This work went through four editions up to 1920. * INCLUDES: General examination, the skeleton, the mucous membranes and the skin, emphysema, Diseases of the digestive apparatus, examination of the oesophagus and the stomach, digestion of the stomach on a meat-diet, physical examination of the bowels and liver, diseases of the mouth, tongue, and salivary glands, diseases of the teeth, diseases of the intestines, tapeworms, diseases of the liver, physical examination of the larynx and windpipe, diseases of the nose, Diseases of the circulatory apparatus, and much more. * FROM THE PREFACE: "In writing these pages the author has endeavored to give a short, accurate, and clear definition of the modern knowledge of diseases of the dog, and to adapt his treatise to the requirements of the profession. Speculations and hypotheses have been studiously avoided, while, on the other hand, plain facts have received careful consideration. Diagnosis has been given the most prominent place, as it deserves in a work of this kind, and the author has endeavored to establish the symptoms with their relation to the disease and to confine their therapeutic treatment to a knowledge of normal and pathological anatomy and physiology, for he believes that it is on a clear and accurate knowledge of the normal and pathological structure of life the fundamental base of all clinical science lies. The writer has also included some selected formulae which he considers of practical value to the reader.
