Veterinarian Dr Erik Johnson (koivet) illustrates and explains his housecall kit. From the space saving microscope to the kinds of test kits brought to bear. Everything fits into a Pelican 1500 box.
The page will be presented live in March, 2020 in North Carolina to a group of hobbyists, vets and retailers along with a Wet Lab and a seminar on "What Really Matters" in Water Quality.
Here's the Pond Call Kit
Without taking too much of your time, let me show you some new resources, which are of benefit to Dog, Cat, Koi and Pondfish Lovers.
I did a page and a video on dental cleaning in dogs and WHY – it's not just cosmetic in fact that's secondary: It's actually the comfort of the dog to eliminate / control dental disease with recession of the gum line and exposure of roots. Also, and MOST importantly, the elimination of bacteria going from the very capillary-rich gums into the airway, and bloodstream.
I also did a video and page on a Way to control and eliminate bad breath in dogs SIMPLY by addition of a product called Oxyfresh to the dog's water. It's a perishable disinfectant that the dog can safely drink, and then it's inactivated by the HCl (stomach acid) — so there's no disinfection of the "good Bacteria" in the gut. That's here.
A video you might also like is about Koi and Pond Fish Ulcer Disease. This link takes you to a three video series which covers the causes, and management of Koi Ulcer Disease / Body Sores and Finrot. It's a Springtime disorder for the most part. You will learn a LOT from the video.
Lastly for this resource announcement is a way of supporting pH in your pond or aquarium. It makes "PH Crash" a thing of the past. The video talks about a PILL made of Plaster of Paris. The video shows you HOW to make the pills, WHY to make them, WHEN to use them, WHEN NOT to use them, HOW they work, HOW LONG they usually last, and a LOT more. That's why the "pH PIll" videos are a series of three starting with the link I put in this paragraph.
I hope you like these items.
How To Support pH in Aquatic Systems like ponds and aquaria with more convenience and even better residual safety.
There are two videos on Youtube done by Dr. Erik Johnson regarding a way to make a pH Buffer into a pill form, that slowly dissolves to support pH and prevent pH Crash. A real thing.
It's as easy as making pills of Plaster of Paris but then again, it's NOT that simple. You need the right Plaster and you need to make sure they are VERY dry before you use them.
- What fish should NOT be exposed to PH Pills?
- Where should you put the pH Pills?
- How long do they last and what impacts that?
- What do you make these in and how does the oven factor in their production?
My second marriage was driven by an issue of hardship for the mother.
She had lost her husband to prison, and suddenly had inadequate income to support their four kids.
So before her husband had even been sentenced, she was on EHarmony and picked me out. She researched my veterinary license and checked me out on social media to make sure that I was a strong earner, and basically a good person, and reached out. She used her counseling skills to assess my needs, and provided those. I’m a “fixer” and I was needed, and made to feel that way.
I adopted the kids within months at the request of their family, to protect them from their father who was in prison for abuse of those kids. But that was my undoing.
She and her kids were emotionally and financially supported for four and a half years. When she no longer needed me because her new business had become profitable (I paid her car note, cell phone, insurance and 100% of her needs while her new business startup was in the red), I was ejected from the family in a extremely hostile divorce complaint, a result of which is I am saddled with providing $200,000 in alimony, health insurance coverage and child support for seven years. We were only married for 4 1/2 years and not a drop of my blood flows in their veins. I am paying child support for kids that aren't even of my making, and I've only known for 4.5 years. Even her parents turned on me as a financial target (and bankrolled her divorce proceedings). Ironically, my Alimony reimburses her for the entire expense. (“And then some”).
The adoption had been intended to protect the kids from their actual father, but it turned out to be nefariously intended for their mother’s financial portfolio as well.
I have to live with the fact that I was just a pragmatic solution, a necessary “utensil”. Obviously not particularly wanted, loved, respected or valued.
Or at least not valued for anything that couldn’t be replaced by the letter of the law in a divorce proceeding, than would be provided in a marriage. Namely, a male presence and emotional availability. The message was clear: “That will be all, my drone, you may go now, but your money stays.”
