Sarcoid Treatments for Horses
Equine Sarcoids - the most mis-managed problem for horses and their owners.
Sarcoids can render an otherwise sound horse unusable. It is the most frequently diagnosed tumor in horses. Surveys have estimated
the predominance of sarcoids at 20% of all equine neoplasms and 36% of all skin tumors. They occur at any age but are more
common in young adult horses. These tumors may be single or multiple and, although they occur most frequently on the head, limbs
and abdomen, they can occur anywhere on the body including sites of trauma and healed wounds.
Sarcoid Identification 101
Sacoids come in all shapes and sizes. We have listed the six different types of sarcoids below along with their description.
• Occult sarcoids - These are flat, hairless, lichen-like, slightly crusting, dark patches. They often have a smooth, dark hairless area
• Verrucose sarcoids - These are raised, nobbly, dark areas that often spread into poorly defined margins. They can also be
ulcerated on occasions.
• Nodular sarcoids - These are firm and nodular skin lumps which may have normal skin over them.
• Fibroblastic sarcoids - These are often ulcerated, weeping, raised sore lesions that may become pedunculated and cauliflower
• Mixed sarcoids - Sarcoids are commonly a mixture of two or more of the forms described above.
• Malevolent sarcoids - These are rare, invasive sarcoids that invade deeper tissues beneath the skin.
What can a horse owner do when confronted with a Sarcoid? Typically they ask two questions. How did they get it and how do I get
rid of it? The answer to the first question is the underlying cause of Sarcoid tumors is the Bovine Papilloma virus. Yes a cow virus..that is transferred by flies.

About The Makers of Veterinary Grade
The makers of Veterinary Grade are animal lovers, growing up around farm animals and seeking to improve their lives. At Veterinary
Grade, we are continually asking ourselves: "How can we solve problems in the most natural way?" From humble roots, our founders
came together in 2018 to establish Veterinary Grade. They are guided by, and value: efficacy, awareness coupled with traditional
approaches, and ABOVE ALL, the preservation and respect of LIFE. Their upbringing was steeped in agricultural traditions, where the cooperation between animal and human was paramount.
Similar to the products and services available for humans, horse and livestock caregivers have a lack of effective, naturally-sourced
(plant derived) products for some of the most common afflictions. Our animals are important to us. Veterinary Grade exists to provide
natural remedies to common ailments in large animals (equine, canine and bovine species) without the use of invasive procedures and toxic pharmaceuticals.
Is It True My Horse's Coat Is An Indicator Of Health?
YES! The skin (coat) is one of the largest organs. Its condition can be a general indicator of overall health. A shiny, glossy coat, rich
in color, soft to the touch has long been acknowledged as an 'outward appearance of inward health'. Sarcoidosis and harmful growths
(i.e.: tumors) are a common concern for horse, pony and donkey owners; effecting a significant portion of their species' population.
Left un-attended, they can lead to further health-issues as well as pain, discomfort and disharmony for your animal.
What Are Sarcoids?
Sarcoidosis is a disease complex found in several mammalian species. Specifically, equine sarcoids are the most common of tumor
growths reported in horses. Sarcoids are non-malignant; they typically do not spread throughout the body, yet frequently grow larger
and multiply locally. They can occur as single or multiple lesions in different forms; ranging from small, wart-like lesions to large, ulcerated and fibrous growths.
What Causes Sarcoids To Appear?
There has yet to be a clear, exact cause of sarcoids, but it is widely believed (based upon strong evidence) that they are initiated by
viral infection, such as BPV (Bovine Papilloma Virus). This would be transmitted by flies or other biting insects.
How Did BLOODROOT PASTE by Veterinary Grade, Come To Be?
Always looking to find a natural solution and wanting to avoid harsh treatments, like chemotherapy drugs, cryotherapy treatments
(freezing the sarcoids) or laser surgery, the team at Veterinary Grade set out on a mission to identify the most potent botanicals while
being guided by scientific research and trial-and-error. The result of all of our labor is Veterinary Grade Bloodroot Paste. The results are usually pretty fast and amazing. Our success is your success!

How Do I Treat My Horse's Sarcoids With BLOODROOT PASTE?
1) Talk to your Veterinarian! We absolutely advise all clients to discuss the use of our product(s) with a licensed veterinarian. Make sure he or she is aware of your horse's condition!
2) Completely cover affected area and completely avoid non-infected areas! The bloodroot paste must be applied directly to the
affected area and covered thoroughly. Apply to the afflicted area only. Avoid applying to healthy tissue.
3) Monitor and apply daily or every couple of days. Careful tracking, documenting and/or observation of the affliction is best practice
when ready to start treatment. Throughout the process, it is critical to pay careful attention.
4) You may need to treat a 2nd time to prevent more growth. It is necessary to target the afflicted area for several days, prior to
stopping (resting) the treatment. It has been reported by clients that a second series of treatment is required to ensure that the growths
do not return. In some instances (depending on the size and life-time of the growth), multiple applications are required. In the case of
a sarcoid/growth being located close to the eyes and inner-ear, be extremely careful in applying the paste.
5) Avoid Eyes and Inside Mouth: Do not apply near the animal's eyes and please remember that Veterinary Grade Bloodroot Paste is for topical use only. Do not ingest.
Note: If the product comes in contact with eyes, rinse thoroughly with water; multiple times is advisable. Wash hands thoroughly after each application.
What Is The Best Way To Apply BLOODROOT PASTE?
Wearing disposable, medical grade latex/nitrile gloves, apply the paste directly to the sarcoid and/or growth. Cover (dress) the
treated sarcoid/growth with a breathable dressing or bandage. Ensure that the dressing is secure, but not overly tight. You do not
want to create too much pressure with the dressing. It is important to keep debris from the growth as it is being treated, as well as
allowing for airflow. Change the dressing with each treatment, and/or when necessary. Never apply bloodroot paste to an open,
healing wound. Treatment is most effective on a sarcoid or growth that is not open and healing.
How OFTEN Will I Need To Apply?
This depends on the severity and live-span of the sarcoid/growth (how long as it been on the animal). One-to-two applications is typical, but it could require 3-4.
What Makes BLOODROOT PASTE So Effective?
Bloodroot Paste is effective for multiple reasons:
• It changes the antigenicity of a sarcoid which accelerates the host's natural immune system;
• This immune response rejects the sarcoid breakout rather quickly;
• It utilizes high-quality, and primary plant-based ingredients with proven qualities;
• Bloodroot contains important alkaloids that fight against harmful cells;
• Chaparral leaf contains antioxidants, anti-inflammatories (nordihydroguaiaretic acid – NDGA), polyphenols (lignans) as well as blood purifying qualities;
• Graviola leaf/stem is a potent antioxidant (hosting natural chemicals known as acetogenins);
• Zinc is vital in proper immune system function and cell division (for growth and healing); and
• There are no artificial or pharma-chemical ingredients that would have side effects.
