Abstract

On August 1, 1943, a five-year-old American Saddle Horse was presented at the Stange Memorial Clinic. The history on the case was that the patient had been kicked two weeks previously. Upon examination, a slight wound was found just below the knee on the right front leg. An X-ray examination indicated a defect in the bone in the area of the injury. A mercury bichloride (1: 1000) pack was bandaged over the wound and left in place for three days. At this time the mercury bichloride pack was replaced by a BIPP (bismuth subnitrate 1, iodoform 2, and liquid petroleum 18) pack.
