Trans-venereal tumors are actually the tumors of all canine species but mostly seen in domestic dogs which are used for breeding. These tumors appear cauliflower like pedunculated growth on the prepuce or base of penis in males and on vaginal surface in females. Similar case was seen when a bull dog visited the outdoor clinic at department of clinics, medicine and surgery (CMS) at University of Agriculture Faisalabad (UAF), Pakistan with complaint of bloody discharge from the preputial sac just after urination and prolong siting. All clinical parameters were normal but a pedunculated cauliflower like tumorous growth at the base of penis was found on palpation. Based on characteristic appearance and anatomical position, the tumor was recognized as TVT. Vincristine sulfate injections were used to treat this tumor on weekly basis for six weeks. Animal re-examined after 6 weeks for the presence of tumor but tumor was regressed completely.
