    APF - Advanced Protection Formula is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 80.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Palatable and easy to use I bought this for a horse with summer sores. He gobbles it up in some chafe hay and I expect he will stay on it until I know he is better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this for my horses conjunctivitis and it seemed to help. He also had something going on with his ho and I was having a hard time clearing it up until I start using the APF I will continue to use this I do think is helping his immune system

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to feed. This cube is like a treat. My mare loved it. She quickly had fewer hives when other horses hives increased on a windy weekend. No way to prove if it was because of stronger immune system or a change in the season. She had lots of hives all spring so I wanted to give her a boost. Will definitely order this again next spring.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product I bought this product to support the immune system of my minis. I give it our normal size horses also. I believe it helps them should they get into a stressful situation.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a good fit for my mare I've had her on this for two months now and I find It didn't do a whole lot for her. She has severe allergies, I was recommended this product and smart immune, both did nothing for her. May work better on a horse not so severe. I ended up seeing an allergy specialist.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My horse is happier As my horse changed the barn, it is hard to say if this product is the 100% cause, but my horse is happier now. It seems that her chronic skin condition is improving, her focus is better, and in any event, she loves the muffin!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for cellulitis My horse was quite prone to cellulitis, getting it several time a year. I started him on APF and, knock on wood, have not had a single case of it since and it has been over a year. I started with the high end of the dose recommendation and have weaned him down to 1 ml twice a day. I like the liquid as I can easily adjust the dosage if need be.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from still looking for a solution for heaves second product i've tried, but still not quite solving the respritory issues. will keep trying.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT RESULTS! I have a 9 yr old mare ...never had any problems until early fall of 2015 after show season. I use her western pleasure and last year she started to show slight signs of allergies ...symptoms would come and go...wasn't too concerned until fall she broke out in HIVES! and for 5 months.Wanted to avoid steroids because of side effects...started to research ...ended up being stress..contacted smartpaks and they recommeded APF .shipping was quick and started the day i received supplement and within 2 days hives were GONE! I highly recommend this product for daily maintance for immune health and my mare seems more comfortable than before
    Date published: 2016-03-15
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from No noticeable benefit My mare has allergies and PPID. I have been feeding APF for several months with the hope that it would provide additional support for her system. Unfortunately, I did not notice a difference while feeding this and she still gets hives despite being on a daily dose. It is too expensive to feed "just because." I am disappointed since my picky mare didn't mind the taste! I appreciate that SmartPak offered this on their SmartWafer - my horse always ate it!
