Medicinal plants have been used since the earliest times to treat different disorders of humans and animals. The aim of this study was to identify the plant, mineral and animal remedies used in the treatment of cattle diseases traditionally raised, in the submontane area of the Curvature Carpathians. Relevant information has been collected from 237 interviewed subjects on the treatments used to control diarrhoea, mastitis, external mammary gland injuries, mammary papillomatosis, indigestion, acute meteorism and respiratory disorders, foot injuries/ infections, external and internal parasite infections. There have been identified 56 plants, 8 mineral substances and 6 substances of animal origin used in the treatment of the aforementioned disorders. According to the answers of the interviewees, the most frequently used plants belong to the Asteraceae family (32.35%), followed by Rosaceae (17.64%), Aliaceae, Betulacea and Fabaceae (8.82%), and the most frequently used species were Robinia pseudoacacia, Artemisia absinthium and Sempervivum tectorum.
