Hi Mike,

A good place to start would be "Pontil Medicine Encyclopedia" by Digger Odell. It has descriptions, advertisments and photos of some of the bottles listed. A quick glance through the index shows 13 bottles with "horse liniment" and 7 entrys with "man or beast". I didn't see anything with the words cattle or cows or veterinary in the index. Any other key words you can think of? If you'd like, I can scan in the relevent pages and send them to you. there a few other books I have that I can look into, "Great American Pontiled Medicines" by Neilson, and the "Pontiled Medicine Price Guide" by Jim Holst.

I don't know of any pontiled cure bottles that are specifically veterinary medicines. There is a DOCTOR FRANKS// TURKEY FEBRIFUGE/ FOR THE CURE OF // FEVER AND AGUE, which is probably not for turkey fever, but it is a cool name and the only the only pontiled cure that I know of that has the name of an animal. Here's what it looks like.

The only two I have I got from you so that is not much help. Matt's (Antiquemeds) bottle nexis is a good place to look. www.antiquemedicines.com
You mentioned trying to visit a fellow that had a collection of pontiled vet meds....did that ever happen?

Is the Farrel's Arabian Liniment a vet bottle?


Jimbo, your Collier's remedy has a great color and from Charleston, pretty near to where I grew up. The Frank's is one of my favorite cures!
