The origin of veterinary medicine in Russia

Archaeological studies show that in the territory of modern Russia, primitive man was a farmer and livestock farmer for another 6-8 thousand years BC. Primitive people brought domesticated animals to this region in the process of natural resettlement and development of new agricultural territories. Such movements were necessary for the development of new pastures and land. Of course, people of that time transferred experience of working with them to new places with domesticated animals, including the simplest sanitary and hygienic techniques. Particularly fast was the development of new territories after the domestication of a horse. During this period, people inevitably had to, in addition to the experience they knew about caring for animals, master some techniques that ensure the working capacity and productivity of animals, and prevent their diseases in new climatic conditions. Additional information was extremely necessary, as animals fell into new, more severe, climatic and natural conditions. Such information was transmitted orally from generation to generation and formed the basis of what is defined as rational folk veterinary medicine. In subsequent periods, much of this information was used in writing.

As already noted in the Middle Ages, as the triumph of Christianity, literacy in Western Europe was preserved only in a closed life outside the walls of city-states and monasteries.
The way of life of the Slavs, and other peoples living in the territory of modern Russia, was sharply different from the way of life of the peoples of Western Europe. Representatives of the peoples living in the territory of modern Russia easily traveled by boat from Novgorod to Kiev and further to Constantinople. They had information about walruses, beluga whales, and northern whale species. Many wall paintings, archaeological finds and other monuments have been preserved confirming that the peoples living in the early Middle Ages on the territory of modern Russia were familiar with livestock breeding technologies and the simplest methods of preventing and treating animal diseases.

They took all this from their ancestors who had moved here from the southern primitive communal settlements and adapted to local climatic and natural conditions.

Livestock farming was one of the main sources of life for the Slavs and other peoples living in those years on the territory of modern Russia.
