My puppies will NOT go home vaccinated, I am not going into this in any further detail, but if you e-mail me & ask for more information, I will e-mail a couple of articles to you on this subject. I will not argue with you about this. Traditional Vets have most of us so convinced that they need vaccinations, when it is not necessary, & is causing health issues as they age! Sometimes as puppies!! If your not comfortable with not vaccinating,there is a better way to vaccinate. Wait until they are 12-16 weeks of age, their immune system is much stronger @ that age, rather than 6-8 weeks. They will be de-wormed, & they will have a Holistic veterinarian check up, along with a Health Certificate!!They will go home happy healthy puppies! They also will be on a high quality food, you will go home with a bag of raw frozen food, which is available @ many of the pet food stores...Stella & Chewy's Dinner Morsels. They carry a variety of Meats. Notice I said, Meats, not flavors...I would recommend that you wait until the bag I send home is getting low before you purchase another bag, just so its 'fresh' for your new puppy..I am not cutting a portion of the tail off any longer,I do not feel it is necessary to remove something that was put there for a purpose! ; )Generally, the reason it was & is being cut off is for hunting purposes, & it eventually became the popular way for poodles to look. THEY LOOK VERY NICE W/THEIR NATURALLY INTENDED TAIL!
