Introduction

The Department of Animal Resources is as old as the institute and is a core department of IPR. It was started at the inception of the institute as it is responsible for the husbandry and veterinary care of the laboratory animals in the institute.
The founding staff are the veterinarians, animal health technicians and animal attendants. Later a diagnostic and pathology section was started to give support to the husbandry and veterinary care where samples can be internally processed for diagnosis that will help in the treatment of sick animals. The staff are also involved in individual research proposal writing and research activities.
