Miscellaneous Topics
Since animals and plants are regarded as a part of the same cosmos as humans, it is not surprising that animal and plant life was keenly protected and veterinary medicine was a distinct branch of science with its own hospitals and scholars. Numerous texts, especially of the postclassical period, Vishnudharmottar Mahaapuraan for example, mention veterinary medicine. Megasthnese refers to the kind of treatment which was later to be incorporated in Palakapya Muni's Hastyaayur Ved and similar treatises. Shaalihotra was the most eminent authority on horse breeding and hippiatry. Juadudatta gives a detailed account of the medical treatment of cows in his Ashwa-Vaidyak
(source: Indian and World Civilization - By DP Singhal, Michigan State Univ Pr, November 1969, ASIN 0870131435 p.187-188). For more refer to chapter on Hindu Culture II.
