1.1 Histology and Histological Techniques:
- Paraffin embedding technique of tissue processing and H.E. staining
- Freezing microtomy- Microscopy Bright field microscope and electron microscope.
- Cytology-structure of cell, organelles and inclusions;
- cell division-cell types
- Tissues and their classification-embryonic and adult tissues
- Comparative histology of organs-Vascular, Nervous, digestive, respiratory, musculo-skeletal and urogenital systems Endocrine glands -Integuments-sense organs.
- Embryology of vertebrates with special reference to aves and domestic mammals
- gametogenesis-fertilization-germ layers
- foetal membranes and placentation-types of placenta in domestic mammals
- Teratology-twins and twinning-organogenesis
- germ layer derivatives- endodermal, mesodermal and ectodermal derivates.
1.3 Bovine Anatomy-
- Regional Anatomy: Para-nasal sinuses of ox
- surface anatomy of salivary glands.
- Regional anatomy of infraorbital, maxillary, mandibuloalveolar, mental and cornual nerve block.
- Regional anatomy of paravertebral nerves, pudendal nerve, median ulnar and radial nerves-tibial, fibular and digital nerves-Cranial nerves
- structures involved in epidural anaesthesia-
- superficial lymph nodes-
- surface anatomy of visceral organs of thoracic, abdominal and pelvic cavities
- comparative features of locomotor apparatus and their application in the biomechanics of mammalian body.
1.4 Anatomy of Fowl
- Musculo-skeletal system-functional anatomy in relation to respiration and flying, digestion and egg production.
1.5 Pharmacology and therapeutic drugs
- Cellular level of pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics.
- Drugs acting on fluids and electrolyte balance.
- Drugs acting on Autonomic nervous system.
- Modern concepts of anaesthesia and dissociative anaesthetics. Autacoids.
- Antimicrobials and principles of chemotherapy in microbial infections.
- Use of hormones in therapeutics-chemotherapy of parasitic infections.
- Drug and economic concerns in the Edible tissues of animals
- chemotherapy of Neoplastic diseases.
- Toxicity due to insecticides, plants, metals, non-metals, zootoxins and mycotoxins.
1.6 Veterinary Hygiene with reference to water, air and habitation
- Assessment of pollution of water, air and soil-Importance of climate in animal health-
- effect of environment on animal function and performance-relationship between industrialization and animal agriculture
- animal housing requirements for specific categories of domestic animals viz. pregnant cows and sows, milking cows, broiler birds-
- stress, strain and productivity in relation to animal habitation.
