Enrichment for Captive Species

It is important to recognize that in addition to providing for the basic needs of the pets (shelter, food, water) pet owners need to ensure that these animals are able to freely express the natural behaviors inherent to the species.

Partial Wen Resection

Partial Wen Resection surgery on a one year old Oranda goldfish. The purpose of the surgery was to restore the vision that was obscured by the overgrowth of the wen tissue over both eyes. The owner reported lethargy and decreased ability to locate food. The fish was anesthetized using Finquil buffered with sodium bicarb in a water bath. The surgery was a great success and recovery smooth!
