Organic farmers raise poultry and rabbits in British Columbia using ethnoveterinary remedies and natural feedstuffs. These ethnoveterinary practices were documented from interviews and a participatory workshop. This paper includes the plants used for respiratory conditions, nutrition and dental care of rabbits. Some of the plants have been used in animal and human health for centuries such as Echinacea spp., Chenopodium spp., Artemisia spp., and Nicotiana spp. Many of the plants used are also grown in the tropics and could be used there. Ethnoveterinary medicinal use can contribute to on-farm plant biodiversity.
