Chronos's Amputation

The whole story: On March 25 2017 chronos and I went on a hike for his 7th birthday he ended up jumping up an edge and started limping. We went home and I iced it and a few weeks later he was limping again. This was the first time he went to the vet for this problem they did an X-ray, put a cast on it and gave me some pain medications. The cast ended up leaving him with a blister and his limp had gotten worst. I took him to a second vet and they gave me pain pills and said to rest. It's now been almost three months and I brought him to a third vet were they did another X-ray and everything looked normal. They sent the film to a specialist and they said it looked normal. They gave me NSAIDS and recommended a specialist. He sedated him and did some flexing of his joint and they discovered no ligament or tendent issue. Before he did the joint tap to look at the cells in the fluid build up around the joint he recommended another X-ray. This is when I heard the worst news I could have ever asked for; Chronos has cancer. The X-ray showed his ulna and radial bone disintegrated and this was only in one month time from the last X-ray. He was diagnosised woth Synovial Sarcoma. Unfortunately the only treatment is amputation costing $2700 which absolutely breaks my heart. But first I need to get chest and abdominal ultrasounds to make sure that the cancer hasn't spread costing $700. I have already spend $1700 on his treatments and I've maxed out care credit. I have bad credit and have gotten denied by every loan I can think of. I don't have the money now and I'm running out of ideas. Time is the one thing I don't have.. I'm asking for any help I can get even if it's just a few dollars. As everyone knows I love my dog more than anything and I feel so helpless that I'm not able to help him. Thank you for taking the time to read this and for any donation your willing to give it means so much to Chronos and I...
