34.20 Pneumonia

Contagious Pleuro Pneumonia of the Horse. For all practical purposes it may as well still be looked upon as a pneumonia occurring in the course of an attack of influenza; and treated under the rules given for lobular pneumonia. It is true, however, that greater care should be used to prevent its spread to other horses, not only those that are well, but those already sick with an ordinary influenza, by quickly and strictly separating such an animal from among others; and furthermore it will not be well for a man to shut himself up too closely with a case of this kind, or to remain, for hours together, "sitting up" with him at night in a small stable. This caution is given in view of happenings within personal knowledge of the writer. There is no danger whatever excepting under the above named circumstances.
