The original text was inconsistent in the use of accents and hyphenation. These variants
and a small number of typographical errors were maintained in this transcription. A
complete list of the variant spellings is found at the end of the book along with the list
of typographical errors.

The Table of Contents lists the Authorities Cited section as preceding the Index but it was printed following the Index. This order has been maintained in this transcription and the links from the Table of Contents go to the appropriate section rather than the page number.

PREFACE

All that can be known on the subject of lameness, is founded on a knowledge of anatomy and of the
physiology of locomotion. Without such knowledge, no one can master the principles of the diagnosis of
lameness. However, it must be assumed that the readers are informed on these subjects, as it is impossible to
include this fundamental instruction in a work so brief as this one.

The technic of certain operative or corrective procedures, has been described at length only where such
methods are not generally employed. Where there is no departure from the usual methods, treatment that is
essentially within the domain of surgery or practice is not given in specific detail.

Realizing the need for a treatise in the English language dealing with diagnosis and treatment of lameness, the
author undertook the preparation of this manuscript. That the difficulties of depicting by means of
word-pictures, the symptoms evinced in baffling cases of lameness, presented themselves in due course of
writing, it is needless to say.

It is hoped that this volume will serve its readers to the end that the handling of cases of lameness will become
a more satisfactory and successful part of their work; that both the practitioner and his clients may profit
thereby; and last but by no means least, that the horse, which has given such incalculable service to mankind
and is deserving of a more concrete reward, will be benefited by the application of the principles herein
outlined.

In addition to the consultation of standard works bearing on various phases of the subject of lameness, the
author wishes to thankfully acknowledge helpful advice and assistance received from the publisher, Dr. D.M.
Campbell; to appreciatively credit Drs. L.A. Merillat, A. Trickett and F.F. Brown for valuable suggestions
given from time to time. Particular acknowledgment is made to Dr. Septimus Sisson, author, and W.B.
Saunders & Co., publishers of The Anatomy of Domestic Animals, for permission to use a number of
illustrations from that work.
