SARCOID EVENING TALK MILBOURN EQUINE VET:
What they are, their causes and how to treat them.
They are tumors, they may proliferate in size and number but the treatment is possible.
The cause is a bovine papillomavirus and flies are a risk factor.
Sarcoids can appear at wound sites as a non healing wound.
They need to be treated because they can become ulcerated or infected leading to pain. If they are located over joints or on eyelids they can lead to functional problems.
There are six diffrent types of sarcoids which are: occult (hairless patches), nodular, verrucous, fibroblastic,malevolent and mixed combination of sarcoid types present at one site.
There are different solutions to treat sarcoids such as laser therapy, sarcoid creams (can only be applied by your vet due to its cytotoxic nature), blood root cream (safe for the owner), surgery, intralesional chemotherapy and cryosurgery.
Melanoma is a different type of tumor which can be found mainly on grey horses (under the tail or close to the jaw).
