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.


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.

Spay/Neuter appointments are made Monday-Thursday. Pets must be dropped off at 7:30 a.m. and picked up between 4 - 4:30 p.m. Please allow 30 minutes at drop off and pickup to complete paperwork.


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

  • deworming
  • nail trims
  • anal gland expression
  • consultations for skin, diet

  • flea and heartworm medication
  • ProHeart Heartworm Prevention Injection 
  • medicated shampoos

Dentals NEW

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. Since your pet must be sedated to get their teeth cleaned there are a few things you need to know.

  1. Pets must be spayed/neutered prior to their dental appointment. 
  2. We require a consult and lab work prior to making a dental appointment. This helps us make sure your pet is healthy enough to be sedated. The lab work results are valid for 30 days. 

Dental cleanings are done on Mondays or Fridays. Pets must be dropped off at 8 a.m. and picked up between 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. Please allow 30 minutes at drop off and pickup to complete paperwork.


New Orleans is hot and humid and our pets probably share our feelings toward the weather here. We offer non specific breed grooming and the ability to drop off your pet on your way to work. Pets must be up-to-date on rabies, bordetella and DHPP vaccines prior to their grooming appointment. If your pet is missing these vaccinations, we are happy to schedule them in conjunction with the grooming appointment. Grooming appointments are only on Fridays and require that pets be dropped off at 9 a.m. and picked up no later than 4 p.m. Grooming appointments includes:

  • bath
  • blueberry facial 
  • shave
  • nail trim
  • ear cleaning
  • anal gland expression
  • bandana and/or bow

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.
