Every horse owner dreads being told their horse needs to go on stall rest, but it’s often an unavoidable component of a rehabilitation program. There are many things that can be done to assist in keeping horses comfortable while on stall rest, including providing comprehensive support to help them rest and recover. SmartPak is excited to introduce SmartR&R Pellets, a thoughtfully designed multi-purpose supplement including ingredients for recovery, calming, and digestive support for horses on stall rest.

SmartR&R Pellets

“SmartR&R Pellets are designed to support your horse during rest and recovery so he can come back strong,” said Casey Fleming, Product Manager for SmartSupplements at SmartPak. “This supplement comes in a tasty pelleted formula and offers a broad selection of ingredients to support normal healing, maintain a balanced temperament, and help manage digestive stress.”

This product combines the active ingredients of three popular supplements, SmartFlex Rehab Pellets, SmartTranquility Pellets, and SmartDigest Ultra Pellets into one formula. The ingredients from SmartFlex Rehab Pellets help aid in normal healing, support healthy joints, tendons and ligaments, and encourage a normal response to inflammation. The herbs from SmartTranquility Pellets, which include valerian, vervain, and chamomile, may help horses remain cool and collected during stressful times such as stall rest.

Changes in diet, lack of turnout, and a sudden decrease in activity are all proven risk factors for digestive upset. Unfortunately, these factors may be unavoidable when a horse goes on stall rest, so providing support to keep the digestive system healthy and balanced is a smart strategy when horses are laid up. SmartR&R Pellets provide clinically researched ingredients, such as prebiotics, yeast and enzymes to support hindgut health and help manage digestive stress. Since SmartR&R Pellets contain the active ingredients of SmartDigest Ultra Pellets, this formula is eligible for ColiCare, SmartPak’s free, $7,500 colic surgery reimbursement program.

SmartR&R Pellets are the newest addition to the exclusive line of SmartSupplements. All 60+ SmartSupplements are available for the best value when ordered in the SmartPak supplement feeding system, and SmartR&R Pellets qualify for free shipping!

A note for competitive riders: Several of the herbs in SmartR&R Pellets, including valerian, are prohibited for use during rated competition. To learn more about SmartR&R Pellets, visit www.SmartPak.com.
