    Abstract : A review of the literature and a report of tests made of carbon tetrachloride and mixtures of carbon tetrachloride and carbon bisulphide are given.
    The results indicate that carbon bisulphide in a dose of 6 dr, to a horse that has fasted properly is a reliable treatment for the removal ofbots. Oil of chenopodium is not of value for this purpose. Carbon tetrachloride is apparently more effective, relatively, against Gastrophilus nasalis than against G. intestinalis, but its efficacy against bots is less than that of carbon bisulphide. Carbon tetrachloride was ineffective in removing Habronema from one horse, and as this drug is less toxic than carbon bisulphide it is probable that the latter should be used in the case of these worms. The combination of carbon bisulphide and carbon tetrachloride does not appear to be particularly valuable.
