PSKoi - KHV Test Results 3/30/2020

Post by Russell Peters »

We are proud to announce that our last shipment of Tosai was tested for KHV and the results are negative. We have made a pledge to set up a new quarantine building so that we can separate all of the breeders and to continue testing every single shipment that comes into our facility. This is the first time we were able to keep all breeders separate. Why is that important/ It is important for a few reasons. It reduces losses as only those Koi that test positive will be destroyed and it is the ONLY way to hold breeders accountable. If more dealers were to follow this protocol then it will apply pressure, at the source, to make changes so that this disease is controlled. Can it ever be 100%? That is hard to say but it certainly can be minimized.
Our procedure, developed by Veterinarians at the USDA, Purdue and the State of Indiana, is to heat the Koi for 30 days to 75 degrees, perform gill snips by an experienced Veterinarian at Purdue, and submit the samples for PCR testing. We will always post our results for every shipment regardless of the results. If we get a positive you will know. As long as the positive comes at our facility you will be protected and I am very happy about that.

I will get them out as soon as I can. I have 14 breeders to sort through and separate the sold Tosai from the unsold Tosai. I have done 5 breeders so far.
