VETERINARY INQUIRIES.
Editor Dcscrct Farmer: Will you,
through your valuable paper, kindly
answer the following questions:
What will prevent a sow from eat
ing her pigs at the time of foirth?
There is a disease amongst little
I igs about two weeks old, their hair
starts to get rough and they breathe
very hard; their sides pump out and
in very fast for a few days and then
they die.
When a cow is hard to milk what
can be done to make her easier.
FRANK HIXSON, Wanship.
DEPRAVED APPETITE.
By Dr Frederick, A. C. U.
This disease generally occurs as a
symptom of some other disease but
may occur as a result of feeding
faulty ration, one that is deficient in
earthly salts. Lack of exercise and
digestive disorders may also produce
(his condition.
The treatment consists in adding to
the ration whatever elements it is
deficient in. The feeding of charcoal,
salt, wood-ashes, etc., may supply
the elements needed and relieve the
condition.
When a sow fonns the habit of
eating her pigs she should not be
used for breeding purposes as it is
very difficult to overcome this ab
normal appetite.
Thumps in Young Pigs.
This is a condition that is very
common in young pigs. It is due to
an irritated condition of the nerves
going to the diaphram, the partition
between the lungs and the intestines.
Digestive disorders, especially the
over-loading of the stomach, and lack
of exercise are the main causes. It
often happens that a large number
cf pigs in the same litter and same
pen arc attacked with this condition
when too closely confined. The most
prominent symptom is the sudden
jerking movement of the flanks. This
is noticeable when the pig is standing
quiet and may occur cither regularly
or irregularly and are most frequent
when the stomach is full.
The preventative treatment of
thumps in young pigs is good care
pnd plenty of crcrcisc. Exercise
alone will very often effect a cure. A
'When this disease appears in a litter
of pigs they should be turned on pas
turc and given plenty of opportunity
to run about. However, if this can
not be done, they should be exer
cised in some other way as pfocincc
them in another pen .or away from
the mother.
The spasms can often be relieved "
l:y tincture of opium, from three to
fifteen drop doses, three times a day,
depending on the size of the animal.
Small doses of castor oil should also
be given to prevent constipation.
The old sow should not be allowed
to get too fat before farrowing time.
By observing the above precautions
it is highly probable that thumps
can be prevented and overcome.
When a cow is hard to milk we
often find that the milk duct in the 1
end of the teat is very poorly devel- m
oped, thus allowing only a very m
small stream to pass. Where this
is the case the opening can be with
; teat expander or a milk tube, care
should be taken that the instrument j
used for this purpose is well steri- 1
lized and that the end of the teat is
also cleaned. One of these teat dila-
tors can be passed up and then an I
expansion produced by forcing the I
plunger into the dilator. This should I
not all be done at once hut should '
be done gradually, day by day, until
the opening is of sufficient size to
Jet a full flow pass.

Editor Dcscrct Farmer: I have a i
cow which is a very heavy milker,
ntid she is bothered -considerable b
her udder becoming swollen and fev
erish and at times almost stops the i
flow of milk and when she is afflict- i
cd thus, she gives stringy, cheesy
looking stuff. Will you kindly in-
form me what you think is the cause I
and what to do for her; also inform It
me what you think is wrong with
her? I
