Abstract

We will be comparing the work from Vegetius, Digestorum artis mulomedicinae (4th c. CE) to The Successful Stockman and Manual of Husbandry by Andrew Gardenier (1899 CE). The focus will be on the comparison of known symptoms related to, and treatment of, the disease Strangles, or Distemper. Distemper is an infectious disease that is frequently seen in young animals causing a fever, mucus formation in the airways, and can develop into deep abscesses throughout the body, which could prove to be fatal. The poster will give the original Latin from Vegetius’ work along with a translation in English of the work, and then provide a comparison with more recent treatments for this disease from Gardenier, as well as present-day updates.
