The author has gathered a vast store of information on veterinary therapeutics, particularly that which pertains to the treatment of dogs and cats. This has been segregated from general discussions in current articles, has been condensed to concise form and is presented as an alphabetic, encyclopedic treatise on the alleviation of the ills of dogs and cats. The diagnosis is not a part of the text, having been discussed in a preceding volume.
Part I of the book (consisting of 146 pages) presents a systematic discussion of the several types of therapy—actinotherapy, radiant heat therapy, electrotherapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, vaccine and serum immunization and therapy, nonspecific vaccine therapy, vitamin therapy, the barbiturates, the antiseptics (wound, intestinal and urinary) and the anesthetics (local and general).
Part II (consisting of 479 pages) provides the body of the book, with an alphabetic, encyclopedic discussion of conditions varying from abdominal pain to yawning.
