- Establishment of soil-plant-animal relationship through the analysis of trace elements in blood serum, fodder, concentrate mixture and soil.
- Evaluation of aqueous and ethanolic extracts of Acacia auriculiformis, Aegle marmelos & Cassia fistula against New castle disease in chicken.
- Evaluation of clinical & laboratory approaches for assessment of dehydration and execution of rehydration therapy in neonatal diarrhoeic calves.
- Preparation of immunoglobulin product which is useful to prevent calf mortality in those calves which fail to receive colostrum of their dams.
- Development of polyherbal formulation containing Eugenia jambolana, Aegle marmelos, Terminalia chebula & Zingiber officinale which is an effective and cheap therapeutic alternative for the treatment of diarrhoea in calves of below 30 days of age.
- Development of computer model to predict the occurrence of common calf diseases.
- Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha) and antioxidants (Selenium, Vit. E etc) either alone or with antibiotics is an effective therapy for mastitis.
- Formulation of herbal pastes containing either garlic or lead carbonate & acetate, camphor, neem and eucalyptus oil with paraffin base which are almost equally effective in non-specific dermatosis.
- Preparation of herbal formulation containing Nerium indicum, Pongamina glabra, Jatrapha curcas, Curcuma longa and copper sulphate which is most effective against fungal dermatoses followed by sarcoptic mange and somewhat less effective in thick/lice infestation and bacterial dermatitis with cellulitis.
- Aqueous (colloidal) iodine is highly effective for therapeutic management of endemic goitre.
