Abstract: This case report describes the chemotherapy and surgical treatment of penile and vaginal transmissible venereal tumor in a 5years male dog, 4years male dog and 4 years female dogs weighing approximately 20kg, 15kg, and 18kg body weight respectively. Clinical examination revealed bleeding, slightly pale mucus membrane, cauliflower like, friable mass of tissue attached to the penis and protrusion of tissue at the vulva region of the female dog. Blood and tissue samples were collected for hematology and histopathology. Hematology result shows low packed cell volume (PCV) and histopathology result confirmed transmissible venereal tumor. Chemotherapy with vincristine sulphate 1mL IV once weekly for 3 week in male dogs and 5 doses of vincristine sulphate 1mL IV once weekly following surgical excision of the tumor mass for the female dog shows complete regression of the tumor after treatment in all the three dogs and there is no report of recurrence of the tumor after 4 months of post treatment. In conclusion use of vincristine 1mL IV and surgical resection of the tumor mass is effective in treating transmissible venereal tumor in dogs. Control movement and mating with unknown dogs is recommended.
