Pet Lovers

Here in New Orleans, pets are part of our lives as much as anything else. Let the Louisiana SPCA help you care for your pet! 

Louisiana SPCA
community clinic

 

Launched in 1924, the Louisiana SPCA Community Clinic has grown far beyond our wildest imagination. What originally started off as a very small endeavor, has now grown into an 8,000 square foot state-of-the-art veterinary clinic. With 5 exam rooms, 2 surgical suites, a dedicated heartworm treatment wing, on-site pharmacy and so much more, the new Community Clinic is able to service even more pets in the Greater New Orleans community. While our mission is still rooted in spay/neuter, our services are always expanding and we’re proud to offer discounted services to pet parents regardless of what parish they live in.  

We do not offer emergency services. If your pet is in need of immediate medical attention, please contact an emergency clinic near you. 

All of the services offered at the Louisiana SPCA Community Clinic are offered at a reduced fee. We do our best to keep costs low but quality high. With a combined experience of 115 years, you can rest assure that your pet is in great hands with our skilled team of Veterinarians.

Spay/Neuter

As the regions leader in high-volume spay/neuter, the Louisiana SPCA Community Clinic specializes in this procedure. In addition to the health and behavorial benefits, spay/neuter is the #1 way to reduce pet overpopulation. If you're unsure if spay/neuter is the right choice for your pet, please take a moment to read over some frequently asked questions.

Wellness

We offer a full range of wellness services that continues to grow year-after-year. 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. These services include:

  • microchip
  • vaccinations
  • SNAP testing (heartworms, parvo, FeLv, FIV)
  • deworming
  • nail trims
  • anal gland expression
  • consultations for skin, diet
  • health certifications for travel
  • baseline bloodwork
  • fecals
  • urinalysis 
  • IDEXX lab work 
  • rabies tags 
  • flea and heartworm medication
  • ProHeart Heartworm Prevention Injection 
  • medicated shampoos
  • veterinary pharmaceutical items 

Dentals 

It's recommended that pets get their teeth cleaned annually, just like humans. By keeping your pets teeth in tip top shape you reduce their chance of getting periodontal disease, tooth decay and potential extractions. 

 

Heartworm Treatment

Heartworm disease is rampant in the south and the Greater New Orleans region is no exception. 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 we require a heartworm consult to determine the best course of action for your pet. 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. 

For pet owners who adopted a heartworm positive dog from the Louisiana SPCA, we do provide heartworm treatment at NO cost to you. However, we do require that you purchase heartworm prevention.
