    Red Cell® Pellets is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 69.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast service and delivery A routine blood test on my 26 year old National Show horse showed that she is anemic. After a phone conversation with an extremely knowledgeable representative, I chose Red Cell. The delivery was prompt and Strawbari has an increased appetite and attitude. Thanks to all.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's working! Waiting on a follow up blood work by our vet, however, my horse definitely appears to be feeling better. More alert and more energy. Once we have the results, assuming they are better, I will rate this product excellent.
    Date published: 2016-07-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediate Improvement for Anemia I was surprised to find out my Arabian mare, who remains full of spit and vinegar at 28 years, had a blood test showing she was anemic. My vet recommended Red Cell and I immediately ordered a SmartPak for her. After a month she was showing improvement. I have added it to her regular SmartPak for a few more months until she has reached the necessary goal. I am very pleased with her improvement.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from More energy. I have had my 15yr old gelding, Harley, on Red Cell for just about one month now. I have noticed he had a little more energy than he had before using this product.
    Date published: 2016-02-17
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unfortunately Saw No Change in Energy I bought Red Cell in liquid form for my horse in early November, since he wasn't getting another shipment of Smartpaks until the first week of December and those included the Red Cell pellets. He switched right from the liquid to the pellets once they arrived, and the pellets were so so so much easier to feed and despite him being a picky eater, he gobbled them right up. However, after him being on the supplement for two months now, I saw no change in his energy level so he'll be finishing out his Smartpaks with Red Cell pellets and then won't be continuing on them. I'm guessing for some horses it's great, but for him an altered training program/better conditioning, and increased grain and hay (done slowly and responsibly) worked instead. So it seems like a great supplement at a great value, but it just wasn't what my horse needed at the time!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps with anhidrosis! A horse that I am leasing has trouble sweating and his owner started him on red cell pellets. He had been on one ac and the beer diet in the past but red cell was more accessible and easier to use since it is in pellet form. He has been sweating almost like a normal horse would and as much as he did on other supplements. Amazing!
    Date published: 2015-10-02
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product...a bit of a strong taste My mini gelding had bloodwork done during a recent veterinary exam and he came up anemic. Red Cell has always been the 'go-to' product for iron supplements since I was a kid, so I purchased the pellets. They do have a strong odor and Nozzy isn't sure he likes to eat them. He's normally a piggy so if he's hesitant than other horses might also not like the taste. He does finish most of his small portion, but is reluctant.
    Date published: 2015-09-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the results Love how well my horse is doing on this. Really has improved his energy level. He can be a picky eater and has had no issues eating this.
    Date published: 2015-09-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I used because my horse had a severe injury and became slightly anemic. Now that this product is in pellet form it is much easier to feed.
    Date published: 2015-07-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Red Cell Pellets I put my mustang on as her iron was so low. she just dragged. It great to see her run and kick with life back in her. The liquid I tried first, reminded me of giving my kids iron.

    Date published: 2015-04-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the pellet form! My horse has had leg issues since he was a baby, he needs the extra support of blood flow to help him with his shaky knees. I was feeding him the liquid type for a long time did some experiments of taking him off of it, changing amount, etc. he definitely needs it and the pellets are so much easier and less messy. Half the liquid ends up stuck to the walls or feeder!if your horse has shaky knees like mine or needs extra blood flow somewhere this helps!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does it's job My OTTB mare is a very picky eater and has to be on special grain witch was lacking in iron so I purchased this for her and she eats it right up! She's looking better then ever
    Date published: 2015-03-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what my pony needed!! Within three months, I noticed a huge difference in my pony's energy level! This stuff is awesome! One negative side is that he is a little spookier where he never spooked before. I would definitely recommend this for a sluggish horse!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What we needed! After a month of the red cell pellets I found a little more pep to my 14 year old, without making him hot. Pellets are easy to feed, feed tub is licked clean and it even dappled out his coat! A+
    Date published: 2015-01-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Red Cell Pellets Very easy to feed in pellet form compared to the red cell liquid. My guy didn't mind the taste at all and I didn't notice a change in his energy level from the excess iron. Again, much easier to feed since the pellets can be put in a smartpak

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Easy To Use So easy to feed by guys when feeding since in pellet form & in well in smart pak already using. So much easier & not accurate than liquid form.
    Date published: 2014-06-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easier to feed than liquid My horse did not like the taste of liquid red cell, but he likes the pellets. Also, the pellets are easy to mix in with their rations ahead of time (yes, sometimes I still make old-school baggies), and doesn't mold like the liquid does. Definitely an improvement!
    Date published: 2014-04-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for energy w/o the mess of liquid! I've used the liquid form of red cell for a variety of horses going back 10+ years so I was thrilled to discover it came in PELLET form. No more messy measuring cup or cleaning residual goo out of feed buckets. I started feeding pellets last summer (~8 months ago). I've bought in buckets and in SmartPaks. The dosing seems somewhat arbitrary. I feed one scoop for maintenance and before shows (or more often, the summer season) I double it for better energy. I've also noticed significant weight gain with my TB since starting him on it with no other significant changes to diet or lifestyle. That isn't an advertised result, so I have a personal theory that he was either slightly anemic or really needed the extra energy to help him keep his weight on.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Horse won't eat it Bought this product as a support for my horse who had anemia. He is not a picky eater and won't even touch it. Good price though.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for picky eaters Gives my older rope horse the extra energy she needs for competition. She is a picky eater & gobbles this right up.
    Date published: 2014-03-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely Improved!! This product definitely showed a difference in my horse. Her coat and overall energy just shined!!
    Date published: 2013-12-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest way to get Red Cell into picky eaters My 21 year old draft-cross gelding recently went through a nasty case of anaplasmosis which left him anemic. We tried putting Red Cell on a small amount of grain; (he usually only gets hay & his SmartPak, no grain) but he refused to eat it. We managed to get him to eat some mixed with beet pulp; but it's a pain to deal with bringing hot water to the barn to soak the beet pulp before feeding. A fellow boarder was using the SmartPak version and gave me a well to try and my boy gobbled it down like it was a peppermint puff.
