The practical farrier; or, A treatise on all the diseases incident to that noble animal, the horse; the symptoms by which they are severally known, and most certain methods of cure. Including also, those inveterate disorders, hitherto pronounced incurable; viz. mad and sleepy staggers, lock-jaw, and the glanders. Which last mentioned distemper, by the practice and experience of upwards of fifty years, and at the expence of many thousand pounds, is now proved, by hundreds of desperate cases, to be as easily cured as any other complaint the horse is liable to. Dedicated by permission, to His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales, By Edward Snape, Professor of Physic, and Anatomy on Horses.
