Abstract

This study comprises of an ethnoveterinary report of medicinal plants of Samahni valley. It provides folk medicinal uses of plants used for treatment of various diseases of domestic animals. Among these important traditional knowledge is as; Albizzia lebbeck is used to treat chronic diarrhoea, dysentery and snake bite, Abutilon theophrasti in ephemeral fever, Bauhania variegata in severe constipation, Butea monosperma, Linum usitatissimum and Taraxacum officinale as tonic to enhance milk and butter production, Calotropis procera and Phyllanthus acidus as antidote for snake bite, Canabinus sativus as anti ecto-parasites, Capsicum annum and Putrangiva roxburgii in bad eye effects, Carissa opaca and Viola kashmiriana in Mokhar, Citrullus colcynthus as antihelmintic, Citrullus limon as tonic for prolapse of uterus, Dalbergia sisso for bilious disorders, Grewia asiatica effective in release of after birth, Gymnosporia royleana in spleen pain, Momordica dioca in lungs disorders, Musa paradisiaca to enhance pregnancy, Ricinus communis in mange of goat, Sassuria heteromala for horse bite, Trichodesma indica in mastitis. Every plant species is provided with correct botanical name, local name, ethnomedicinal use(s) and mode of use. These folk lore informations hold water how traditional ethnomedicines have paramount importance in life and culture of a community generally and how these ethnoherbal data have key role in life, society and economy of people of area and more over it can be initiative for further phytochemical and pharmacological investigations about these medicinal plants of valley, which may be a step ahead towards new drug development. And last but not least, this report will helpful for some departments, forest, environmental, veterinary and lay man to provide clue for conservation of natural flora as before it is totally diminished from the surface.
