Practical Veterinary Remedies An Useful Handbook on Medicine Excerpt :

Excerpt from Practical Veterinary Remedies; An Useful Handbook on Medicine: Describing Its Properties, Action, Uses and Doses, Together With Instructions How to Administer It to the Horse, Ox, Cow, Sheep, Pig and Dog Encouraged by the success attending my former efforts in the scientific literary arena, and yielding to the earnest entreaties of numerous friends throughout the country, I have at length produced, with the assistance of the publishers, a cheap book, containing a number of pertinent facts relating to Practical Veterinary Remedies. In doing so, we wish not to usurp the place of others who have faithfully chronicled their views but as many a valuable sermon can be preached from the same text, yet clothed in more attractive language, so many a work may be written even upon the same foundation. Not that we entertain egotistical ideas regarding our own productions, but because we conscientiously aim at placing before the reader a few truisms that are of everyday importance in the administration of medicines to the lower animals. How often have we witnessed the career of a valuable animal abruptly terminated by an injudicious dose of medicine!
