Wellness appointments are the annual visits that your pet needs to get their vaccines and ensure they are in optimal health. In addition to basic exams, we also offer a variety of services that can be scheduled separately or during the time of your annual visit.
Please note that the cost of annual wellness exams for both cats and dogs will vary based on your parish of residence and the intact status of your pet.

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.
Louisiana leads 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.
1-12 lbs: $500 ($200 deposit)

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