Excerpt from A Manual of Veterinary Therapeutics and Pharmacology The following work is intended as an introduction to the important and extensive subject of veterinary therapeutics and pharmacology. It is divided into three parts. Part I. is introductory, and deals in a concise manner with the subjects of diagsis and the general symptoms of disease in relation to therapeutics; the actions and uses of medicinal agents are also briefly ticed in a general manner. Part II. is devoted to general therapeutics, and in it the author has followed the plan adopted by Dr. Mitchell Bruce in his excellent work on 'Materia Medica and Therapeutics, ' viz., that of discussing the actions and uses of remedies under the physiological systems of the body. Part III. deals with special therapeutics, and here again the author has arranged the actions of drugs on the plan adopted by Dr. Mitchell Bruce, which consists in discussing their actions from their first contact with the body, to their effects on the various organs and tissues until they become eliminated.
