Celebrate National Immunization Awareness Month with Pet Vaccinations in Casper
August is National Immunization Awareness Month. At Westside Animal Hospital, we choose to celebrate by educating and reminding our community about the importance of pet vaccinations in Casper. A vaccine contains antigens, which resemble various viruses that are highly contagious to dogs and cats. Vaccinating your pet, allows his or her immune system to recognize and build up antibodies to these viruses, which allows them to fight them off when encountered later in life.
We offer a complete selection of vaccinations which are separated into two categories: core and non-core vaccines. Core vaccines include vaccines required by law and all of the vaccinations we highly urge you to give your pet. Non-core vaccinations are not necessary but can be administered by choice depending on your pet's regular activities and potential exposure to the viruses against which non-core vaccines protect.
Our Veterinarian Will Help You Decide Which Pet Vaccines Your Cat or Dog Needs
If you are unsure which vaccinations your pet should have, our veterinarian can help you determine the best course of preventative treatment. We provide a complete list of pet vaccines including:
- Feline/Canine Distemper
- Feline Chlamydia
- Feline Calicivirus
- Feline Leukemia
- Canine Hepatitis
Vaccinations are first administered to puppies and kittens with a course of initial vaccines and boosters. Adult pets typically receive booster vaccinations annual during a wellness appointment.
