Strain Of The Knee-joint. There is a correspondence between the knee-joint of the horse and the human wrist, and the stifle-joint with the human knee. When the kneejoint is strained it is mostly accompanied by that common accident called broken knees, and is in consequence distinguished with difficulty. Bleeding and rest must, however, be employed here, as should the case turn out to be simply a broken knee, bleeding will be found extremely serviceable.
