SmartGut provides comprehensive gastric support through a selection of ingredients that allow natural healing mechanisms in the stomach to take effect.  These include ingredients to neutralize excess gastric acid, probiotics, prebiotics, soluble fiber, the amino acids L-Glutamine and Glycine, soothing herbs and other safeguards for a healthy stomach lining.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff WORKS! I saw a difference in my horse's wattery manure in 24 hours. I've tried other probiotic products and they did not work. I will never take my horse off SmartGut, it truly works!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Peace of Mind I have a four year old OTTB whom I just bought this past year. Upon buying him, I immediately did the preventative treatment for ulcers with the UlcerGuard. After that treatment was finished I immediately started giving him the Smartgut. My horse is a mild cribber and tends to internalize a lot of things. I don't have to worry about ulcers with him now that I use Smartgut. He is no longer cribbing every minute in his stall, and is no longer girthy or upset. I like that the Smartgut also promotes the health of the stomach lining unlike some other ulcer preventatives. It is a little pricey, but completely worth it compared to the price of UlcerGuard every month.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! My vet recommended this product for my ulcer-prone mare, and so far so good! I have only been using this product for just over a month now, but it seems to be working. I love the way it smells (delicious!) and so does my mare. She gobbles it up, and can't get enough of it! I don't even have to mix it in - she will eat it right off the top of her grain. The price is super as well! Thank you SmartPak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ulcers-Be-Gone I put my horse on Smartgut when he exhibited terrible ulcer symptoms during a lengthy rehab period where he was on stall rest. His symptoms were very dramatic and it was upsetting to have him in so much distress. I gave him a few doses of Ulcerguard and Smartpak rushed out the Smartpak Gut. It has been great! It took a week but his symptoms are gone and although he is back to work now, I will always keep him on a maintenance 1 scoop dose form here on. Thank you once again Smartpak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comforting It was within days I noticed my gelding feeling better and relaxed in training and eager to eat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product We purchased Smart Gut for a customers mare that had gotten a pretty bad abcess in a hind hoof and as a result foundered on the other hind foot. Due to the amount of medicine required to keep her comfortable she ended up with ulcers. Her gut hurt so bad that she looked like she was holding her stomach in all the time. After a month on Smart Gut she started gaining weight and her stomach muscles started to relax. She is a much happier mare today!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luv this stuff! My daughters mare is a "Super cribber", pacer and very hard keeper. In 30 days we see a huge difference in her. Put on some weight, slowed her vices and seems more relaxed! Yippy! A great buy!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, but my horse was allergic I love SmartPak's products all around; unfortunately, my horse was allergic to the SmartGut so we have to try something else. She ate it with no problem though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves this! It seems to work because he doesn't seem "annoyed" from his ulcers. He loves the taste and it smells great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, Great Price This product makes a huge difference in my horse. If he misses a few days you can see the negative impact on his temperament and overall comfort. Once he started taking SmartGut he was a different horse - much happier and with a healthier coat and able to maintain weight that he never could before. He's the perfect before and after case study! Plus it's an awesome value - my vet sells a similar product for $170 for a month's supply!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase ever Has may a very big difference in my mare. She has put on weight and has been able to maintain with training. Will continue to use on all my horses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SmartGut - Makes a Difference I adopted Chino, a Paint from a rescue organization almost 2 years ago. Chino was a severe starvation case and he fought hard to be alive today...we started Chino on SmartGut soon after his arrival to his new home. SmartGut has helped Chino tremendously with his digestive tract; which has helped him to maintain a great body condition and become a much happier horse. Chino was a bad cribber when he first arrived, I can say that SmartGut has also helped to curb his cribbing habit. He is truly talented, level headed and an amazing mover. Chino is currently in training in Eventing and Dressage and is doing extremely well...thanks to the special care and love he so deserved and now receives. That's why I turned to Smartpak for his supplemental needs, their quality products and expertise can't be compared to any other equine resource available...Thank you!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS WORKS ! Smart Gut truly works and I do not say that lightly. My aqha all around show gelding was not scoped but had many symptoms of ulcers. I did the 30day Ulcer Gard treatment but have been looking for something daily as well to maintain him. I've tried a few, but this WORKED. He's calmer and EATS even at shows and when he comes home. I still give 1/4 tube of Ulcer Gard for a weekend show or even intense day show.***My horse is also SUPER PICKY eater and SLURPS this up in his grain. WOW

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All that it's supposed to be... ...including palatable! Smells so good (marshmallows) I think I could eat it! One or two of the boys are still a little poor, but nobody gives any evidence of EGUS, or threatens colic. So far, I think it's worth the cost, and the effort. 6 months on, I expect everybody to be round and shiny!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got my horse back! After two small bouts of colic in a two week period, I knew something was definitely wrong. In discussing with my vet we both agreed he sounded like he was showing signs of ulcers. After spending all night researching products I decided the SmartGut not only offered the best combination of ingredients, but also gave me the best bang for my buck. SmartPak had it delivered to the barn the next day. With the combination of SmartGut and 4 days of Ulcerguard I got my horse back! Funny how you don't realize the subtle changes until things get bad. His personality is back and the snarky under saddle behavior I attributed to training/muscle soreness is gone. Thank you Smartpak for a great product and service when I needed it the most!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It seems to be working After an endoscopy at the equine hospital and several weeks on GastroGuard...."expensive adventure" ...mylittle Morgan is finally back to normal. In our situation, being on GastroGuard for 3-4 wks. followed up with Smartgut (continually) was the solution to our gastric ulcer extravaganza. I would recommend giving Smartgut a try if you are experiencing gastric ulcer upset with your horse...don't wait until you have to call the vet$$$.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ulcer support I purchased this to provide some anti-ulcer support for my horse. The product smells great, almost like chocolate, and he gobbles it up. I am not completely decided if it is helping the ulcers or not. He has not had a major flair up in the month that he's been on it, so that is an improvement. The next couple months should be telling.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SmartGut powder SmartGut powder did a great job in helping my new horse have better stool and overall stomach health, however he did not care for the powder formula and he still refuses at the end of 28 day pack, so I am switching to the pelletsBut the product helped!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good alternative Better price than Gastrogard and seems to do a nice job of prevention once an ulcer has healed without the higher cost of some other supplements out there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not sure if it worked or it was weather change My horse this past winter was having aggression problems and was making funny noises when I would girth him up or pawing and making funny noises then along with ear pinning in the paddock or anyhere he was. Now after being on it for 3 months is much nicer but not sure if it was this or because the weather turned warmer and the snow has gone.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Typical "ulcer" medicine My barrel horse was scoped and diagnosed with ulcers last spring. I treated with the FDA approved ulcer treatment and they healed. I've used alot of ulcer products trying to save money from buying those extremely expensive and this product is a typcal "ulcer" treatment. I didn't see results in her eating or any weight gain and I've used it for 14 days. I also started the pellets on my 5 year old as a prevention and she looks a little sucked up. It might work for some horses but it didn't work for mine. If your horse has been diagnosed go with the FDA approved. It will save you money in the long run.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My mare loves it! This has to be my mare's favorite supplement! She loves the marshmallow smell and taste to it - licking her tub dry! Its also my favorite as my mare has never shown any ulcer symptoms, even though she is in heavy training and showing often.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver SmartGut has really been a useful tool for managing our horse who is prone to ulcers. I started him on it when he finished his last 28 day course of UlcerGard. The very picky horse eats it (in powdered form) happily and has not had ulcer symptoms return for two years now. Thanks!!
