Monkey seeks medical help

Suffering from acute purging and nausea, the monkey surprised the staff of the vet hospital on Wednesday, by entering the premises and lying down on the examination table.

Hospital staff V Ranganathappa recalled that the monkey had been to the hospital a fortnight ago with similar symptoms and had been treated for acute dehydration caused by excessive purging.

After it got better due to the treatment, the monkey had returned to a tree that is its abode. Apparently, the illness relapsed, and the monkey was back in the hospital, much like humans., says Dr G M Nagaraj.

The doctor says the monkey is extremely listless and is consuming only juices.

“We are administering glucose and medication, and will provide it with all medical care,” says the doctor.
