Stress-Dr. Newell epm

I do not mean any disrespect and am so thankful for the wonderful input
all you vets contribute to the list but in regards to Dr, Newells ? on
how worming stresses the immune system:  my own vet always advised no
worming and or vacinnes on a horse that is going to compete, trailer, is
sick etc. because it is hard on the sytsem.

Worms, yes indeed are a health problem, but the chemicals used that are
"host specific" as Mr. Tivers stated are eliminated and processed
through the kidneys and liver of the horse, are they not?    Neccassary
as they are and considering the stresses of our sport, should we not be
judicial in their use?

I am very aware the cause and transmition of aids and epm are quite
different but in both the host surcumbs
because of a depressed immune system.  I will try to find the article by
the Dr. that drew that parrallel.
