Strain In Tue Loins. The symptoms of this strain are either a partial stiffness of the back, and an involuntary yielding of the horse to any weight placed upon him, or, in very bad cases, general lameness ensues. The animal should, as soon as possible after the accident, be freely bled, which, together with rest, may be sufficient in slight injuries ; but, if otherwise, in addition to bleeding, even to faintness, the following embrocation should be applied to the loins, viz.:—Liquid ammonia, two ounces; oil of turpentine, one ounce; olive oil, three ounces. A fresh sheepskin, with the fleshy side in, should be laid across the strained parts.
