This is a surgery at the Camel Hospital in Dubai (DCH), a modern $ 10 million treatment facility for camels. It has attracted the attention of camel connoisseurs worldwide.
Ali Redha, general manager of DCH, emphasized: “This is the only advanced medical facility specialized in treating camels around the world. Although Qatar has had a hospital and a breeding center since 2015, it said Since opening in December 2017, DCH has become a destination for camels throughout the United Arab Emirates or even Oman.

In Dubai, with more than 300,000 camels, the industry displaying these animals is thriving. From camel beauty contests to Government funding, these animals are now being bred to race.

The hospital currently has 65 staff, including an international team of doctors and specialists, capable of simultaneously treating 22 camels with equestrian technologies in Europe and the US but modified to fit these nearly half-tonne animals.
