Diseases of Animals Remedies.
' horses. -Influenza
If marked by inflammatory
action, blood must be extracted, and thnt
quickly by making the orifice large.
Close it as soon as the , puke begins to
falter. If no febrile action is apparent,
small doses of aloes may be given, com
bined with the usual fever medicines. -It
is not. prudent to continue the alces be
yond a third drachm. Great attention
must be paid to diet. No grain is to be
allowed, but give mashes of thin gruel
kept suspended in "the box. Green food
may be offered, such as grass, clover, and
aoove all, carrots, it matters look se
rious, it will be best to call in a surgeon.
Inflammation cf the Bowels. The first
necessity in this case, is bleeding. From
six to eight quarts of blood should be ab
stracted as soon as possible. A strong
solution, of aloes guarded by opium,
should , follow. .This should be quick
ly followed by backraking, and the injec
tion of warm water in which Epsom
salts have been dissolved. The horse
should be encouraged to drink plentifully
of thin gruel, and . a : draught of two
drachais of aloes and a little opium be
given every six. hours."
Diarrhea. The treatmeni should con
sist of an alteration of the food, giving
such as is of a more wholesome and of
a binding nature, and if medicine is then
required, give the following in thick gru
el: Ginger, powdered, one drachm ; gen
tian, do, two drachms; opium, half a dra'm
and prepared chalk, one Okince. To be
carefully combined together, and repeat
ed twice or thrice a day.
Dysentery. The treatment should con
sist of a moderate bleeding, and the ad
ministration cf mild diluents, such as lin
seed gruel or tea. Two drachms, of ni
trate of potash and four drachms of super
tartrnte of potash may be given with the
gruel four times a day, and warm mesh
es and carrots offered as food.
Fever. Bleeding is in most cases nec
essary, after which gentle opening med
icines may be used; followed by proper
fever medicines. : Digitalis,- tartar emet
ic, and nitre, may be given. The horse
is ') . ken warmly clothe J, l;it in a cod
1 ' . i -v 1 ' . '. :
Sours, or Diarrhea.-Mild purgatires,
followed by astringents, are advisable in
Dysentery. This is a dangerous and
troublesome malady, and dimcult to cure.
Dry, warm stabling, with careful nursing
will do much. Dry, sweet food should
be given. Give a purgative, and after
ward make a mixture of two ennces pre
pared chalk, one ouuee powdered oak
bark, two drachms pulverized catecira,
one drachm' pulverized opium, and four
drachms powdered ginger, to which add a
little starch, and give it ia a quart cf warm
grueJ. , - .
Typhoid Fever. Cc-picfjs dri;:!f3 cf cat
meat gruel, with tincture of red pepper,
a diet of bran, warmth to the body, and
pure air, are great essentials in the treat
ment of the disease ; followed by alight
purgative, and afterward by ligi.t stimu
lants, to move the digestive organs into
Iloose. Half pint of lime water every
morning, and a tablespoonful of salt each
evening, for four or five days, will allevi
viate this disease, which most generally
affects calves and young cattle, .-in ounce
cE oil of turpentine in four ounces of
linseed oil, repeated once a week, is of
Inflammation of the Lungs. Warm
water and meshes or gruel, may be giv
en, and the animal kept in a warm, t'ry
place. If the body is cold, give two ounc
es sweet spirits of nitre, tour ounces of
liquor acetate ammonia, in a pint of wat
ter, two or three times a day.
Colic. A carminative mixture, com
posed of half a teaspoonful of powdered
anise seed and cinnamon, given in a
quart of spear-mint tea, and repeated if
necessary, is the best method of treating
this disease. A couple of quarts of thin
gruel made from slippery elm bark, is
also good, Brisk friction of the "belly,
and warm housing, should also be ued.
SAin Disease. A ceding hciicn
four drachms muriate cf cn;rr.cu. ens

Worms. Take' an ounce of dried to

salt, and a handful of. unleached wood
ashes; mix them well and give the horse
a large table-spoonful cf the mixture, in
his oats or cut-food, two Or three times a

powerful remedies, especially if combin
ed with a small quantity i of opium and
good warm ale. A solution of aloes mr.y
be advantageously added. The horoe

rubl;ed with a brush or cloth. If relief
is not obtained in half an hour it will be
prudent to bleed.. Clysters of warm wat

