    SmartTendon® Pellets is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 299.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought this a month ago for my 20 yr. old mare who has a history of having tendon problems. She is moving SO much better now! I am so happy with this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly helpful I’ve had my mare on this for a month now I have to say I was skeptical. She tore a tendon two years ago the fly stomping made her lame again. She is no longer lame after a month. She seems to be putting on good muscle.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn’t see improvement I started my horse on this as so as I learned he has a suspensory injury he was on it from April 2020-Aug2020 and I will not be getting it again in my sept smartpak as the vet really isn’t seeing very good healing in general so I don’t think this has helped much in my experience. Horse has no issues eating it

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! I've been using this product for quite a few years on my now 13 year old mare. I've tried taking her off of it a few times, but each time she will start to get sticky stifles again and her back end will catch randomly. As long as she is on this supplement, we don't have any issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SmartTendon is a smart choice We discovered severe tears in bith hind suspensories in my mare in January. When I finally got my wits about me, I immediately went on to SmartPak to find out how I could better support her during rehab. We did 4 months of SmartTendon pellets combined with various therapies and her regular joint-wellness supplement from a different vendor. As of July, she has 80% healing in left leg, 70% healing in right leg. I do believe having this support for my girl aided in this much healing this fast, she had the building blocks available for the external therapies to work together and make healing happen. In order to better combine her various supplements, I have switched her to SmartFlex Ultra, the levels of collagen and silica are not as high but I wanted to eliminate feeding 3 things and feed just 1. I definitely would put this back in her SmartPak for full support should we see a regression in healing. My girl is worth it and SmartPak comes through with their great formulas and varieties of Smart brand supplements.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this!! I have a horse with a torn suspensory suspected to have ligament desmitis and this is 3 months on it the first 2 months the swelling was bad and nothing seemed to work until I tried this! Swelling is down he doesn’t lay down as much anymore and when he gets up he can move more comfortably! Firm believer!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't Work I have had my horses on this for 2 months and it has not helped them at all. I gave it 2 stars because the horses loved the taste and because smartpak customer service was very helpful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Senior preventative We bought this for a 16 yo barrel mare to keep her tendons flexible. Will update after we use it when she is under heavy exercise.
