About our Honourable speaker,
Dr. Deepa Katyal
MV.Sc.(Mumbai), MV.St (Australia)
– She is a leading veterinarian practitioner in Mumbai, INDIA.
On completion of her masters degree in parasitology from Mumbai, she enrolled in the University of Queensland, Australia, to pursue her second masters degree in veterinary studies.
Her international exposure included working with the legendary Australian wildlife expert and conservationist Steve Irwin.
– In the course of her two decade career, she has been involved with many animal welfare and animal rights organisations in various capacities. Her selfless work towards treatment of stray animals and fostering of accident and trauma cases which included wild animals is well known She is also one of the very few veterinarian offering pain management in animals, as an important part of clinical practice.
– She was on the board of directors of the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management, USA (IVAPM.ORG) from 2016-2019.
– Her association with various voluntary organisations such as PETA, RAWW, TSPCA, PFA (Trustee), amongst several other such organisations spans over a decade and a half. All of these are organisations typically involved in rescues, rehabilitation of wild birds, exotics including reptiles and other species, fostering, treatments as well as adoptions of stray and abandoned pets.
– Currently a trustee for Kalote Animal Trust which is an end home as well as rehabilitation shelter to around 400 different animals including wild life such as maimed primates , exotic reptiles and birds that are injured and cannot be released back into the wild.
– Her practice as well as work with the voluntary organisations saw her witness a high number of neurological and trauma cases where animals were even paralyzed and the only humane option then was Euthanasia. After completion of a NAVC Institute Pain Management Program, she practiced pain management using acupuncture needles, TENS and cold laser alleviating the pain of many animals effectively with highly satisfying results. She is one of few veterinarians offering physiotherapy and rehabilitation services in her city.
– She reintroduced the concept of wheel carts and mobility harnesses which improve the lives of paralysed patients as well as their human companions. She plans to get more deeply involved in the subject and hopes to be able to help more immobile animals get back on their feet or at least be free of pain and have a better quality of life.

has been featured in many newspapers, magazines, media channels etc. for her outstanding medical and rehabilitation work for animals , https://youtu.be/Icg0vsPlWs0
– She plans to spread awareness about the significance of recognising early signs of pain in pets by the owners, and emphasise the advantages of integrated pain management as an added tool in daily practice, along side of regular allopathic treatment amongst fellow veterinarians
