LisaT No experience with pano, but be sure to rule out tick disease, particularly if your dog has had exposure. Limping may be on all legs, but often may only be on the leg that the bite was closest to.

Panosteitis

I'm sure there have been many threads about this, but I figure what's the harms in starting another.

I have my 10 month old Bob Barker. At about 6 months he started limping, favouring his front leg. It started off mild and then got very severe. And then disappeared for a few weeks. He then started again after I did some hiking with him it last again for almost a month same leg.
Now I have limited his exercise, and started giving him vitamin C daily and (touch wood), he has not shown any signs in Almost a week.
So my questions are,
Does this sound like pano? .. this is my first shepherd and after 20 years of breeding beagles this is new to me.
What else can I add to his (barf) diet that can help with this and possibly prevent it from returning?
Is swimming an "ok" exercise while he is on a break? Call me dumb, but I figure whole swimming it is more muscle power than bone which is what is being affected by this pano.
And
How long should I be keeping this poor boy from playing with his friends and from taking him for his walks etc. I think this backyard playing is getting boring for him!

Thanks guys!!
