The American Thoroughbred, George C. Lightcap Jan 1940

The American Thoroughbred, George C. Lightcap

Iowa State University Veterinarian

In attempting to compile this brief dissertation on the history and development of the Thoroughbred horse in America, I found myself confronted with an immense task. The every detail in the development and improvement of our modern racer would be impossible to incorporate in an article as brief as this, and would require a knowledge and skill much beyond my humble capability. Therefore, I have attempted to enumerate but a few of the more pertinent steps concerning the development of the American Thoroughbred horse. I have cited several of the most outstanding men of the turf and sporting world of ...

Dental Fistulae In Canine, Hans A. Grell Jan 1940

Dental Fistulae In Canine, Hans A. Grell

Iowa State University Veterinarian

A dental fistula may be defined as an abnormal passage leading down to the cavity of an alveolar abscess. Two such cases were observed this summer in the practice of Dr. John Spranklin, of Baltimore, Md. One occurred in a male shepherd dog, six years old, while the other was seen in a four year old, male, wire-hair terrier. Both fistulae had their openings a little below the inner canthus of the left eye with a purulent discharge that had the characteristic odor of dental caries.


Equine Rabies, R. J. Beamer Jan 1940

Equine Rabies, R. J. Beamer

Iowa State University Veterinarian

Although rabies in our domesticated animals is not nearly as prevalent as it was a number of years ago, nevertheless during the summer months, cases seem to spring up around the country. All of our domesticated animals are susceptible, but the cases usually appear in cattle and dogs, and more rarely in horses. The spread of the disease is usually brought about by the bite of an infected animal.

Vitamins In Poultry Nutrition, H. L. Wilke Jan 1940

Vitamins In Poultry Nutrition, H. L. Wilke

Iowa State University Veterinarian

The field of knowledge on the subject of vitamins in poultry nutrition has become too broad to be covered adequately in one short paper. The practicing veterinarian is concerned chiefly with the symptoms of the various avitaminoses, differential diagnosis, methods of prevention and practical sources of the various vitamins to be used in either prevention or alleviation of the syndromes of each. In this paper, an attempt will be made to present some of this information in very brief form.


Elementary Discussion Of Roentgenology, Montgomery Houston Jan 1940

Elementary Discussion Of Roentgenology, Montgomery Houston

Iowa State University Veterinarian

Roentgenology today is gradually assuming its rightful rank within the veterinary profession. The vast majority of the X-ray equipment is in the hands of the small animal practitioner where its usage is almost invaluable, and is many times imperative. Practitioners with a large light horse clientele find it a helpful diagnostic agent. As yet, veterinarians in other fields have not found the X-ray practical. The future, however, holds promise of a cheap and convenient means to diagnostic and therapeutic treatment by use of radiogenic current. salts such as those now being produced by the cyclotron.


Department Of Veterinary Anatomy, Harlan E. Jensen Jan 1940

Department Of Veterinary Anatomy, Harlan E. Jensen

Iowa State University Veterinarian

The Department of Veterinary Anatomy, Iowa State College, gives to the student enrolled in the veterinary curriculum his first contact with subjects directly pertaining to Veterinary Medicine. This contact with a new curriculum which requires a new vocabulary is perhaps the major reason why the subjects may seem difficult to the men enrolled for the first time in Veterinary Medicine. When the medical vocabulary and the basic subject, anatomy, have been mastered, succeeding subjects usually seem easier.

Occupational Diseases Of Veterinarians, Abraham Barton Jan 1940

Occupational Diseases Of Veterinarians, Abraham Barton

Iowa State University Veterinarian

There are many diseases that the veterinarian may acquire due to the peculiar nature of his work. It is the purpose of this paper to catalogue these diseases in a concise though useful manner in order that they might be recognized, be given proper attention and that adequate prophylactic measures be determined. The discussion is based on a study by Professor Axel Thomsen of the State Veterinary Serum Laboratory at Copenhagen, the summary of which appeared in the Veterinary Journal (94:4, 1938, pp. 140-157). The study was made by sending a questionnaire to the veterinarians of Denmark, and the ...


Some Fallacies In The Interpretation Of Data Covering Vaccination Against Bang's Disease, R. R. Birch Jan 1940

Some Fallacies In The Interpretation Of Data Covering Vaccination Against Bang's Disease, R. R. Birch

Iowa State University Veterinarian

The new interest in calfhood vaccination against Bang's disease is bringing out some interpretations, both of field observations and experimental data, that require the closest scrutiny if we are to evaluate correctly the effectiveness of artificial immunization. Certain fallacies and half-truths have for years beset the publications dealing with all preventive measures used against the disease, and it may be helpful to point out a few of these as we approach the flood of reports on calfhood vaccination that is sure to appear in the near future.

Contracted Tendons In A Colt, Raymond Helvig

Iowa State University Veterinarian

A brown and white American Saddle colt, 10 days old, was brought to the Iowa State College Veterinary Clinic on May 28, 1940, with exaggerated contraction of the flexor tendons of both carpi. The legs were flexed at the carpal joints in such a way that when the colt was standing, the carpi were in an abnormal antero-lateral position.

The disease, "Salmon poisoning," in dogs and foxes was known before America was settled by white people. Dr. E. F. Perrot was one of the first to work with the disease and in 1925 concluded that salmon poisoning was due to an amoeba. At this time he recommended calomel as the curative agent.

A Fibroma In The Wall Of The Bladder, James Welch Jan 1940

A Fibroma In The Wall Of The Bladder, James Welch

Iowa State University Veterinarian

A seven year old female fox terrier with a history of unsuccessful attempts at urination was presented at the office of Dr. Herbert Lothe, Waukesha, Wis. The enlarged abdomen lead Dr. Lothe to believe the dog's bladder was distended with urine. An attempt to catheterize her was unsuccessful because of an obstruction at the anterior end of the urethra preventing the entrance of the catheter into the bladder. Permission was obtained from the owner to surgically remove the obstruction.


Necrotic Vulvitis Of Cattle, S. H. Mcnutt Jan 1940

Necrotic Vulvitis Of Cattle, S. H. Mcnutt

Iowa State University Veterinarian

For the past several years there has been an increased incidence of a disease that can best be described as a necrotic vulvitis of cattle. The increased incidence is perhaps partly due to an increase in numbers of female feeder calves and heifers in this region. The condition constitutes another reason why farmers and feeders pay more for steers. Some even refuse to feed heifers. Except for one steer, bulls and steers have not been found to show any lesions either about the anus or the external sex organs. Usually milk cows that are turned into the feed lots during ...


Supernumerary Digit, Leon W. Cook Jan 1940

Supernumerary Digit, Leon W. Cook

Iowa State University Veterinarian

Last December 12, a colt 7 months old was admitted to the Iowa State College Veterinary Clinic. The animal had an extra digit on the medial side of the left front foot. This caused very little trouble as far as walking was concerned, but was unsightly and probably would have interfered more as the colt grew older.


My Experience With Tularemia, Banner Bill Morgan Jan 1940

My Experience With Tularemia, Banner Bill Morgan

Iowa State University Veterinarian

On October 13, 1939 (Friday), I was doing routine autopsy work on cottontail rabbits at the Zoological Laboratory, University of Wisconsin. The rabbits were box trapped at the University Arboretum, brought in alive to the laboratory, and later killed for endocrine and parasitological studies. The handling of wild rabbits called for care, so all necessary precautions were taken; such as rubber gloves, disinfection, and careful disposal of the carcasses.
