The study was conducted on eight male camels with soft palate injuries. Animals were presented with history of dysphagia. Soft palate injury occurred by their own tooth (3 cases), by other camel (4 cases) and by branch of tree (1 case). Injured soft palate had haematoma in 4 camels, abscess in 3 camels and gangrene formation in 1 camel. In three camels injured soft palate was retained inside and in 5 camels it was protruded out side. Injured soft palate excision was done from its caudal most attachment with long mayo scissors under Xylazine sedation. Post-operatively, the camels was given antibiotic and analgesic. All animals recovered uneventfully.
