    SmartMetabo-Lean® Pellets is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 356.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horse foundered within a week My horse foundered within a week of switching from Remission to this supplement. He has been on Remission ever since he foundered 4 years ago and hasn't had any issues until now. I wanted to get all of my horses on SmartPaks to make life easier, but not at this cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Results! I have had my 24 year old PercheronX mare on this for over a year now and I couldn't be happier- and neither could she! She is bright and energetic, and has even shed off some extra weight that we have struggled with for some time. Everyone is always so shocked when I tell them her age and usually think she is about half that! She still competes- she does mini events, dressage shows, hunt paces and loves every minute! I truly believe this supplement is helping her live a happier and more comfortable senior life!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just didn't see any difference Product smells great, very palatable, excellent quality however, I did not see any results. Have used this product for about a month and no change in my horse. Probably will not purchase again. Maybe in another month I would see a change just not willing to put up with no results. Love SmartPak and their wonderful service, quality of products and returns.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent results but... Just over 6 weeks, am splitting between to chubby Mini's. I've noticed the cresty gelding has become less cresty. No noticeable difference in the other. This stuff must taste horrid though. My boys didn't get fat because they're picky eaters but, they hate this stuff. After a week of trying various ways to make it more palatable, I've found a dollop of soaked alfalfa cube with supplement along with a bit of their hard feed they will eat it. Kind of defeats the purpose having to use the alfalfa though. Plus it's a pain. Will give it another month so long as I can eventually subtract the alfalfa part.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from From a skeptic I have been blessed with owning a plump fox trotter mare that never seems to lift her head off the grass. This horse is ravenously hungry 24 hours a day! I tried numerous products that had great reviews including Remission and even sent a hair sample to Simply Equine and tried their personalized supplements for 90 days..during which she foundered btw...So needless to say, I was more then skeptical about trying any more supplements, but after 3 months of watching her sadly peering through her grazing muzzle, and swelling up in her neck after only a few hours without it, I figured I would make another gamble. SOMETHING had to help her! Smartpak's 60 day money back guarantee made it a no lose situation. I left the muzzle on for the first 3 weeks on SmartMetabo-Lean, but quickly noticed her ever cresty neck began slimming! and her feet seemed less sore (she had foundered earlier that March, this was June) So now with it being dead of summer, and almost a month on the supplement, I removed the muzzle. To my surprise, she didn't balloon up! And as I saw mention in other reviews, the ravenous hunger seemed to also slowly fade as well. She spends more time under her shady lean to with her pasture mate than feverishly chomping away! It has now been 60 days, and even though I was fully prepared to be calling about now to get my money back, I'm actually ordering more! I will say, I like the feature of the smart paks, but the trick with the price being just low enough, that it doesn't ship for free IS a bit misleading. I will be ordering the bulk size and just measuring it out. But for my girl, so far it's a win!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely impressed! Mule senior molly mule has been on this for about 3 months and the changes in her are incredible. She was over weight and nearly impossible to stop from grazing. She was ravenous all the time. But after about 6 weeks I started to see changes in her eating behaviors and physique. She is more satisfied and not hungry all the time, her grass belly has nearly disappeared and she is no longer bloated and gassy after grazing. I will definitely have her on this every spring and summer when the grass is rich. Even my neighbors have commented on the change they see in her body.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good My crusty necked, 21 yr old mule has been on this for about 2 months now and the first obstacle has been passed, as she is an extremly picky eater, but loves the taste of metabolean. I have seen the following changes in her, she spends less time grazing, her stomach does not get bloated as it used to, she is less gassy, her stomach makes less digestive noise, her manure is solid and her overall appearance is smoother with fewer fatty bumps. I will definitely be keeping her on this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome results! I bought this for my mirror a month ago and she's doing awesome on it. She's 21 and looks like a 10 year old she's just gorgeous right now. She's lost weight, her cresty neck is reduced, her fatty areas on shoulders and above tail head are reduced. I am very pleased. So pleased I'm putting my gelding who is on medicine for Cushing's on it too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Lifesaver I bought this a month ago when I noticed that my new horse was blowing up like a balloon whenever he was turned out on pasture and would have not runny but loose stool. The barn owner suggested cinnamon and kelp to me but a bag of kelp was out of this world expensive. So I went home and did some research. That's when I came across Smart Metabo- lean. Within a week his bloating went down and his stool was back to normal. He also started to loose weight and muscle up nicely and in a healthy manner. His energy improved along with just his over all health. Even his coat became unbelievably shiny. I had some doubts that it was the supplement, so I took him off of it for a few days. Within two days, he was back to bloating and having loose stool. This is truely the lifesaver. As long as he's on it, he can be out on pasture as long as he wants.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horse will actually eat it Bought this to try for my horse who has metabolic problem and has been on Prascend and I wanted to get him off of it. He is very picky about supplements so wasn't sure if he would like this. Well he had no problem. It has a good amount of cinnamon which is good for helping keep blood sugars level. So far so good. He has been on it for over a month.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Strongly suggest trying a sample before buying! I bought this for a pre-diabetic miniature horse who will eat ANYTHING. He tried his grain with this supplement once and would not touch it after that. I tried soaking it, adding other grains and even applesauce (which he shouldn't have anyways) and still wouldn't even try it. I tried for a duration of about 2 weeks and still wouldn't even come near his grain. I strongly suggest getting a sample from smartpak before buying because they will only give you a partial credit if you open/use some of the product. Smells good to me and has great ingredients but if the horse won't eat it's pointless and a waste of money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Metabo-lean I own a 4 yr old TWH that has never been diagnoses with any metabolic problem but when on pasture, becomes overweight, and has some fatty deposits as well as develops a thick neck. Cash has been on this product for over a year. What a huge difference, while he remains an easy keeper, He no longer has fat around his tail head, neck is trim, as well as his shoulders. His weight remains a battle but this product really helps!! This is a great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps my insulin resistant horse! Our 11 year old horse who we got right before Christmas 2016 started developing these fatty, dimple packs all over his body as we brought him up to proper condition/weight. After having blood tests done and x rays of his hooves we learned he previously foundered and was extremely insulin resistant. We started him on this supplement and his fatty packs have gone down a lot. In 6 months we will pull blood again to re-check his levels. NOTE : this supplement has been added to a specific low sugar/carbohydrate insulin resistant diet we are working on with our veterinarian.

The difference is very noticeable. Thank you SmartPak

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Helps! I was skeptical as to whether I would see a difference in my mare on this, as she has been on several other metabolic supplements, as well as levothyroxine, to try to get weight off and get her IR under control. After only a month on this, I can already see a difference in her! It's not cheap, but I'm glad to pay for something that works, and this supplement delivers!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really works! After a little over one month on SmartMetabo-Lean Pellets, my obese IR horse lost over 50 lbs. Nothing in his diet needed to be changed since he was already on a forage and supplements that were low carb. He is just one of those horses with that thrifty genes. I'd like to see him loose more weight over the next few months.
