Dax has bouts of pano since he was about 6 months old. He's 13 months old now and just had another flair up. Hopefully this will be the last bottle of rimadyl I have to get refilled. Originally he was thought to have a sprain because it was triggered from him trying to do a flying tackle off the couch at Shasta. She saw him coming, moved, he landed pretty hard. He was later xrayed to determine if there was a break or if it was pano.
With Dax, pano doesn't slow him down. Least this recent flair up hasn't. It can affect one limb or multiple limbs at one time. I usually keep him on the rimadyl for a couple days past when he stops limping to help keep the inflammation down. When I take him off it, I don't allow any strenuous activity for about a day to watch him and see how he's doing.
