Excerpt from The Army Horse in Accident and Disease: A Manual Prepared for the Use
This manual, as originally compiled by Alexander Plummer, D. V. S., veterinarian, Fourth Cavalry, and Richard H. Power, V. S., veterinarian, Artillery Corps, was published in 1903. In this edition the work has been revised by the compilers, assisted by Charles H. Jewell, D. V. M., veterinarian. Thirteenth Cavalry, and Capt. Geo. H. Cameron, Fourth Cavalry, secretary.
Matter from the companion text-book, "The Army Horseshoer," has been substituted in several places for that of the original.
An original chapter on Tropical Diseases, by Veterinarian Jewell, and many illustrations from photographs and drawings, have been added.
Captain Cameron, in addition to his work on the revision of the text, made the original drawings and prepared the others for reproduction. His valuable assistance is here acknowledged.
The majority of the photographic work was done by First Lieut. S. B. Pearson, Ninth Cavalry.
The arrangement of the text has been adapted to the course of practical instruction, and the language, as far as possible, to study by men who, as a rule, have had limited educational advantages.
