    Thanks,

    Mitch, I was able to get my hands on some Fortez (sp) which is in the same family as Azactam (which I love). I had my entire med chest with me, but the suggestion from someone I admire and trust was to use this instead. I'm hearing that Azactam may not be available anymore and that this "new and improved" antibiotic is to replace it. I've frozen what I had left so it won't go to waste. There was no need to continue with injections once she was in good water. I would have continued if her tail fin hadn't started to heal on its own though. We gave her a 1.5cc dose.

    That had to make you more than a little bit nervous. I'm glad to hear she is doing well.

    Thanks Sue,
    I'll try and remember that name. I noticed from the pictures that the injection site was in the pit under the pectoral fin, which also happens to be where Vicki showed us in the wet lab. I guess that is becoming the best place to inject now. If it's good enough for the GC it's good enough for my fish.

    Actually Mitch

    The injection site on Sue's GC was in the soft tissue behind the pelvic fins...unless "someones" aim was off! I have seen koi injected in a number of different places over the years. I find the area mentioned to be the best, especially for a show fish since it poses very little threat of messing things up or knocking off a critical scale.

    Oops,
    I stand corrected. I didn't go back and look at the picture before I posted. Actually Vicki said you could inject in the soft pocket under either the pectoral or the pelvics. In the wet lab "we" used the former. Do you see any problem with using the pectoral area?
    Thanks,
    Mitch
