"4 to 6 weeks" is a looooong time.

Richard went to the vet a few days ago to have his arm checked out. The wrist was swollen, and Richard had trouble getting around, although it didn't slow his pace.

Our vet suspected a break and x-rayed Richard for us, free of charge. It turned out that Richard's ulna was broken, near the wrist.

We couldn't understand why he performed the x-ray for free, but we thought it was very nice of him.

Richard will be wearing this brace for 4 to 6 weeks, and we must return weekly to have it changed since Richard spends a lot of time in water. He has been trying to remove it, to no avail.

We're hoping for a speedy recovery. It's not nice to see him having trouble getting around, even though his pace hasn't slowed.
