Archive image from page 66 of Dadd's theory and practice of. Dadd's theory and practice of veterinary medicine and surgery daddstheorypract00dadd Year: 1867 DISEASES OF THE BRAIN AND NERVOUS SYSTEM. 59 A HORSE BENT ON MISCHIEF—THE SUBJECT OF PHBENITIS. those which produce disorder in the digestive function or organs. It is well known, however, that this, like some other diseases of the brain, is constantly occurring among members of the human family as well as the equine species, they being the subjects of constitutional defect in the form of scrofula. Derangement of the digestive organs almost always affect the brain, inconsequence of sympathetic relations existing between the two. Hence, in view of preventing disease of the brain, we must keep the stomach in good working order, by means of an intelligent system of dietetics, and the exhibition of sanative medicines when they seem to be needed. Symptoms.—The observable symptoms of abscess within the bran do not differ materially from those which are present in dropsy of the brain. In the early stage, the animal appears lethargic, sleepy, and, when urged to move, reels and comes near falling. The head is usually somewhat depressed, yet it is often inclined to one side: the pupil of the eye is dilated, and the membranes of the lids are congested and reddened. As the disease advances, a state of torpor sets in. Blindness, from pressure on the brain, ensues; the animal gets upon the floor, soon abrades the skin from the regions of the hips and shoulders, until, as a matter of charity, the owner puts an end to the sufferings of the patient.
