Customer Question
My puppy is 9...

My puppy is 9 weeks and has received his first set of shots. He cannot get his 2nd set until Oct 20..can we let him outside to use the restroom, or do we really have to wait until after his 2nd shots to let him in the grass?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with your puppy?
