AMBURY, or Anrury. A soft and spongy tumour, wart, or swelling, full of blood, growing upon any part of a horse's body. When high and prominent, tie a horse-hair very tight about its root; when the tumour falls off, which will happen in about eight days, touch the part with lunar caustic, which will destroy the roots and prevent a return. Sometimes, however, the anbury is flat and low, with a broad base; in this case it is impossible to take it off by ligature; recourse must therefore be had to the knife, or fire. In sinewy parts, the application of oil of vitriol, or white sublimate, is recommended to eat it away.
