Dr. Ilayaraja recently attended the ‘Asian Meeting on Zoo and Wildlife Medicine/Conservation’ in Bangkok, Thailand. He presented several veterinary papers on some medical findings Wildlife SOS has made with treating rescued ‘dancing bears’ and elephants. The papers included the wound healing of a severely injured and malnourished elephant, as well as two case studies on sloth bears, one diagnosed with a rare eye pathology and another diagnosed with Trichobezoar (hairball). Dr. Raja is happy to be able to share his unique knowledge and perspective with the rest of the wildlife community in the hopes that it will help other wildlife. He is also thrilled to have the opportunity to learn from others to further his knowledge and be more effective with diagnosis and treatment with the animals in his care.
