F h 26, w. A. HOVIS SYRINGE Filed Jan. 28, 1928 Patented Feb. 26, 1929.



.fiApplicacionfiled January 28, 1928. Serial No. 250,211.

= This invention relates to a syringedesigned primarily for use in the treatment of poultry diseases such as coldsand roup.

As is well known to those having a thorough knowledge of poultry most colds materialize into occular or sinus roup and if no eflicient treatment. is rendered the cases are generally fatal. 1

It is an object of the present invention to provide a syringe by the use of which a suitable treating fluid can be forced through the tear ducts and the sinus or nasal canals and thence through the nostrils thereby removing the exudate and relieving congestion.

A further object is to provide a syringe the nozzle portion of which isso shaped as to fit firmly against the roof of the mouth of the afiected fowl, there being means on the nozzle for directing the fluid positively into the slit present in the roof of the mouth.

Another object is to provide a syringe nozzle which will not interfere with breathing by the fowl, can be inserted readily into the mouth, and willafi'ord a correct support for the beak while treatment is being administered.

With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed may be made within the scope of what is claimed, without departing from the spirit of the invention.

In the accom anyi'ng drawings the preferred form of t e invention has been shown.

In said drawings,

Figure 1 is a side elevation of the syringe.

Figure 2 is a top plan view thereof.

Figure 3 is a section on line 3-3, Figure 2.

Figure 4 is a section on line 44, Figure 1.

Figure 5 is a top plan view of a modified form of nozzle.

Figure 6 is a top plan view of another form of nozzle.

Referring to the figures by characters of reference 1 designates a collapsible bulb preferably of rubber from which is extended a tubular stem 2 of any suitable stiff material such as metal, glass, hard rubber, etc. Formed on or secured to the end of the stem 2 is a mouth piece 3 the top surface of which is shaped to conformto the contour of the roof of a fowls month, this specially shaped surface being indicated at 4. That end of the mouth piece nearest the bulb 1 forms a-rest 5 fonthe beak of the fowl. Extending upwardly from this month piece near its other end isa node 6 which, as shown in Figures 1 to 4 inclusive, can be elliptical with rounded surfaces and so shaped as to enter the slit present in the roof of a fowls mouth. One end of the tubular stem 2 opens upwardly through this node as shown at 7, the sides of this outlet 7 being contracted so as to produce an outlet slit as shown at 8 extending longitudinally of the node but below the upper surfaces thereof.

It is to be understood that the construction of the mouth piece can be varied both as to materials and shape. For example, and as shown in Figure 5, an upstanding rib 9 can be provided along portions of the sides of the mouth piece and merge at the beak rest 10.

Such an arrangement has also been illustrated I in Figure 6 wherein the rib 11 is of a contour slightly different from that disclosed in F igure 5. Figure 5 also illustrates a circular outlet opening 12 within the node 13. In Figure 6 the node 14 is of angular configuration and the outlet opening 15 extends to the top thereof.

The mouth pieces can be made of glass, hard rubber, aluminum or other suitable'materials and obviously any efficient fluid forcing means can be utilized in lieu of the collapsible bulb.

In practice the affected fowl is held firmly while the mouth piece is inserted into the mouth and pressed upwardly against the roof thereof. The beak will rest onthe support provided therefor and the node will enter the slit in the roof of the mouth. The fluid fore-- ing means which or entirely filled pressed and a jet of the fluid will be forced through the node into the affected passages in the head, thereby clearing them of the accumulations and quickly relieving the inflamed. condition present.

What is claimed is 1. A syringe for use in the treatment of poultry, including a mouthpiece for insertion into the mouth of a fowl, means thereon for insertion into the slit in the roof of the fowls mouth, the sideand free end portions of the mouthpiece constituting a beak rest, and means for directing a treating fluid through the mouthpiece into that portion thereof seated in the slit.

2. A syringe for use in treating poultry, including a mouthpiece for insertion into the previously had been partly with a treating fluid, is comnouth of a fowl, said mouthpiece being shaped to conform to the contour of the roof of the mouth against Which it is pressed and to constitute a beak rest, a projecting portion on the mouthpiece for insertion into the slit in the roof of the fowls mouth, and means for forcing treating fluid through the mouthpiece and projecting portion.

3. A syringe for use in the treatment of poultry, including a tubular stem, means at one end thereof for forcing treating fluid through the stem, a mouthpiece at the other end of the stem insertable into the mouth of a fowl to be treated and shaped to conform to the contour of the roof of the mouth, the free end of the mouthpiece being reduced in thickness to avoid obstruction to breathing, there being a projecting node on the mouthpiece having an opening therethrough communicating With the stem, said node being insertahle into the slit in the roof of the foWls mouth.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto affixed my signature.
