Elephants like Min work six months of the year hauling teak logs through the forests of Myanmar. Long hours walking on tough ground can cause elephants’ feet to become worn down or wounded. This can quickly lead to infection in the hot and humid climate. 10-year-old Min was in so much pain he was unable to stand after his wounded foot became severely infected. Our vet gave the elephant immediate pain relief and continuously flushed the area. After running several tests, the vet identified three types of bacteria in the wound and prescribed a long course of antibiotics. After several months of treatment and daily foot baths, Min was finally back to his playful self.
