    With the colic history that my horse has, not to mention the stress on him (and me) of doing those surgeries not once but twice, I was not about to take any chances that his colic symptoms might not be real...........

    I did not say the symptoms weren't real. In fact, I gave a very good reason for those symptoms existing. I said that for horses who have that issue with the double dosing of fenbendazole, don't use that for them again.

    I do not do a PowerPak on all horses every year. I do one within 6 months of acquiring a new horse. I typically use Quest and Quest+ in my yearly rotation. I also don't wait 8 weeks between each treatment if I've used something other than Quest or Ivermectin.

    My QH, who is 22 this year, has been powerpaked at least twice in 11 years. Maybe 3 times. Otherwise he's had Quest 2 times per year. The other horses I've had 1 year and 18 months on the other. They have both had power paks and quest in the past 12 - 18 months. I won't be using a powerpak this year on either of them.
