Description

Many commonly used veterinary anesthetics for small animals can be also used with pet fish. Treating tropical aquarium fish is not as hard as one might think, and tranquilizing them prior to handling them for physical examinations and diagnostic tests makes the process easier. A number of surgical procedures have been performed on fish, especially large species such as koi or fish on display in a public aquarium. Anesthetizing the fish prior to surgical procedures is essential. Euthanasia of aquarium fish is sometimes necessary, and using an overdose of anesthetic agents can make this process quick and painless. Anesthetic agents can be added to the water, given orally, or injected into fish. This program reviews the drugs, dosages and routes of administration used in aquatic veterinary medicine.
