World’s first camel hospital is all set to expand its facilities
At Dubai, the world’s first camel hospital is all set to expand its facilities by an additional 50% in response to the increase in demand for its services. It is a unique hospital catering specifically to the needs of the burgeoning camel industry that has been flourishing and growing by leaps and bounds over the past few years. The aim of the hospital is to contribute significantly to the Research and Development (R&D) of camel medicine as part of increasing the global body of therapeutic knowledge related to the desert animal. Camels are an integral part of the United Arab Emirate (UAE)’s heritage. Historically, camels, known as the ‘Ship of the Desert’ were a source of transport as well as food and milk in the region.
