The Household Cyclopedia

Or, "how to kill yourself, your pets and your friends, using heavy metals and other dubious remedies". Watch out for horses with farcy, glanders, spavins, wind-galls, cribbiting, and other disorders. Dog got mange? Mercurial ointment. Distemper? Try opium. I find it odd that females have their own class of diseases, yet males do not. Don't try this at home, kids.
