    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked for my filly My filly was suffering from chronic diarrhea after transitioning her off of summer pasture to a dry lot at a new barn. The problem vanished after I started using this product at the maximum dose. I will say, I'm not sure if the success was solely from this product, as I also switched hay and more time elapsed to get her used to the new environment, but it is definitely worth a shot if your horse is having a similar issue. The only thing that annoyed me about the product was that the jar is only filled half way with powder.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ponies Look and Feel Great! Our summer has been over the top hot and humid. Was worried about my ponies being able to process their food well in such extreme conditions. I remembered using ProBios in the past with good results and started using it this summer. All of my ponies, including the ones in competition look great - shiny coats and good weight!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the trick! I put my horse on probios after moving him down from Washington as a two year old. He had a hard time adjusting to the lack of forage during the summer here in CA. This helped to ease his digestive upset and lack of accessible pasture daily, with his daily hay feedings 2x a day. I've kept him on the maintenance dose and will continue to keep him on this as our seasons are severe and there's constant change in what he has access food for daily forage.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 30+ year old retiree with runs - cured by probios! My 30+ year old retiree is in great shape, except last year we started battling the runs. It reached critical mass when I was washing his butt and hind legs 2 or 3 times a day. We were both miserable. My vet recommended another, much more expensive, product - which did the trick. I tried the probios after that initial treatment - and we have continued to be run free for months! Thanks probios and thanks SmartPak for the great service!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from More people need to use this I have used this product off and on.I let people know that a lot of hard keepers need this product after worming.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and affordable. I purchased this product when I moved my horse from the west coast to the east coast. I wanted a product that would keep everything running smoothly without costing a fortune. Even though my horse is now retired, I have kept him on the maintenance dose of this product to ensure gut mobility.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better consistency in manure I have a mare with high anxiety that was definitely exhibiting some discomfort in her gut area. Before going through with an ulcer scope, I decided to try to get her digestion on track to see if that would solve some of the issue. Within a week of starting her on Probios, she has had solid manure and seems much more comfortable while tacking up and under work. I plan to scope her if the problem flares again but for now she is doing much better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! Bought these for my 23 year old POA gelding who didn't necessarily need help but I figured it couldn't hurt anything. A month later and he's looking better than before and even eating less food now while keeping his weight better. HE doesn't usually like powder supplements but I've never had a problem with him eating this one up without a second thought. Happy camper only here!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy digestion I feed Probios to my three mares, my German shepherd and our two puppies. All three mares always have perfectly formed manure. I recently began feeding Probios to the puppies who had horrible stinky gas. I'm happy to report that the stink is a thing of the past. It only took about a week for the rumbly tummies to dissipate. I'm a very happy customer. I would highly recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super easy and convenient My mare was diagnosed with Lyme's disease and had to be on medication for 2 months. My vet recommended she be given Probios along with her meds. Since I board and winter was approaching, the paste form was not a convenient choice. SmartPak made dosing my mare easy and convenient (as well as cheaper than the tubes of paste) and I did no have to deal with frozen paste.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent results and value Purchased for an elderly horse recently diagnosed with Cushings and struggling a bit to develop a new feeding and medication plan. Excellent quality probiotics, recommended by vet, have helped immensely with the periodic diarrhea. Price is quite reasonable, as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product I used this product for a while until my gelding started having loose stool. At that point this did not seem to do the trick, so I switched him to a pre-biotic and pro-biotic and have not has any problems.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy tummies=happy horses Ive had my mare on probios for a few years now and she will NEVER go off it again. (found out the hard way its easier just to keep her on it). It truly helps unhappy tummies to be happy and stay happy. ...we all know unhappy tummies can mean very unhappy horses.There are just so many benefits tohaving my horse on probiotics that iSee no reason to take her off of them and for the price its an easy thing to maintain.Just wish smartpak would bring back the probios cookies! So much easier then the powder to feed. My horse eats the powder just fine but the cookies where just more convenient.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of Mind While I keep my horses on a very regular and healthy diet, they do spend a great deal of time in the pasture. Adding Probios to their diet gives me added assurance that their gut stays problem free.
