Bagging and transportation of Koi

Koi, as any other pet, will have medical problems throughout his life, especially since Koi have been known to have a shelf life of 30 years. You contact the vet because you Koi shows signs of disease or injury, and unless you have a veterinarian who performs home visits, chances are the first thing they say is "bring it."

May arise problems with your pond, if it is a gesture of emergency because your pond is placed in harms way of natural phenomena, or a planned move because of the new construction. No amount of planning can ensure that you will not have to move your Koi for one reason or another.

With the problems arising from recent events such as the Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita and events such as the common diseases, it is imperative that you have a plan of action with respect to your joy and pride. No matter whether it is an emergency, know how correctly bag and carry your Koi could mean the difference between life and death.

If you have emergencies with your Koi, you may or may not have the time to make a trip to your local pet store to collect what you need. The equipment necessary to bag and transport Koi is small and easily stored when not in use.

Bags - you must have appropriate transportation Koi bags. Do not try to carry your Koi in the garbage or regular plastic bags, as they are not designed for this and can cause damage to your Koi. Unless remember you to keep the bags you have made your home to koi initially, you need to stay at your local pet store. Make sure you get enough significant bags to hold your Koi.

Rubber bands - you need a few rubber bands for each bag you buy. Make sure that your rubber bands are good quality, that you do not want the pressure of the water to the pop music of the elastic in transport.

NET - you will need to have a large enough to compete with your Koi NET. You will never need the net to take the Koi out of the water, but you will need to carry out and directly your Koi in the place you want. Nets can potentially damage your Koi, especially as the largest they get.

Paint paint bucket - A bucket is a better option for the capture of your Koi as they can affect your Koi as a net. Make sure that your network is large enough to contain your Koi.
