Traditional medicinal practices using herbs are still playing a major role in the treatment of cattle diseases in developing countries. In the present study, different concentrations and combinations of aqueous extract of Andrographis paniculata, Lawsonia inermis and Madhuca longifolia were used for the preparation of herbal formulation to treat animals infected with skin disease caused by microbes under in vivo condition. Number of days took for the animals for complete recovery was recorded and compared with the allopathic drugs Povidone iodine ointment and Candid cream used as control. Animals treated with herbal formulations recovered faster (5-8 days) than with allopathic drugs (19-21 days). This combination of herbal drug is novel, effective, economical and safe for treating the skin disease of animals.
