The brand new Dubai Camel Hospital boasts state-of-the-art medical equipment, pristine operating theatres and a team of worldwide specialist veterinarians.

Mohamed Al Bulooshi is the director of the facility, which is located next to the Dubai Camel Racing Club in Al Marmoum, on the southern outskirts of the city. As the hospital is the first of its kind, much of its equipment had to be manufactured specially for the requirements of a dromedary.

The hospital intends to help in the research and development of camel medicine. "There are a lot of equine hospitals but for camels, no", he said.

"We found that we must care for camels not only by breeding and raising them, but also by being able to medically treat them", Bulooshi said.

The hospital can treat up to 20 camels, and is equipped with a mini-race track to get the camels up and running after their medical procedures. MRI and CAT scanning facilities are to be installed next year.
