PLEASE NOTE I AM NO EXPERT AND THIS POST IS JUST BASED ON MY PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE,FOR EXPERT ADVISE YOU SHOULD ALWAYS CONSULT A VET WITH FISH EXPERTISE.
Before adding any treatments check your basic water parameters ,ph,kh,nitite,nitrate O2ammonia.Sera omnipur s Ideally you should never treat without first identifying the exact problem. For people without microscopes,if there are signs of problems(e.g.flicking,skin redness,minor bacterial problems)this is a good broad range treatment.this product contains most of the common koi treatments and some.

Before use shake the bottle vigorously to ensure that all the different ingredients are mixed thoroughlyensure that you know the pond volume and double check the dosageDo not use with salt above 1/2 ounce per gallon [b Do follow the manufactures instructions. Do increase pond aeration
There are probably similar effective products on the market, but I am aware of people who have used this with success. do not leave koi unattended in the first 2 hours of treatment

This is for aquarium usage so I think would cost a fortune for a pond.
The main ingredients are Acriflavine and Malachite green. Composition: 9-amino acridine hydrochloride 105 mg, acriflavine chloride 600 mg, ethacridine lactate 3375 mg, malachite green oxalate 79 mg, aqua purificata ad 100 ml.
The info says it
"combats the most common ornamental fish diseases: Bacterial infections, fin rot, fungal infections (Saprolegnia, Achlya), skin slime (Costia, Chilodonella), Trichodina, Oodinium, gill and skin flukes (Dactylogyrus or Gyrodactylus), skin injuries and wounds.
I doubt it will do anything for flukes so I would be reluctant to use it for that.
