A website for veterinarians taking care of elephants

Sharing your clinical experience in


with elephant clinicians worldwide

This website provides information about elephant diseases, procedures and recommendations. It also includes a collection of clinical case reports, submitted by veterinarians from all over the world. You will find cases that have been successfully treated, but also cases that had a sad ending. Some basic disease information is provided as well as descriptions of clinical and laboratory procedures.

The information on this website is subject to changes, as our knowledge about diseases in elephants will grow by sharing our experiences.

Veterinarians involved in elephant medicine are encouraged to submit reports of their experiences. Together we can create a platform for the current and next generations of veterinarians. For the benefit of an amazing, but vulnerable species: the elephant.
