Of The Diseases Of Hogs






The only disease that I know of which seems to be peculiar to hogs, is a
kind of leprosy, commonly called measles, when it seizes them, they
become dull and sleepy, if the tongue is pulled out, the palate and
throat will be found full of blackish spots, which appear also on the
head, neck, and on the whole body--the creature is scarce able to stand,
and the roots of its bristles are bloody. As this disorder proceeds
chiefly from their gluttony and filth, and hot drinking of potale and
slop; to remedy which, it would be commendable to feed on cold potale,
or scarcely milk warm, to keep them clean, to mix salt occasionally with
the potale--tar their trough once a month, and give them a little ground
antimony.

In fattening hogs I have known them improve rapidly, after eating the
warm ashes from a fresh burned brush heap. Hickory or willow ashes will
have an effect to destroy worms, and I think ought to be used, they will
eat it dry, when put in their troughs.
