Hey, it's very easy to find out what's in the smartpacks, and then find each individual supplement elsewhere to save a TON of money! At least I did that myself for my gelding. The supplements that smartpacks suggested for him were not their own proprietary blends, so I found them cheaper in bulk. :) You can also scope out the ingredients of each supplement and find comparable blends that are cheaper.
I don't know if smartpacks have their own proprietary blends. All I know is that the suggestions they made for my boy were all supplements and blends made elsewhere, and all smartpack did was individually package daily doses so that owners/care givers didn't have to mix and measure etc.
