Nutrition and pathology are related disciplines. Gounelle (1961) observed that "Every disease has a nutritional aspect. Pathology is concerned with specific disease process and resultant tissue changes in the individual what ever its systemic position. The study of disease process involves at a greater extent the histological examination of various organs and tissues. The histological examination of tissue in a nutritional experiment provide an opportunity to observe the resultant changes occurring at cellular level. Many times a particular treatment may not produce any physiological or reproductive effect immediately; however histological examination may reveal considerable changes. It is also important before advocating any feed or a combination of feed for field use we have to ascertain whether the said combination contain any type of toxic factor This can be settled only by conducting an experiment in which histopathological examination forms the major component.
