    APF - Advanced Protection Formula is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 77.
    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.
