Dental Bites for the Enlightened Practitioner TimeOnline

Speaker/s: Anthony Caiafa, Kayo Kuroda

Online

TimeOnline

Description

This course is designed to provide a basic understanding of the diagnosis and treatment of pet fish and will cover selected areas of care and husbandry of freshwater pond and aquarium fish. Learn how to treat and diagnose problems in pet fish and give owners advice on simple setup and maintenance of aquariums and ponds. Fish may be presented to a veterinary clinic when unwell, traumatised or for post mortem examination. Commonly, the owner is unfamiliar with handling their own fish and with normal behaviour and anatomy. The veterinarian must decide if the fish is normal, unwell or an emergency case. In order to do so, they must be familiar with normal fish anatomy and husbandry. Importantly, the veterinarian must also have a good knowledge of pond and aquarium health. Unwell fish may need further diagnostic workup to determine the cause of illness; including faecal tests, skin/gill scrapes, water quality tests, radiographs and post mortem. Once a diagnosis has been reached, appropriate treatment, medication and/or surgical procedures may be necessary.
