Ayurveda (science of life)
Swelling (in Sanskrit: śotharoga) or Oedema refers to a type of disorder, according to sections on Horses (Gajāyurveda or Aśvāyurveda) in the Garuḍapurāṇa.—[Management of miscellaneous disorders]—The drugs along with decoction of triphalā are advised if the horse is affected by vraṇa (ulcers)/kuṣṭha/khañja (lameness). The medicines should be administered with gomūtra (cow’s-urine) in mandāgni (impaired digestion), śotharoga (swelling/oedema). If they are affected by vātapitta, vraṇa (ulcers) the ghṛtasaṃyukta-gokṣīra (cow's milk along with ghee) is advised. If the horse is kṛṣa (emaciated), the diet shall be supplemented by māṃsa (meat) for puṣṭyārtha (to improve the body).
