Abstract: The people of far-flung rural areas still depend to a large extent upon plants and household remedies for curing veterinary ailments. The folk knowledge of ethno-veterinary medicine and its significance has been identified by the traditional communities through a process of experience over hundreds of years. The present paper documented ethno-veterinary practices of tribals related to different medicinal problems in their livestock. The study was conducted in purposively selected Banswara district of Rajasthan. A total of 120 tribal families were selected from 8 selected villages of 2 tehsils. Data were collected through interview and detailed discussion with traditional healers and family members, known about indigenous traditional knowledge. A total of 31 practices were documented in 12 different ailments.
