We get many questions from pet fish owners asking about how they should go about trimming their goldfish’s wen. Our answer: DON’T! This may look like a “simple” procedure, but without proper preparation and procedure, you could seriously injure your fish.

All surgical procedures should only be performed by a licensed and trained veterinarian. All procedures MUST be performed under anesthesia. NEVER attempt to perform surgery on your fish yourself. (And if you ignore us and do, don’t call us mid-procedure for tips.)
