CONCERNING "FAKE" HOG CHOLERA "CURES" Many So Called Remedies ot Absolutely No Value, PREVENTION ONLY BENEFIT By DR. C. C. LIPP, South Dakota State College. It is an old truism that a drowning man grasps at a straw. The hog own er becomes the drowning man just as soon as cholera makes its apperance in his neighborhood. The straw he grasps at in a most frantic manner is any so called cholera cure. The farmer is not entirely to blame. He is not fully aware that hog cholera is incurable and is so regarded by the highest veterinary authorities in all countries. Lacking this knowledge he still thinks that some untried drug or chemical or combination of them may stay his losses. When an adver tisement or an agent guaranteeing a cure for cholera gains the farmer's attention he frequently grasps what he considers his opportunity to save his hogs. This supposed cure is the straw at which the drowning man grasps. The nature of hog cholera, the va rious avenues for the exit and en trance of the infection into hogs, the appearance of diseased organs, the complications incident to cholera, are all well known facts, available to any earnest student. This does not mean any one can become familiar with all phases of hog cholera without years of study under competent instruction. In the pioneer days when the live stock interests could not afford the services of trained veterinarians it was necessary for all owners to treat their own ailing animals. The dis eases treated were as many and va ried as the medicines used, an'd when an animal recovered the recovery was always attributed to the remedy. Scientific research has demonstrated that many of the remedies had no the rapeutic value whatever and when recovery occurred it was in spite of the treatment and not the result of it. This is not to be construed as mean ing that all of the remedies used were valueless. Some of them were of the highest value and are in daily use now, but many of them were not in dicated in the treatment of the dis eases for which they were employed. The above situation with regard to hog cholera prevails today in many localities. Many farmers claim to have a cure for this disease. Many firms are flaunting the most useless preparations before the farmers whose hogs are dying of cholera, knowing that as a last resort the farmers will grasp at anything that offers relief. When it is remembered that all drugs offering the faintest hope for cure have been repeatedly tried in this and every other hog raising country and found useless it seems most absurd that any man or group of men, often without accurate and scientific knowledge of the dis ease processes of hog cholera, or of the action of the drugs used, should announce a cure for cholera. To say that cholera can be cured is like say ing that coal can be made into gold. Both may be possible at some future time neither is pcisslblq at present. ine veterinary department at state college, receives almost daily requests for information concerning so called cures for cholera. Often samples of these cures are sent for analysis or trial. To those unfamiliar with the situation it may seem strange that tests or analyses of these cures are not made. In the first place no funds are available for the purchase of hogs for tests of this kind. Money was ap propriated for the purchase of hogs for serum production and not for test ing fake cholera cures. In the sec ond place the entire time of all men employed in the veterinary depart ment is fully occupied with the work of serum production. In view of the above facts its seems like a most useless expenditure of money to invest in any so called cure for cholera. Not only is it a \fraste of money, but the disappointment to the farmer is of no small importance. Several disappointments like this naturally make him skeptical about the value of all cholera treatment and even raises a serious question in his mind concerning the value of hog cholera serum as a preventive. Dis appointment following the use of fake cures has made doubting Thomases of many farmers whenever hog chol era is mentioned. Much of this is due not to the inefficiency of serum but valueless remedies so often ad vised. CAUSES OF DISEASE. Contagious and Infectious Ailments Due to Qertain Germs. The causes of disease are almost as numerous as the diseases theni«-—-»es. It should be remembered, however, that each one of the so called con tagious and: infectious diseases is al ways caused by some particular germ. For instance, the disease kin \vn ai tuberculosis, or consumption, is al ways caused by the particular g«m of that disease, known as ii-s tubercle bacillus. The only disease that this germ causes directly is tuberculosis, and there is never tuberculosis unless the germ of that disease is present. This general principle applies to all other "catching" diseases. A lazv liver leads to chronic dyspep sia and constipation—weakens the whole system. Doan's Regulnto act Idly LET US HELP YOU!
