Medicinal plants were used as treatment many years ago, and now the raw materials of most medicines are obtained from plants. Recently, due to the lack of side effects, the variety of effective compounds in plants, the development of industries related to the cultivation of medicinal plants, the recommendations of the World Health Organization to use plants, and several other reasons, the use of medicinal plants has been widespread. Numerous studies have been performed to investigate the effects of medicinal plants and microbial flora on wound healing. Previous studies revealed the positive effects of medicinal plants on wound healing compared to other chemical drugs, and a significant reduction in inflammation, acceleration of the healing process, and reduction of oxidative stress were observed following the use of herbal medicines. In this review, the effects of the most important Iranian medicinal plants and microbial flora on wound healing in veterinary medicine have been investigated.
