Holistic Vets By State

This list was created to assist dog owners who wish to raise their dogs on a raw diet with minimal vaccines and chemicals. This is NOT the list for people who want a regular allopathic vet that pushes kibble and yearly vaccinations.

We have asked our discussion forum members for their input and experiences with holistic vets, practitioners or conventional vets that support raw feeding and a minimal or no vaccine protocol. We have no experience with the vets on this list unless otherwise noted and are not recommending one over another.

We cannot be held responsible or liable for your experiences, good or bad, with any of the veterinarians on this list.

We are providing this list as a service; please do your own research into any health care provider you choose for your dogs.

If you have a vet that meets our criteria that you would like to recommend to others, please send contact information and any comments to Cindy at cindyr@leerburg.com and we will add them to our list.
