Dr. Tarun Shridhar, IAS (Retd.), Former Secretary, Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying and Fisheries, Govt. of India inaugurated the upgraded unit on April 20th, 2022.

He congratulated the entire team for setting up new standards in Veterinary Medicine. Flanked by Dr. SPS Ghuman, Dean, College of Veterinary Science, he applauded the role of GADVASU in shaping and transforming the Veterinary profession in India by adopting and delivering ‘high tech’ Veterinary Therapeutics.

Dr. Swaran Singh Randhawa, Director of clinics, informed that within a span of one year the dialysis unit of GADVASU has emerged as the lifesaving veterinary speciality unit of north India and as such it was the dire need of the hour to upgrade and strengthen existing dialysis facilities.

Dr. Randhir Singh told that the Dialysis unit of GADVASU is equipped with all the state-of-the-art facilities which are at par with any human dialysis unit in the country. He further told that there is an exponential increase in the cases of renal failure over the last 4-5 years.

On average, 4-5 dogs are daily presented in medicine OPD which are diagnosed with renal failure and based on our selection criteria 2-3 such dogs are suitable candidates for undergoing dialysis.

The dialysis unit of GADVASU is fully equipped with the latest dialysis machines, Doppler blood pressure monitor, infusion pump, multi-parameter monitors, and centralized oxygen supply.

This unit is also backed by expert radiology, ultrasound, echocardiography and transfusion facilities. With the up-gradation of the Dialysis Unit, we hope that we would be able to provide this life-saving modality to more pets with kidney-related problems, Dr. Randhir added.
