while it could be pano, I agree with Jean, and the above article. When my dogs had pano, it was quite visible on xray.
I would suggest to the OP, take those xrays to an orthopedic surgeon. I don't know how many times, friends of mine have had 'issues', vets look at them say nothing is there, same xrays taken to an ortho surgeon who picks up what it is on those same xrays.
I like previcox, however, giving him 'anything', might make him feel better and therefore he'll be full of it wanting to race around, and given that he's very young , same thing.
While it can be difficult , I would do as vet suggests, and try to keep him toned down, walking on leash, no jumping up or down (could further exasperate something if something is there)
When my dogs had pano, it would shift from leg to leg, as your not seeing a "shifting" while absolutely still possible it's pano, that non shifting would make me want to explore it more for something else.
Is he limping on a rear or front leg? If rear, I would maybe suspect ACL, which will not show up on an xray. Also if rear, did they xray his hips?
