On September 13 the outcomes of the work on ethnovet medicine in India was presented by Prof. Punniamurthy during the World Dairy Summit of the International Dairy Federation (IDF) in Delhi, India. It was presented during the FAO-IDF session Innovative Solutions to AMR management under the title: Ethno Veterinary herbal medicine for clean milk production. The cure rate of the verified ethnovet combinations was presented, including for mastitis (86%), diarrhea (88%), Foot & Mouth Disease (93%) and fever (85%).
It is clear that within the Indian dairy context ethnovet medicine, in combination with good animal management practices, is now becoming mainstream. We hope the rest of the world, especially low- and middle-income countries, wil follow the example!
