Koi Health and disease, Erik L Johnson

This soft cover ring-bound book is very hard to come by if you don't live in the USA. Only the cover is printed in colour and when you receive the book, it seems very plain and unassuming.

Once you have it though, it is worth its weight in gold.


There are no bells and whistles to the book, just plain value. The copy I have is in serious need of repair from all the handling. One gets many books on koi disease and I catch myself frequently comparing the quality of the information and the treatments obtained from such books with Koi Health and Disease. There is no comparison!  

All aspects of fish disease are covered and the practical treatments are described in such a plain explanatory way that any koi keeper can gain knowledge and experience through this excellent book. The information contained in this book is derived from day to day experiences of Dr Johnson and koi keepers are introduced to these cases with practical treatments that can be practised at home.  

Dr Johnson is a pioneer in the koi health industry and has done considerable research and experiments to the benefit of the koi hobbyist worldwide. As I have mentioned, the book is difficult to obtain but can be ordered through www.koivet.com It is worth the effort!  

If I must choose only two books in my collection to keep, Koi Health and Disease will surely be one.
