Abstract: Livestock comprises a major part of Indian agriculture economics. Livestock owners in far- flung remote areas still depend upon plants and animal products for curing various veterinary ailments. This folk knowledge of ethnoveterinary significance has been identified by tribal and rural people through a process of experience over hundreds of years. The present paper deals with the plant as well as animal based crude drugs used in veterinary practices in tribal area of Rajasthan in India. Ethnoveterinary surveys of the study area yielded veterinary uses of 59 plants species belonging to 55 genera of Angiosperms. Twelve animal based ethnoveterinary medicines are also reported. The identified taxa are described by mentioning their scientific name, families, vernacular names, ethnoveterinary medicinal uses along with their mode of administration.
