REVIEW OF 1851 LONDON EDITION in The Homeopathic Record Vol. II, 1851: 'Mr. Rush is a veterinary surgeon in extensive practice in Suffolk; and has had ample opportunities of trying the merits of both systems; this he hat done, and the result is, be so far believes in homoeopathy as to practice that exclusively. We have carefully read the practical part of the work, and, as far as our know- ledge extends, we believe Mr. Bush has prescribed homceopathicallj for the different diseases mentioned; and, if homoeopathically, consequently, curati?ely. At the end of the work there is an appendix containing a number of cases of various kinds, which have been cured on these principles, which, we think, cannot fail to interest and instruct all who read them; we have therefore made an extract of three of them, which are fair specimens of the whole. In conclusion, we recommend ell owners of horses or cattle to purchase it; for we are sure that if they practise according to its teachings, they will be abundantly satisfied; not only will there be a great saving in their stock, but also in the penw of the medicine, in the amount of labour, and unpleasantness of administering the old-sjatem phjsic. We hare been informed tbat above 500 copies of this work were sold the first veek of its publication; this speaks Tolumes for its utility and the necessity of such a work.'
