Information on these veterinary practices was gathered from June 2009 to April 2010 by interviewing residents using the “Transect walks” method of the Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) technique. The method was based on semi-structured interviews and discussions with key research participants. A total of fifty-seven medicinal formulas were recorded for use in the treatment of different livestock diseases. These formulations are not reported in earlier published literature.</span>
