We report folk veterinary phytotherapy in Italy collected from ethnobotanical scientific literature of the second half of the 20th Century. References are cited together with unpublished data gathered recently in the field by the authors. The data have been placed in two databases: one organized by the names of the plant species (> 260) and the other organized by bibliographic references. This represents the basis for the first national databank for ethnoveterinary botany in Europe. Plants not yet sufficiently studied in pharmacology and veterinary phytotherapy were also identified.
