Veterinarian Tim Barbé

KOI, your passion
my specialty!


Veterinary practice specializing in fish and koi carp

Welcome to the website of FishCareVet!

When a hobby became a passion and this passion could be professionalised, veterinarian Tim Barbé did not hesitate for long. For more than 20 years now he has been professionally helping people with sick fish. With a client base of more than 3500 private customers and companies and a growing number of about 200 clients per year, he is THE reference when it comes to knowledge and experience in treating fish.

Who uses our services?

In addition to private customers/clients with an ornamental pond or aquarium, we also visit businesses, pond stores especially, who want to make sure their fish are sold in perfect condition. Also aquaculture companies that sell live fish for consumption. Angling clubs are also often in need of veterinary guidance, for example after the release of new fish or in cases of mortality.

What are our strengths?

Next to our more than 20 years of experience in examining and treating fish, we have almost everything we need to do this quickly and smoothly. Most tests are done on site at your home: microscopy, water analysis, ultrasound, radiography, blood tests, …. Samples for further analysis are tested in our own fish laboratory : such as Aeromonas culturing, Herpes virus PCR, ….
