It may just be my vets experience, but she specifically said don't use quest. The gel is absorbed very quickly, so she said inacurate doses can cause problems (under or over.) She saw three horses this year who all got ulcers from it. It could be from worms in the mouth, but my point is simmilar products don't have those effects she saw.
I used PP on my horse about 6 years ago, he had an infestation and that why the vet recomended. That study wasnt out then. This time around when my new horse got an infestation we used pills. With the PP the vet told me not to ride the horse till it all out of his system, and I was advised to call the vet if I saw anything unusual. This time around the vet didnt say anything about adverse effects. I've only been told to use PP when absolutely necessary, when you know their is an infestation.
How sever is the GI inflamation? Does it go away quickly?
