Abstract

Herbal veterinary practices survey has been carried out in different areas of central Nepal among the Tamang people. Tamang people have been using the existing plant resources for different ailments to the domestic animals. This paper deals with 44 species of the herbal veterinary practices along with botanical name, Nepali name, Tamang name, family, and its uses. The knowledge of herbal practices is limited to remote areas and is descendent from generation to generation. Consequently, curing of the disease by using herbal plants is one of the most important prevailing systems in central Nepal where the veterinary hospitals are in very poor condition.
