Transmissible venereal tumor, also known as infectious sarcoma or Sticker tumor, has a different incidence from one race to another although the range is known as a cosmopolitan character disorder. In our study. In our cases the incidence was 23%. The initial lesions are superficial, small pink to red, 1 mm to 3 mm diameter nodules can be observed, then multiple nodules fuse together forming larger, red, hemorrhagic, cauliflower-like, friable masses, that draws the owners attention. Tumors bleed easily and while becoming larger, normally ulcerate and become contaminated (Hoque, 2002). For this study two groups were used, the first group included 11 dogs, the second group 12 dogs, different race and age, all males, raised in freedom, with little socialization with other dogs. For the first group the treatment was made with vincristine sulfate at a dose of 0.025 mg/kg, i.v, administered weekly, for a period of 7 weeks. The second group was treated with vinbleastina at a dose of 0,1 mg/hg i.v, administered weekly, for 6 weeks. The best results were with vincristine, 95%, while the results for the treatment with vinblastine were between 85-95%.
