General [General] Sheep are occasionally attacked with this affection during the winter season, especially when folded upon open bleak situations, during the prevalence of north-easterly winds. The symptoms are much the same as those exhibited by other animals; loss of
appetite, generally fever, dull heavy appearance, discharge from the eyes and nose; these symptoms are generally accompanied with a cough, and sometimes accelerated breathing.
REMEDIES: Aconite, Nux vomica, Arsenicum and Mercurius vivus. Aconite [Acon] Aconite may be given at the commencement when there are general febrile symptoms.
Dose. Three or four drops three times a day. Nux vomica [Nux-v] Nux vomica follows Aconite, with benefit, especially if there is frequent sneezing and cough.
Dose. Three drops night and morning. Arsenicum [Ars] Arsenicum may be given when there is profuse discharge from the nose, nostrils excoriated, thirst.
Dose. The same as of Nux vomica. Mercurius vivus [Merc-v]
Mercurius vivus may be given for profuse discharge, nostrils swollen, excoriated, frequent attacks of shivering.
Dose. The same as directed for Aconite.
