(3 1/2 x 6 In Folded) (18 x 13 In Unfolded) This is an original antique Parke, Davis & Company pamphlet from the 1900s. "BLACKLEGOIDS for the Prevention of Blackleg in Cattle - Combine Activity with Accuracy and Ease of Administration. Can be obtained from any druggist. Department of Animal Industry."
"Blackleg is a most virulent, rapidly fatal, infectious disease of young cattle. All Young cattle that have begun to forage for themselves are most susceptible until they are two years of age. Cattle over two years of age may become affected, but such cases are infrequent. Sheep, goats and hogs may also contract the disease, but horses, dogs, fowls and man are immune. The name of the disease describes it fairly well if we take all the symptoms and effects into consideration. Blackleg is a disease peculiar to young cattle, and should not be confounded with Anthrax, which is almost universal and attacks human beings, animals and fowls."
The pamphlet is in FAIR condition, heavy general wear, stains and creases.
