    Red Cell® is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product, but not for my picky horse I bought this product because of my vet's recommendation. Unfortunately, my super picky horse started tossing his food out of the bucket to get rid of it (not the first supplement he has done this with). I switched to the red cell pellets and he is happy and healthy now. Other horses at my barn have no problem with the red cell is just my picky horse (who will also spit out an apple if it is not perfectly crisp...)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from He's Smiling from the Inside Out My friesian has had several bouts of ulcers (we scoped him to be sure) and a blood test revealed he was borderline anemic. A review of his ration balancer showed that he was not receiving any supplemental iron, so I went to our local feed store and read labels. Red Cell had the most iron. My horse started the recommended dose 9 days ago. For weeks, he was sour about work, resistant, balky and difficult to get going. Things have changed dramatically already. He isn't balking when I put my leg on. The other piece though is his over all attitude has changed, even in his stall. He does not like the taste of the liquid, but Red Cell comes in pelleted form and I switched to pellets and mix it with his other food.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Can See the Difference in Using Red Cell! I started my TB on Red Cell a few months back, and I saw tremendous change in his weight gain and work ethic! And plus, I know that he is getting the minerals and vitamins he needs. He is now ion stall rest from an acute chronic bowed tendon.. so I recently took him off red cell because I don't want him to have too much energy and become a handful when he's stalled. He has started loosing a little bit of weight, so I have bulked up his hay and grain intake but it seems to not be helping as much as it should. I just reordered and will put him on small dose to combat his weight loss and give him the minerals he needs for his metabolism to function properly.. and the best part is that it's VERY ECONOMICAL!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anemic No More! When I first purchased my horse he was slightly anemic. I was told by my vet to start giving him Red Cell in his feed. He didn't seem to like the taste or the smell very much, but he still ate it eventually. After a few months of feeding my horse Red Cell, my vet said his iron level had boosted it's way up to a normal level. After he became used to the taste he had no problem eating it. I was very happy to hear Red Cell had worked for him, I was very concerned. I would definitely recommend this product for a horse that is anemic and needs a boost of iron!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved by horse and vet My vet recommended this to boost my horse's iron levels. He seems to have better endurance since taking Red Cell, and he thinks it is a great treat. He is a very picky eater, but with this sprinkled over the top of his grain, he eats every bit. I will try the pellets next, but if he doesn't love them I'll stick with the liquid.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great supplement I've been giving this supplement to my mares for years, and they have stayed healthy and strong. It's very palatable, and health wise every blood check has proven the quality of this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FOR 1/BAD FOR OTHER This is a great product for my very mellow, lazy mare. She picks up her usually slow walk and her energy is definitely improved but level. It also enriches her red roan coat color. However, it is DIASTROUS for my daughter's already highstrung mare. Her eyes literally roll around like marbles in her skull after a week on Red Cell! So good for some horses, not so good for horses with hot dispositions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra boost My WB can be a bit lazy once the weather warms up here in the south. Red Cell gives him the boost he needs to leave the rails in the cups during the summer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works I'm on my second jug and I love it and my horse loves it (of course I mix it with a ground carrot). I feel that it have helped with my horse's cough. I'm happy with the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff! My 31yo Arab has been getting Red Cell for the past 20+ years, and my 2 younger Arabs have gotten it since they came to me. All 3 have been incredibly healthy--not even a cold for the past 10 years!
