Early symptoms should be noted and receive prompt attention; this will

often cut short the duration of the malady. The first indications

usually are a disinclination to rest in the usual place, seeking a dark

corner beneath a sofa, etc. The eyes flow freely, the nose after

becoming hard and dry becomes stopped with fluid, the tongue parched,

and total aversion to food follows. The breathing becomes short and

laboured, the discharges are offensive, and the animal creeps away into

some quiet corner to die--if before this its life has not been

mercifully ended.

On discovery of first symptoms, give 2 drops aconite and arsenicum in

alternation every 3 hours. When the nose becomes dry, and the eye

restless and glaring, give belladonna.
