Abscesses are prone on the feet of elephants in captivity. Veterinary staff have custom designed a system using antimicrobial sponges and soft, flexible epoxy to protect these wounds, promote healing, and increase comfort. Since its inception, these areas have dramatically improved. Each epoxy patch uses $37 of materials. We replace the patches twice weekly. A $300 gift covers a month of epoxy supplies.
