Don't miss this on Channel 5 on 3 and 10 September 2020 at 9pm.
The programme is called Elephant Hospital and it's the world's largest elephant hospital nestled in the forests of Thailand in Lampang. It's open 24/7 and is a sort of NHS for elephants.
It cares for over 100 sick, injured or neglected animals every year. And if the elephants can't come to the hospital, the vets go to the elephants!
Vets and mahouts - keepers - look after these wonderful animals around the clock. In the first programme (there are 2 parts) we meet Minnie who is feverish, and a bull with a deep cut in his leg, bless him.
This is a heart-warming series with uplifting and unexpected stories, be they treating an elephant with cancer or fitting a prosthetic leg to one that has lost a limb after standing on a land mine.
I am looking for ways to donate to this hospital - watch this space
It's supported by Friends of the Asian Elephant and here is their Facebook page.
The programmes (there are two in the series) are produced by Maverick TV which has more information on its website.
