As part of Army’s continued endeavour towards providing basic veterinary facilities to the people living in remote areas, a veterinary camp was organized in the remote areas of Miao, Changlang District, Arunachal Pradesh on March 1.

A press release by AR PRO ( Defence) stated that Changlang District is one the remotest and most  underdeveloped district of Arunachal Pradesh where people are largely dependent on agriculture and forest resources wherein domesticated animals particularly elephants contribute immensely towards the socio-economic progress and wellbeing. 

Domesticated elephants are used both to carry heavy loads to the inaccessible locations and as a means of transportation in the under developed terrain. 

Due to the lack of adequate veterinary facilities in these areas, these animals are prone to varied diseases and ailments. On the request of the farmers, livestock owners and local administration, units of Indian Army organised a Veterinary camp in which a team of well qualified veterinary doctors and staff, actively provided their services. 

The camp catered to the kind of veterinary problems faced by local livestock and domestic animals in the area.  Free medicines and vaccines were also provided during the camp. 

Response to the camp was overwhelming and over 1200 animals including 40 elephants from the nearby villages were treated. The district administration, locals and elephant owners expressed their deep gratitude to the Indian Army for organizing the veterinary camp in their area to address needs of elephants and other livestock.
