NEPHRITIS. This disorder may arise from peritonitis (inflammation of the bowels), excessive over-exercise, or from drawing weighty loads beyond the animal's physical strength, whereby the loins become seriously affected. The horse, in such cases, should be bled copiously, until the inflammatory appearances subside. A warm embrocation should be applied to the diseased parts, composed of oil of turpentine, hartshorn, and olive oil. The best embrocation, however, is the following:—oil of turpentine one ounce, liquor of ammonia two ounces, olive oil four ounces, spirits of camphor one ounce.
