We’ve all had incredibly bad days at work and that’s a fact, it’s just bound to happen. But something tells me none of us have had a day as bad as this Thai vet’s who, when treating the cᴏɴsᴛɪᴘᴀᴛed elephant, got a ᴘᴏᴏ shower while staring at the animal’s behind.
With a significant case of blockage, the incredibly big animal was suffering, and this can turn out to be ғᴀᴛᴀʟ if left untreated.
Dr. Tom and two of his helpers had to go to the Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand on call because there was no one else who could’ve treated the poor animal.
So the veterinarian Dr. Tom came to help out the poor animal. However, the floodgates opened after he managed to scrape a large portion of the ᴘᴏᴏ that got stuck in the animal’s ᴀɴᴜs and was causing the block. He ended up struck in the face by a yellowish ᴘᴏᴏ.
During the exercise, the team was wearing waterproof ponchos, but at the point when the ᴅᴜɴɢ finally came out, they were of little to no use at all – since the ᴘᴏᴏ was accompanied by a stream of brownish water.
As per the report of Jam Press, this particularly unique video has received over 45,000 views on Instagram.
Although the messy sight disgusted some, many other people actually thanked the doctor for saving the elephant.
But the most important thing is that Dr. Tom successfully relieved poor Lana, despite the horrible sight. The Samui Elephant Sanctuary partnered up with Nature Park said that Lana had suffered from extreme cᴏɴsᴛɪᴘᴀᴛion but was feeling much better after her treatment.
Commenting on the video, one person said: “Oh wow, that’s a rough day at work… but so important. the relief that team brought to the elephant truly was life-saving.”
“Oh wow hahaha it’s so funny but so amazing what you have done to help this beautiful elephant! Well done!” praised another.
While a third chimed in with: “Love that dedication, doctor!!”
