Pet Questions? Ask a Vet and Get Answers ASAP
I am having trouble attaching the picture .... Please bear with me while I find out what the problem is.
Hello ... Let's see if this works ....
Hello ... Were you able to see the picture?
The fish seems to be acting normal ...
Thank you ... I guess it's a bit of good news.
Just before contacting you we went to the fish store and got some amoxocollin - Aquafish brand - and we added 9 capsules to the water.
We also replaced about 30% of the water supply.
Would the Amoxocillin be good therapy?
Is this lession still herpes related? It means the other babies in the tank are also infected, right?
I've heard of something called "hole in the head" ... Have you heard of this?
Doctor, again, thanks for your help.
Thank you so much Doctor.
I suppose I can get the Melafix, Koizyme and kanamycin/doxycycline at my pet store?
I will have the instructions for the dosage, right?
Again Doctor, you have been great !!!!!
Just respond to this so that I can do the rating ....
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX thank you,
Have new issue with the fish in question.
A black area is now showing in the place where the white part is.
I would love to send you a picture, if you give me a site to send it to.
Here's the link to the two new pictures. Please look at the ones with today's date in the title.
Hello and thanks for the answer.
First off, should I start a new thread, for payment purposes? Now that you have the history, this seems to be the correct thing to do.
I will also try to download a better picture, but the lesion seems to be inside the previous one. It is smooth and a bit raised.
We just changed about 30% of the water. The nitrate is around 5-10, in the safe zone. The nitrite is about .5, in the "caution zone". Water is hard, but this has always been our case. It's about 125-150. Alkalinity and Ph are both normal.
Just noticed the lesion today. Just added Maracyn (Erythromycin) this morning.
Just uploaded two new pictures. In answer to your other questions, he's acting quite normal. Eats healthy, swims with others as usual. No changes in behavior.
Just started a new chain.
Unfortunately I cannot check the ammonia with my testing kit, but can take a water sample to my local pet store for checking.
The old lesion, which looked like white scar tissue, seems to now be filling with the new black matter and that appears to be under a very thin layer of skin?
