Sick Elephant Sak Surin Clears Medical Examination in Thailand

Sak Surin, the elephant who recently returned to Thailand from Sri Lanka, has passed his latest medical examination with flying colors. The results of a blood analysis conducted by the Animal Health Institute and Veterinary Research and Development Centre confirmed that Sak Surin is free from any elephant-related diseases.

The examination ruled out the presence of Trypanosoma evansi, tuberculosis, herpes, leptospirosis, foot and mouth disease, and brucella abortus in the elephant. As a precautionary measure, Sak Surin will remain in quarantine until early August.

The Elephant Conservation Center in Lampang province reported that Sak Surin’s health assessment is currently at Level 3 out of 5. The elephant has a regular diet of 120-200 kg of grass and fruit, including tamarind, along with salt intake. His digestive system is functioning normally, and he sleeps twice a night for approximately 3 hours each time.

The conservation center is fully committed to providing the necessary care and attention for Sak Surin’s successful reintegration into his new environment. A follow-up medical examination will be conducted in 15 days to ensure the continued well-being of the elephant.
