SmartSupplements by SmartPak
- Item #16321
Form: Powder
Maintenance Dose: 1 SmartPak Well

Dehydration in horses has serious consequences. In order to keep your horse properly hydrated and performing his best, it is essential to supplement his diet with salt. Neither hay, pasture nor fortified grain contain enough salt (Sodium Chloride) to meet your horse’s needs, and not all horses can get their requirements from a salt block alone. Feeding a well-balanced electrolyte supplement like SmartLytes can supply the Sodium Chloride your horse needs, in addition to the other electrolyte minerals that are lost in sweat - Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium. Supplying these electrolytes will also encourage your horse to drink more water, rebalancing his fluids and helping to ensure proper digestion of feeds. 

SmartLytes was carefully formulated to mimic the mineral losses in equine sweat. This cherry flavored powder is sugar free and contains Trimethylglycine (the B vitamin Betaine), to help cells maintain normal fluid levels. What a smart electrolyte!

It smells like berries, it helped my boy tramendously! I was having problems keeping him dehydrated especially after his colic surgery almost two years ago. I needed him to stay hydrated and this did the trick! Thanks again smart pak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never dehydrated I'm loving smart lytes as a good quality, inexpensive way to keep my horse hydrated. My horse drinks like a fish and we've had zero dehydration incidents. Highly recommend for horses in moderate to hard work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real Garlic Looks like garlic, smells like garlic (not that nasty bitter smell of the powdered form). Mega cheap. My warmblood has never left any uneaten, but then he is a bit of a starving orphan that will eat anything.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste While I have the 2 horses I lease on it, everyone in our barn is on it and has been for years. No horse has objected to taste and I feel it is the best electrolyte in the market.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps my horse safe, and smells like SweetTarts! These electrolytes are a must have for my horse! I keep him on 1/2 dose in the winter and a full dose in the summer time. It helps keep him drinking, replenishes nutrients lost through sweat, and he actually eats it! He can be finicky about what he eats (especially in powder form), but he will eat this by itself!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easier, more reliable than salt block I dislike feeding salt blocks because there is no way to tell how much salt your horse is getting (if any). They are also messy, melt away in the rain, get mud/dirt all over them, etc. I have a 17 year old Thoroughbred mare who sweats excessively at polo, much more so than my other mare when playing at the same intensity. She tends to drink a lot of water normally but I wanted to ensure that she was getting her salts replenished after workouts so I added SmartLytes to her LMF Senior ration. She does seem to be drinking more water than usual although it's hard to tell if her stamina is any better due to the supplement. The good thing is she eats it with no objections, and she is the pickiest horse I have ever met. Won't eat apples, apple sauce, molasses from a jar, most powdered supplements and of course won't touch powdered bute with a 10' pole, yet eats the SmartLytes powder right up when mixed with LMF.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deal- great product This is is great deal for a very important supplement that is staple in all sport horses diet working in the we heat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good solution My mare needs salt to keep her drinking water to aviod colic. She doesn't really like the table salt I was giving her, but she eats the SmartLytes powder.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from My horse wouldn't eat it This looks like a good product, but unfortunately, my horse won't eat it. She's generally not picky, but she left this in the bucket, even if I wet her feed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cant go wrong! I travel to horse shows and trail rides frequently i like to keep this stuff in my trailer or in the barn on days where there not drinking so much or if i feel i need to keep them drinking. Its a great price and i just mix it in with their grain. When i fed it everyday i lowered the maintenance dose and still saw a difference. Great stuff and they clean it up even though its a powder.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells Great! This product is a fantastic value! My horse likes the taste, but I am switching to the pellets. I feel like the powder goes everywhere and some is lost in the bucket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great supplement! My horse was very picky about electrolyte supplements, so I was trying to find one that he would actually eat. I was very pleased when he gobbled up his bucket when the supplement came! Now I feel good knowing that he is getting the electrolytes he needs for the hot weather.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Love it! Now I know my horse is getting exactly what he needs.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from No Change My horse is generally a good drinker, in the field. We can be at a show all day and he'll hardly drink, even when I bring our own water; he'll wait until we get home to drink from the trough. He doesn't drink from his stall buckets either. He loves his salt lick so he's not deficient, was just hoping this would persuade him to drink elsewhere. No such luck. Though it does smell wonderful and he licks the bowl clean.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Would be Great if he Would Eat it I trust all of the smartpak supplement brands, and I have had much success with them! However, my Not-so-picky guy refuses to eat this stuff. It smells great, but he really does eat anything and everything just not this! :( With summer around the corner along with the Texas heat, I'll just have to try an alternative. I'm disappointed but i will continue to us SmartPak's SmartFlex Rehab, SmartTendon, and SmartDigest.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this in the tub so that I could use it when my horse is worked hard and not have to feed it every day. He definitely drinks a lot more water, that's for sure. So, I would say it is a good investment to make sure my guy is well hydrated and has all his electrolytes. It smells tasty and my horse likes it, but he's not particularly picky.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product My 3-Day horse refused to eat his bucket when I added electrolyte powder I bought from my local feed store. I tried two different products and no luck. I switched to this product after a recommendation from a friend - success! My gelding licked his bucket clean. Now I can relax and know he is getting what he needs to do his job on the XC course! Thanks Smartpak!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Moderately Picky Eater Did NOT Eat It My boy picked at his food the first few days I tried this and then started turning his nose up completely. I'm sure it's a great product, just can't get my boy to eat it even after trying all the tricks.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Horse is not a fan I purchased these since we moved from a boarding facility that added electrolytes in their food, to a place that didn't have any added electrolytes in their food or water. I was really excited about the value, and I thought the pellets would be easy-peasy since my horse eats pretty much everything. The first day he ate them no problem, mixed with a little bit of feed. That was the last time I could get him to eat them. I've tried mixing with food, hand feeding, moistening them, and adding jello mix as flavouring, but he does not care for them. I can sometimes get him to eat a little bit if I bury them in enough food, but I don't want to feed him that much extra since he gets 2 feeds other than the supplements.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the money It is hard to tell if all electrolytes are really replenishing your horse because it is an internal thing, but I will say that my horse loves the taste. The price couldnt be better.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Horse Doesn't Like It I usually get the SmartLyte pellets, but goofed on the internet order and got the powder instead. My horse does not like the taste of the powder, even if I doctor it up with Karo syrup, chopped apples, and carrots. I'm sure it's a good product, but he won't eat it.
