It's finally happened

Today, I had to euthanise one of the fish in my tank...it suddenly got all bloaty like a pinecone and I didn't want the disease spreading to the other fish.

When I was watching it flip its last flop, I suddenly realised that it was harder watching a fish die than watching one of my patients die.

This means that I've finally turned into one of them. One of those stone-hearted, cold-blooded cynical doctors that I promised myself I would never become.

I'm a sick, sick person.

Next time - put the fish in a baggie (no water) and throw it in the freezer (resist urge to look) and forget about it for several hours...you'll feel better and some people believe this to be the most humane method of disposal. Here in Alaska we just throw the fish into the snow bank.

Dropsy is brutal. you feel so damned bad for the poor thing, but i've never had a treatment work. internal infections of fishies are hard to fix. i feel lucky that it's been a long time since i've had one die of anything but age-related illness. leah is right, though, about the best way to do it if you can't stand to watch them swim anymore, or don't have a quarantine tank. they just fall asleep, then freeze.
