With the inception of the College of Veterinary Science in November 1969, the Department of Veterinary Physiology was created with one Assistant Professor and one Professor. Gradually the facilities in terms of Laboratory space, equipment, etc. were procured and other infrastructure was developed, for teaching, research and extension programmes. In 2009, the Dept. of Veterinary Biochemistry was merged with this department. Presently, the Department of Veterinary Physiology and Biochemistry is headed by a Professor, assisted by two Professors and four Assistant Professors. The department is predominantly involved in UG and PG teaching of physiology and biochemistry. The department has fully developed laboratories for carrying out the research on the physiological and biochemical aspects of animal health and production, and is extending these facilities to other departments of the University.
