Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed.

It retention of faeces and urine persists, we should, in the larger animals, back-rake the patient from time to time, and should apply slight pressure on the bladder with the hand. We may use the catheter in females; and enemas with the smaller animals. As regards medicinal remedies, we may exhibit narcotics tentatively, as for instance, enemas of chloral hydrate, 50 to I00 grammes or more, pro die, in two or more doses, or, say, 10 grammes every hour, in thin mucilage for horses; subcutaneous injections of morphia (% gramme of the hydrochlorate for horses); inhalations of chloroform; injections of ether into the rectum (25 to 50 grammes pro dosi). Medicines should not be administered per os on account of the danger of trismus being set up, and of the liability of the drench or ball going the " wrong way.."
