I have heard lots of stories of horses that have severe colic soon after
being wormed, and I would buy the "kill-off" reaction for that.  I do fecal
checks and only worm if I find eggs.  I alternate ivermectin, panacur and
fenbendazole. (-without checking my records).  I got concerned about the
encrysteds, so did half the horses with Quest....  but look again at the
dates., they are at least 120+++ days out (except for the stallion, and we k
now that he had a tumor on his brain stem).  isn't it supposed to be out of
their system by than?  I wonder if more problems would be found if you
looked past the standard time frame.
