In this study a total 5877 dogs were studied between Oct. 2006 to Oct. 2007 at SPCA Nagpur, accounting 1.24% incidence of venereal granuloma. Among total 5877 adult dogs, 45 male and 28 females suffering from venereal granuloma were treated with vincristine sulphate@0.025mg/kg body weight I/V. Three injections of vincristine sulphate were given by slow I/V rout at weekly intervals. In most of the cases bleeding was stopped after first injection. The response to treatment was evaluated on the basis of regression of the growth and there was complete regression after third dose of vincristine sulphate injection. During whole treatment no side effect of vincristine was recorded.
