In view of the fact that the con
tagious disease of tho eye of cattle
exists to some extent in this county,
weclip tho following letter from the
Nashville American for the benefit
of those who have diseased cattle1
Iu the past few iiay.-i nunu roun cut-
'rtaka of n oontn.;ccr.ailincas,e ef theevo
f cattle liavo been roportod to me. It
s cull'jd' by thoho wLo lmvo tlms fur re
ported it ''piiik eyn." This lias not only
been reported by .several dairymen of
ashville nad vicinity, but from tho coun
tieii of Rutherford, Minny, AVilliiuusou,
"ranklin, CofTi'e, Marshall and Bedford.
So far as I have been able to determine,
tho terra "piuk eye" is orrwncoubly iificd
iu reporting this disease. "Piuk ere,"
as it iej cominonlv applied, refers to an
euty-ely dilTereat affection, known as in
fluenza. From the pyniptoms described
in each and every letter which has come
iut,o my hands, 1 feel safe in saying that
it is tho sanio discaso which I liavo lata-
ly come iu contact with daily in tho stock
yards of this city. Tho affection refer
itu is cpii.oouo coujuucnvnis. it is
an infectious disease of cattle and which
causes hiflamatiou of the conjunctiva
(mucous nombrane of the eye). This
iuflaniatiou soon extends to tho cornea
and internal structures of tho ovcball.
Some few cases recover bofore the evo
ball becomes involved, but tho majority
arc nioro Rovcrely a&octed, aud it goes
on to Buppnration and udhesions of tho
cornea, to tho crystalline leuse, ulcera
tion, etc., causing partial or complete
blindness, which may iu some cases be
only temporary, while in ethers it is per
manent. This disease is widespread and
very contagious; when it attacks a herd
it usually affects all the cows.
The only treatment which seems to bt
of any avail is sedatives, viz : Tr. opium
1 part; water, 2 parts, applied to eyes
three times u day, or.Fl. ex. belladonna
1 dr.; zinc sulphate, 10 grains; water, 1
oz. ; apply three times a day until all in
flammation subsides. . Keep cuttle affect
ed in dark etulls. There has been very
little written or recorded in the profes
sional works on veterinary science as to
the pathology and treatmont of this dis
ease, and it is from facts which I have
recently observed iu the stock yards that
I write tho above, for the benefit of thoso
who have been so anxious as to make in
quiry through mo for information con
cerning the dinea.se which is playing such
havoc with their cattle.
