The Department of Veterinary Pathology is actively involved in Teaching, Research & Extension. As per mandate and Academic Regulations of University, the Department is actively involved in UG/PG/Ph.D teaching as per the syllabus designed by University and other national authorities. In addition to teaching, as a mandatory part, the Faculty is actively involved in need based research. The Department is conducting agency sponsored research schemes (Recently termed Contractual Research) on various aspects as per the need of sponsoring agency. The commercial research is also being conducted by this department especially through tissue processing & reporting. The Faculty is always extending its services to Animal Owners through disease diagnosis by means of P.M. examination of Animals, Poultry, laboratory examination of blood & urine & histopathological examination of tissue samples collected as biopsy material or during P.M. examination and suggests suitable guidelines to Animal Owners, Poultry owners , field Veterinarians and Technocrats. The Faculty of this Department also takes part in Extension through radio talks, cattle shows & Animal health camps & by publishing articles in local language. The necropsy data, so far generated when screened revealed Pneumonia & Enteritis as major pathological conditions noted in all age types of animals. In addition, the infectious diseases like H.S., B.Q, unusual foreign bodies, accidental cases of Snake bite, parasitic infestations in general & Theileriosis, Babesiosis & Trypanosomiasis in particular are being noted as causation of death in animals. In broilers, Colibacillosis, Visceral gout, Ascites, CCRD & Coccidiosis are contributors of mortality.
