    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is AMAZING!!! I have a miniature horse who is 5 yrs old. The lady who had him before, her full size horse kicked him and she never had him checked out by the vet. So his stifle is now fused to the outside of his leg.We did estrogen shots but the wore off after a while, and are pretty expensive.This seems to be the BEST joint supplement he has been on.He is just a pasture pet and cuddle buddy, but I still hate to see him out playing on 3 legs.On this he doesnt limp or anything! As he is only 31" tall so he gets a half dose and that does the trick. I will NOT be taking him off this supplement!!! He seems much happier!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Pony = Happy Owner My horse was diagnosed with navicular disease. Between the corrective shoeing, the osphos shot and the SmartTLC Pellets we have a new horse! He's happy and moves out freely. Its a relief when you find the right combo of joint and exercise. I am happy and most importantly the horse is happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well for my senior. My working senior no longer walks out stiff and moves more fluidly. He loves the taste. He gets excited when he hears the package, as if he is getting a treat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works and is picky-eater approved! I bought this supplement a month ago, and I can see that it has given my arthritic horse relief. Plus, my finicky picky eater eats every pellet! Thanks to SmartPak for sending taste samples pre-purchase. Who ELSE does that?!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Results I have two older horses that both suffer from arthritic changes in their feet and ankles. I have been using this product for almost a year and it has offered great results in their mobility. While they are still stiff, they both seem to work out of it much quicker.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Relief! We have recently started using this product on our 28 year old Quarter Horse gelding. He was having trouble getting up from laying down and required our assistance to help him successfully rise. After feeding Nevada TLC for a week he was able to consistently get up on his own. Over the course of the last month there have only been two instances where he has required our assistance. We are relieved at the results as we were especially concerned with winter around the corner. Nevada is one of our go to school horses for young beginning riders.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from My horse wouldn't eat this My not-picky horse refused ALL of her grain when I added this product- even when I added it to beet pulp. No idea if it works, since she wouldn't eat enough to rate effectiveness.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Horse loves product! Bought product and seemed to work within a week. My mare is 18 years old a Reiner and she needs some relief for joint pain management. Was using others products, like this one best.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for Laminitis/Cellulitis flare up! My 17yr old gelding started with a bout of cellulitis that ended with a laminitis flare up. What a mess! After a round of good antibiotic and pain killer we were able to switch to smart TLC and because of its excellent anti inflammatory benefits the swelling in the cellulitis leg has come almost all the way down after a month on this and after a few weeks in started to see benefits with the laminitis as well. Over all it worked good for my gelding. Totally with a shot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great for multiple isues I purchased this product 60 days ago for my three year old who was having growing pains from her growth plates being open still. Now that she is on smart tlc she is moving freely and has resumed training under the guidance of her vet. This same filly has a stocking up isue when stalled it has done wonders for that problem as well. She is a picky eater and I have had no problem with her eating it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our picky gelding didn't seem to have any issues eating this when we first started it. He was however, very lame. He is still arthritic but this, in addition to his Smartflex I Maintenance, seems to have greatly improved his mobility!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well! My OTTB has a 6 out of 10 arthritis in his hocks per my vet. When riding heStarts out stiff and works out of it! I have noticed less stiffness since he has started TLC...of course some days are better than others! I believe that it hasoverall made him feel better! Waiting for the weather to improve so I can ride more but as of now I am very happywith this purchase!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for me. My 14 year old gelding has been on this for two months now, and I haven't seen a difference...still unrideable. He has been having problems with his front end, and this isn't doing it for him. Will switch to something else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be helping horse with kissing spines I'm optimistic that this is helping my horse who was recently diagnosed with kissing spines. So far, we have treated with Tildren and back injections. I saw a slight improvement immediately with the injection, but he was still ouchy. About 4 weeks after injections, I added this supplement. Two weeks after that, I saw improvement. The chiro has me manipulating the horse's spine every day, and every day he acted like he wanted to bite my leg when I did it. After being on this for about 2 weeks, that behavior went away and he doesn't so much flick an ear when I touch his spine. The real test will be in spring when we get back to work, but my horse definitely seems to be in less pain because of this.My horse is a hoover who will eat anything, so I can't speak to palatability if you have a finicky one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staple for older horses I have two 26 yr old horses who both have old joint injuries. When winter comes I put them on daily doses of TLC and see a tremendous difference. We now have it on hand always!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from TLC provides TLC! This is a great name for this product!  My horse is more comfortable after getting some Tender Loving Care! There is an obvious difference! My horse is a picky eater and didn't hesitate when TLC was added to her feed.  Great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I decided to give this a go in an effort to help my OTTB recover from pedal osteitis (inflammatory disorder of the coffin bone). I truly believe that SmartTLC was the biggest factor in his quick recovery. He was comfortable and running around like a young Thoroughbred should in no time! 
    Date published: 2013-11-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made a huge difference, fast! I have a paint that is about 20, has arthritis and what the vet described as, "A bone spur that looks like a unicorn horn on his knee." We were having to bute every time he worked circles, I was putting linament on 3 times a day and he was stocked up every morning.  After only three weeks we are doing NONE of the above AND he is running around his paddock. I couldn't be happier, thank you Smartpak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for riding school pony! My family runs a small riding school and our 24 year old pony has been getting sluggish and difficult to handle due to discomfort of aging and working. After having him on SmartTLC for a week, I am ALREADY seeing a huge improvement! He's actively trotting and cantering on cue again and doesn't seem at all uncomfortable. He's picking up his hind legs and working his hind-quarters the way he's supposed to and is back to his spunky self. LOVE this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be working. I was looking at buying a 12 yr old heading horse about 4 months ago but he was lame. I had him Vet checked and confirmed he had navicular. I spoke with some of my roping friends who had the same issue and they said put wedges on his front feet and get him on Devils Claw Root. So I decided to buy him anyway. I put 2 degreeegg bar wedges on his front feet and started looking for Devils Claw on the internet. The Smart TLC pellets had a lot of good reviews and a high % of devil claw root so I bought it. After 30 days of the shoeing and being on the TLC I have not had any lameness. I am hauling him, competing and Bay works with no lameness. It has been 3 months and it seems to be working good. Thanks for a good product.
