This study was aimed at studying the socio-economic status of ethno-veterinary practitioners of Bidar district. Majority practiced it as a matter of self-interest and thought that animal treatment is a noble job rather than for monetary benefits. Though they learnt from their ancestors, but no youngsters were involved in traditional method of livestock treatment. The study indicated a need of institutional linkage and integrating traditional healing with conventional health system so that their knowledge level is enhanced, their services could be expanded to remote areas of the district and also for better recognition of traditional healers.
