Milk Fever: Its Simple and Successful Treatment

Description: "Milk fever is a very common, and until recently a frequently fatal, disease affecting cows in all the large dairy districts of this and other countries. As it usually attacks the best milking members of the herd and at a time when the milk flow is the heaviest, the malady is one which has caused very severe losses to our dairy industry. It is therefore of the greatest economic importance that every milk producer acquaint himself with the present extremely successful methods of treating this disease, especially the injection of filtered atmospheric air into the udder. This form of treatment has been adopted within a comparatively recent time, and, in view of the uniform success that has followed, every dairyman should become familiar with its use and should provide himself with a suitable apparatus for it application, especially if he is located where the services of a competent veterinarian can not be secured. This method of dealing with the disease does not make the assistance of the veterinarian undesirable, in case it is obtainable, as the professional man may frequently be of the greatest assistance in treating complicated symptoms, should they arise." -- p. 3
