Radiographic showed infuse periosteal reaction, so surgery excision was recomended. The extracted material was sent for histopathological analysis. The postoperative treatment consisted of dexamethasone (IV), phenylbutazone (IV), morphine (IM) and cephalosporin (IM). As a complementary therapy, the healing period was used policresuleno, silver sulfadiazine, copper sulfate, copaiba oil, barbatimão and laser therapy. Further sessions were held with power of 10mW laser therapy, 4J/cm2 intensity and wavelength of 658nm. The patient’s recovery was slow but got up successfully, the lesion healed completely after eight months and there was no recurrence of the fabric to date of publication of this report, so little functional impairment of the animal.
