Inflammation Of The Kidneys

This disease--sometimes called nephritis--occurs occasionally in cattle

in consequence of their eating bad or unwholesome food, or of the abuse

of diuretics, etc.

The symptoms are very insidious in their approach. The loins are very

tender upon pressure; the urine is voided in small quantities. As the

disease advances, the symptoms become more marked and acute. The animal

is dull, and feeds daintily; the evacuation of urine is attended with

increased pain, and the urine is highly colored and bloody; the nose is

dry; the horns, ears, and extremities are cold; respiration hurried; the

pulse full, hard, and throbbing.

Treatment.--Give one pint of linseed-oil and ten drops of castor-oil,

mixed together; follow this with small doses of salts once a day, for

three or four days; give injections of water, one half a gallon to two

ounces of tincture of arnica. Mustard applications to the loins are also

very useful.
