a great improvement would be n^a/fle in the condition of horses and
other animals if just the proper remedy were used when they became
ill or injured. If your horse could talk he would ask you not to use
any external remedy containing alcohol because it slings and tortures
his flesh terribly. Some liniments have alcohol and other fiery
ingredients which only inflame the skin and tissue without striking
down to where the pain lies. Beware of such liniments. The great
humane, quick-action remedy is MEXICAN MUSTANG LINIMENT.
Made of oils, without a drop of alcohol or other torturing element, it
soaks straight to the bone and muscle. It soothes the wounded parts
and is comforting while the healing work is progressing. Mexican
Mustang Liniment is what you want because it
your work lighter, saves your livestock from suffering and keeps them
in good trim for work. For all forms of Lameness, Strains, Bruises,
Cuts, Burns, Galls and Harness Sores in animals, it is safe and
prompt and does not promise what it cannot perform. Muslang
Liniment has been doing its wonderful healing work for 65 years.
The amount of money it has saved livestock owners is incalculable.
One man writes that he was about to kill his valuable horse because
badly injured but Mustang Liniment made him well again. A Vet
erinary tells us he has used Mustang Liniment fifteen years and
found it best liniment for cuts, strains, etc. And many others are
enthusiastic friends of this tried and true remedy. Now you know
just what makes
Horses so Happy.
