Anshutz gives a useful therapeutic differential diagnosis of the condition Foot and Mouth Disease, with the most useful homeopathic remedies. Therapeutic byways by E.P. Anshutz, published in 1900….

Symphytum or Comphrey.-The first is the name used by Dioscorides for this plant so famous for aiding the healing of broken bones by applying the mashed up green plant or the tincture to the affected part, also taking a little of the latter internally. Fernie, in his Herbal Simples says that when cultivated it grows luxuriously and is both preventive and curative in foot and mouth disease in cattle. He does not state, however, how it is given, but, presumably, the tincture in the water the cattle drink, or put into the mouth by most convenient means, 20 or 30 drops.
