James L. Hevia

University of Chicago Press

In the 1880s, a small group of veterinary surgeons addressed the inadequacies they saw in Indian Army transport, including their own absence of authority, by starting a professional journal. For several years the Quarterly Journal of Veterinary Science and Army Animal Management addressed a number of pressing issues and what they saw as indifference on the part of army and government leadership. Articles dealt with animal hygiene and diet, diseases, and care. And on the premise that the primary problem with the camel was British ignorance, the journal published a number of pieces on the animal's physiology, and proper care and management.
