Wanted to add: we bought Nara at 8 weeks old, and there were no holistic vets where we lived in VA. I also didn't know much about the holistic approach, so I found the vet with the best reputation and went to them. She had all of the normal puppy shots. We rescued Paw Paw at 7 months old, so he came with all of his shots already. We rescued Beowulf at 14 weeks old in Oregon, where we were already going to a holistic vet, and he got whatever the basic shots were that were supported by the holistic vet. Kaze was 2 years old when we rescued him, so he already had his puppy shots too. I know a lot of people seem to vax every year. That's what I meant when I said we only do rabies now. Didn't want to confuse anyone.
