Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Jax needs cruciate surgery   Jax needs cruciate surgery EmptyWed May 01, 2019 1:28 pm

Hey guys, I've honestly ran out of ideas, and it's really getting to me.

I got Jax when he was a little cotton ball pup, he's now 5 years old, and since then he's gained a new best friend, my daughter who is now 2.

About 3 weeks ago, Jax started to limp and we took him to the doctor and the prescribed us Galliprant.  We were put on that for about a week and Jax started to do a little better (so it seemed), he started putting a little weight on his back right leg, but then out of the blue, he went back to putting no weight on it.  
Fast forward a week and we went back to the vet and they believed it was his "ACL".  
I live in a small town on Mississippi gulf coast and the closest place that does the surgery is a state over about an hour away.


I drove out there with Jax and they confirmed his ACL is in fact the problem, they quoted a minimal of $3,700 for the surgery, $150 for the visit, and atleast $200 for the x-rays.   I've always been able to provide Jax with all medical expenses, but this is absurd, I cannot crank out that kind of money, and they don't allow payment plans.  

I've since decided to start a GoFundMe and it raised a little bit of money and I applied for Care Credit in the meantime so I could just take him in, get everything done for him ASAP, and put it on the Care Credit and later drop the GoFundMe donations on the card afterwards to lower the blow.

Well, this morning I was called and denied Care Credit because "I have too many bills", I have no bills minus my mortgage and regular bills that come with a house, and a car payment.

I'm at a lost of what to do, I don't even have enough limit to get the surgery placed on 2 credit cards, and with a 27% interest, it would be a never ending battle.

If ANYONE has ANY ideas that I can try PLEASE let me know.

Thank you all,


SGarofalo

This is a legitimate plea for help from a member in need. It was cleared with admin. I was just too lazy to put it all together and repost myself so I moved it to our donation section.

Update on the situation:

I went to a specialist today and I'm still here, it's apparently not his cruciate ligament as my initial vet thought. It is a tumor on his pelvic bone.

Jax is back there now put under as they were doing x Ray's and I told them to go ahead and check the tumor.
They've only told me so much right now, but so far the options are horrid.
One is a removal of the limb and a piece of the pelvic bone, with a 6 month life span or up to a year with chemotherapy.
If it's another form of tumor, they will remove it, but the process only allows a 1-2 year life expectancy.

They want to do a CAT scan to see if it has spread to the lungs, but they are quoting $4,800 for the scan alone.

I still do not know for certain the full condition because they are just removing a piece of the tumor now to send for testing.
Jax just hit 6 years old last week.

I'm really at a lost right now.
