I actually think I can let the big kids ride her again. My farrier took a Smartpak Catalog from me, as he is AMAZED at the sudden quaity of hoof she is growing. Her shaggy Pony coat is shedding out healthier than it's been in years. Although, She's not WILD about the taste, But she can handle a little grain intake so we mix it, and she can't resist but eating it. Thank You for this wonderful product, I think Prizer will make it to 30 years old....RIDEABLE!!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Need trial size! I do not recommend buying this product. I purchased this for a horse that I have owned for 8 years and have no recollection of her ever refusing to eat anything. Except this product. She will not eat it or anything it is added to in an effort to make it more palatable for her.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product My mare has been on Laminex for just over a month and I can already see a difference! No trouble getting her to eat it either, which I was a little worried about. Since she recently foundered she is not able to eat grain, so I'm really pleased that she will eat it by itself. She is no longer sore when she walks and when my shoer came to put shoes on her yesterday he said, "This is what feet are supposed to look like", to another lady at the barn! I was so impressed! All of my mare's feet are white, so for him to say that was amazing! She is getting around great and looks amazing as well! This is an all around GREAT supplement! Highly recommended. I will keep using for sure! Thanks SmartPak!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from convenient hoof support My pony recently foundered on pasture and I needed a quick, quality hoof support supplement -pronto! What I got was excellent customer support, and a quality product. The pony doesn't find it too tasty though, so I disguise it in some grain. It seems to be helping her recover nicely.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works if you can get them to eat it Ordered this for foundered pony. I do think it has contributed to his recovery and his hooves look good, but since he has started feeling better, he won't eat the pellets. I've been pouring Karo syrup on them and rolling them in oats and he gets a lot of them but never eats his whole portion. He is a typical pony in that he will eat most anything he can get his lips on - Little Debbies, Dogfood, etc. but I have had a problem with him eating "medicated" wafers before so it may just be him. I think its worth trying for any horse but watch what they are throwing out of the bucket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Priceless!!! My 11 year old Arabian gelding has had a cofin bone rotation. He would be good for a few months and then just as I was starting to work him he'd come up sore. Got soft pads for his feet and several supplements. Mixing and trying to make sure he ate it all was a pain. Started on Laminex and within 4-5 days he became more and more sound! I couldn't believe this product worked so fast. He's back working and will be back in the show ring this season. Thank you so much for the great product. He eats it with no problem.
