And these units will allow us to also wash items like Winkie’s blanket, hand towels, etc. at each barn rather than at the central unit all barns are currently sharing at the Darbytown office. Yes, they are expensive but if is helps make the job a little easier for our hardworking Caregiver staff – it’s worth it!

That is why all of our elephants receive Cosequin daily. Recent studies indicate that joint deterioration, as well as the accompanied debilitating pain and inflammation, can be prevented if addressed early. By supplementing the elephants with Cosequin before they show signs of a problem we can help to increase their chances of not developing the condition. As the elephants age, their risk of joint inflammation and deterioration increases. By providing Cosequin now, their joints have a better chance of staying healthy. This preventive measure just might stop the onset of the crippling inflammation and joint deterioration that plagues so many elephants kept in captivity.
