The elephants all get a check-up when Vesswic are in town. This is how the dosage of medication is worked out by directing the elephants onto the large scales to measure their weight and from there the correct amount of de-wormers are provided. Poor Nelson also has a few tears running due to a bacterial infection in his eyes. He was given a program of daily medication for the infection. Hopefully the next time we see him he’ll be well on the mend.
