Canine Pathology: Or a Description of the Diseases of Dogs, Nosologically Arranged, with Their Causes, Symptoms, and Curative Treatment (Classic Reprint) by Delabere P Blaine (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from Canine Pathology: Or a Description of the Diseases of Dogs, Nosologically Arranged, With Their Causes, Symptoms, and Curative Treatment As by common consent I appear to be considered the Father of Canine Pathology, it follows, of course, that it will be expected of me as a parent that I should from time to time be doing something for the child of my adoption. Not to disappoint such expectations, this edition will be found to present some important alterations and additions. The anecdotical portion, as t necessarily connected with the subject at large, has here given place to a more extended inquiry into the animal himself, and to the introduction of some canine diseases t ticed before. The matter of the work is w divided into three parts. The first embraces the Natural History of the Dog, with an Inquiry into his primeval origin, and into the probable sources of his prominent varieties. Tlie second part is, devoted to a theoretical and practical consideration of the System of Breeding and Rearing these Animals, with their general Treatment, as our subservients, and the means of keeping them in Health. The third part comprehends their Diseases, when their health has been attacked; the alphabetical arrangement of which, in former editions has given place in this to such a methodical classification as, while it renders it t less easy of reference to the amateur, will be more acceptable to the professional reader, from the relative view it will afford him of the various subjects thus congenerously grouped.
