  • Its part of koi care.

    Koi, like most animals, can develop tumors. Our chagoi had one growing from under the operculum (gill plate). So today I knocked her out with a gracious plenty of oil of cloves, excised the tumor with a scalpel, cauterized with a swab with PP (had to be careful not to burn lamella), applied biobandage, gave her 1 cc Baytril 100 as a prophylactic, and brought her to consciousness. With luck she will be much better in the morning.

    The joys of koi keeping never cease.

    Koi keeping is not a belief system; it is applied science with a touch of artistry.

    Kudos to you for undertaking to do this ..And, for the successful operation. Please update on her progress.

    I admire those who make the effort to save a fish. I have never attempted any sort of surgery on a koi. I can't remove a splinter from my own finger without gouging myself.

      She is swimming and eating with the rest. I just got some JPD food from Carl this weekend. I have mixed the Shori high protein with the Fujizakura health food and started everyone on that mixture. So far so good.
