The answer to the question is YES. The reason you should get the second book is because your first edition is probably rather worn by now. Plus, WE DROPPED about 70 pages of dated information from the first edition and replaced it with 90+ new pages of edited, revised and updated information. The book is now 204 pages long!
And, while it's thicker than ever, it's the same price as the first edition was even ten years ago! Isn't digital publishing great! "Koi Health & Disease 2nd Edition" is $39 per copy. ($35 per copy on Amazon!)
There is a free tour of the book with preview pages (alot of them) on Amazon.com where the nice thing about Amazon is that you can get this book OVERNIGHT like never before.
We REDUCED the font size, and improved the page layout to fit in MORE information but it STILL ran about sixty pages more than the old book.
New information: Almost everything was massaged, revised for accuracy, and we added notes of interest from the field garnered from the last ten years of practice of fish health. So everything's updated, and we added expanded information on:
Nutrition, handling, laboratory techniques, bacterial infections, Koi Herpes Virus, SVC, Tricide Neo potentiated anti bacterial dip, Praziquantel in its current usage, pond predators and much, much more.
We also added improved images. We went back to the source code on some of the original images and retouched them then we put them to digital publishing on high resolution printers and paper.
By the way, the paper and binding are top notch. This isn't copier paper simply perfect-bound. This is heavy 65lb paper with soft cover binding.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does this book help with Goldfish, too?
A: Oh yes. When I did the Weatherhill Goldfish book (also sold on this site) they pared out a fair amount of the dosing stuff. So Koi Health & Disease remains the last word on the "how to, step by step" and all you do, with just a couple of exceptions, is use the word "Goldfish" in place of "Koi". Injections, baths, dips, most other diagnostic and pathophysiology issues are directly correlated. Formalin and Supaverm are notable diversions but Supaverm is not in the book in it's current edition. ~ Dr. Erik Johnson (koivet.com)
Q: If I wanted to buy 40 copies of Koi Health and Disease for our club, would you be able to reduce the price? NM - Washington Koi & Water Garden Society
A: Simply email us, our customer support leader and we will make arrangements on a wholesale purchase of these items. You'd be surprised what you could buy at extremely favorable club prices when you achieve a 'dozen' pack order.

Koi Health & Diseases is an incredible guide to koi problems. I have raised koi for ten years and lost a lot of them due to my ignorance. I can not express what a great guide Koi Health & Diseases is. I sat down and read the entire book when it came, nodding at the observations and realizing, "Yep, I made that mistake, yep, I did that too". It should help me to avoid mistakes in the future. Thank you for sending it.
