Tip from Koi expert André Ahrens on Koi wounds & injuries

Koi and other fish in the pond can also injure themselves. For example on sharp objects in the pond, injury by a cat or a heron.

If a fungus is noticed on a Koi or other fish in the pond, this is a sign for a mucous membrane injury under it. The fungal infestation in pond fish is a so-called "secondary infection". This Koi wound must be treated. So the fish has to be taken out of the pond with a landing net and then it is best to put it into a tub with approx. 20l pond water with a transfer hose. In addition a sedative should be given into this tub (Kusuri Koi Sedate).

When the fish calms down, it sleeps and turns to its side. Then you can place the Koi on a damp surface, for example a nap foil, and do the wound treatment with a cotton swab. The injury can be disinfected with our Cyprinocur Antiseptic Spray and then covered with Cyprinocur Antispray Healing Powder.
Then the Koi is put back into the pond, where it swims normally again after a short time. However, the wound should still be observed in order to repeat the treatment if necessary. If possible, place the Koi in a quarantine tank during the wound treatment (or wound healing phase) so that it does not have to be trapped again and again in the pond.
