Has your dog tested POSITIVE for heartworm disease?
Unfortunately, heartworm disease is very common in our area. This disease, left untreated, can lead to heart failure and death. Therefore, we offer affordable heartworm treatment. Our treatment plan consists of the following:
One month of doxycycline (antibiotic) treatment to decrease the damage caused by the worms.
Monthly Heartgard chewable tablet.
Steroids before the immiticide (worm-killing) injections if clinical signs (coughing, exercise intolerance, sudden decrease in activity) are present.
Two or three injections of the immiticide depending on health of dog.
Pain medications during the injections and after the injections.
Steroids after the injections.
Our prices depend on the size of your dog. For the smallest dog with the simplest case, your price may be approximately $180. For the largest dog with the most complicated case, the price is approximately $950. For an exact cost for your dog, please come in for an exam with our doctor.
