Veterinary Ayurveda

Ayurveda is the oldest existing medical system. In India the history of traditional veterinary science dates back to the period of Mahabharat. During the battle of mahabharat thousands of animals got hurt and also suffered from various diseases which were then treated with medicinal plants. Prince Nakula and Prince Sahadeva were the Physicians of Horses and Cows respectively.

Animals received good medicinal care in ancient India. Physicians treating human being are also trained in the care of animals. Indian medical treatises like Charaka, Sushruta and Harita samhita contain references of care of animals. The greatest and most revered teacher of veterinary science was Salihotra, the father of veterinary science followed by Palkapya and Atreye. Almost all aspects of surgery and medicine including veterinary ethics were dealt-in ancient medical veterinary treatises.
