Attack Koi Bacterial Infections
Attacking bacterial pathogens is ONLY effective AFTER you have improved the overall conditions of the fish host. If the fish remain crowded, cold, underfed, overfed or parasitized, GIVE UP on saving the fish from bacterial infection. If you have improved the temperature, reduced crowding, and in every other way attended the twenty steps to fish health, this step will work well. To combat bacterial infections you should get an antibiotic INTO the fish. It is usually insufficient to put antibiotics ON a fish. I recommend dressing the fishes' wounds if possible with an antibiotic ointment called Panalog are very effective. Simultaneously, feeding medicated food such as MediKoi is effective. And finally, dipping or spraying the fish in Ulcer Aid Rx cinches success unless the fish is too far gone. If you are an advanced hobbyist you might also consider injection of antibiotics.
