Everyday medical treatments
15-year-old Ye’Aung helps his owners haul teak logs through the jungles of Myanmar. The elephant had been vomiting every time he ate or drank, causing him to quickly lose body mass. Upon examination, SPANA vets found a large blockage of rice and sugar cane weighing 1.6 kg. The weak elephant was patient as the team set to work removing the blockage until it was completely cleared. Ye’Aung had not eaten in three days and his body condition was poor, so he was given a course of dextrose saline and multivitamins to replenish vital nutrients. Over the next four days he was given pain-killing injections to help his digestive muscles work effectively, as well as antibiotics to fight bacterial infection.
This gift will help us restock our mobile clinics with essential medication and relieve animals like Ye’Aung from pain and suffering.
