    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great product for multiple uses! I originally started using this product two years ago when 4 horses tested positive for lyme on our farm. We did a course of IV tetracylene for them all over 21 days and gave them probios to support their system. This spring we've had crazy rain and a few of the horses developed hives as a result. Within 24 hours of starting this, the hives were receding and on their way to being gone. I am so impressed with this product that I am considering keeping my horses on it for an extended time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really great product! My vet was impressed with my research on this product to try to help my older mare, Fora, be able to get more nutrients from her slower system due to her age. And the best part yet, it mixes well and she hasn't refused it yet!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very great product My young horse started out with some rough times of colic and he almost had scours with one of the episodes. I learned more about the benefits of a probiotic and wanted help for my colt. I have been feeding Probios since May of this past year and my horse has had no belly aches and normal bowelmovements. I only wish that I could have learned about this sooner for my first horse. I wanted the best for him but I lost him to colic. So I highly recommend Probios. Save your hose so you will have long happy life together.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I am currently giving this to a 4 month old colt that I bought and weaned recently. He eats it right up. I have also given this to adult horses when travelling and to sheep.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and Affordable Digestive Supplement! I started my horse on a a combo of Sandclear (the monthly dose), and a month of ProBios, due to my vet's recommendation. My horse had been suffering from chronic diarrhea (not serious but enough that I wanted to treat it), due to the hot and humid weather.My vet also suggested that perhaps he had inhaled some gravel/sand through nudging around for grass turning turnout, so I quickly turned to Smartpak for both the Sandclear and the ProBios. They were the only company offering the Sandclear in a weekly treatment and the ProBios was super palatable and affordable as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love it! After having intermittent loose stool issues with my Labradors, I tried Probios. Each of my adult dogs gets one small scoop of the powder daily top dressed on their kibble which has resulted in my dogs feeling much better and having more consistent stools. I have never had them refuse to eat this. I also give this to my young babies when I begin weaning them until they go to their new homes. I'm a firm believer in the value of probiotics and find this product works well and is priced fairly. The paste/gel if wonderful if I need to quickly administer the product and for very young puppies before they are weaned. In a pinch, if I do not have the paste, a small amount of the powder can be mixed with water and put in a syringe and administered that way.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Hindgut ulcers I don't have the moola for succeed since at one point I would have had two on it. I was told to start my horse with hind gut ulcers on probios and within a week I was seeing him perk up and start to gain back weight. I also added oat flour and now he is good as new. Nothing else extra, love probios! Just wish they offered the small granules or pellets as my guy doesn't care for the powder so I have to mix it with something like beet pulp for him to eat it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Supplement! I had my horse on this when we had an unseasonably warm winter and he and others got worms. It balanced him out perfectly for months. Now that he's off of it I'm thinking his digestion was doing a lot better when he was on it and I'm planning on adding Probios to my next shipment of SmartPaks. Also, because it is powder it would always sit at the bottom of his bucket, but for some reason my horse liked it so much he would lick it off the bottom when all the grain was gone!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value and it seems to work My 3 year old TB has some tummy issues from being malnourished as a baby and this keeps him feeling well and his system normal. One little scoop of this a day does wonders for his digestive system. We know right away if he hasn't had it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Start My Mare ALWAYS has watery stools during her heat cycle. My vet suggested this - and so did the supplement wizard! We have been using this for about 6 weeks and seeing some good results. I think we are off to a good start for the Spring Season.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probes good stuff i gave this to my mIni who had diarrhea and it cleared her up next day. The only problem was trying to figure out howuch to administer to her. O had to do a couple google seaches online to find a post on dosages from a rep from probios.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy for irregular days! My TB is so sensitive to the slightest change, so it's nice to back up any change in routine or weather with Probios powder. Helps keep his stool nice and solid and good for the price. Goes in with his grain and he often licks his feeder clean so I know he gets it all. This is a product I always have on hand!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mare didn't like it I have a mare who hasn't really ever been picky about food, she likes the probios treats, but this powder put her off her feed. She flat out refused to eat it. I'm sure the powder is good quality like the other probios products, but I can't recommend it as my mare did not like it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good. I haven't had my horse on this product that long yet, but he seems to be doing good on it. I put him on it because he is 30 years old, to help maintain his weight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product For my TB Gelding with ulcer issues... this product has been an amazing addition to his smartpaks. You can't beat the value either!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for prevention I've have had my 17h appendix qh gelding on this for over over 6 months now. He hasn't had stomach issues in the past but I use this to supplement his digestive system and also as a preventative method. He is a large horse and he is on half ( 5g) of smartpak's suggested maintenance dose (10g). I find it to be very suitable for a horse whom has a healthy digestive system. Saves some money!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good preventative I've never had digestive issues with my gelding, but I use this as a daily preventative. He likes to eat it, and he stays healthy. Good product for the money!
