The department "Anatomy, Histology and Pathological Anatomy of Animals" since 1930 functioned as two departments: "Anatomy of Animals" and "Histology and Pathological Anatomy". The first heads of the department “Animal Anatomy” were associate professors V. S. Naydenov and A. A. Aleutsky, and in 1931-1959 the department was headed by Honored Scientist of Uzbekistan, Professor P. P. Vinogradov. In 1959-1988, the department was headed by a student of Professor P.P. Vinogradov, Honored Agricultural Worker of Uzbekistan, Professor D.Kh. Narziev, who, having prepared 6 candidates of sciences, created a school of veterinary anatomy.
The founders of the Department of Histology and Pathological Anatomy are Professor G.M.Semenov and his student D.A. Alimov. During 1965-1994, the head of the department was Professor Sh.I. Ibrahimov. He prepared 6 candidates of sciences. In 1989, two departments, which added the Department of Anatomy, Histology and Pathological Anatomy of Animals, were merged into one department called the Department of Anatomy, Histology and Pathological Anatomy, which lasted until 2004.
In connection with the change in the organizational structure of the institute, the department of "Anatomy, Physiology, Animal Surgery and Pharmacology" was organized, which at different times was led by Professor Sh.I. Ibrahimov, Associate Professor M.Kh. Allamurodov, Associate Professor H. B. Niyozov, Associate Professor B. D. .Narziev.
Since 2018, the department was renamed the department of "Anatomy, histology and pathological anatomy of animals", Professor N.B.Dilmurodov heads the department.
The department employs 16 people of the teaching staff, of which 7 people have academic degrees: 2 doctors of sciences (DSc) (1 professor), 5 candidates of sciences (4 associate professors), 9 teachers do not have a scientific degree.
