Looking for help for your diseased fish?
Try your local veterinary clinic or hospital. Otherwise, try googling "fish+vet".
If you still can’t find one, hobbyists can contact the local koi/fish clubs for a list of registered veterinarians they might work with.
For fish farmers, contact your industry representatives to locate a qualified fish veterinarian.
Please be aware that, for legal reasons, veterinarians are prohibited from diagnosing a disease or recommending treatment without a valid veterinarian-client-patient relationship. We therefore recommend you find a veterinarian willing to accept clients, or who can visit your place to correctly assess your situation.

If your local veterinarian is unfamiliar with fish, or would like assistance on a clinical case, please ask them to contact us.
Remember, only a registered veterinarian has the license to practice veterinary medicine. Unless they’re a registered veterinarian, they are legally not allowed to consult (e.g. make a diagnosis, medicate, or prescribe treatments) whether they collect monies or not.
