    That's very interesting since there are a lot of supplements out there that have devil's claw in them.

    Smart Pak! They'll put everything in individual doses for you if you want to pay a little extra for that. It's great if you're at a public boarding barn and don't 100% trust the people who will be giving it to your horse. You can also set it up so that they automatically ship out your next order when you run out.

    There have also been studies that show Yucca to be poisonous and that's in a ton of supplements. I am right in the middle of the final 2 weeks of school so I don't have alot/any time to find all of the info. But I do know that there hasn't been very many studies done on horses for a lot of nutritional supplements because its expensive. A lot of times they just extrapolate the data from dogs or humans to horses.

    I thought it was interesting too. But, this was still one of the few nutraceuticals that most vets would try because there have actually been studies that show it works in horses. You just wouldn't use it in horses that would already be more prone to ulcers (high grain, stressful living conditions, hotter horses, etc). I'm thinking about using it for my mare, but I will be doing more research first.
