Department of Veterinary Epidemiology & Preventive Medicine

Department of Veterinary Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine was established in 1991 and engaged in teaching, research and extension activities, which include teaching of 03 undergraduate courses, 14 post graduate courses and different PhD courses. Department also serves as main referral laboratory for the livestock health problems in Uttar Pradesh state. Special focus is provided to the epidemics, which spread fast and lead to severe economic losses due to heavy morbidity and/or mortality. Such epidemics are investigated and the diagnosis arrived along with necessary technical advice for corrective and preventive management of health problems in their respective areas are tendered to the Animal Health professionals of Animal Husbandry department, Uttar Pradesh. Research activities broadly include animal disease investigation and surveillance work on different animal diseases of economic importance. Extension activities are aimed at diagnostic and advisory services to farmers of Uttar Pradesh, microbiological testing of samples from field. The farmers and animal owners are also made aware of the economic impact of livestock diseases and how they can keep their livestock healthy and productive. Besides, farmers are interacted through providing information & posters distributed/displayed in Kissan fairs, Goshties and radio broadcasting.
