Information For Veterinarians

My main aim is to help pool the knowledge that aquarists, aquaculturists, public aquaria, local fish shops and other fellow fish veterinarians already have, and to filter out misinformation and then provide this information to general veterinary practitioners through conferences and workshops, and through the Unusual & Exotic Pets SIG of the AVA.

Visit this site regularly for more useful information catered specially for veterinarians (please note that these fact sheets are in pdf format). To learn more about fish vetting, join my e-mail list for fishy tips & updates. E-mail me your details (full name, qualifications, university, clinic name, phone and fax.

***This is the first in Australia. My fellow fish veterinary colleagues have gotten together to specially source and hand select products for a fish kit. It takes the hassle away from trying to figure out what needs to be incorporated into a fish kit. It is designed to be a stand alone complete and fully functional diagnostic kit. Ready to use as soon as it arrives and comes in a smart tough durable case.***

** Fish Kits can now be purchased from the Online Store.

Dr Richmond Loh is a fish veterinarian, diagnosing fish diseases and provides fish medicine. The Fish Vet has a mobile veterinary clinic and makes home visits to see your fish in their aquarium, pond, tank or dam. So whether you are a fish keeper, fish hobbyist, fish farmer, aquaculturist, ornamental fish retailer, fish wholesaler, fish exporter or a public aquarium or zoo, The Fish Vet can see you. Some of Dr Loh's patients include Siamese fighting fish, guppies, goldfish, koi carp, cichlid (such as oscars, discus, angel fish and Malawi cichlids), marine fishes (such as clown fish, seahorses, sharks, rays), or large fishes such as murray cod, giant gourami and saratoga (the Aussie version of arowana or dragon fish). Dr Loh does water testing (looking at pH, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, carbonate hardness, general hardness, water temperature, etc.), utilises a microscope to examine your fish's ailments and has access to laboratory testing. Dr Loh has a mobile fish pharmacy, and carries all the medications (e.g. metronidazole or Flagyl, antibiotics such as enrofloxacin or Baytril, praziquantel or fish wormer, fish anaesthetics) that can be dispensed immediately to treat your fish. He has all the fish dose rates and can give in-water medication or injections. Otherwise, veterinary prescriptions can be written if the drug is not in stock.
