Elephant Aid International : Projects
Staff Veterinarian - NEW 2012
Thanks to Your Help EAI Hired a Veterinarian to Oversee our Nepal Projects!
EAI has engage the services of Dr. Arjun Pandit in Sauraha, Chitwan National Park, Nepal. The timing is perfect!
This is our third year in Sauraha. With the ongoing foot care and mahout training and the new chain-free enclosure and training and foot care wall, it is essential that we hire a veterinarian to coordinate and supervise our activities. It will also be much easier to expand our welfare projects in Nepal with such a professional in place.
Simply building a chain-free corral and a training and foot care wall for the mahouts and their elephants is not enough. We also need to formalize our Compassionate Elephant Care training and create incentives to encourage the mahouts to become more engaged in all aspects of their elephants’ care and well being. Additionally, once our collaborative effort to create an elephant retirement home is realized, our veterinarian will monitor the daily care of the resident elephants.
In addition to overseeing EAI’s projects, our veterinarian will work closely with Dr. Gairhe, the senior government veterinarian, assisting in rhino counts and regular animal management activities undertaken by the National Trust for Nature Conservation-Biodiversity Conservation Center.
EAI is responsible for Dr. Pandit's salary and all necessary equipment, lab work, travel and any other expenses we deem appropriate.
Our budget for the first year is $15,000 which includes salary and other costs associated with Dr. Pandit's work for EAI.

Homeopathic First Aid Emergency Remedy Kit - 30C - $109.00
This kit contains fifty remedies chosen for acute and emergency situations, a very handy kit for travel. I have found that homeopathic remedies help relieve minor pain and discomfort and aid in calming a stressed, frightened or injured elephant. The remedies are easy to administer. Just dissolve the small pellet in water and spray or pour the liquid into the elephants' mouth. The remedy is nearly tasteless and most elephants readily open their mouth to receive it. Homeopathy is non pharmaceutical.
We need one kit - 30C - $109.00

Thanks to Cathy, Cora, Margaret, Rose, Donna and Sandra, I have a fresh homeopathy kit to take to Asia. The elephants respond so well to a natural, non pharmaceutical approach to wellness. Thanks for helping needy elephants in this way. Namaste, Carol
