Thread: Otter damage

  1. #1

    Otter damage

    Iíve recently been wiped out by an otter,Ive now only got 3 fish left and they have taken quite a beating unfortunately,Iíve got them in a holding tank/vat to enable me to treat them and whilst I complete a steel cover over the pond
    When it first happened I treat the individual wounds as best I could with carp care/propolis style products,is there anything beneficial I can add to the vat to help speed up/improve healing?
    I donít really want to keep netting/handling them to treat with ointment style products for obvious reasons

    Sorry to hear that Dan so stressful mate.

    There is something you can put in the water but I cant remember its name, not much help i know.
    Maybe some salt would help them as they must be stressed.

    An absolute nightmare mate to be honest!

    I have added some salt in a very low dosage,I didnít really want to use it too much in case it was a bit of an irritant to the wounds!

    Really feel for you Dan mate and you have done well to get them out of the pond.
    Have you any pics of the wounds to see how bad they are?
    Sure someone more knowledgeable can help you.
    John
