DescriptionThese papers relate to cases of horse illness and injury treated by Smith and other army veterinarians. The case notes cover work carried out for the 12th Royal Lancers at Secunderabad [Sikandar-a-bad] and Bangalore [Bengaluru] in India from 1881-1884 and for the Army Service Corps at Aldershot from 1887-1893. There are also some surgical and 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: peritonitis, calculus, intestinal obstruction, enteritis, colic, ruptured stomach, gastritis, dysentery, rectal prolapse, constipation, poisoning, twisted bowel, congestion of liver.

The folder also includes anatomical sketches, and printed articles from 'The Veterinary Record' dated 1889-1895. At the back of the folder there is a manuscript list of liver related cases recorded elsewhere in post-mortem examination note books.
