Elephant Retirement Park (Chiang Mai, Thailand)

Daily Care of Our Elephants at Elephant Retirement park

Routine veterinary checks – An ounce of prevention is worth, well, several tons of cure! To keep track of our elephants’ overall health, we collect and analyze blood and urine samples. We also collect blood samples on a weekly basis to monitor hormone levels which helps with breeding efforts.

Foot care – It might not be a spa pedicure, but it’s close! Every day our keepers inspect the elephants’ nails, cuticles, and padsto make sure they’re in excellent shape.

Weigh-in – Talk about tipping the scales! Every day we weigh our elephants to monitor their overall health and growth rates, and also to track pre-natal weight gain on the pregnant cows.

Exercise – They might not do yoga, but our elephants get plenty of exercise. Outside, they have the opportunity to run around, swim, even play in a waterfall. Indoors, they get the chance to exercise when they do things like play with “toys” and take baths.
