Abstract: Vaginal tumors are more common benign, solid tumors in bitch as compared to tumors of upper reproductive organs. A 20 kg, seven years old street dog was admitted to SAQTVH of CVASU, Chittagong, Bangladesh with a gross lesion of large mass around vagina from two years ago and it was increasing day by day. Clinical examination revealed round, solid mass of 20 cm width and 16 cm diameter with 110 gm in weight. After proper diagnosis, the animal was anesthetized with general anesthesia using diazepam and ketamine combination and local anesthetics also used for maintenance. The animal was stabilized with 0.9% Nacl isotonic solution. Surgical correction was performed by total resection of tumor mass and the resected part was transferred to pathology lab for histo-pathological diagnosis resulting leiomyoma of vagina. Post-operative treatment was maintained with antibiotic and the owner was advised to spay her dog to reduce recurrence of tumor. After 10 days the dog was completely recovered from surgical wound and follow up history for five months revealed no recurrence of tumor.
