Koi with Large Ulcer

In this video clip we have a Koi with a large ulcer on its right side, on the belly. The damage caused to the Koi is extensive, the ulcer has made its way to the underlying muscle tissue. Ulcers in this location are often difficult to detect early on, since you rarely see a Koi's belly. Treatment involves antibiotic injections or Tricide-Neo dip. Properly cared for, even a Koi with an ulcer this large can still pull through.
