India gets first specialized hospital for elephants

-

In collaboration with Uttar Pradesh Government, Wildlife SOS launched the India’s first fully equipped hospital for elephants.

India is home for 27,312 elephants across 23 states, according to Elephant Census 2017. Elephants are vulnerable to illegal poaching, trade of elephant ivory and other wildlife products. There is a lack of proper facility to take care of elephants.

This hospital, with a built-up area of 12,000 square feet, comes as a boon to the elephants. Located near Agra, Mathura, it is near the Elephant Conservation and Care Center (ECCC).

The hospital is equipped with Wireless Digital X-Ray, Laser Treatment, Dental X-Ray, Thermal imaging, Ultrasonography, Hydrotherapy, Tranquilization Equipment and Quarantine facilities.

Designed to treat injured, sick or geriatric elephants, the hospital has a medical hoist for lifting elephants requiring critical care, a pathology laboratory, digital weighing scale, Elephant Restraining Device (ERD) with a dedicated indoor treatment enclosure for longer medical procedures.

Wildlife SOS will also be conducting training courses to spread knowledge on elephant medical care, humane elephant management and veterinary procedures to spread compassion.
