Dr Aon, the new Veterinary Officer at the Khok Kloi Veterinary Centre, joined STEF Thailand after working for four years at the Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand, where she was Chief of the Veterinary Department and involved in organising rescue and release procedures as well as treating hundreds of animals in their care. As well as elephants, she has worked with macaques, sun bears, lions and tigers, among others, and she has had additional specialist training in endoscopy, ophthalmology and dentistry.
Dr Aon studied at the Mahanakom University of Technology where she qualified as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. As well as her own Thai language, Dr Aon speaks fluent English and is learning Dutch. Her skills and her enthusiasm will undoubtedly be a great asset to the new veterinary centre.
