A member of the Bathini Goud family administers 'fish medicine' to a pet dog named Savitri at the Nampally Exhibition Grounds in Hyderabad on June 9, 2013. The medicine, which has been offered by the family of the southern Indian city to patients for the last 162 years as a cure for asthma and other breathing disorders, is placed in the mouth of a live murrel fish and then slipped into the mouth of the patient. The medicine is administered on the auspicious day of 'Mrigasira Karti' which falls in June with the onset of the annual monsoon. The treatment, which is based on a secret herb formula, draws thousands of people from all over the country. AFP PHOTO / Noah SEELAM (Photo credit should read NOAH SEELAM/AFP/Getty Images)
