The work of a Thailand hospital devoted solely to treating elephants. Reveals the day-to-day challenges of dealing with supersized patients suffering everything from deadly viruses to cuts and parasites. It also shows how the facility teaches baby elephants new commands and even turns elephant poo into fertiliser.
A night-time emergency stretches the hospital as three sick female elephants from the same sanctuary are admitted with colic. One of the patients arrives with her four-month-old baby, who stays while her mother receives treatment, but it proves to be a massive task to nurse these big patients back to health.
