His leg is almost back to normal, but the joint is still stiff and he favors that leg. His hind quarters are still weak, and muscle atrophy clear due to lack of exercise for years. That will change with time. We will need take or a walk and bring him to the pool for his leg and body exercise. The swelling is significantly reduced. We’re so pleased with our medical team.
His energy levels are good. He eats well and he has gained some weights. He had been sleeping at at the mud pits. Now he sleeps in the shelter on the sand piles. He loves to take a walk around his new home. We don’t need any tools to control him at all. Just food and he will follow. He’s really cute!
He is isolated in a large and still show no interest in any other elephants, which is good. Due to his EEHV condition, he needs to avoid contact with other elephants. But all in all, he is doing great ! We are so proud of him.
As a young elephant, he has been through a lot. We will ensure that he both physically and mentally healed.
