Dew-Born, in animal economy, a distemper to which cattle are subject: it is a swelling, or distension of the body, to such a de gree, that the creatures affected are in danger of bursting. This malady is occasioned by turning them into rank pasture, or feeding them with watery grasses. When they are thus distended, they ought first to be driven, or moved about briskly, and then properly purged. Should this treatment not relieve them, blood-letting in the tail will be necessary; after which the top of an egg should be broken off, and a sufficient quantity of the white poured out to admit the powder of a nutmeg. These ingredients are to be well mixed, and the whole, together with the shell, forced down the throat of the animal, Which should then be gently walked about; and thus it will speedily recover.
