Wellness Wednesday: Elephant

A critical component to wellness is preventative care. Our elephant team participates in many aspects of preventative care with each member of the herd. Our elephants participate in these wellness training sessions voluntarily, and are free to leave at any time. Some of the activities that our herd practices are voluntary blood draws, foot exams, mouth exams, trunk washes, and taking practice medicine!