    Date published: 2010-12-17
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from tasty? Hmmm I have used red cell frequently, the only downside to the product is picky eaters may not like it. I currently have an ex-racehorse in the barn who I know has been on it before & he doesn't like it much. Molasses work better for mixing supplements & I usually feed more vivtamins than are contained in the red cell.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use it every winter I feed this to my older horses every winter to give them an extra boost. They all eat it. Blood tests before and after show that it helps.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from maintaining Bought this on recommention for older jumper. Was a hot summer and thought it would give him a boost. Haven't really noticed much difference after about 30 days, but figure it can't hurt. I'm giving it orally, so I do know he's getting it all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Red cell My horse is not a picky eater He eats most anything . Even some things he shouldnt eat.. He is 37 so I dont think he will get overloaded with extra energy.. But he likes it .. Thank you Smart Pak

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Stuff! I have fed Red Cell for a year now to our competition horses. Just a little bit makes such a difference in their energy level, and really makes them look filled out and healthy. Most horses eat it right up, but I have one that's a little picky about Red Cell, but she does okay with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product I put both of my horses on this product(one was eating dirt, so I figured he was lacking something). He is not eating dirt anymore. They both eat it with no problems. Would recommend this product to others.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommended Needed an iron supplement for my older mare. This is the only product she would eat! Works great and she is less lethargic now. Good product
    Date published: 2010-04-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Use When Necessary... My mare I've had for 9 months who just seemed to have a lethargic-type personality recently had blood work come back with a low red blood cell count (anemia). I've had her blood work done when I first got her but since she's always acted lethargic I expect the low red blood cell count was overlooked the first time. Red Cell was recommended by my vet... I tried just mixing it in my horse's feed but she knocks all the feed out of her bucket trying to get rid of the red cell, I will have to just syringe it in her mouth or maybe mix with applesauce. Smells gross like cheap children's chewable vitamins. Before: A poor creature that really wanted to be with people but was just too tired and lethargic. Now: A Horse who is just as sweet as ever with the energy to back it up. Did NOT make her hot, just made her feel better! We're not struggling to get her to just walk any more, she's happy to trot around in the arena and still be child-safe!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Red Cell Works! I have used this product in past years and was pleased with it. I started using it again as my horses just did not seem to have much energy. The "get up and go" was missing. Red cell *works* is all I need to say. You will notice a difference. It does have a strong but pleasant smell to it. All 3 of my horses accept it just fine including my mare that believes anything new is poison! You only feed an ounce or 2 although I give my Percheron 3 ounces so the value is very good.
    Date published: 2009-10-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy fix for anemia Last winter when my horse was extra lethargic we tested him for Cushings, worms and ulcers but found that his only issue was that he was a bit anemic. Red Cell did the trick! It's much less expensive than treatments for all of the other things we thought that he could have and gives him 'good work ethic' energy with a rather than 'hot spooky' energy.
    Date published: 2009-10-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW What a difference Started giving this to our percheron who was normally lethargic, in a little over a week I had a different horse. It does not make him 'hot' or pushy or unmannerly in any way he is just much more alert and wanting to do things. I am not sure about the palatability, it has been over a week and he still smells his feed every morning and then gives me "THE LOOK" but then proceeds to eat it.
    Date published: 2009-10-01
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Horse Loves Red Cell I purchased Red Cell when my horse had a borderline low red blood cell count. He is also on antibiotics which can be hard to get him to eat willingly. Not only do I feel good that he is getting the extra supplements he needs, but he loves the yucca flavored syrup and now even eats his medicine without leaving any behind in the bucket. To me, it is worth purchasing just for that plus!
    Date published: 2009-09-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sure Fire Winner Our calf horse had seemed to have lost that "spark". He seemed a little lethargic, and the twinkle in his eye was gone. After a friends suggestion we put him on this. All I can say is wow! It pepped him right back to his old self. My boy is back. I'd reccomend this to anyone.
    Date published: 2009-07-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from energy in a bottle I have an older horse who I still actively compete. He does great, but in the summer months he gets tired a bit faster in our intense Florida heat. We compete less, but I also supplement his diet with RED CELL to help keep his energy up for the 4 months or so of worst heat. Come the cooler months he is his usual frisky self and doesn't need any additional supplements! I just mix it right into his feed as recommended and it works great! He eats it right up. I think the first couple times he was a bit wary of the new smell in his food, but once he got used to the smell and taste I haven't had a problem since.
