Ram’s Veterinary Interests

Ram is looking on bacteria under Transmission Electron Microscope at Murdoch University

After spending two decades working within the veterinary profession as a general practitioner, university teacher and researcher in Australia and India, Ram realized that serving sick animals is the ultimate goal of life. Ram believes that educating people about a healthy pet life style is the best way to keep pets healthier. In general Ram has enormous experiences in treating infectious diseases, skin problems, ear problems, osteoarthritis, problems of digestive system (diarrhea, vomiting and constipation), urinary tract infections and respiratory tract diseases, cat fight abscess and wounds. Ram’s clients are very happy with management of old age osteoarthritis, diarrhea and vomiting, acute coughing, skin and ear problems in dogs. Ram’s other areas of special interests are avian medicine, reptiles and other native wild life.

Research interests

Ram also believes in a better immune response than using antibiotics. Ram has a special interest in infectious diseases and role of stress in infectious diseases of animals. During PhD studies at MurdochUniversity, Ram discovered that the neurostress hormone noradrenaline potentiates the virulent factors of bacteria (Naresh and Hampson, 2011. Microbiology 157: 543-547). Ram also believes that antioxidant therapy reduces the severity and duration of disease in pets which is less recognized in veterinary medicine in comparison to human medicine. Ram is especially interested in developing a better understanding of the relationship between the disease process inside the body and the environment outside the body. Ram has worked for five years on the impact of industrial pollution on animal health as a veterinarian and has published and provided numerous facts about sub-lethal heavy metal toxicities due to the processing of ore mining material. Ram is interested in diseases of the Australian wildlife and their impact on pet health particularly the maintenance and transmission of fatal viral diseases like Canine Parvo virus.

Philosophy of my life – KARMA

 “If you sow goodness, you will reap goodness; if you sow evil, you will reap evil”. KARMA means performing your duties in right direction towards the welfare of human beings, animals and nature. Karma teaches us do not be greedy and do not favour anyone for personal reasons even if they are your family members. JUST DO THE RIGHT THINGS.

“You were born with empty fists and you will depart (after death) from this materialistic world with open hands. You cannot carry even a tiny needle or 5 cents with you. You are made up from soil, water and air. After death your body will remix with these components again”. You will be only known for your acts (KARMA). Good KARMA means a life free from fear, stress and depression. You will always feel lighter by practicing good acts (KARMA). Ram strongly believes in KARMA more than anything on earth. HELP means HUMANITY to Ram.

Ram is leading a happy, healthy single life (divorcee) from 2009 and shares the custody of 11 years old gorgeous daughter Khushi whom he adores more than anything. Ram arrived to Perth in 2005 to complete a PhD on bacterial pathogenesis with Prof. David Hampson at Murdoch University on Endeavour International Scholarship. Ram fell in love with relaxed and outdoor Aussie lifestyle and decided to call Australia his home for rest of the life. Ram enjoys cooking north Indian spicy curries, walking on beach/Swan River, swimming and mixing with people from different cultural backgrounds. In future, Ram wants to have his own well equipped practice to provide complete package of care to pets and native wildlife. Ram always dreams to be a charity to help many people and animals without having formal applications from them.
