Itchy fish and viral dermatopathies: sampling, diagnosis, and management of common viral diseases



Itchy fish and viral dermatopathies: sampling, diagnosis, and management of common viral diseases



Veterinary Clinics of North America. Exotic Animal Practice 16(3): 687-703



Viral dermatopathies of fish bear clinical signs similar to those of dermatopathies from other causes. This article offers an overview to approaching dermatologic presentations in fish, with an emphasis on sampling, diagnosis, and management of viral dermatopathies, building on previous publications. It is vital to recognize clinical signs associated with viral dermatopathies because there are currently no treatments available. Avoidance and prevention is the key to controlling viral diseases in fish. Optimizing husbandry practices and providing appropriate quarantine procedures can help prevent viral disease outbreaks in collection and aquaculture stocks.
