This is an advertisement for Day, Son and Hewitt’s medicine for animals, specifically farm animals such as horses, cattle, calves, sheep and lambs. Up until the late 18th century the farrier was the major figure in animal medicine. Farriers had knowledge of equine diseases, remedies and treatments. In 1791 the Veterinary College was set up in response to the demand for a better understanding of animal diseases. As knowledge and expertise grew animals were given better care and a range of medicines and treatments were developed. Day, Son and Hewitt are still making animal medicines today.
