A wildlife conservation organization in Cambodia has told Rasmei Kampuchea that a group of foreign veterinarians has arrived in Cambodia’s Mondulkiri province, bringing medical equipment and supplies for the treatment of elephant diseases.
Khun Dion, director of Cambodia’s elephant conservation organization in Mondolkiri, reported that through the results of the teacher’s examination medical experts have suggested that nearly 40 elephants have some medical problems.
In addition, some elephants have the TB disease requiring a 15-day inspection. These elephants have been diagnosed by doctors.
Dr. Dion praised physicians from Australia and the United States, who volunteered to check the elephants for two weeks.
The vets also distributed syringes and drugs for treating TB and other problems.
