I took my axolotl to Doctor Larroquette, he had ascites (edema), and his body was swelling so much that the blood vessels were rupturing, blisters appeared under the chin and above the two front legs. On Monday the axolotl began to show still discreet symptoms, on Wednesday it was like in these photos! Antibiotic treatment was prescribed by the doctor.

Start of treatment on Wednesday evening: Baytril for an axolotl of 220 grams. Orally, 0.1 ml for 10 days. During treatment, optimal oxygenation is useful with the antibiotic which tends to stifle this exchange (skin / water). The next day the loulou almost completely deflated, apart from his two hind legs, but the transformation is spectacular! Its blisters having broken I was not able to inflict a salt bath on it to restore the osmotic exchange (and therefore promote oxygenation) but as the wounds begin to fungus I put it in a permanent blue bath.

Is the concern being stopped? As specified by the veterinarian, ascites can have multiple causes: renal, cardiac, infectious). Since the antibiotic treatment is having an effect, it is very possible that it is a bacterial infection, the other axolotls have no symptoms and are doing very well, but maybe he was a healthy carrier of something or was deficient, it still remains a mystery.

Day 3: the gills strombose and a blister re-swells. So I made the decision to put him back with his friends in the aquarium, because the well-being factor is vital in their healing and I know that he will have plenty of oxygen thanks to the many plants.

Day 2-3-4: Incredible! its regeneration has started the wounds which were beginning to fungus are now clean! The gills grow back, the filaments grow bigger!

The wounds are almost all healed, the skin is again beautiful and clear. The blood vessels that had ruptured with the edema are resorbed ...
