Lady Update!

Lady update:

Her transport crate has not yet arrived, but it’s getting close. Which means Scott will be leaving soon to be there for its arrival and to get it set up at the zoo. For those who may not know about Lady’s rescue and who she is, you can go to her page and learn all about her. 

We have been doing what we can for her arrival. Someone is coming from the US with suitcases full of elephant supplies. There are some things we can get in Brazil, but more of the advanced foot care products aren’t available here. These supplies include foot protectant, cuticle treatments, meds for bacteria and fungus, fillers for her pads, and many other things.

Today we also had concrete poured for her jacuzzi foot bath- although I’m sure she will share with Rana and Ramba. We contemplated what would be best to aid in her recovery, and since the rest of her body seems ok, we decided on this. It’s designed for two feet at a time, has 12 jacuzzi jets (that go on separately and can be capped off), and a heating and aeration unit. We did not build a bigger one for all four feet because the amount of water required would dilute out any treatment or medication that will be put into her soaks. Since Lady isn’t trained for any behaviors, we thought this might be easier and faster for her to get used to. The heat and aeration will help with healing and penetration depth (the latter is a substantial issue with foot disease.)

We are going to attempt to do text updates during her rescue, so anyone who wants to sign up can go here→    Anyone who received updates during Ramba’s rescue, but doesn’t want to receive them for Lady can just text ‘STOP’ on that text thread.

That’s it for now, but updates will soon shift to rescue updates and live videos if internet plays nice. Stay tuned!!

    Jacuzzi style treatment sounds like a good idea for very poorly feet.

    This is wonderful news! Lady’s feet need the extra love and treatments. It is wonderful that someone from the US will be bringing supplies to help. GSE is a great place for healing, both physically and mentally! Does anyone know if the text updates will be sent via WhatsApp?
