Non-USA boardies - need your help

8 posts in this topic

Hi Kokonuts! It has come to my attention over the course of treatment advice on here that we have extreme difficulty recommending medications for other countries. I'd like to begin rectifying this and formatting a conglomeration of posts indicating what is available in a given country that you have used and had success with. Links to the product or a list of active ingredients would help.

Please fill out this form and we can begin making a better and updated compendium of available treatments.

- Country of origin:

- Medication label name/trade name:

- Active ingredients:

- What condition did you successfully treat?:

- Medication label name/trade name:

- Active ingredients:

- What condition did you successfully treat?:

- Medication label name/trade name:

- Active ingredients:

- What condition did you successfully treat?:

- Medication label name/trade name:

- Active ingredients:

- What condition did you successfully treat?:

Please copy and paste the form into the body of your post as many times as needed - I'd love to keep this list as straightforward and chatter free as possible so the D&D team can find and skim it quickly. Thanks for all your help, friends! May we save many fish all over the globe :)

I know chatter free... But, I think (as someone outside the USA) this a brilliant idea, and I absolutely will fill this out, but I'd like to wait until Frank has been off antibiotics for a little while without a relapse before I advocate it as a successful treatment. Fingers crossed!

Generally speaking you are not allowed to sell antibiotika in Europe for fish. You need a doctor to proscribe it.

There are stricter rules for aquarium fish than ponds, so often you will be able to find something similar medication for ponds.

I believe we have some lists in the back somewhere...I have a hard copy, too.  But, they are a little dated.
