Sarcrid Salve
Natural Herbal Relief - Helps heal equine skin conditions

Sarcrid Salve SARCRID SALVE is all-natural herbal salve specially formulated to treat the potentially debilitating condition of equine sarcoids. This superior treatment has been field tested and reported to be effective in helping to eliminate these unsightly skin growths.

The success of this salve is better with fibroblastic, verrucose, nodular and mixed. The occult sarcoids are much harder to penetrate, and seem to heal much slower with this salve. The proven combination of ingredients in Sarcrid Salve are 100% plant derived.

Apply lightly over affected area daily until resolution is achieved. Use any clean flat plastic, wood or metal applicator. Will stain skin and cloth. The container treatment time is TOTALLY dependent on the size, number, type and depth of the sarcoid(s).....although, one should know by the end of one container, whether the salve is going to work.

Since sarcoids are such an individualistic disease, what works for one, may not work for another, AND what cures one in weeks, make take another months. No predictions are made, other than the expectation of positive changes in the four ounce tube.

EQUINE SARCOID FACTS:

    Definition: A sarcoid is a locally aggressive, fibroblastic tumor of equine skin with a variable epithelial component and a high tendency to recurrence. Probably the most common cutaneous reason for euthanasia. Value of horse is decreased with sarcoids.

    Treatment: Effective therapeutic options are very limited, some lesions may be better left alone.

    Prognosis: Very guarded must be given for all sarcoids as even benign looking lesions may progress to aggressive forms. Treatment is very difficult with varying and inconsistent results. Do not refer to sarcoids as 'warts' or 'angelberries' - the term 'skin cancer' better describes the potentially dangerous nature of the lesions.

    Incidence: Geographic

    Cost: Expensive. Equine sarcoid is a cause of huge losses to the equine industry. Treatment, if implemented tends to be prolonged, may need to be repeated, and may be unsuccessful, leading to major expense to the owner. Lesions may interfere with ability of horse to work.

    Special Risks: High rate of recurrence and possibly even exacerbation of the lesions which assume a variety of gross forms.

    General: It has been suggested that sarcoid lesions tend to occur on areas of skin prone to traumatic insult. Surgical trauma of castration my expose geldings to the causal agent.

    Description: Fibroblastic types have long sinuous pegs of tumour tissue extending beneath the intact epidermis. High tendency for sarcoids to recur.

    Timecourse: Lesions tend to persist; some static, some worsen over time. Spontaneous resolution is very rare.

    History: Lesions commonly seen on head (periorbital, lips and muzzle), ventral abdomen and thorax (especially paragenital area) and limbs. Lesions may worsen following iatrogenic or other trauma (e.g. biopsy). Lesions may interfere with wound healing. Biopsy may lead to progression of lesion to more aggressive form! Do not biopsy unless you can treat the lesion as soon as results are available.

    Treatment Options: Effective therapeutic options are limited. Success of various option varies between individual veterinary surgeons. The number of sarcoids, their character, distribution and extent have a major bearing on the selection of treatment regimens. Horses in which there are a few localized lesions are usually amenable to any kind of treatment. Incorrect selection and application is liable to have a poor result with a high rate of recurrence at the site with possible extension to other sites.

    It May Be Better Not to Interfere: Where lesions are small and few in number, and where lesions do not interfere with normal function. Interference with any of the individual types may result in marked increase of the fibroblastic component of the mass.

    Limited by Cost and Practicality: May be feasible for small tumours around eye and other vital areas. Very acceptable cosmetic results with minimum scarring.

    Teletherapy: Effective - but impractical.

    Topical Treatment: Resolution of >80% upon sarcoids treated for the first time. Any previous interference, e.g. biopsy, cryosurgery decreases efficacy. May be scar contraction and deformity at sides of mouth and eyelids. Not suitable for nodular sarcoid unless epidermal component. Arsenic paste or butter of antimony are dangerous, buy may prove beneficial.

    Surgery: Dangerous - 15-20% success. Problem with re-growth and occasionally satellite lesions. Select cases carefully. Useful for nodular sarcoids with no dermal component. Small, well defined tumours carry the best prognosis for surgical excision. Poorly defined verucose and mised lesions - rapid re-growth of a more aggressive nature. Regrowth is likely ot occur if the mass of the tumour is incised during surgery.

    Cryosurgery: 10-25% chance of total resolution.
