Veterinary Medicine Division
Organized scientific research in veterinary medicine at IVRI is nearly three decades old when necessity was felt to take up research pertaining to clinical and surgical management of complex disease problems of livestock and to develop animal models for research in comparative medicine and allied disciplines. This led to, the creation of Division of Experimental Medicine and Surgery in 1975 with specialized laboratories and sections viz., laboratories of Therapeutic and Clinical Medicine, Radiodiagnosis, Radiotherapy, Anesthesia and Forensic science, Archives of Medicine and Surgery.
The ongoing scientific and technical advances in veterinary medicine and surgery paved the way to bifurcate the Divisions of Experimental Medicine and Surgery into two independent divisions. Thus the Division of Medicine was established in 1993 with the basic mandate to provide better health for improved livestock production through evaluation and development of quick diagnostic methods, safe and effective remedial and preventive measures against economically important diseases of livestock.
The Division takes active role in involved in various extension programmes of JD Extension Education, Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK), of the Institute and Institute Village Linkage Programme (IVLP), Ministerial Programs like Sansad Aadarsh Gram Yojna (SAGY) and Mera-Gaon-Mera-Gaurav (MGMG) program. Regular clinical camps are also organized to provide effective treatment to livestock and to bring about awareness amongst the farmers for better upkeep of their animals by adopting latest research findings.
