Title"Circulatory System including Lymphatics"
Extent1 folder
DescriptionThese papers were collected together by Smith under the title 'Circulatory system including lymphatics' and relate to cases of horse illness and injury treated by Smith and other army veterinarians. The case notes cover work carried out for the 5th and 12th Royal Lancers at Secunderabad [Sikandar-a-bad] in India from 1880-1881 and at Aldershot from 1891-1895. There are also some post-mortem examination reports. Most of the case notes are by one person, presumed to be Smith himself, but there are some notes in other handwriting.

Injuries and illnesses treated include: internal haemorrhage, heart disease, embolism, valvular disease, ruptured blood vessel, lymphangitis, oedema, epilepsy.

At the front of the folder there is a manuscript list of circulatory-related cases recorded elsewhere in post-mortem examination note books. There are also printed versions of case notes by Smith, from a veterinary journal dated c.1896. Also enclosed in the folder is a painting of a blood vessel.
