Etymology[edit]

From Old French vives, French avives (compare Spanish abivas), from Arabicذِئْبَة(ḏiʔba, literally she-wolf).

Noun[edit]

vives (uncountable)

  1. (obsolete) A disease of animals, especially horses, based in the glands under the ear, where a tumour is formed which sometimes ends in suppuration.
    • 1816, Richard Lawrence, The complete farrier, and British sportsman, page 245:
      The Vives, like the strangles, is most incident to young horses, and usually proceeds from the same causes, such as catching cold, being over-heated, or over-worked, about the time of shedding their teeth.
