Aquatic Veterinary Medicine

Dr Bousquet will start with an explanation of the new federal “Responsible Use of Medically Important Antimicrobials” legislation, why it was needed, what it means about accessing antibiotics for pet fish, and what a veterinarian needs to be able to dispense antibiotics for fish. She will discuss the role of the fish vet, what they can do, etc. Finally, she will go over general tips to avoid some of the common issues we see in fish practice and if time permits a question and answer.
