Have you ever heard of this dropsy treatment method?

Taking a syringe and draining the excess fluids from a betta's abdomen?

Long story short, I heard of it and found a syringe in the basement (my mom is a doctor sooo) and I kept it in my room just in case. WELL now my parents think I do drugs :(

so just wondering if you have ever heard of it cuz I wanna no if my parents will believe me. If they google it do you think they will find it?

Yes I head of it, but it's very uncommon

I never have, but that doesn't mean anything.

I suggest doing the research and showing it to your parents. I personally wouldn't mess around with it. Too much could go horribly wrong imo without a very good understanding of the innards of a betta and having a working knowledge of having dissected one completely...

Whatever you decide to do though GL


.....Betta Fish are like potato chips, it's hard to have just one!
Arm yourself with knowledge. Consider advise. Make informed decisions.

Lol thanks :) btw dropsy is a death sentence itself and a mistake would just end the suffering. I would obv do it under clove oil anyway so If I did something that would make it wouse I would just euthanize like I would. The draining is just a fighting chance really.
