Hello, does anyone offer a service to treat one of my Koi? Im in Shipley, West Yorkshire. One of my koi has develope a problem with its lips. They looks very inflamed. The fish stays at the bottom of the pond and has become very slow in its movements. I need someone who can come and treat it topically and maybe give it some anti-biotics. I am happy to pay for this service but I dont know anyone. My number is 07811 079 199 if anyone can help me. Thanks, Paul.

Hope you got sorted but if you fancy doing it yourself Duncan Griffiths sells stuff to anaethatise the fish and a topical treatment specially for the mouth and head area can't remember name of it think it was mfr 1 it's good stuff a long time since I used it but I had a fish with a knock on its upper lip cleaned it with kusuri wound cleaner and applied this worked for me

Thanks Dave - we ended up doing it ourselves using the Kusuri topical treatment. I've taken the fish out of the pond and have it in a tank in isolation so that I can keep an eye on it till it makes a full recovery, thanks.
