Increasing cost of veterinary inputs, indiscriminate use of antibiotics and drug residues in milk are serious issues requiring immediate attention. There is also an exigent need to combat the global threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). A field level study was carried out to evaluate the efficacy of ethno-veterinary herbal preparations (EVHP) as an alternative approach for management of mastitis, diarrhoea and pyrexia in dairy animals. The results revealed that overall clinical success rate of EVHP for dealing with mastitis, diarrhoea and pyrexia cases were 92.09%, 97.41% and 97.79% respectively. These outcomes of EVHP intervention were very encouraging and could emerge as an alternative to the usage of antibiotics in field conditions.
