For some reason, which is not explained, there has been a great prevalence of strychnin poisoning among the dogs of this town. In those that were worth saving, where my services were requested I gave a hypodermic of apomorphin to remove any remaining poison from the stomach. I then gave hypodermic injections of a saturated solution of magnesium sulphate to relieve the spasms. The promptness with which the remedy overcame spasm and antidoted the serious effects of the poison, greatly surprised me and caused me to believe that the suggestion would be an excellent one for doctors in every-day practice.
