The Maetaeng Elephant Park & Clinic has been pivotal in the care and welfare of all the elephants in northern Thailand. In the past when one of the herd falls ill the park relied soley on the Government Elephant hospital in Lampang outside Chiang Mai.
This is a 3 hour journey by truck which can lead to more stress to the elephant. The veterinary team from Lampang Elephant Hospital works closely with Maetaeng Elephant Parks veterinary team as well as veterinary students from the local universities. The elephant park is constantly changing and discovering different and unique ways to better increase the care and welfare and long term sustainability for the Asian Elephant in Thailand.
