There was a thread I started on the same issue. Could you post pics as you progress, please?

I think this is great. one of my quarter horses had one on his back leg (around the fetlock area). We managed to get rid of this several years ago by using a paste that our vet got made up at a pharmacy and some human suppliment tablets. However we also now have 3yr old, that has ended up with one in nearly the same place, however the same treatment has not worked. And over the last 12 months we have spent thousands on treatments. I'm am willing to try just about anything, and I certainly perked up on seeing your experiment. Good luck, I will certainly be subscribing.

Thanks for giving some hope

Hello there, I'm back from my holiday, and the sarcoids continued getting smaller/dryer while I was away, which is such a relief!
Today's Update: The round one on her lip is getting really dry and flakey. The flat ones she has on her neck and shoulders and also the scaley patches are getting really dry, and a lot is flaking right off at the touch (well, a slight rub, but nothing to cause discomfort, just like how you'd rub your face when exfoliating it, or something like that) The small 2 on her right hind thigh are very small and scabby now, I think they're nearly ready to drop IMO. And finally, the one right in the centre of her belly, well, a good half flaked off today, and I think the other half is pretty ready for it too. I promise I will try to remember to take my camera!! I'm such a sift-head!!

By the way, I just want to say thank you to everyone for your interest. I know it's not as exciting to everyone as it is to me (but I'm just ecstatic that it's working!!) and sorry I ramble so much, but again, a big Thank You for all your interest and comments, they're much appreciated!

WOW !!... this IS interesting...

My mare has a sarcoid and in the South West, we use what is called " Indian Mud " and pretty much eat's away the growth right down to the core... but, it is pretty hard to get a hold of.... I'm treating my mare now. I'm really into this post, as the " Indian Mud" is pretty expensive stuff, althought, they do not grow back in the same place... who would have thunk " tooth paste" is another cure ??? ... I KNOW freezing them off will do the trick, but they do come back in the same place... Glad for this Thread !
Best of Luck !!

Thank you! Yeah, I wrote down a whole list of treatments (including "just leave them alone" although I wasn't 100% with that Idea) But many I'd gotten from sites in the USA, and when I looked over here, they either didn't have them, or were ridicules amounts of money! So, when toothpaste caught my eye I thought "What luck! I have access to lots of different toothpaste!" and being as apparently it's the Fluoride in the toothpaste that makes the sarcoid wither, I thought I'd get the one with the highest Fluoride content in it (that I could buy over the counter anyway). And so far, the effects are very good, and already visible!

How incredibly interesting! My mare has a few sarcoids. Maybe I will consult my dentist tomorrow for a high-fluoride toothpaste! Nothing to lose in trying. Thanks for sharing this experiment with us!

Great news, you might have just come across a really cheap alternative. It will be interesting to see how long they stay away for and if it works for any other horse.

Fingers crossed! :)
