A problem of protruding mass from the vagina was appeared in the bitch. That mass was small in size in beginning but with the passage of time its size was enhancing and blood was also oozing out from that mass. Examination of the protruded mass showed that it was the transmissible venereal tumor. Treatment with vincristine sulfate @ 0.025mg/Kg Body weight resulted in considerable reduction in the size of pedunculated mass after 3 weeks. Surgical treatment was avoided due to anatomical locations of the tumors. Surgery is usually done on small and localized tumors because during surgery contamination of surgical site may lead to recurrence of the TVTs

Key Words: Dog; transmissible venereal tumor; external genitalia.
