    TractGard is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 179.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from She drinks more water! I started Tractgard hoping that my mare would drink more water during this frigid winter. It works!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best. I have used numerous digestive supplements. I find Tract Guard the best. It was a surprise. After using Smart GI ultra, Succeed, Grand digest, Smart Digest Ultra, Smart Gut, Probiotics and varying combinations of several for years, it was Tract Guard that gave almost immediate comfort to several horses. For ulcers, U-Gaurd is surprisingly effective.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps with Gas Colic I have a mare who has always had a sensitive stomach. Many-a-night I've spent in a panic while walking to deal with a gas colic. Since starting her on this supplement (over a year), I haven't had any issues with gas colic. Nothing else in her diet has changed except the addition of this supplement. I'm not a big believer in supplements but I've been happy with this one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good So far, Less cribbing going on Just started with this just over a month now. My boy is still cribbing but he is only doing it just after and during eating time and seems to be maintaining good weight and seems to be less stressed. He eats it well and I am hoping we see less and less cribbing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product! My horse chews wood and has a upset stomach often and switching to this a few months ago I have already seen a difference in her GiTract.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this stuff I have a mare that came to me with ulcers and a VERY picky palate ... after trying several different supplements (after treatment for ulcers) I was not able to find one that works as well as TractGard. And it is affordable. Originally I was purchasing direct from maker, but with SmartPaks free shipping, this makes it a win win. I also pair this TractGard with Natural Factors Papaya Enzymes chewable tabs (human supplement). Have both my gals on it and the combo is working very well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind. I bought this for my senior gelding starting on a maintenance NSAID regimen. I like that this product has added electrolytes, along with being a GI buffer. I think it's great, simple coverage for peace of mind. He's eating the pellets easily in with his other supplements, no waste.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good I put my TB mare on this about a month ago. She has suffered from chronic ulcers and it has been quite a journey to get her healthy and pain-free. So far I like this product. The price is reasonable and she loves it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. I bought this a month ago after my horse finished up with 8 weeks of Equisure, and 30 days of Omemprazole treatment for fore and hindgutt ulcers. I wanted something affordable to support my mares gi tract on going. I chose this product due to its ingredients and price. My mare has not had a relapse and is no longer flank sensitive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be good! Feeding for a couple months now. Seems to be a good supplement!
    Date published: 2016-01-01
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product especially for the cost. I got this supplement a little over a month ago for my elderly gelding.It does seem to be helping him, however he is a bit picky and tends to leave this in his feed tub and just pick at it throughout the night instead of eating all of his grain and supplements at once.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not too impressed I added this to my filly Smart Paks hoping to regulate her digestion a bit. She has been at the trainer and getting loose stool bit after 2 months have not noticed a difference.
    Date published: 2015-11-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product This product was palatable for my somewhat picky horse, and it worked well to control her hind-gut acidosis, cause by the Pergolide she is required to take for her Cushing's disease. Very happy with it. I actually tried a different product the next month but will be switching back to this one!
    Date published: 2015-11-18
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My picky pony eats it! It is typically very difficult to get my Welsh-Arab pony to eat anything different. He ate this supplement right up from the first day I fed it to him. He appears healthy and happy. His manure consistency is good.
    Date published: 2015-11-13
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to be working I put my horses on TractGard about a month ago with the intent of keeping them hydrated as the weather cools. The mare will snub salt or electrolytes in grain so thought I would give this a try. They are also at a boarding stable where the hay switches often so the anti ulcer properties were also a consideration. No issues with palatability as even the picky eater gobbles it up. They are drinking and so far no issues. Too early to say if the other benefits have kicked in.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stress Relief I am relieved knowing that I have my horses on a supplement that will help combat the fear and worry of colic.
    Date published: 2015-10-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works really well, great value! My horse was prone to loose stools- we tried several things and had vet and fecal exams. We didn't really have consistent progress until adding this supplement- it took about a month, but what a difference! No loose stools ever since. Highly recommended!
    Date published: 2015-10-26
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome product! I have tried many things to combat my geriatric, Cushing's-afflicted, Morgan mare's hind-gut acidosis. Bio-Sponge did not work and she stopped eating it (too much powder), aloe vera juice did not help, U-7 only help somewhat and is very pricey but TractGuard seems to have done it! Even on the Pergolide, which adds to the problem, her loose stool and runny gas have pretty much resolved. Very happy with this product. Best part is that it's affordable and in pellet form, so she eats it!