Less than 60 days after filing for divorce, she was back on E harmony chatting with doctors; (including myself under the pseudonym of a Canton radiologist of the appropriate age and income level).
When I realized that I was just a tool, it annihilated my trust and belief in that family. I had never encountered anything so reptilian.
On sad reflection, I believe that besides myself, the most significant victims are the children. Besides a few years of marriage, I have no significant ties to the adults/history/culture of that family. Besides my longterm financial tether, I can completely exit the blast radius of that kind of calculating, Machiavellian world-view. The kids were born into it, and may have difficulty avoiding some of the behaviors they may internalize as ‘normal’.
My hope is that some day I will be regarded accurately as the gullible ‘patsy’ that bought their freedom from mandatory visitation with their biological father and who paid their way until they were 18.

I don't think Koi and Goldfish viruses could be covered better than the following documents. These are things I found online visiting some sites while I got my USDA/accreditation. They open as flip books. You have to have Flash but they open plain, Flash, regular and mobile. Pretty neat.
The viruses covered include Spring viremia, the Herpes Viruses. Koi and Goldfish both get Herpes Viruses.
The BEST one of all is something you haven't seen unless you went for your Veterinary Accreditation for USDA and took the module – – Emerging Viruses of Koi and Goldfish.
Also a link or two to some recent videos I released lately.
I'll explain how cannabis (THC) tetrahydrocannabinol kills cancer cells. It's amazing. It doesn't work on slow-dividing cells, but works quite well on the softer, smaller and more rapidly growing cancers. Especially in areas where surgery is poorly considered. As an adjunct to ANY cancer therapy, consider the positive effects on appetite, nausea, cancer cell survival times, and pain relief as well as reduction in anxiety.
I should talk with Dr Phil about this, huh?
Dear Ex Wife from E-Harmony:
We were married only four and a half years, but I have seven more years of child support to pay you and not a single drop of my blood is in any of your kids' veins.
When I met you, and your four kids, the stated intent of their adoption was to protect them from their father, (your ex-husband), Mr. Jessie Williams. A strategy requested by you, your parents, endorsed by me, and everyone else who knew about it. They were "Karri and Jessie's kids", and I'd known them only a few months, but I was willing to sign that piece of paper to protect them from being HIS kids on his release from prison. And we all understood that. But it was a set up. And only a few years later it was twisted and abused as hard as your dad, you, and your lawyers could dream up. Nine months of twisting that dagger in my back to settle your suit for divorce. And then making me pay for your attorneys / alimony on top of seven years of child support and health insurance.
I was there for you and the kids, through thick and thin. Doctor’s appointments, trinkets, from trampolines to trumpets, your surgeries, paid for and took you to your meetings with Brian Smith, cruises, I paid for kids cars, lived at hospitals, paid everyone's health insurance, paid for, opened and supported your businesses, all manner of financial bail outs, picked you up off the floor over and over and over and over and over… and over and over….. and over and over…. I was deeply scarred by the experiences we shared through a harrowing time in your life. You and your four kids were expensive to support until your business took off; but as soon as your receivables showed positive cash flow to contribute to the family budget, you left. And you turned on me like a vicious, stone-cold sociopath.
I'll be paying you roughly a hundred dollars every *DAY* until 2023, as my repayment for adopting your kids, at your request, to allow to prevent you having to share them with your ex husband Jessie Williams. So not only did you secure your kids' protection from one man, you got them paid for by another.
No experience of karma in our lives will ever equal the betrayal and abuse of the good intentions of what (and who) the adoption was really for.

Help For Sick Fish Koi & Pond Fish Disease Season 2018 Intro
"My Fish Is Sick, What Should I Do?" is the cry of the season, and it's all going back to water quality. I got off the phone with a person who assured me the situation with his pond was bacterial and not water quality. I said "To help you ANY more, I will require n actual number for the pH Ammonia and Nitrite. And an actual number for temperature, not "They're all good"
He emailed back: "My pH has crashed. You were right. It's 6.2" And so the bacterial lesions he was seeing were actually the least of his worries and probably caused by the deteriorated water. So there's that.
