[ocr errors]

A SIMPLE fever is an accele

of , attended with other symptoms of a fever, while all the internal parts continue found, and there is no inflammation or inflammatory tumour that may occasion it.

This is the mildest and least dangers of all fevers, and is generally owing to a suppressed per. spiration which increases the quantity of humours, and thereby requires an increased effort of nature to throw them off, and to remove the obstructions; whence a feverish habit will follow, which, if taken in time, by aslifting the endeavours of nature, it may go off without any bad consequences. There is nothing so likely to cause this fever as a sudden refrigeration of the body after it has been violently heated. The matter that should be carried off by perspiration is a recrement, and therefore, when retained in the vessels, it cannot be friendly to the blood, but raise commotions therein, and that more or less as the horse is otherwise in health.

The symptoms of a simple fe. ver, are a loss of appetite, in such a manner, that the horse only nibbles his hay as if he did not like it, and he is so restless as to be continually ranging from one. end of the rack to the other : he has a bearing of his flanks, a redness of his eyes, and dryness of his tongue, which is somewhat parched ; and his ears and feet are not cold, as in complicated fevers, but are almost as warm as the rest of his body: he is not coftive, but his dung by internal


heat is dried into small balls, and is seldom or never greasy: his urine is of a high colour, and is sometimes voided with difficulty: he seems to be fond of water, yet drinks but little at a time, and often.

In the cure of this fever, which arises from too great a quantity and too rapid a motion of the blood, bleeding is certainly the first intention ; and the longer it is neglected, the more viscid and acrimonious is the blood rendered, by dissipating its 'more thin part, condensing the globules, and heating the serum to such a degree as to turn it into a kind of jelly. The acrimony of the oleous and saline parts of the blood will be increased more and more, insomuch, that the blood will be at length highly contaminated, and so far de. praved as to be unfit for the vital purposes.

The quantity of blood to be taken away must be in proportion to the strength of the horse, the intenseness of the fever, the heat and the violence of the symptoms. Generally three pints or two quarts may be sufficient ; and if the symptoms are not abated by the first bleeding, it shews a necessity of re. peating the operation, especially if he refuses to feed However, it is fafer to take away too little than too much.

When the horse is disposed to drink, it will be always proper to let him have a sufficient quantity to keep his blood well dilu. ted; otherwise, as the preternatural heat dissipates the thinner part, without a sufficient quantity of fluid, the serum of the blood will be concreted into jelly. This should be made with warm milk and water mixed with a little oatmeal. He may like. wile have the following drink of drench.
