Equine Ailments - A to Z



Sarcoid Tumour (equine sarcoid) - a tumour on the skin caused by virus, though they do not appear to be contagious. It resembles a single wart at first but often grows rapidly and ulcerates. A damaged sarcoid may start growing and spreading more quickly, which makes biopsies or half hearted attempts at treatment a risk. If the sarcoid is 'quiet' and not in a place where it might cause problems (such as under the saddle), it may be best left alone. If treatment is decided upon, it must be carried out under a vet's guidance, with careful monitoring at all stages. Treatment - may include surgical removal or freezing of the sarcoid, on removal it tends to bleed and it may recur. Radiation treatment or the use of highly toxic ointments may be prescribed to prevent recurrence.
