    SmartGut® Ultra Pellets is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 246.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great supporter of gastric health Treating gastric issues is something no horse owner wants to deal with. I recently ran into this problem with one of my horses, he became incredibly bitter and touchy about his girth, he was clearly in pain, and he's a chronic cribber so that did not help matters. After going through the vet-recommended treatment, my vet directed me to put him on a gastric support supplement to help avoid any future issues. I decided on SmartGut Ultra. Since being on this supplement, his gastric health has been phenomenal. No more irritation, and although the cribbing hasn't stopped - the issues and behavior have no recurred. I can rest easy knowing that my gelding is getting the best support so he doesn't have to go through that gastric upset again.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ineffective I put my horse on this before beginning the weaning process from Nexium. After doing a prolonged weaning from Nexium and acheiving full therapeutic benefit of this supplement his ulcer symptoms returned. After being on this product my horse was scoped and was found to have keratinization over large areas as well as a few inflammed spots. This did not prevent preulcers nor did it maintain the benefit that Nexium provided. Nexium eliminated my horse's ulcer symptoms, and this supplement did nothing to maintain it. My vet recommended Platinum Performance Gastric Support instead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this product a little over a month ago, the results were good. I did change products to the SmartGI Ultra pellets as I felt that there were more healing ingredients in it. But the SmartGut worked and my horse was feeling much better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product I love Smart Gut Ultra. I first used it over a year ago. My picky eater of a horse was showing symptoms of ulcers. I started him on Smart Gut Ultra and within a week he began to enjoy eating again. Also as a bonus, he became less of a hard keeper. Since then, I've put 6 other horses on it and they have all flourished. Smart Gut Ultra has become my go to supplement for my horses. Thank you SmartPak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from seems to work I started my older gelding on ulcer supplements due to herd bound issues,anxiety, and occasional gas colic. He is more comfortable and relaxed. Probably the magnesium is a big factor. He eats it greedily. It seems this has made a difference.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like Ulcerguard My horse gets tummy trouble every time he has minor episodes of pain - a shoeing issue; his saddle needs adjusting; he gets vaccinations - well you get the picture. He's a sensitive guy. Sometimes it takes me a bit of time to sort out where he is uncomfortable and by then he's gassy and showing several signs of an ulcer. He has scoped positive in the past. He gets Smart Gut Ultra Pellets every day - 2 scoop. One time when he was showing signs of an ulcer, I decided to double up on his Smart Pak and found within a week he was fine. Since then I keep a 5 lb. of SmartGut on hand and if we hit a rough patch, I add an extra scoop each day. I have not had to use Ulcerguard in a long time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for my ulcer-y gelding I treated my horse for ulcers and was using enteric-coated omeprazole granules as a preventive for 2+ years. Expensive, but waaay less than GastroGard or UlcerGard. When there was a hiccup in shipping the granules, I had to find something else. After much online research, I chose SmartGut Ultra -- it was the only product that had research to back up the claim that it prevented the rebound effect of taking a horse off omeprazole. It's been 18 months now and it's working great. No problems with palatability at all and no ulcer-yness whatsoever.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't work but very palatable My horse stopped eating grain and hay when he was moved to a new barn so I treated with omeprazole for a month weaned him into 1/4 dose and started feeding smartgut ultra and stopped omeprazole after three days. Seven- eight days of just smartgut ultra, no omeprazole, and he went off grain and hay again after coming home from a trail ride over to his old barn. the anorexia wasn't as bad as 6wks ago but I'm back treating with omeprazole and disappointed the smartgut ultra didn't work well enough. He liked the taste until the day he went off grain again

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeping my horse comfortable! I ordered this product after consulting your very knowledgeable person as a follow up to prescription treatment for ulcers. There has been no recurrence of signs of discomfort and the horse has returned to his former happy disposition prior to diagnosis and treatment. I plan to continue using this product. Smart Pak wins again!
