Human beings have so many kinds of wound dressing, but it’s unlikely an injured fish can ever wear a Band-Aid quite like humans.
Dr Richmond Loh at TheFishVet has pioneered using a special powder, that when applied to fish skin, will stick to it, forming a gel-like material that can be used as a “smart fish band-aid”.
The PowerGel fish bandage matrix has numerous advantages. It can be applied to any area of the body, including delicate structures like fins; is able to absorb any aqueous liquid, allowing the gel to be impregnated with a variety of medicines like antibiotics, allowing direct localised activity for sustained release over time.
“I’ve been using it clinically for the last 10+ years. It’s worked on freshwater and marine turtles, freshwater and marine teleosts, amphibians and crabs. I’ve only two cases where it’s not stuck (Wobbegong shark skin ulcer, and dolphin mouth ulcer)… I’ve since got veterinarians around the world who work at zoos and aquariums, using it. They think it’s amazing stuff!” says Dr Loh.
The PowerGel Fish Bandage would prove an excellent solution for things like the treatment of skin ulcers, burns, post-incision wound care, finrot and other external skin conditions.
It’s A MUST-HAVE for every fish emergency kit.
