55 Excellent for sarcoids
Verified Purchase

By on 2 April 2020

Might seem pricey at first glance but this bloodroot ointment dissolves sarcoids, from small to large, in a matter of weeks. My TB suffers from all types of sarcoids, and when one appears I apply a little twice a day directly onto the surface. It helps to also give the horse a good immune support supplement, to partner with the bloodroot ointment. After a few weeks the sarcoid will begin to scab over. Then after 6-8 weeks this will drop off. Keep applying until there is only new, healthy flesh revealed then stop treatment so as not to burn the baby skin. Works better than anything ever tried, and is almost painless to the horse - apart from some minor irritation when you first apply it.

I can’t believe but it works. I am so happy for my lovely boy:) It looks like a very small bootle of cream but it’s a long lasting. after one sarcoid treatment you can say that the bootle is still full - like new

55 Amazing product !!
Verified Purchase

By on 27 July 2019

This product has worked so well for my horse , has gotten rid of all of her sarcoids within two weeks. I applied the cream twice daily/sometimes once and they have all gone and are now healing up nicely. Her skin was not irritated at all and she is very sensitive, she was completely unbothered whenever I applied the cream. I was really reluctant to use this as I was scared I would hurt her, but I’m so glad I did !

55 Sarcoids with bloodroot ointment

By on 25 June 2019

Amazing product! My vet reccomended using the bloodroot before considering the Liverpool cream or laser. I have been using it for a week, putting it on my horse twice a day. His sarcoid was about the size of a 10p coin, he wasn’t fussed when I put the cream on. His sarcoid was on the inside of his from leg and kept getting knocked by his martingale so it was time so it to go. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to getting rid of sarcoids before going down the expensive vet route

Treating a sarcoid


Hi I've recently bought a mare and she has a one sarcoid under her tummy towards her back end, its crusty at the moment but often looks reddish at times, when is it best to apply and how often? Is it best to try and cover somehow after you've applied the cream? Is it painful on application as it's a tricky place for me to get too if she flinches . How long do you use it for ? And I've read it's sometimes look worse before it gets better? What should I be looking out for? Sorry about all the questions but I'm very frightened of hurting her and making it worse.

  • VioVet Staff

This product is normally applied 2 or 3 times daily for up to 3 weeks. It is not a particularly potent treatment and is not usually painful. It is difficult to ascertain how effective it is when used on its own as Sarcoids behave in unpredictable ways anyway. Personally I would advise that it is best if your veterinary surgeon advises you on treatment options for this condition because there are many types of sarcoid and many treatment options. (The most effective treatments tend to be vet-only and not something you can apply yourself for safety reasons.) If it is not too bad in the first place, then this product might be appropritate.

Applying Cream


Thinking of using this on my boys sarcoids. Is there anything you have to be careful with when using the cream? Such as should you wear gloves? Do you need to make sure you don't get the cream on the skin surrounding the sarcoid?

  • VioVet Staff

It is sensible to always wear gloves when applying any skin treatment, or you will be inadvertently treating your own skin too. Ideally it should be applied only to the affected part and not the surrounding skin, but this does not need to be followed to the extreme.

Weepy sarcoids


Can you apply this cream to sarcoids that have broken through which are red and weepy?

  • VioVet Staff

This product can be applied to ulcerated sarcoids as you describe. It tends to cause an inflammatory reaction and then subsequent scarring, which to some extent covers the sarcoids.
