    SmartTendon® Pellets is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 242.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doing better! My gelding hurt himself and ended up with tendinitis and pulled check ligament in his RF. He was on 8 weeks of strict stall rest. He has a handicap in his LF so he depends so much on his RF and it works overtime. He has just been upgraded to go in the medical paddock the barn owner/manager built for him. Heat is gone from his leg and swelling is MUCH better!!! The check ligament is much less pronounced and he's walking comfortably. Surely this supplement has assisted in his improvement. Phoenix is a very picky boy -- like the princess and the pea-- he notices the tiniest change! He readily ate this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved Maggies Life I have a Halflinger that suffered a serious injury in Sept. She severed her front right tendon. Her old owners wanted to put her down, but she told me she wasn't ready so I took her into my care. Once the wound itself healed up I found out about these pellets. I am not sure if it was just a coincidence, but a week into a regiment of these pellets and me staying consistent with my rehab routine, She is no longer on stall rest and soon I think I can let her go inside and outside as she pleases.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too early to tell, but less stiffness I bought this product as a backup to the joint supplement my 17 year old mare is receiving because the hereditary issue she has is due to tendon weakness, causing her ankles to swell and become unable to stand upright. She's been on this product for about a month, and I don't notice her standing holding her leg up as often, and the swelling has gone done some. She will never recover from this issue unfortunately, but she is definitely more comfortable than she was a year ago.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ingredients Necessary for Ligament Support My horse suffered a ligament strain and needed a supplement that contained collagen and other buikding blicks for strong ligaments. This supplement is specially formulated to provide support for an injured kugament. I have noticed marked improvement since using this product.
