Çağrı Çağlar Sinmez, Gökhan Aslım, Aşkın Yaşar.

Abstract
Aim: The aims of the present study were to determine the significant species utilized in ethnoveterinary medicine, identify methods used for different ethnoveterinary medicine preparations, and to compare the plants utilized in traditional veterinary medicine and the plants utilized in the other regions of Turkey and different parts of the world. Methods: Interviews were conducted with 173 individuals in total by means of a semi-structured questionnaire between 2009-2013 for the purpose of recording traditional ethnoveterinary practices employed in animal health care. In order to evaluate the reliability and richness of the knowledge of medicinal plants in the area, quantitative indices, such as “informant consensus factor”, “use value”, “relative frequency citation”, and “fidelity level”, were used for the data analysis.
Results: The findings of this study have revealed 26 plant species, including herbs and trees, belonging to 22 families utilized in the treatment of veterinary dermatological diseases by breeders in Central Anatolia. Rosaceae, Fabaceae and Liliaceae were the most common representatives of these families used to treat eight dermatological ailment categories with the percentages of 13.6, 9.09 and 9.09, respectively.
Conclusion: The current study has emphasized the ethnoveterinary knowledge of recently discovered plants and their new usage in the Central Anatolia Region of Turkey.

Key words: Ethnoveterinary medicine, medicinal plants, veterinary dermatology
