2018-04-07: Our veterinarians at the Southern Elephant Hospital at Krabi are giving plasma to a young calf, Pang Namtan, from Samui. She arrived with a swollen face, hemorrhagic spots on her tongue due to EEHV (Elephant Endotheliotropic Herpes Virus). EEHV is a deadly virus infection that had been responsible for the deaths of young elephants from 1 - 10 years old. Pang Namtan is receiving antiviral and plenty of fluid therapy to stabilize her and she is also getting plasma from Plai Ning Nong, a male elephant at the Elephant Hospital at TECC, Lampang.
