Nursing Vs. Dosing: A Treatise On The Care Of Dogs In Health And Disease | by Stephen Tillinghas Hammond



More than half a century has passed since I gave the first dose of medicine to my dog. Since that time, I regret to say, deep under the sod lies many a victim of mistake - not willful, nor repeated when the truth was learned, but still mistake that cost me dear, as I ever deeply loved my pets. In the course of time I learned by sad experience that many of the books that I looked to for light were but ignis fatuus that led me on to the destruction of my pets and the ruin of my hopes.

-Introduction
More than half a century has passed since I gave the first dose of medicine to my dog. Since that time, I regret to say, deep under the sod lies many a victim of mistake - not willful, nor repeated wh...
-Chapter I. Importance Of Nursing
THROW physic to the dogs is an old saying that appears to be a prime favorite with many owners of dogs, who, upon the slightest indication of anything being amiss with the animals under their care, ...
-Cleanliness
Many diseases that affect aogs, and cause their owners no end of worry and trouble, can be almost entirely prevented by taking proper care of the animal, and seeing that its quarters are at all times ...
-Chapter II. Dam And Puppies
In order to present to the reader in an intelligible manner the proper method of rearing and caring for his dog, we will take him in hand at an early period of his existence; or rather, we will begin ...
-Chapter III. Diet
The late Mr. Ethan Allin has often told me that he invariably, when he could obtain it, fed his puppies, until they were about four months old, all the milk warm from the cow that they would eat, and ...
-Chapter IV. Other Foods
Although in a general way I have said considerable regarding the proper food to be given your dog, it will perhaps be better to give this important subject further consideration, for this question is ...
-Chapter V. Kennel And Exercise
As soon as your puppy begins to walk, he should have plenty of exercise, on the ground, if possible, and out of doors; but if this cannot be given him, the box stall or a pen under an open shed will a...
-Teething
Puppies usually begin to shed their teeth when they are about six months of age, although some will begin a month or even six weeks earlier, while occasionally one will begin a few weeks later. As thi...
-Diarrhoea
Diarrhoea is an ailment very common to puppies, but usually the attack is not serious enough to require any remedy to be administered. Should it continue for a longer period than twenty-four hours, ho...
-Convulsions
Puppies when teething are subject to convulsions, especially if they are of a high strung, nervous temperament. In most cases these convulsions or fits, as they are generally called, will disappear wh...
-Epilepsy
Epilepsy, or at least a tendency to it, is often transmitted from the parents, hence the necessity of selecting for the breeding kennel only such animals as are free from this as well as other disease...
-Distemper
Distemper, as it is called, is one of the most serious maladies with which the dog owner has to contend - often immediately fatal; or, if life is spared, disastrous to health, leaving the victim beref...
-Distemper. Continued
Castor oil should very rarely be administered to dogs. In cases of diarrhoea or dysentery it may be used beneficially, but in no other case should it ever be given, as its action upon the lining of th...
-Eczema
Eczema is frequently a result of distemper, as it is also of other diseases which severely tax vitality and impoverish the blood. One of the worst features of this disease is that it often exists and ...
-Need Of Proper Care
As I have already stated, dogs that receive proper care, and are kept in vigorous health, will nearly always succeed in throwing off many of the ordinary ills to which they are subject; and even when ...
-Sour Stomach
Nearly all dogs that are deprived of their liberty, either wholly or in part, are subject to what is known as sour stomach, generally caused by overfeeding, in parred digestion, or the presence of foo...
-Vermin
One of the most disagreeable of the annoyances incident to dog life is the presence of vermin. Fleas, ticks and lice are seemingly ever present, and the poor dogs must suffer untold tortures from the ...
-Canker Of The Ear
There is probably no disease to which the dog is subject that has been more improperly treated with harsh and pernicious measures than so-called canker of the ear. This, in its first stages, is simply...
-Mange
Mange is also a disease that in olden times was usually treated with harsh applications. Nearly all of the old writers upon the subject advise the use of mercurial preparations, as well as other dange...
-The Nervous System
Diseases of the nervous system are not yet clearly understood, even by the shining lights of the medical profession, and consequently the best informed are often at fault when diagnosing the case of a...
-The Nervous System. Continued
In estimating the value of any remedy, it is utterly impossible to arrive at any satisfactory conclusion without exhaustive experiment, and no physician of experience will indorse or condemn a new rem...
-Abscesses
Many dogs are afflicted with abscesses, which make their appearance upon the throat, and, rarely, upon other portions of the body. They are invariably caused by inflammation, which may be the result o...
-Colic
In no one disease perhaps is this more noticeable than when a dog is attacked with colic. Usually powerful cathartics are repeatedly administered, greatly to the discomfort and often to the serious ha...
-Worms
Among dogs of mature years there is found an occasional individual that is afflicted with tape worm. It is not, however, in many instances, readily determined when this parasite is present. The sympto...
-Warts
Warts are frequently a source of annoyance, chiefly, however, from their unsightly appearance. They are seldom troublesome to the dog, unless they come on the eyelid or near the genitals. When not too...
-Wounds
Wounds of a superficial character that are not too severe can be properly attended to by almost any one. Carefully wash them with tepid water and a soft sponge until they are free from all foreign sub...
-Forest And Stream. A Weekly Journal
The Forest and Stream believes in the recreation to be found in the haunts of deer and grouse, and trout and bass. It believes in the common sense that calls a halt in business drive and professional ...
