FIRING. The application of the firing iron, red-hot, to some preternatural swelling, &c. in order to discuss it. This is oftentimes done by clapping the iron to the skin without piercing it. The firing instrument or knife ought to be somewhat rounded on the edge, and gradually thicker to the back, sufficient to keep the heat of the fire for some time. It should be rubbed clean that no dirt oręshes may stick to it, and not used until the flaming redness is in part gone off. See VeteRinary Art.
