To address inflammation and ensure the Elephant’s overall well-being, dexamethasone Hcl was administered intravenously through the ear vein.

As the procedure concluded, the anesthesia was safely reversed through the administration of diprenorphine. This allowed the Elephant to regain consciousness and resume normal activities.