Mange. A Iinament made of four
ounces of sulphur vivum,. two drachms of
white hellebore, four 'ounces of oil of
tar, one pound of linseed oil will mixed
together, and rubbed in with pleniy of
friction every day for several days, with
an occasional washing with soap and wat
er, will in most cases be effective.
Catarrh. In nineteen cases out o
twenty, recovery will takelace without
any medicine, if the horse is kept free
from the cordials grooms are so fond of
administering, and allowed warm stabling
and mashes, and no heating food. A fe-
veri;all may be given mixed with a little
aloes and antimony
Bone Spavin. Take six ounces oil of
origanum, two ounces camphor, two oun
ces mercurial ointment ; mix them well
together and rub the spavin two or three
times a day, keeping the legs dry and free
. Milk Fever.' Prom half a pound to a
pound of Epsom salts, dissolved in a quart
of boiling water, and add one-quarter of
an ounce each of powdered red pepper,
caraway seed, ginger, and a gill of mo
lasses, and give the whole lukewarm at
once. If this does not act on the bow
els, another dose is to be given, with the
quantity of pepper, caraway, and giDger
doubled. After the operation, cf this
medicine, sedatives may be given if ne
cessary. Bbeding is sometimes, but rare
ly necessary iu the first stages of this dis
ease. Red Water. Take a pound of Epsom
salts, half an ounce of ginger, and half
an ounce of carbonate of ammonia.
Pour a quart of boiling water on the salts
and ginger, stir . thoroughly, and when
cold add the ammonia, , If this fails to
act on the bowels, repeat a quarter part
of it every six or eijht hours till it suc
ceeds. Give a nutritious diet afterward.
Simple Fever. In slight attacks a ca
thartic of salts, sulphur and ginger isfuf

pleurisy, and then a veterinary surgeon
should he called in to give the best chance

Diarrhea. The following will be found
suitable : Pulverized catechu, fourdra'ms,
prepared chalk, one ounce ; pulverized
ginger, two drachms; pulverized opium
nait a nraenm. To be mixed in nalt a
pint of peppermint water. Two or three
table spoonfuls given twice a day.
Dysentery. Give linseed gruel several
times a day; also administer a dose of
two ounces of linseed oil, two grains of
opium the following day. with the addi
tion of a scruple ot ginger, and two
scruples of powdered gentian.
Foot Rot. The foot must be carefully
examined and every loose portion or horn
cut away with a sharp knife. Then wash
it with a solution of chloride cf lime, and
apply butter of antimony, by means of a
stick with a piece of tow tied to one end,
to every denuded part of the hoof. It is
then expedient to wrap the foot in a clean
rag or tow, tied fast, and turn the am
mal into a dry yard or pasturage, taking
care to dress the foot aqain every day. A
solution of blue vitriol applied in the same
way, is also very much used ; so also is
Catarrh. Sometimes this assumes an
epizootic form, in which case it is difficult
to arrest its progress. Bi-chloride of mer
cury, at the rate of one-eighth of a grain
a day, dissolved in water, with the use of
a decoction of rhubarb, and the ordinary
carminative and stomachic adjuvants of
ginger and gentian, have proved the most
useful of any treatment yet tried.
Inflammation of the Brain. Abstract
from half to one pound of Hood from the
neck veins, and give a purgative, ruch as
two ounces of magnesia, afterward.
Giddiness. Caused by hyatids on the
brain. If a soft spot can be found on
the skull, the hyatid can be destroyed by
penetrating it with an awl ; but in most
cases it is better to make mutton of the
animal at once.
Haven. A teaspoonful of salt may be
dissolved and poured down the throat; or
what is better still; give a drachm of the
chlond of lime, dissolved ia water. Sul
phuric ether is also good.
Mange. - Wash the hog with warm
water and soap. Withhold every kind of
heatinn food. Give two ounces of Ep
som salts in a wrm bran mash. Give in
every meal afterwards for a few days a
table-spoonful of flour cf sulphur and as
much nitre as will cover a sixpence.
Colic. A doe of from
drachms of opium and double that quan
tity of nitrous ether, (according to the
size of the animal,) in a few ounces of
warm wa'er, is the best remedy for this
disease. In extreme cases bleeding may
be resorted to. "
