Then there are the ascarides, small dark or red worms, these sometimes exist in immense quantities, and hundreds are often voided at a time.
REMEDIES: Cina, Digitalis, Stramonium Sulphur and Arsenicum.
Cina, symptoms similar to those indicating its use in Lumbrici.
Dose. The same as above stated.
Digitalis, may be given if the animal wastes away, and there is diarrhoea.
Dose. Six drops twice a day.
Stramonium, is useful if the horse rubs himself behind.
Dose. The same as of Digitalis.
There are several other varieties of worms; but the symptoms are too complicated to be treated from any directions that can be given; but generally Cina and Sulphur will be found beneficial. I have also seen great improvement from a dose or two of Arsenicum.
