    SmartTendon® Pellets Original is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 263.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great! I bought this for my horse who suffered a suspensory injury, after giving him this supplement I had an ultrasound done to check the healing process. Well he had lots of healthy college and laid down and was on a faster road to recovery than initially anticipated.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple & effective My horse has been on this supplement for a couple months now. I have definitely seen an improvement with his soundness & gait in general. He had about 7yrs off work in a pasture. So naturally when bringing him back into work everything was a bit loose on him,particularly in the joints. This supplement has helped speed up the entire process of getting him back into shapeike & allowing his body to do what his brain wants.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from He likes the taste of them. My horse cut his leg this summer and frayed the tendon. In reading in the supplement catalog I noticed you had SmartTendon Pellets so I decided to give them a try and hopefully they will strengthen all the tissue around the tendon. I know they won't heal the tendon -- but I'm hoping they help get it back into shape. It is winter where I live so haven't been able to ride him -- but am hoping in a month or so to get him started getting back into shape -- and I hope the pellets have worked.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong Legs My OTTB has been on Smart Tendon for a number of years, since a "slight strain" sidelined. I think it has helped him get strong and stay strong but truth be told, I have no scientific proof of that. I will never take him off the stuff, however! :-)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horse loves these Got this to complement other modalities used in rehabbing my horse who has a serious DDFT injury. He loves the taste and it includes several ingredients that may help in healing soft tissues. Have recheck ultrasound schedule in 2 weeks so we will see....
