Essential foot treatment for hardworking elephants
Elephants like Tin work six months of the year hauling logs through the forests of Myanmar. If an elephant’s feet aren’t kept in order, a nail can grow unevenly and crack, which in Tin’s case resulted in infection. Thankfully SPANA was there to help. Our vet gave the elephant immediate pain relief and flushed and disinfected the area. Antibiotics and daily cleaning were required over a five-day period, after which the nail was sealed with Stockholm tar. Tin was soon able to walk again without excruciating pain.
This gift will help provide elephants like Tin with regular foot care and essential veterinary treatment to protect them from suffering.
