Extending of Ayurveda to Veterinary Field

New Delhi.  “Pasu Ayurveda” or Veterinary Ayurveda is an integral part of Ayurvedic Science on which several Ayurvedic literatures/texts are available. Several books have been written for diagnosis and treatment of diseases of cows, horses, elephants, camels, birds, etc. in Ayurveda. The Ayurvedic medicines described in these texts, as well as, patent/proprietary Ayurvedic medicines developed from such drugs are used by qualified Ayurvedic Physicians for treating animals.

Important efforts made by the Government for Ayurveda in veterinary field are as follows : i) Central Council for Research in Ayurvedic Sciences under Department of AYUSH has undertaken research work on antidandruff and wound healing activities of some Ayurvedic drugs for animals.

ii) Recently, the Council has renamed one of its Institute at Lucknow as “National Veterinary Ayurveda Research Institute & Hospital” to explore more research activities in this area.

iii) Pharmacopoeia Commission of Indian Medicine has co-opted three experts for the sub-Committee on veterinary Ayurveda. The Committee has identified 22 ancient Ayurvedic veterinary books and 50 Ayurvedic veterinary formulations to develop the quality standards. [PIB ]
