Treating Infected Scales

In this video, which was produced in Germany, we have a Koi that has an infection under some scales. It is a Doitsu Aka Matsuba. The fish is caught and put in a tub. Some anesthetic is added to the tub to cal the fish down. The infected scales are removed and the the wound is debrided with Iodine. The Koi is then put back in a tub with well oxygenated pond water to wake him back up from the affects of the anesthesia. It is then placed back in the pond and rocked back and forth to further help to wake him up. Hopefully, it will make a full recovery.
