    Hi Meridith,
    I notice sarcoids mentioned in this article.
    My mule has a very large one and I wonder if you’ve found any cures or help.
    Thank you very much

      Sarcoids are very difficult to treat and act differently with every animal. It is better to catch them sooner than later. I had some on my animals and they were treated differently with each one. In the early years, we would surgically remove them and then inject the site with a drug that I cannot remember, but it worked. Then I had two that got sarcoids, rubbed them and broke them open, and they just disappeared after a few weeks, but they were very small. I think they built up an immunity to them. I have heard about success lately with a drug called Xterra. Either way, it is advisable to call your veterinarian immediately so the sarcoid does not have the chance to get so large that you cannot do anything with it. One of my dear friends lost a john mule that had them in the scrotum and they got so large, there was nothing they could do for him. Best of luck!
