Research has proven that stress, in all its forms, compromises immune function. When it comes to your horse, common stresses include heavy training, trailering, competition, social changes like a new pasture mate and many others. If your horse is a senior citizen, working hard or shipped often, consider SmartProtect Ultra Pellets! These tasty pellets contain a potent blend of antioxidants (including Glutathione and Super Oxide Dismutase), bioflavonoids, herbs and other ingredients that support the immune system.

    SmartProtect® Ultra Pellets is rated 4.4889 out of 5 by 45.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth it I had my mare on this for the past year- we thought it would help with her allergies that cause her blocked tear duct to clog and the funk she gets on her legs (no it's not rain rot or anything like that, vet says allergies). I saw a little improvement but she was also on an omega 3 supplement, APF, and a few other things. This summer she switched to platinum performance but I wanted to keep her on the smartprotect ultra. Sadly, I was wrong. It didn't do a THINK and her eye is worse than ever and her legs look worse than I have seen in the 4 years I have owned her. I'm starting her on platinum performance's skin and allergy immune booster and putting her back on APF but for my mare, this supplement didn't do a think.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Approved by my picky eater My mare's EPM recently relapsed and I wanted to help support her immune system along with medication so I tried this. Along with MSM, she has improved a lot more than I was expecting. I can't directly contribute it to this supplement, but I am sure it has helped. I like that it has pretty high levels of Vitamin E, but I wish they were higher. She hasn't given me any problems eating it and she is VERY picky. I love the fact iti is available as a pellet!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did what it needed to do, quickly. After battling with an infection my mare just couldn't shake for months despite constant veterinary intervention, in desperation I turned to try to fix the problem from the inside out. This product was recommended to me along with additional Omega 3 & 6 supplementation and a digestion aid, and within 2 weeks of starting them, my mares condition visibly improved and finally seems to be resolving. Not sure what of this concoction was actually the linchpin, but I know I'm keeping her on all three for several month, till I'm sure she's 100% again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picky Eater Winter is here and I needed an immune booster for my PSSM horse who is also a very picky eater. Because of the above, I knew I needed a pelleted supplement and I had used SmartProtect before. After comparing multiple supplements, I chose SmartProtect and am glad I did.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to be helping I have a possibly immune suppressed horse who has had scratches for 3 years and has a tendency for lymphyngitis. He had it twice in 3 months. His environment has changed and I have been working on the scratches daily since April. It is now August. I decided I needed something for his immune system. Since starting this product I have seen much improvement .

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the ingredients I bought this product for my mare who had a chronic eye infection and the worst case of scratches I have ever seen at the time that I bought her. I used this product in conjunction with other treatments and herbal remedies, so, although I can't really identify how helpful this product was, it certainly didn't hurt. Her eye is now asymptomatic and the scratches are healing. I really liked the ingredients as compared with other similar products.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Stuff! So I dont really know if this is helping my horse since he has only been on it for a month, but he definately eats it which is a big bonus!He has lyme so I got it to support his immune system. He will be done with antibiotics in a week and then tested again in 8 weeks. Hopefully this is helping him out!! It seems to be. Definately palatable!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from passed the mule test This product smells good enough to eat for breakfast. Even the picky mule loves it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW I could NOT believe it when my very picky eater gobbled this up like CANDY literally right from my HAND! In fact, we both couldn't get enough of the tasty vanilla aroma.I think that the doses of C and E should be higher in this since it is supposed to be stronger than the original and also it should include Rose Hips, which are super immune supports. Its a shame that you can't find rose hips in many supplements for immunity anymore.But besides that, I would absolutely recommend this. If you only want to help or boost your horse's system go with the reg, but if he Needs more support, then I'd say go with this product 100%. It's pricey and could have more bang-for-the-buck$, but I think it is worth it.(And that's no small shanks coming from a penny-pinching-scrimping , rather pay farrier for trimming than horse stylish for hair-cut lady)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shipping Worries I put my mare on this product 5 wks prior to being shipped across the country. She has a history of respiratory issues and was recovering from an injury, so I wanted to make sure she was as protected as possible. It wasn't her favorite thing to eat but after a couple days, she happily cleaned her bucket. Within a couple weeks her coat was a neon shiny and her laceration was healing beautifully. She will continue on this product until she is well settled in her new home. LOVE it!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from works if desparate not very palitable for my fussy horse. and quite expensive, but if you are trying to avoid an immune reaction, (Lymphangitis) then it works.