How do you do operation on fish?

Fish surgery is not uncommon with many clients. Removal of skin tumours, and deflating swimbladders are the most common surgical procedure in fish.

The patient is first anaesthetised, and then removed from the water. Gills and skin are irrigated to maintain moisture, and to deliver oxygenated water and anaesthetics.

It’s done with fish out of water to preserve an aseptic surgical field.

Check out the video my client put together on surgery of their goldfish –
