2. I have no experience with chemo,

but I do have experience with specialists. And that experience is that they are very expensive.

I also have not had dogs, but have had 2 cats with cancer. My first questions were about the odds of chemo working for the particular cancers that they had. The odds were not very good, and I chose not to try and put the cats through it. The decision is so complicated, just as it is with humans. Make sure that you get as many answers to any questions before you make the decision to spend the money and put the pet through it.

I do know that there is someone here in the Pets Group who is going through this right now. You may want to look through the posts (it has been recent) to find that poster, if they don't reply to this OP.
