While it may sound strange, recent news reports claim Goody, a giraffe at the Sacramento Zoo, is wearing a shoe due to chronic joint abnormalities that contribute to the giraffe’s arthritis. Visitors to the zoo have of course taken notice of the bold blue shoe that Goody’s wearing!
Goody has been receiving acupuncture, laser therapy, medications, pulse electromagnetic therapy mat time, and other treatment for her discomfort, and has been outfitted with a custom designed shoe which naturally attracts substantial attention from those who go to the zoo. Reports say Goody is wearing a boot complete with custom insole and metal plate that work to correct the rotation of her foot and help to align her joints.
Because of her new shoe, Goody has become a more social animal and enjoys the outdoors more; according to the zoo, she foregoes staying in the barn for a long nap every day to go outside with the herd. She’s getting exercise, and opting to socialize with friends rather than staying isolated. Somewhat humorously, news reports indicate that Goody’s friends have fully accepted her “fashion statement.”
It’s always good when shoes are a fashion statement, however in some instances a certain type of shoe can be beneficial.
