Elephant

Update on Elephant Bull with broken leg.

Dr. Johan recently went to check up on Mr. F, a magnificent African Elephant we have been treating on a reserve in South Africa.  

We first treated Mr. F after he fell in a ditch in the bush and broke his leg back in 2018. 

The gentle giant was struggling to walk properly, so a cast was applied to the broken leg. Healing has been slow due to the massive weight of the patient and the fact that we cannot stop him putting weight on the limb. 

But with perseverance from the reserve staff, the local Veterinarian and STS, we are happy to report that he is doing very well! His injured leg appears to be healed and not effecting Mr. F leading a normal life.
