    D-Carb Balance is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 68.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from On month 2 zero difference at all.. Been trying this for 2 months now with zero results and zero difference at all in my mare. Going to try and give it one more month and give it three months to try and if still no changes I will cut out of her smartpaks no reason to pay for something that’s not doing anything!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff works My five-year old was diagnosed with IR in October 2019. He had developed a cresty neck and fat pockets, and had an episode of mild laminits. His weight was 1115. His insulin was tested at 100 (normal is 40 or less). While I was trying to locate a low-carb hay, I put him on D-carb and cinnamon supplements. Within three weeks, his weight was down, cresty neck and fat pockets were starting to go away and his energy was up. He was put on teff hay and low carb bucket feed by early November and in December, I also switched to a different (non-Smartpak) IR supplement that was getting good reviews, but when his insulin was re-tested mid-February 2020, it was up to 150 instead of improving. I immediately switched him back to the D-carb and cinnamon and just got results from his insulin test done last week and it was at 36, so within the normal range and he also is losing more of the cresty neck and fat pockets almost non-existent, weight down to 1050 where it should be.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sassy is eating her supplements again Sassy is loving this supplement. Too bad I wasn’t more proactive changing her months ago.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from She likes it! This is the third product I'm trying on my 13-hand, 20-year-old paint. Hard to tell under all the winter fur how she is doing after the first bag, but she came in from the pasture this evening at a full gallop--always a beautiful sight for a mare that severely foundered a few winters ago.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Contains soy I didn't use it. Soy wasn't mentioned on the SmartPak site's list of ingredients. But the bag I ordered had it listed. Customer Service was great and gave me credit. My brother is a crop duster and he said that all soy that isn't organic is sprayed with Roundup. Soy also influences hormones so I don't feed it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of use This has really helped my horse have better movement and he no longer is sore in his front feet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good resultd I bought this for my 20 year old Morgan mare that has a cresty neck, I want to be proactive in her health so she does not founder. Her diet is orchard grass Low starch and no molasses, or alfalfa.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Apparently Yummy My picky Quarter Horse eats this and is doing well. Maybe it's just retirement, but she looks fantastic. Actually, she's probably never looked better. When she was in work, in a full-care barn with half-in/half-out living, and getting all sorts of expensive supplements, I was always worrying about her weight. She seemed to put weight on easily even with daily work and had to wear a grazing muzzle. Now, she is turned out 24/7 with shelter, and gets free choice of hay, grass and water, with one (included) small scoop-lette of of D-Carb Balance in her bowl while her barn buddy eats. She is fit, shiny, happy and not a bit overweight. It may be the lifestyle change, who knows, but I will definitely try D-Carb Balance with my next horse.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some progress being made. I have a 20 year old Lusitano gelding who gains weight by just breathing I think! He gets only 1 hr. of early morning pasture time then is confined to his large stall and runout for the rest of the day except for exercise and riding. He has fat pockets at the shoulders which look like they are diminishing and he has more energy which is really good. I'm thinking there is more to be done but not quite sure what he needs to get him back in shape.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product works. My beloved, but very overweight black Morgan is slowing turning into a very handsome guy. I have been feeding him D Carb along with plain oats and hay and he has lost his crusty neck, shoulder rolls and overall blubbery look! I also think his coat, mane and tail are in better condition.
