Dear Alma,

Dogs can be treated for heartworms. You should compare costs which would be charged at a few clinics in your area. If there are country vets nearby be sure to call there. The condition of your dog and how many worms she has will influence the total cost. You might also look for holistic veterinarians too in your area and ask what they would use and cost involved. If there are a lot of worms it can be a problem as they die and pieces lodge elsewhere in the body. Fluids, steroids, and cage rest can add to the cost.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
