This article is not written for the purpose of stating anything new concerning this subject, but for the purpose of recording our observations and more extensively circulating among the cattle owners of the state the knowledge that a majority of cases of “lumpy jaw” can be successfully treated by giving internally for some time the drug known as Potassium Iodide.
The very frequent occurrence of this disease in the west, coupled with the fact that many animals so affected are unfit for human food and are conseqently condemned when sent to market makes this question a very important one.
