She’s going to be 10 in nov

Thankyou so much. They asked me for $5 and I’ve noticed at the top of this page it says free I’m confused
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Is 1.5 the same as one and a half
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

Yes that is correct

And sorry about the website

It is just as confusing to me as it is to the clients
