History and use
This drenching pistol is part of the C.J. Pound Collection. Charles Joseph Pound (b.1866 – d.1946) was one of Australia’s earliest scientists to investigate veterinary and medical diseases in Queensland during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

This model was manufactured by Elliotts & Australian Drug Pty. Ltd in the 1950s. It was commonly used by Australian stock owners during this time to administer safe and precise dosing of a range of drenches to sheep.
