Understanding Pet Vaccinations

Building Immunity for a Healthy Future

Pet vaccinations involve administering vaccines to stimulate your pet’s immune system, helping them develop protection against certain diseases. These vaccines are carefully selected based on your pet’s age, lifestyle, and potential exposure to specific pathogens.

Our Pet Vaccination Services

Tailored Protection for Every Pet

At WNC Veterinary Hospital, our pet vaccination services cover a range of vaccines essential for your pet’s well-being:

Core Vaccines

Core vaccines are recommended for all pets, regardless of their lifestyle. These vaccines protect against common and potentially severe diseases that pose a risk to all pets.

Lifestyle-Specific Vaccines

Depending on your pet’s lifestyle and risk factors, our veterinarians may recommend additional vaccines.

When are Pet Vaccinations Necessary?

Pet vaccinations are necessary at various life stages and situations, including:

  • Puppy and Kitten Vaccinations: Starting vaccinations early in life helps build a foundation of immunity for your pet.
  • Adult Pet Boosters: Regular booster shots maintain immunity levels, ensuring ongoing protection against diseases.
  • New Environments or Travel: If your pet is exposed to new environments or will be traveling, additional vaccinations may be recommended.

Benefits of Pet Vaccinations

Disease Prevention

Vaccinations are a proactive measure against diseases that can be severe or even fatal in pets. By preventing these diseases, we contribute to the overall health and longevity of your pet.

Herd Immunity

When a significant percentage of the pet population is vaccinated, it creates herd immunity, protecting even those pets who cannot be vaccinated due to medical reasons.
