Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Supplement! Did wonders for my mare Started this supplement in the spring on my little dragon, erm I mean mare. The prior year I had used U-Gard which was fine but I wanted just a little something more so gave this a try. It has done wonders for her gut and belly issues. She is prone to ulcers and other gastric issues since she is so hot headed and nervous and on this we didn't have a single belly issue this year AT ALL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saving! My 25 year old quarter horse colic’d twice in a matter of two weeks. My vet told me to try Smart Gut. Within a couple of days, he was alert, he poops more completely, his coat looks better and looks like he has gained a little weight. I truly think Smart Gut saved his life....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use. Good results. I bought this a little over a month ago to help my horse. She seemed to possibly be a candidate that could benefit from this product. We’ve seen a slight decrease in attitude and cinchiness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! My Percheron mare started having gut issues months ago. SmartGut fixed her belly in 40 days! I am extremely happy with this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work great! I started using this approx 2 months ago because of ulcers. My horse eats it in his food with no problem. He seems to be much better with his ulcer problem. Eating very good now. My horse is at our trainers and seems happy, comfortable and willing do to anything the trainer asks without a fight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s working! My TWH that I got from a kill pen has colicked twice in a month after I got him. So I started him on this and made some other feed changes, and so far he’s not colicked again. Plan to keep him on this forever if necessary. He eats it no problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seemed Good? I bought this 2 months ago, hoping to see an improvement in my quarter pony's attitude. He had been on UlcerGuard and this seemed like an improvement due to all the additives. He is not a picky eater so I didn't think there would be an issue switching him over. Not only would he not eat it, he didn't want to eat his regular grain either. It wasn't until I added the UlcerGuard back in did he want to eat again. I think it was the smell as it doesn't seem as attractive. In the time he did have it, I didn't see any changes, but I assume it would take more than a month and a half to have any noticeable changes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good supplement I think it helped my gelding. We were traveling and when I rode him, you could tell he had a gut ache. I will feed SmartGut before and during our next trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Goats Look Great I ordered this for my horse but my goats were looking poorly after kidding, I decided to offer it to them instead. They LOVED it. Ate it right out of my hand and in just a few weeks they started to look better and feel better. Strong lactation, sheen to their coats and the kids that were born smallish grew by leaps and bounds. Very happy with the results

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BUY THIS!! My horse started showing signs of discomfort back in Feb. Trying to bite me when i put her girth on and trying to buck me off when i wore spurs (completely out of the norm). My trainer suggest I try a stomach supplement as we had a rough winter. ONE WEEK of feeding her the Smart Gut Ultra and she was right back to her happy self. No more bucking or biting. I fed one month of the Smart Gut Ultra and switched to just the regular Smart Gut and she has been great! Highly Recommended

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked like a charm This is the 2nd month my POA mare has been on SmartGut and it worked like a charm. I can pet her belly again and she's not trying to bite me anymore! She still is slightly cinchy but not near as bad as she used to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drastic change in behavior Adding this product, along with SmartDigest Ultra to this horse's Smart Pak has made a drastic difference in his behavior. He is back to the quiet, easy going horse he was as a youngster rather than the hot, reactive and difficult horse we have been struggling with for the past year. He is not the first horse I have seen this kind of change in upon adding this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product We had a horse that would get ulcers on the road, started feeding this product and it made a worlds difference. Haven’t had a probably since. Used it on my other barrel mare who didn’t have problems with ulcers and it helped prevent them and haven’t seen a sign since

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing So Far! I'm dealing with a very ulcer prone horse and needed something to help prevent future ulcer development. I was attracted to this product because it's one of the few out there that has clinical research to back up some of the claims it makes. We are 2 weeks into using the product, as well as a diet change to a ration balancer instead of a grain based diet, and adding alfalfa to his feed. He is like a different horse. I am amazed by the changes. No more tail swishing when I touch his sides and the girthiness he exhibited has lessened in severity. I can't wait to see what a few more weeks of this product will do. He will be on it for life!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I have to say that when I bought this product, I had high hopes because of the great reviews! My horse had been dealing with ulcers for a while, so i treated the full 28 days with Ulcerguard. I then looked for a maintenance supplement and came upon SmartGut. For the first few weeks she was on it, I didn't notice anything abnormal so I took it as a good sign. About two or three months after I started her on it, she began showing signs of discomfort. I continued with the smartpak and began giving her U7 juice that had more "natural" remedies in it. Within a few days, she was significantly less crabby. I ordered 2 big bags of the SmartGut in the beginning, so I have nearly used both up and I will not be purchasing them again. I will add that when hauling, my mare was given 1/4 tube of Ulcerguard. Presently, she is getting U7,Ushield, alfalfa cubes, and the remainder of my smartgut daily. Hope this helps someone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Results My vet recommended Smart Gut for ulcer prevention for my 22 year old ulcer-prone quarter horse. His appetite immediately improved, and 3 months later, no sign of ulcers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved stomach I have been using this for my show horse for several months now and he has had no stomach issues. Prior to this product he has had re occuring ulcers. I decided to be pro active with stomach care versus treating ulcers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Works! My 22 year old Missouri Fox Trotter would have loose and very loose stools most likely from anxiety. His vet recommended this product, she uses too. I need something to help with his stools AND palatable for my "picky" gut; it WORKS and he likes the taste!!!
Date published: 2018-02-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picky horse ate it right up Not only did SmartGut help my horse’s gut mellow out it also was well received by a sometimes picky eater. Half way thru the bag now and I have one happy horse inside and out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work for me My horse has been on this for nearly two years and he has been diagnosed with ulcers TWICE while getting this every day. I am not impressed and frankly I'm embarrassed that it took me this long to realize this supplement was not doing its job. I am quite disappointed that this did not live up to the quality of Smartpak's other supplements, as the others I've tried are great. The only good thing about this product in my experience is that it is palatable. But then again my horse eats everything.
Date published: 2018-02-02
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some improvement I began feeding this product about 1.5 months ago just to see if it would help with my horse’s girthiness and general iratabilty. I have seen an improvement, although not a total “transformation,” but enough that I will continue using this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jps Belly is much better JP had 10 pds of sand in his gut when he got him when he was 2 and now he is 11. We have had him thru different kinds of feed thru meds. He his a rope horse and btw runs he would stretch out like he was gonna potty but he had belly ache. Since he’s been on smart gut when stretches out he potty’s and then relaxes. It makes us feel so much better to know smart gut has made him feel better. Thank You so much

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I suspected gastric ulcers and started my horse on this. Unfortunately he does not like it and will not eat it. Ulcers were confirmed by a scope. This is extremely convenient, hassle-free supplementing that anyone can feed in your abscence. Just open and pour!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly palatable. I'm new to Smartpaks and very happy with SmartGut Pellets. A 5 yr old Nokota horse joined our family early in Nov. Having lived only off prairie grass & hay, traveling many miles from ND to CT, our veterinarian recommended GI support supplement to help prevent risk of colic. "Hawk" loves these pellets, I love the economy & convenience of Smartpaks, & the packaging is stackable for recycling. Most importantly, Hawk is adjusting well to his new life. Also own 6 Morgans, not a big believer in supplements but highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised. My horse has less girthing issues. Manure has better consistency.
