We finally got into a room and the doctor came in to look at him. It turns out that the doctor that checked Rusty was one of Marvin's distant cousins. He took one look at Rusty and said right away that his leg was broken. So the doctor took him to the back and took some Xrays. Sure enough it was broken. Rusty broke both of his bones in his leg straight across. Doctor Lunt said that Rusty's break was in a good spot and a good break. He said most likely that it would be healed with a cast. So they gave Rusty some pain meds and put a splint on his leg. After 3 hours of being at the animal hospital it was time to go home.
Doctor Lunt wanted us to go see a specialist to make sure that Rusty's leg could be healed with a cast. So we made an appointment to get him checked. Lets just say that for Rusty to get his broken leg fixed properly cost the same amount as Marley. It's insane how much they charge for those things. Even a cast was out of our price range. We talked to the specialist and decided that the only thing we could do for Rusty is keep him in a splint and hope it heals right. They said that there is a chance it won't heal properly and that he might have to get his leg amputated. So Rusty is on strict bed rest for 8 weeks and if it doesn't heal and we have to amputate his leg we will love him just the same.
