People in different parts of the world depend on plants and plant parts to fulfill their daily needs and have developed unique knowledge of their utilization. There have been very few studies on the ethnobotanical studies of the plants that are used for the treatment of livestock diseases in Nepal. This study aims to document information about ethnobotanical information of plants used for the treatment of livestock diseases in Sardikhola VDC of Kaski district. Information on the use of plants were collected in April-May 2009 by interviewing key informants using a semi-structured open-ended questionnaire. Altogether 18 plant species belonging to 17 families were recorded as being used for treatment of different livestock diseases. This traditional knowledge is declining as the younger generation shows less interest in using plants. Further research in this field is necessary as this finding may help to counter the needs of people during a scarcity.
