Abstract: The present investigation was carried out in 40 guinea pig with the aim to investigate the efficacy of some indigenous medicinal plants in the treatment of external wounds. Two wounds of 2.00 cm length and 0.5 cm depth were made on the opposite thigh muscles and the effects of some antibacterial and some indigenous medicinal plants leaves were observed separately. Among the antibacterial used in this studies comparatively Nebanol powder showed the best result and was more effective for the treatment of fresh wounds in which healing occurred with in 11 days, Where as it was taken 13 days for sulfanilamide powder and 15 days for dusting powder treated groups. In the present experiment the leaves of the Neem, Ganda, Mehedi and raw Halid were applied as fresh aqueous pastes for the treatment of artificially produce wound in guinea pig. In comparison to their effect, Neem leaves paste showed the more effectiveness where healing was completed on 15 days, Halud paste and Ganda leaves pastes showed the same results, where healing was completed on 17 days. The Mehedi paste was the least effective in which healing occurred on 19 days. This investigation suggested that Neem leaves fresh paste are more effective for wound healing in guinea pig which may be suggested for the treatment of fresh wound healing of other livestock.