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great supplements. Highly recommend! My 13 yr old gelding was sick twice in a one year period, each time spending a week in ICU at the vet. The vet said his immune system was compromised, probably due to stress. Tried another brand of immune support supplement, but my horse wouldn't touch it no matter how I tried to disguise it. Then got SmartProtect Ultra Pellets. He loves them, thinks it's a treat. Also started him on SmartPak Ultra Calm. He has been noticeably less spooky and much calmer in new situations. Highly recommend these products.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Strong smell/tastes bad Added to my 22 year old TB's order after his 'brother' of 10 years died suddenly in their pasture. After a few days of being depressed and off feed he perked back up again-until this supplement was added. It has a very strong smell which caused him to refuse his grain (not like him). After a few weeks of trying we put his other supplements into his feed, but not this one and he was back to gobbling down his grain. This is one horse who dislikes this supplement.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the $$$ I have a grey TB mare whom I've been going back and forth with with a bad case of scratches. I had the idea to put her on a multivitamin to help fight it from the inside out. It does seem to be working, not as persistant with the warmer weather coming in, but I'm finding that the scabs are having a harder time sticking, and the sores arn't so red and irritated. And my horse is super picky and seems to eat this okay!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than ever I think that the addition of SmartProtect Ultra is exactly what my mare, Isobel, needed. She had suffered from scratches all winter and after adding SmartProtect Ultra she is healing faster than ever. Also, she seems to be keeping her weight better than ever. I love all my SmartPak products.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I have a 2 year old mini gelding that has serious upper respiratory problems and a very weakened immune system. I used to give him APF but felt it was too expensive and kind of a pain to feed. I switched to Smart Protect Ultra to help keep his immune system in tip top shape. So far he has not had any relapses. One thing I might add is that he does have an increased amount of hyper energy when I first get him out of the stall.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely cannot do without We have a beautiful 7 year old quarter horse mare who is a terrific little reiner. Our horse, Roxy, was discovered to have EPM (Equine Protozoal Myeloencephalitis) a couple of years ago. After a couple of treatments, we decided to try a supplement to boost her immunity. We have been supplementing her diet with SmartProtect Ultra Pellets according to the SmartPak directions, and Roxy has not had to have another treatment for EPM since. She does wonderfully in the show circuit and appears to suffer little if at all from her EPM.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beneficial My horse has been through a long lay up, a long rehab and a career change. He began to be irritable and sore. His body condition changed, and he gained weight.... despite five day a week work in full training. I suspected Insulin Resistance.I started him on this and Magnesium 5000 after two months on Smart IR, which addressed my IR concerns.He continued to improve his body condition and behavior on this combination.I researched the ingredients and what they contribute to health in horses who have experienced chronic stress. The ingedients are comprehensive for horses who have compromised immune systems.My horse ate it without a problem.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Palatable I bought this product for a couple of my Friesians that travel extensively to shows. It was fairly expensive, but I thought the extra immune protection it would provide would be worth it. Unfortunately, they wouldn't touch it... including the one who will eat anything! I ended up having to give it to a friend. What a waste.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful Supplement I have had my 28-year old Cushingoid pony on the SmartProtect Ultra pellets for almost a year. I did notice that his summer coat was a little better this year, but it did not stop him from foundering this fall. Despite this, his overall condition was great and he will be staying on it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally something for HEAD SHAKING My boy has a Sorrel coat, white face and two blue eyes. 3 marks against him in the headshaking issue. Meds didnt work, fly masks helped but not totally. So as a last ditch effort I tried SmartProtect Ultra Pellets. With the extra Lysine and Vit E it could only help...right? Well I am hear to say my boy doesnt have to wear his fly mask unless its really buggy. It has made such a difference and all the other benefits as well. Again...THANK YOU Smart Pak.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse is doing better My horse was diagnosed to have immune mediated problems - eyes, skin, and possibly digestive track. I wanted to try APF, but found out that this product has the better composition and amount of the same ingredients. Easy to give in pellet form and gives me a great deal of relief, too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Allergy Aid My horse has seasonal allergies & heaves. This product has lessened the number and severity of the occurences.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used during lay up and staying on thru the season My horse healed fast, his appetite returned, and his mood has been great. This seems like a good product, and since I do endurance I stress my horse's immune system and share water, etc. Not sure of the integrity of the herbs, but should be getting similar benefits there as APF, along with probiotics, digestive enzymes, lysine, and anti-oxidants.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product My old horse has only been on it less than a month , she had a bloody nose for months, no Vet could figure out why, being on the Ultra Pellets for 5 days, her nose stopped bleeding. Thank you, will continue to keep her on it. She also is a very picky eater and acually seemed to like it!
