Mazie’s Mission Heartworm Treatment Protocol and Pricing

Two Injection Immiticide Protocol:

This treatment calls for two injections of Immiticide/Diroban. The dog will need to be on Doxycycline (or Minocycline) for a 30 day cycle. It is required that the dog be on the antibiotics for a full month prior to the treatment. The dog also has to be on an Ivermectin based heartworm preventative for 2 consecutive months PRIOR to receiving any injections. The dog is REQUIRED to be on very strict bed rest for 30 – 45 days to minimize the possibility of complications. The following are the medications required for this form of treatment:

  • Gabapentin (Pain Medication) for 2-3 days following the injection.
  • Prednisone (Anti-inflammatory) for a full 30 day cycle, following the injections.
  • Doxycycline or Minocycline (Antibiotic) for a full 30 day cycle, PRIOR to the beginning of the injections.
  • Ivermectin based heartworm prevention ONLY, 2 consecutive months PRIOR to beginning injections. Advantage Multi is also acceptable.

Three Injection Immiticide Protocol:

This treatment calls for three injections of Immiticide/Diroban, and is the recommended treatment protocol by the American Heartworm Society. Similar to the Two Injection Protocol, the dog is required to be on an Ivermectin based heartworm prevention 2 consecutive months PRIOR to receiving any injections. The dog is also required to receive a 30 day cycle of Doxycycline or Minocycline PRIOR to the first injection. Immediately following the 30 day cycle, the dog will receive his or her first injection of Immiticide/Diroban, and will then be REQUIRED to follow strict bed rest for 30 days. Immediately following the 30 day rest period after the first injection, the dog will receive his or her second injection of Immiticide/Diroban, and will be required to come back for his or her third injection exactly 24 hours prior to the second injection. The dog will again be required to follow strict bed rest for another 30 – 45 days prior to the two consecutive injections. The dog’s condition during the treatment period will determine the length of the rest period. The following are the medications used and pricing for the Three Injection Protocol:

  • Gabapentin (Pain Medication) for 2-3 days following each injection.
  • Prednisone (Anti-inflammatory) for a full 30 day cycle, following the injections.
  • Doxycycline or Minocycline (Antibiotic) for a full 30 day cycle, PRIOR to the injections.
