Kerala Will Have India's First Elephant Hospital With In-patient Treatment Facility

India's first exclusive hospital for elephants will come up in Kerala, revealed noted elephant veterinarian Jacob Cheeran. This hospital will be set up on a five-acre plot in the Kerala Veterinary and Animal Sciences University, Mannuthy. It is expected to cost Rs.10 crore.

Cheeran said, "The hospital will have an in-patient treatment facility for 10 elephants at a time. Besides, the state-of-the-art laboratory facilities would be there. The in-patient facility has become very essential as in the coming years, majority of 500 captive elephants in Kerala will be aged over 50 years and would require augmented healthcare support."
