Abstract
The most critical aspect of food security in a pastoral system is that of keeping livestock healthy to sustain people who are dependent on them in time of drought. Livestock provide food security directly through a family's consumption of their products and indirectly through cash which is used to purchase staple grain, and through exchange oflivestock between families . The objective ofthis study was to address the problem oflivestock health challenges (general diseases, ectoparasites and helminths), assess availability of drugsin the pastoral Samburu District of Kenya and attempt to solve these problems by a combination oflocal knowledge and modern scientific approaches.
