Garget, a disease incident particularly to black cattle: it is attended with a swelling of the throat, tongue, and the contiguous parts ; and supposed to arise partly from over-heated blood, partly in consequence of eating poisonous herbs. - To prevent an attack of this disorder, it has been recommended to bleed the animals in the spring. But, if it has a ready-taken place, the mouth ought to be examined, and washed with vinegar. Others advise an incision to be made with a knife, below the tongue, in order to let out the blood and water; afterwards to wash the wound with a solution of salt and alum, in vinegar. This., however, appears to us a hazardous practice, of which we have had Bo experience.
