Num choke’s trouble with her feet
Num Choke, the elephant that was rescued in February 2013, has cracked feet and nails as foot care was likely neglected for a few years. Vets at WFFT trimmed and debrided her feet under sedation yesterday.
We are now going to constuct a few shallow, concrete foot baths for elephants that will be ideal for this and future foot problems. Elephant Walks through the foot bath and stands in antiseptic for a few minutes a day will surely be a great tool to trat wounds and prevent new infections.
