India's first elephant hospital opens in Mathura

India's first elephant hospital opens in Mathura

India's first elephant hospital, which houses 20 rescued animals in Mathura, has opened its specialised hydrotherapy treatment for the jumbos suffering from arthritis, joint pain, and foot ailments.

The jumbo jacuzzi pool, located on the banks of the Yamuna river, is 11-foot-deep and has 21 high pressure jet sprays that create water pressure that massage the elephants’ feet and body and help in increasing blood circulation. According to wildlife doctors, hydrotherapy is an effective complementary treatment for the elephants’ suffering from painful joints and feet.

The hospital, which was established by the NGO Wildlife SOS, is being run in collaboration with Uttar Pradesh Forest Department. The hospital, which started operations in November 2018, is equipped with state-of-the-art modern facilities to treat injured, sick and geriatric elephants.
