At www.verterinarycollectibles.com: The Homeopathic Specifics for animals had a range of 15% to as high as 52% alcohol in the bottle! Depending on which bottle was bought, the medicines treated a range of livestock issues: Distemper, colic, strangle, convulsions. lung congestion, belly ache, wind blown and fever in livestock.
I imagine there were plenty of drunk livestock meandering about back in those days.
These bottles are most likely 1856 to 1900.
