Sorry, it’s not a cute elephant photo, but we wanted to show the almost immediate changes in Lady’s feet. This was what we mentioned in the post yesterday. At this point, we aren’t able to work on nail or pad trimming, Lady will require a lot of positive reinforcement training for that. Her nails are still in rough shape, but there is a noted decrease in swelling of her front right foot/ankle area. The reduction in swelling and pressure will definitely take the edge off of the pain she was having in that limb.
We joke that sanctuary isn’t rocket science, that nature does a lot of the work for us. Although we are treating Lady’s feet, increased walking, which increases blood flow, and Lady using her feet for digging up dirt and grass all aid in healing.
The ladies are doing well today, and we will post again later. Maia came back by the barn this morning, and she and Lady are sharing a common fence line. Neither is actively trying to interact with the other, but they definitely see each other. They’re both casually grazing in the drizzle. Rana and Ramba are closer to the pond this morning. It seems that Ramba won the battle to wander a bit further.