    Date published: 2015-10-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful in weight gain I purchased this product because it is advertised as a digestaid. I was not worried about ulcers in my mare, I was worried that she was not getting what she needed from her diet of beet pulp in pellet form. This is all she can eat as she is Thirty Five (35) years old. My vet agreed that hay was no longer on the menu despite the fact that she still had plenty of healthy teeth. For the past three years I have been experimenting with weight gain supplements and nothing helped. I was grasping at straws and read that TractGard helped to break down the food that they take in and assist in the absorption. Half way through our second month I began to see a difference in her body. And now four months in, she is developing what my vet calls "fatty deposits" in her bag. She is actually gaining weight as the weather gets colder. Im so relieved that she is not going to end up looking like a bag of bones. Attn SmartPak, my discipline is not listed below. I am an avid Carriage Driving Competitor and many of my carriage driving friends use SmartPak. We would love to see you add the option. :-)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff I About TractGard last month because my 15 yr old paint was giving issues with his stomach which caused him to have the runs. A friend of mine told me about this stuff and it works great. My horse doesn't have any stomach issues anymore. I'm very happy with this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Better than Expected! I leased out my 10 year old OTTB 16'3+ Eventer, for a couple of months. while there, he was not fed properly and dropped a considerable amount of weight, he was very dehydrated and sunk in and lethargic when I went to pick him up. My horse is a very picky drinker and is prone to tummy troubles when dehydrated (compaction colic from dry matter). Also had a history of Ulcers after being pulled off the tract. He is also extremely temperature heat sensitive, so hot humid summers hit him very hard! Started Tractgard in hopes that it would increase he thirst and possibly protect his hind gut from the irregular hay/grass feedings and over exercise (while he was away), and address any ulcers. Within 3 weeks we noticed very nice moist regular stools (more than his normal dehydrated droppings), also lots of wet spots, and he was emptying his water buckets throughout the day; way more than I have seen with regular electrolytes or salts. We have not had any tummy troubles, his attitude has improved, and he also filled out quickly and the weight is returning better than expected. All around it was an incredible recovery! This product worked better than I could ever expect, and I highly recommend it if you have a sensitive horse like I do.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from No longer belly sensitive! My 20 year old TB has stomach ulcers, and was very very sensitive to the touch around his stomach. He would bite and kick if I tried to curry his stomach- but after being on this product for about 3 weeks his demeanor has greatly improved. He is much more tolerant of me grooming his stomach and seems to be in a better mood overall! He also seems to be drinking more- which is a good change for him! Its only been about a month, but I am already very happy with this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from TracGard After treatment started my ulcer prone horse on this. He is doing great. Getting fat which is good for him. Liked the results so much I started my other horse on it too.
    Date published: 2015-04-09
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Jury is still out. I purchased this item in February after rescuing my OTTB from bad conditions. He was 300 lbs. underweight and very weak. I added this product after realizing he most likely had ulcer issues as well as his poor weight and body condition. He is slowly gaining weight and building up some muscle. I only gave the 3 stars since this process is slow. He is much improved but more time is needed.
    Date published: 2015-04-06
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works really well I bought this for a mare that has soft stools every winter when she gets put on hay. We'd tried different hays/feeds, but the soft/loose stools continued. We tried one scoop with minimal results. We put her on two scoops, along with a scoop of Source daily. Her stools are now normal. I have two more mares that have mild gas colic from time to time. So far, no more problems with them either. If your looking for a good product that is a little cheaper than the Smart GI, this product is for you. I've fed Smart GI, but can't afford to keep four mares on it. This is a good product..
    Date published: 2015-03-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this product for a new horse I bought. He had a small episode of colic vet suspected ulcer have had him in it about 6 weeks and he has been doing great. Love that I don't have to add electrolytes they are in the product

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It WORKS! Great product! Used on a paint filly that was very sensitive to changes in hay and seasonal pasture weeds and it helped greatly in firming her poop! I've also used it when our other horses have had occasional tummy upsets and it seemed to work great for them as well! No issue with getting them to eat it, either!
