For A Bowel Trouble

Categories: Diseases of Animals

What can I do to relieve a horse that balls up on alfalfa at the time of

the first symptoms? I have been bothered considerably with this, and

although I know the symptoms, I can never seem to relieve the pain

before the veterinary is called.

Give the following prescription: Fluid extract Cannabis Indica, 3

ounces; sulphuric ether, 2 ounces; spirits turpentine, 3 ounces; oil

peppermint, 10 drops; raw linseed oil, 24 ounces. Mix. Give one-half at

once, balance in one hour. If not relieved give several hotwater

soap-sud injections.
