The Diseases Of Dogs, And Their Homeopathic Treatment | by James Moore



I have been induced to publish this Treatise, firstly, because no work exists in any language specially treating of the subject to which it is devoted; secondly, because it is desirable that the Homoeopathic System of Medicine should be represented in relation to canine practice; and, thirdly, because the ordinary medical treatment of the diseases of dogs is seldom satisfactory in its results, but, on the contrary, too often assists the disease to destroy the patient. I may be permitted to state that this work is the fruit of many years' experience, and to express my belief that the superiority of the treatment here laid down, will, if carried out with ordinary judgment, be established by its success in curing or relieving the numerous and fatal diseases incidental to the canine race.

Byron's Epitaph On His Newfoundland Dog.

"The poor dog! in life the firmest Mend, The first to welcome, foremost to defend; Whose honest heart is still his master's own; Who labours, fights, lives, breathes for him alone."

By James Moore, M.R.C.V.S, Author Of "Outlines Of Veterinary Homeopathy," Etc.
