    • An advert from 1888, states that it:
      ‘Cures at once, Colic or Gripes in Horses
      Cures Debility in Colts or Heifers
      Cures Horses off Appetite and Sickly
      Cures Diarrhoea, Scour, Blown Cattle, etc’
      Day, Sons and Hewitt’s, with an address in Dorset Street, London, claimed to be the largest horse and cattle medicine manufacturers in the world. They also sold products called ‘Red Condition Powders’, for coughs, colds, itching, swelling etc, and ‘Chemical Extract’, for swelling, cuts, strains and injuries.
