Heartworm Treatment

COVID-19 Update: We are starting heartworm treatment on new pets but we ask for your patience as we work through our backlog of injections. We are following all protocols set forth by the American Heartworm Society. All heartworm consultation appointments must be made by calling 504.368.5191 – these appointments cannot be made online.

Southern states lead the country with the highest number of heartworm positive animals. Spread by mosquitoes, heartworm disease affects a large portion of all animals that come to the Louisiana SPCA. Each case of heartworms is different and requires a heartworm consult to determine the best course of action for your pet. Sadly, there is currently no known heartworm treatments for cats.

The cost of treatment varies based on the size of your pet and includes all of their medications throughout the course of the treatment plan. There is a non-refundable deposit due at the end of the consultation should you decide to pursue heartworm treatment for your pet. Due to the high cost of heartworm treatment we do have payment plans available that are based on injection dates as well as CareCredit. Our veterinarians will review the payment plan options with you at the time of the consultation and answer any questions you might have.

If you adopt a dog that is heartworm positive at the time of adoption, we provide heartworm treatment at NO cost to you. However, we do require that you purchase heartworm prevention.  

  • Consultation: $25
  • 1-12 lbs: $500 ($200 deposit)
  • 26-75 lbs: $700 ($300 deposit)
  • 75-100 lbs: $800 ($400 deposit)
  • 100-150 lbs: $1,000 ($500 deposit) 

Discounts are available for senior citizens, people receiving government assistance, first responders, military and students.

The costs to humanely euthanize a pet are based on the pet’s weight.

  • 1-15 lbs: $50
  • 15-50 lbs: $75
  • 51-80 lbs: $100
  • 81 lbs +: $125

Cremation

Communal creation is included in the costs of euthanasia listed above. This service is done at our New Orleans Campus and the remains are not returned to you.

For private cremation, we work with our partners at Heaven’s Pets. If you select this option, we will reach out to Heaven’s Pets on your behalf. Once the service is initiated, Heaven’s Pets will reach out to you directly to collect payment and verify all information is correct. They will also offer you additional keepsakes if you choose. Heaven’s Pets will then come to our facility to collect your pet for cremation. Once completed, you can choose to pick up your pet from us or from Heaven’s Pets.

  • Communal Cremation: $0
    • Included with the cost of euthanasia
  • Private Cremation: $200

Can you believe there are veterinarians across the country that have never seen a case of Heartworm disease before? Heartworm disease is rampant in the south and the Greater New Orleans region is no exception. Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal condition caused by parasitic worms living in the arteries of the lungs and heart of cats, dogs and other mammals. All cats and dogs are susceptible to infection. Heartworm disease is completely preventable and treatment is safe and inexpensive! Some treatment options include chewable tablets, topicals or injections.  The key is to provide Heartworm preventatives properly and on a timely schedule each month.
