Nasal adenocarcinoma was diagnosed in 5 sheep from a flock over 6 years. Surgical treatment, using a nasal flap approach, was completed in 3 ewes, 2 of which survived a year or more. In these 2 ewes, the mass was present at necropsy, but was not confirmed as the cause of death. The surgical procedure and care after surgery are described. Surgical resection of the mass was considered to be an acceptable procedure for salvage of an additional breeding season and lamb crop in valuable ewes.
