A non-descriptive (mongrel) bitch aged around 9 years, weighing 16 kg was presented with history of inappetence and reddish discharge from vagina for several weeks. Vaginal examination revealed sero-sanguinous discharge and vegetative growth (granulomatous) on vestibular region. Ovariohysterectomy was done under proper anesthesia and sterile methods. The bitch was treated with inj. Intaceftazo1 @ 15mg/kg for 5 days, inj. vincristine sulfate@ 0.5-0.7 mg/m2 of body surface area or 0.025 mg/kg once in a week for approximately three consecutive weeks along with supportive therapy. Post-operative cares were taken with given antibiotics, antineoplastic drugs, anti-inammatory drugs, multivitamins and other supportive therapies. The animal recovered uneventfully at third weeks and there was no re-occurrence in follow up period of two months.
