Wounds that occur on the horse distal limb may evolve with the appearance of an exuberant granulation tissue that causes discomfort both to the animal and to the owner. Granulation tissue usually appears in the healing phase, but it evolves in excess due to the area prone to infection, with low blood supply, difficult to suture and in continuous movement. This case report describes the treatment of an exuberant granulation tissue in a mixed Romanian horse breed by histiotripsy using an elastic ligature. The success of the treatment consisted in gradual ablation of exuberant tissue given by the suppression of blood circulation, limited the local infection and subsequent stimulation of scarring. During the treatment, episodes of mild lameness and localized edema may occur, and in case of unexpected elimination of the exuberant mass a massive haemorrhage will occur.
