Thanks for your question. Supplementing with an electrolyte such as SmartLytes may help encourage horses to drink by providing a source of salt. However, since dehydration can have serious consequences, we recommend that you contact your veterinarian to help assess your horse’s water intake. SmartDigest provides basic support from probiotics, prebiotics, and digestive enzymes, and may be beneficial for your mare. Since she is prone to impactions, we would suggest discussing any changes in her diet with your veterinarian as well.

I had a terrible ordeal with impaction colic in my Thoroughbred this past fall, and I now have SmartLytes in his SmartPak, as well as my other two horses' Smartpaks. Under direction from my equine vet, I have even doubled and tripled the dose, especially during weather changes. I keep a container of the powder and the pellets on hand, too. I also added SmartDigest to my Thoroughbred's SmartPak. I really think this product helps him with digestion. The consistency of his manure seems perfect most days. If you compare the price of other digestive products, there is no comparison - SmartDigest offers prebiotics, probiotics, and digestive enzymes at an unbeatable price. I feed these products in conjunction with soaked beet pulp and feed salt. Water consumption and intestinal flora balance are imperative in preventing impaction colic; these products optimize both..
I have used this product for: 6-12 month
