The present study was carried out in two small towns namely Santir Bazar and Julaibari situated within the subdivision of South District Tripura to document the traditionally used ethnomedicinal plants for curing domestic animal ailments prevailing in the locality. Four developmental blocks Bakafa and Jolaibari in the Santir Bazar subdivision and Amarpur and Karbook in the Jatanbari subdivision were selected for the survey. Data were collected through a structured questionnaire and observations were made during the field visit. The Forest Department facilitated the consultation of nine traditional healers along with other village elders. In the present investigation we have reported a total of 37 species of plants belonging to 32 families of 37 genera used by local communities to treat various animal ailments. These include 14 herb species, 9 trees, 7 climbers, 5 shrubs, 1 grass, and 1 epiphyte. The reported plants were used to treat majorly seven ailments viz., cuts and wounds, bone injury, skin infection, eye infection, dysentery, indigestion and constipation. The survey is preliminary in the area and needs further support to cover other areas occupied by tribal communities.
