Tsavo Mobile Veterinary Unit Report for May 2021

Published on the 15th of June, 2021

The month of May was characterised by a rise in daytime temperatures and cold windy nights. Large numbers of wildlife species could be seen crowding around remaining waterholes since much of the Tsavo ecosystem was drying up

During the month of June, the SWT/KWS Tsavo Mobile Veterinary Unit attended to three separate snaring cases, involving two elephants and a female waterbuck. In addition, two elephants were treated for lameness, and four tracker dogs - being part of the SWT/KWS Canine Unit at Kaluku - received annual checkups, during which they were given prophylactic treatment for trypanosomiasis. Autopsies were conducted on a rhino calf and zebra carcass.
