This disease--otherwise known as wood-evil, or moor-ill--arises from
eating the buds of oak, young ash, and other trees, which are of a very
highly stimulating or irritating character. As the intestinal canal is
liable to inflammatory action from irritant substances admitted into it,
animals are found to become diseased from eating too freely of these
vegetable substances.

Symptoms.--Loss of appetite and suspended rumination; mouth hot; skin
dry; pulse from sixty to seventy; swelling and pain of the belly;
obstinate constipation; faeces hard and covered with blood; urine of a
strong odor, highly colored, and voided with difficulty.

Treatment.--The animal should be bled, and a strong purgative
administered, followed by aconite and belladonna, as in enteritis.
Injections of Castile-soap and water should be freely used; the
application of the mustard, hartshorn, and water to the belly will also
be found very beneficial.
