Abstract

On Feb. 27, 1953, a five-year-old gelding was admitted to the Stange Memorial Clinic with a gunshot wound in the left foreleg. Questioning of the owner revealed that the animal had been shot accidentally with a 22-caliber rifle while the owner was attempting to destroy a stray dog. The patient had been lying in a stall when he was shot. It was also reported that the animal had been shot on February 26, and that on the same day a local veterinarian had attempted to remove the bullet but had failed. The local veterinarian then gave the patient penicillin and sent it to the clinic.
