    Traditional healing practices have been applied for centuries to keep animals healthy and have been passed down orally from generation to generation. These traditional practices are calledEthnoveterinary medicine. Ethnoveterinary remedies generally use locally available ingredients (such as plants, soil, minerals and animal parts) and are easy to prepare and administer, at little or no cost to the farmer. These age-old practices cover every area of veterinary specialisation and all livestock species. Ethnoveterinary techniques include treatment and prevention of disease, extensive preparations, ecto-and endo-parasite control, fertility enhancement, bone setting and improving mothering.
    Ethnoveterinary medicine is the name given to the way in which most livestock keepers in Cameroon and other countries treat animal health problems.
    Ethnovet practices are important because they are easily available, inexpensive and effective, especially in rural areas where veterinary services are absent or irregular and expensive. At this level, indigenous animal health systems are used for emergency purposes.
    This manual has been compiled from information contributed by members of the ethnovet council in Cameroon and pastoralists in Kenya. It describes ethnovet practices in Cameroon and Kenya, but these practices are valid for other East and West African countries as well.

    Thank you!
