SmartLytes® Pellets

SmartSupplements by SmartPak
- Item #19585
Form: Pellets
Maintenance Dose: 2 SmartPak Wells



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 Pellets 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 Pellets are carefully formulated to mimic the mineral losses in equine sweat. This formula also includes Trimethylglycine to help cells maintain normal fluid levels. These tasty apple-banana flavored pellets are sugar free and an excellent choice for even the pickiest eater!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really for picky eaters My super picky gelding does not even know that these electrolytes are in his grain and he eats them all right up

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peace of mind! I bought these for the hot summer months, but I've also been using them this winter since the temperatures have been bouncing from warm to cold, and because it is just as important for horses to be hydrated on the very cold days as it is on the very hot days. These pellets give me peace of mind that my horses are getting the appropriate water intake. I feed them on an 'as needed' basis rather than every single day. Also, while my one gelding loves his salt lick, my other one barely uses his, so knowing that he gets these pellets makes me feel better about him getting the proper electrolytes and water intake. These are 50/50 palatable. Somedays my geldings will eat them right out of my hand; other days, they won't touch them unless mixed with their grain. My pony eats EVERYTHING, so his not eating these out of my hand somedays tells me they must be super unpalatable somedays while not other days. Other than that, these have been a great addition to my horses' diets. I also love that they come in a pellet form because I know whether both my horses are ingesting the full dose.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my guy I bought this product for my horse who was not drinking enough water in the winter time.  He wasn't too fond of the icy cold water and after giving him this supplement he started drinking normally once again.  He had colic surgery sometime ago and it was important for him to keep hydrated and this did the trick.  Saw it working immediately! Will for sure keep in my smartpaks from now on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for my picky eater! Powder electrolytes were getting left at the bottom of the feed bucket.  I needed a pellet electrolyte, and my picky mare eats ALL of this!While using these electrolytes, we didn't experience any of the muscle cramping and tension that we had been seeing before electrolyte supplementation.  We will be revisiting this supplement when the weather gets warm again!  I couldn't be more pleased with this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse actually eats it! My horse HATES salt- he wont even touch his grain if he thinks that there is loose salt, electrolyte powder, anything, in it. My vet was concerned since he wasn't sweating as much as he should be, but no matter what i tried he refused to eat any electrolytes or salt. I finally tried this and am so glad that i did. He will eat these pellets with no problems, which is amazing, and he is sweating well again during our rides. I would definitely recommend these pellets!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great option With our Colorado altitude, hot, dry summer days and steady work, I want to ensure my horses are maintaining a correct electrolyte balance, as well as good hydration. Even with free choice salt blocks, I couldn't always be sure that the horses were using them. SmartLytes makes it easy to be sure the horses get what they need daily. And they must taste good (which can be an issue with electrolytes) because my horses polish their feeders.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For Non-Powder Eaters My horse refuses to eat any kind of powder, including electrolytes. This product is perfect and I know he is eating it. Even non picky eaters tend to leave the powder at the bottom of the bucket and then it gets all clumpy and nasty. I definitely recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the pelleted option Great idea to do electrolytes in a pellet form. Only my super picky guy wouldn't eat these, my other two gobbled them up!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Electrolytes! My horse, Peddler, had the thumps (horse hiccups) on and off for a while. Thumps are caused by stress and electrolyte deficiencies. If a horse suffers from thumps for a long time they become more prone to colic. Obviously I wanted to fix this problem as soon as possible! I tried using other popular electrolytes and they never worked! I decided that I would try these electrolytes and see if they worked and they worked wonders! Peddler hasn't had the thumps since I started him on SmartLytes! I only wish I had tried them earlier!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse drinks more! I have a very picky eater and drinker. We compete heavily in Dressage and I needed my guy to drink way more water this summer in the heat. Started him on Smartlytes in June and I believe the banana smell turned him off of eating the smartlytes at first. I had to feed him the required amount in 3 feedings to mask the taste for him. It took me 2 months to get him to take the full amount at one feeding. He now eats them up without any problems.He does drink way more water and I feel better knowing he's getting all the minerals he's lost in working out. I love that they are in a pellet! He never ate the salt electrolytes so anything pellets are good! Im happy and will continue to use smartlytes year round.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great balanced product I am feeding this year round to my eventing mare to keep her hydrated. I read that many keep their horses on such a product all winter to encourage water drinking. She scarfs it up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Effective way to keep our Draft/TB cross balanced when he goes out X Country and jumping stadium. He sweats so much we had been worried about him, but now we know he's getting what he needs...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Palatable I am a firm believer in electrolytes; however, often they are left in the feed tub. This is never an issue with these electrolytes. They are all eatten, no waste or left over mess in the feeder.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SmartLytes Get Eaten! My horse manages to pick through her grain magnificently leaving any and all powdered supplements and electrolytes. I was pleased to find some electrolytes in pellet form, and they get eaten! Nice assurance for me that in the Tucson summer heat, my girl is getting reliable electrolyte support.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC!! I LOVE these pellets. My horse will not touch a powder. I have been looking for a pelleted electrolyte for a long time. I went though every powder until i found these. My horse loves them and eats all of it. Hes a heavy sweater so im not worried hes getting what he needs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Love that Smartlytes are pelleted and my horse eats it without leaving anything behind. I keep him on it during the summer and in the winter when it is very cold to help with fluid intake.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps Replenishes My horse sweats a lot. The more he drinks, cooler he stays. This product helps replenishes his system. I used this product for the second time this summer. I will use it again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the pellets For years I have used electrolytes that horses pushed to the side and left in the bottom of the bucket. Finally they are actually getting inside the horse! Great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Electrolyes Your Horse Will Eat These are the only electrolytes my horse will actually ingest. If you have a picky horse, these will be your favorite too. I love pelleted supplements and wish everything came in pellets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Hot Weather After moving my horse from the northwest to Arizona, one of my main concerns was how he would handle the heat. SmartLyte pellets eliminated my concerns, I add them into his grain each day and he loves the taste. It ensures that he gets the right balance of essential electrolytes and stays hydrated daily.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will never use a powder again! We Love this product! I have always felt like the powders caused a lot of waste and many horses wouldn't eat them. Thanks for these great pellets!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Ever I really love this product because even though my horse sweats non-stop he drinks a lot of water but not getting salt because he is in a grazing muzzle.
