The American Cattle Doctor
Written by G. H. Dadd, M.D.
The Necessary Information for Preserving the Health and Curing Diseases of Oxen, Cows, Sheep, and Swine
Every Man Can Be His Own Cattle Doctor in this 1851 Veterinary Classic
This reprint of an 1851 classic contains the necessary information so that “Every Man can be his Own Cattle Doctor.” Included is information for preserving the health and curing the diseases of oxen, cows, sheep, and swine, with a great variety of individual recipes and valuable information in reference to farm and dairy management. The principles taught in the work are: “that all medication shall be subservient to nature; that all medicinal agents must be sanative in their operation, and administered with a view of aiding the vital powers, instead of depressing, as heretofore, with the lancet and poison.”
