Equine sarcoids are locally invasive, fibroblastic skin tumors and represent the most common skin tumor in equidae worldwide. The study was conducted on 8 clinical cases of equine having problem of sarcoid tumour which included 6 horses and 2 mules. The sarcoid growth was removed by surgical intervention under anaesthesia of xylazine and ketamine at the dose rate of 1mg and 2mg per kg body weight, respectively through intravenous route. Post- operatively, Vincristine sulphate was intravenously administered along with supportive therapy. Recurrence of sarcoid was observed in two cases out of eight cases and the rest recovered without any complication. Among the eight cases, three suffered from fibroma, 2 from granulation tissue with excessive proliferation of fibrous tissue and one from squamous cell carcinoma. The biopsy samples of the remaining two cases were not available.
