Thread: Koi fish wound

    Koi fish wound

    Hello,
    I have a question regarding the koi. On Saturday, when catching fish from the pond, I noticed one fish a centimeter wound on the skin. A wound is not a cut, it is a deep wound. I have a question if it is possible to cure this fish. If so by what means? Thank you in advance for your answer

    treatment's etc they shouldn't be long, probably having a kip or something.....

    Doesn't look too nasty,I would sedate then antibac and seal,a little heat with a little salt would help.
    Not too good to be kept in ambient temps,hope it helps.
    Any more questions just ask Mario.

    One thing you must ask yourself is what caused it,a scrape would help to see if any parasites.
    John

    Well said john.
    I would treat as john has said. And put in a qt with heat and salt. Heat at 25c with 0.3 salt for about 5 days. The up the salt to 0.6
    Salt. I have had a few with ulcers. And this worked for me. Takes about 2 weeks for the first layers of new skin to grow over.
    With what is said above. When the first skin grows over. I start reducing the salt down
    Hope this helps
