    fish has large injure with infection need antibiotic.

    Hello everyone,
    I like to give one of my koi an antibiotic shot to help with the infection from the inujured to the tail area. When can I get the medication for the injection ? Will the vet sell it to me ?
    Thank you,
    Alex.

    I go to my vet and he sells me baytril, it worked very good!!!!! Sometimes you may have to take pics with you to the vet or bring the fish in.

    Hey, thanks guy for replying back so quick.
    Dinh,
    I live in Michigan, around the Grand Rapids/Wayland area. There is a vet a block away from my house but I don't know if they will sell it to me or ask me to bring the fish in and charge $200.00 for each visit.

    I am in SF Bay Area, the reason I asked to see if you are local here then I can help or any members of our NorCal club here can help you out.

    You can also check out with local koi members, they normally have some med. There are some "BIG SHOT" koi people in Michigan. j/k ;-))

    Another suggestion is to join a local koi club. There are many good reasons to join a local koi club.

    Well, I stop by three vet and end up with no med. All of them turn me down since I am not a client. I mean, I want to buy the med not asking for any hand out.

    I don't know if there is any local club that I can get what I need in time. I will try my best to help the fish for now.

    Thanks guy for all the valuable suggestion.

    Alex.

    MKPC is who can maybe help you where you live.


    I don't see a Vet giving or selling a total stranger Injectable Antibiotics.

    headache6,
    I see your point about selling it to a stranger, but this is an antibiotic for animal right ? .

    I will check the MKPC out and see what they have to offer.

    Alex, I've taken my Dog to the same Vet for years, they won't sell me Antibiotics. It's not worth the risk to them.

    Good Luck
