Unfortunately, there is great concern surrounding Rosa the elephant at the moment. Rosa has been on treatment for the last two years for the pain that she has been suffering from inoperable problems with her vagina and urinary tract. Unfortunately, this pain relief is no longer proving effective and we are awaiting a decision from our veterinary consultants as to the best course of action.
