Producing and utilizing nanotechnology in the manufacturing of veterinary herbal medicine is a subject being considered by this industry. Using nanotechnology in the manufacture of veterinary herbal medicine requires specific strategies. The Veterinary Work-group for National Council for Science and Technology Development of Medicinal Plants and Traditional Medicine of Vice-Presidency for Science and Technology has facilitated the path to produce herbal-based veterinary medicine as well as supported the relevant plans.

According to the report, at the moment a variety of herbal-based medicines are being used for the health of livestock. The application of advanced technology such as nano, in this industry, can compensate for some shortages.

Referring to the limitations in the supply of resources for the provision of medicinal plants raw material which are used in the veterinary and poultry herbal medicines, Majid Torabi, the secretary of Veterinary Work-group for National Council for Science and Technology Development of Medicinal Plants and Traditional Medicine of Vice-Presidency for Science and Technology said, “The application of advanced technology especially nanotechnology will eliminate some shortages in this industry.”

Pointing out the many applications of nanotechnology in the field of livestock and poultry, this expert of medicinal plants technology further noted, “This technology is not only used in the production of medicine, it is also practical in the production of disinfectants as well as the manufacturing of the equipment relevant to the industry. So far, eighteen nanotechnology products have been demanded for manufacturing by pharmaceutical companies, eight of which have been herbal-based  and their request is being reviewed at the moment.
