Possibly Pano

DD, 14 weeks old is limping on and off (front legs), So I guess were stuck with Pano.
Insurance doesn't kick in until next week so after that I'll take him in.
I have ordered a herbal supplement from Natural Rearing and he is on 2 X 500 mg Vit. C per day. Gets 1/2 raw and 1/2 quality Large Breed Puppy kibble from various top brands. Anything else I should know that is helpful?
I limit his exercise to self limiting on soft soil here at home (being with me while working on our acreage) plus the needed socialization trips which I keep short if on pavement.
He is his normal, happy, witty self.

I would probably switch to adult kibble.

Doesn't the large breed puppy have less calcium than the adult?

When Bear had his bouts of Pano as a puppy, I looked at what I was feeding him and made sure that the calcium and phosphorus levels were low. Besides lower calcium I was also told to feed lower protein levels as well.
Look at the Leerburg site, they have some good info on the subject. I hope DD feels better soon, it's no fun having a ball of energy held back by Pano.

He grew almost 6 pounds in two weeks! So i guess Pano is a possibility. Will have my vet see him next week if it continues.
