Excerpt from Principles of Veterinary Science a Text-Book for Use in Agricultural Schools

If veterinary science is to attain its justly deserved place in the agricultural college curriculum, it must be so presented as to bring out the close relationship that should exist between it and the natural and physical sciences now taught.

In this book are incorporated the writer's ideas of the manner in which this object may be accomplished. The text differs from those on veterinary science at present available to agricultural students in that it places greater emphasis upon the important subjects of anatomy and physiology.

No attempt has been made to treat in great detail the various subjects considered, the scope and purpose of the book being to present the more important facts rather than those of highly technical character. The aim has been to select from the immense amount of material available that most suitable for agricultural students.

In Part I the structure and functions of the animal body have been described in such a way that the student may readily use the information in judging animal form, capacity, and productivity, as well as in the problems connected with the feeding and breeding of animals. In Part II the student is shown how to recognize sickness in animals, render first aid treatment, and prevent diseases.

The reason for presenting basic facts relative to the chemistry of the body in the first chapter is that experience shows that students do not appreciate the principles of veterinary science unless they have some knowledge of chemistry. Those who have had only an introductory course in chemistry, or are taking the subject at the same time they are studying veterinary science, should have no difficulty in grasping the facts that it has seemed desirable to include.

This edition is a development of the author's former publication entitled, "The Horse in Health and Disease."
