• DISEASES OF THE HOG — Ten grains of nitrate of potash in a little milk (warm), three times each day will greatly assist in overcoming rheumatism in hogs. Hiccoughing in the pigs is caused by a derangement of the stomach. One of the best was to correct the trouble is to change the sow’s ration, feeding less corn and more of such feed as ground oats and bran. If the trouble does not cease, give each pig eight drops of tincture of asafetida twice a day until the hiccoughing does cease.
