Śleṣmaja (श्लेष्मज) refers to “diseases due to the morbid condition of the phlegm” (of Hawks), according to the Śyainika-śāstra: a Sanskrit treatise dealing with the divisions and benefits of Hunting and Hawking, written by Rājā Rudradeva (or Candradeva) in possibly the 13th century.—Accordingly, [while discussing the treatment of hawks]: “[...] Four diseases relate to the irregularity of breath. [...] If the disease is the effect of the morbid condition of the phlegm (śleṣmaja), powdered pepper is to be first administered as a snuff, and then meat mixed with the powdered bark of Morunga quilandina, is to be given. The drink should be warm water; musk may also be given to cure its symptoms. [...]”.
