Designation: Professor Contact Address: Department of Veterinary Physiology & Biochemistry, College of Veterinary Science, Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University, Ludhiana 141004 Telephone : 0161-2414034 Mobile: +91-9417476565(R) Email: email@example.com
I am actively involved in undergraduate and post graduate teaching since joining this department of Veterinary Physiology in erstwhile Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana. Cardiovascular, digestive, lactation physiology and endocrinology has been the areas of my teaching till now.I have prepared the teaching manuals for cardiovascular, digestive physiology and climatology besides making other visual material for effective teaching.
Area of Research Interests
The areas of my research interest include Cardiovascular, digestive and reproductive physiology. I have guided three postgraduate students who have successfully submitted their dissertations on Studies on physiological profiles of Flunixin Meglumine and Dexamethasone administration during Endotoxic shock in buffalo calves, Studies on physiological effects of flunixin meglumine, dextran-40 and whole blood in various combinations in endotoxemic buffalo calves and Physio-pathological studies on induced endotoxemia in buffalo calves respectively. Besides that I have successfully completed a research project entitled “Effect of Herbal formulation on digestibility and nutrient utilization of wheat straw in buffalo calves” financed by AYURVET, BADDI (HP). The significant findings from my research are: 1. The treatment combination of Hypertonic Saline Solution @ 4ml/Kg bw + Plasmex-D-40 @ 10 ml/Kg bw +Flunixin meglumine@ 1.1 mg/Kg bw + blood @ 20ml / kg bw was found to be the best out of all the combinations tried. 2. Hypertonic saline, Flunixin meglumine @ 1.1mg/Kg bw and Dexamethasone @ 4mg/Kg bw in different combinations effectively restore the various hemodynamic parameters to normal pre-infusion values and that these treatment combinations can be used as immediate resuscitation measure to provide the clinician valuable time to plan further long term treatment.
Year of Start
Studies on the effect of Yea Sacc1026 supplementation on rumen profile of buffalo calves exclusively fed wheat straw.
(In collaboration with post graduate student) Effect of UMMB lick on ruminal profiles of buffalo calves exclusively fed wheat straw.
