    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective and tasty! Well, the horses seem to think they're tasty. Have both my mares on them and they gobble them right up. Effective, too. They're ulcer symptoms have definitely subsided since eating SmartGut pellets. Definitely recommend them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convinced.. Long story short, I put my barrel horse on this last year because I knew he "wasn't right". He wasn't willing to race, and just miserable to be around-- I even debated selling him this winter so I took him off of this. Needless to say, this spring I decided to treat him for ulcers because of his attitude, and I am glad that I did!! Between the treatment and the continual preventative SmartGut offers, he is the happiest that I've ever seen this horse, and we're finally able to be competitive. I am not risking the attitude he once had so I am keeping him on this indefinitely. He is becoming such a wonderful horse and decent to be around, and I can tell that the combination of ingredients really keeps his stomach happy -- which makes me happy. Thanks SP!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Supplement! I was able to stop giving my mare ulcer preventative medications(UlcerGuard, etc.) when I started feeding the SmartGut supplement. Eventing every weekend puts a lot of stress on the horse, and I was seeing a lot of symptoms such as weight loss, irritability when saddling, not finishing grain, and more. Within a week of using the supplement, I saw all of these symptoms vanish! Thanks to SmartGut, I have a much happier, healthier horse!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to be doing its job. I started using this product after treating my New Forest mare with Gastrogard for ulcers. The Merial site showed SmartGut on its site, so I ordered it, taking it as an endorsement for a follow up preventative. Before treatment for ulcers, she got to a point she could not stand being saddled. She was treated with Gastrogard for 28 days and then started on SmartGut. After a total treatment and recovery time of about 2-1/2 months, I saddled her for the first time without incident. Not even an ear flicked back, let alone her trying to kick and bite me. As I understand from my vet you cannot treat ulcers with a supplement, but the supplement can help reduce the risk of recurrence. So far, so good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for Ulcer Control! I bought this for my 3 year old Arabian, who suffered from ulcers high up in his stomach area. He was treated, but we wanted to prevent new ones from forming. With the supplements and dietary changes, he is now ulcer free!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind and holy shine!! I began feeding this product to my dry lot kept yearling stud colt whom I suspected had ulcer activity. Since feeding this product, his coat is 10X's shinier, he seems more laid back and quit biting at his sides like he used to (vet ruled out colicing, etc.) I'll be keeping him on this product anytime he doesn't have access to pasture!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick Results I have a high anxiety, senior gelding who has always been a hard keeper since day one of ownership. The more I've learned and tried, the more it would appear he had ulcers. A leasee that had him for a year put him on "U-Gard Pellets" and he was still on the lean side when he returned.I immediately started on the SmartGut Pellets and not only are they palatable, but he starting packing on weight and is overall a happier horse. The expense is a bit more than U-Gard, but when faced with the option of either... I'd happily continue his SmartGut.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful results for us After many different recommendations from friends who treated with a supplement after ulcer treatment I chose the smart gut. Even after the Ranitidine treatment our vet prescribed our guy seemed a little sensitive still (not sure though), now three montths on the SmartGut he is the old horse we know. His attitude is changed. His overall look is different. I honestly think this has just the right stuff.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to be working We got our sweet 4 year old OTTB from the track. He was physically very reactive - offering to cow-kick each time we touched his belly. His back was sensitive and we had to be careful around his body anywhere past his girth area. We were aware that many horses coming off the track have ulcers, or at least digestive issues, so I planned ahead and started a SmartPak before he came home. We switched him from a sweet feed to a high fat, low starch grain and 24-hour turn-out on grass. With the help of the SmartGut, our little guy is much less reactive physically and is gaining weight beautifully. I don't think we'll be taking him off the SmartGut anytime soon!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well for even the picky eater! Have used this product for years, when it was a powder. My mare licked it up. Now in pellet form she eats it right along with her grain. Just enough to settle her " nervousness". No clouding her thinking or performing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this supplement! My OTTB has been on SmartGut for something like two years now and has never looked better! He was in the powder but was switched to the pellet a month or more ago. He seems to prefer the pellet taste wise.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good! I started out on using smart calm and it had a reverse reaction where he actually had got worse! This was recommenede to me so I thought that I had nothing to lose, my horse went from unrideable because of spooks to very rideable. I cut the Sr. feed, smart calm and added smart gut. If you think that your horse might have ulcers then I think this will help their gut health. I'm not putting down smart calm, I just have a horse that was a little backwards as a few others are with any calming supplement can be.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good gut supplement I cant say all that much about this supplement as I havent seen as noticeable results like I do with the joint supplements, but the mare I have this on definitely likes the taste!She is definitely a mare with an attitude (mini horse with big attitude!) and I put her on these as she started cribbing when we bred her, and has continued since she foaled. I figured I would try it. I do think she has lessened on the cribbing but still cribs.
