Don't cry. Some things have to get worse before they get better. It could be that the growth or bad cells covered a larger area than seen.
Wait until you talk to the vet.

I know it's hard to see, but I do believe it's supposed to get "quite angry" after treatment, before the healing starts. I'm not quite at this stage yet in my treatment with my horse, but the way my vet has described it, I'm fully expecting to see something just like this.

I'm interested in hearing the advice of your vet. Good luck and thinking good thoughts for you.

I thought I would see this, but hoping the sarcoid would not still be in the middle of it, so am a little confused if I should keep on the 4 day on/4 off schedule for just the sarcoid in the middle ... hoping vet can come by and check it - I'd sure feel better...

Believe me I know how you feel, I almost cried when I first saw Hunters face. I won't do the xterra again. I will call this other vet with the one time treatment. It was bad but not as bad as xterra. Here is a pict of Hunters face last night. You can see the hair growing back in on the right hand side one. The crappy thing is I think he has another one coming up on his cheek on the other side. Darn that was his good side. Hate that they are all on his face.

That sucks Hunter, any chance he'll grow some hair back? I talked to the vet today after sending him the pictures, and he said to let it rest now. He said I could spray it with Vetricin (sp?) and just let it be for awhile. We will reassess after this mess heals up and we see what we are left with.

On a side note, her jaw is now hot and swollen and starting to scab, so we'll see how that one does - pics of that tomorrow...

Sorry, I've not read all the replies, but we have had great success using Clean Horse

The man who makes it is out of Arkansas. My best horse got a very aggressive sarcoid, which is a viral condition, 2 yrs ago. I used Clean Horse, and the sarcoid shrunk and disappeared in 2 weeks. There are several companies who make a similar salve. I like this particular blend because it has dmso. The bloodroot is an essential ingredient, and Clean Horse is made with bloodroot.

Years ago, one my husband's best horses got sarcoids. The vet removed them, and they came back with a vengeance. He had to sell the horse. This product is money well spent if you're dealing with sarcoids, or any other type of skin growth. It also gets rid of warts & melanomas.

That sounds very close to the xterra that I used, it is also made with bloodroot.

I've heard of xterra, but haven't used it. My horse's sarcoid was aggressive in that it was fast growing. However, it did not get bloody, it oozed, and looked more like an infection coming to a head. It sloughed right off. I did not pick at it the entire time. I just kept plenty of product piled on, and let it come off on it's own.

Whiskey's sarcoid today:

It is reducing in size, unsure if the sarcoid is still there under the scab. Putting Vetricyn on it every day.
