DEVICE FOR ADMINISTERING MEDICINE TO ANIMALS.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 430,928, dated June 24, 1890). Application tiled April 25, 1890. Serial No. 849,537. (No model.)
To @ZZ whom it may concern..-
Be it known that I, WILLIAM H. II. DOTY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Pat erson, in the county of Passaic and State of New Jersey, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Veterinary Devices for Administering Medicine, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to an improvement in instruments or devices for administering' medicine to animals; and the invention consists in the details of construction set forth in the following specification and claim, and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, which shows a sectional elevation of a syringe constructed'according to my invention.
In the drawing, the letter A indicates the discharge-pipe of the instrument. Abulb or compressible hollow ball B is shown secured to the pipe A. The mouth of the dischargepipe is provided with a reversible bag C, of rubber, cloth, or other suitable flexible material.
Vhen it is desired to administer' a pill to a horse or other animal, the bag C in the month of the discharge-pipe is pressed inward, as shown in full lines in the drawing, and the pill D is placed into the bag. The pipe A is then inserted into the throat of the animal a suitable distance, and on compressing the bulb B the bag C is forced out to the position indicated by dotted lines in the drawing and the pill D is ejected into the throat of the animal. The pipe A is of course long` enough to extend a suitable distance into the throat of the animal. In place of the bulb B a piston working in a cylinder can be made to similarly operate the bag U.
What I claim as new, and desire to secure by `Letters Patent, is
Amedicine-administering device having its mouth or discharge-opening provided with a reversible bag, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
