More about this event

About this Webinar:

In the normal reproductive cycle, koi spawning occurs in the spring, as the pond water temperature increases. Due to various factors, some older females may not expel their eggs (ova, or roe) resulting in retention of the egg mass (egg binding), and can cause compression of the abdominal organs, kidney dysfunction, osmoregulation abnormalities (edema), and egg necrosis. Treatment options include environmental manipulation, medications and surgery.


Learning Objectives:

Participants will understand: 
1. Normal koi spawning cycle; 
2. Differentials for distended coelom; 
3. Diagnostic techniques; and, 
4. Treatment options.
