silvertongued17 Yea, I'm going with pano + a pulled muscle. It just seems that with all of our knowledge of nutrition, anatomy, genetics, and breeding stock pano would be a thing of the past. lol. I can't figure out where I went wrong. Anyone interested in helping with the end all be all pano study of the century?

gagsd The quality of the xrays is good, so you could always send them to a radiologist for confirmation. I usually pay between $30 and 50 to send xrays to a specialist for reading.

fredh My Jake turned 3 in September and had his last bout of Pano a few months before his Birthday. The liquid Meds (Metacalm) the Vet prescribed worked fast any time he would have a flare up ( 2 or 3 times a year) and it would usually pass within a day or two. I'm not a Vet or an X Ray Tech so I'm not even going to look at the X Rays.

MaggieRoseLee I think I'd just go with the pano diagnosis and give some rest (aspirin?) for awhile and see how it goes. Seems like no matter what we do proactively, some of our pups just have a bit of pano during the first year.

Good luck!

Xray opinions.... Pano Confirmed?

My 6 month GSD pup Leon was playing outside with his 'brother' last weekend who plays a bit rough. Leon went down, yelped really loud and started limping. I thought he pulled a muscle or had a fracture. He would still try to run and fight with his brother like nothing happened but in the house he would hobble and limp and sit while holding it up slightly.

My other dog, had pano at about this time 6months old, but it was a lot different, as in true pano, bones hurt to be squeezed and would travel. I thought I took care of the issue with a lower calcium food, Wellness core, puppy, for a nice slow growth.

Leon's bones do not hurt to be squeezed, or manipulated in anyway except downward pressure towards the ground. I just got back from the vet who initially thought it was a muscle sprain but looking at the xrays it's hard to deny that it looks like classic pano. If i hadn't seen it happen I would believe it hands down. My question, could it be a small fracture and the xray is showing the healing, or just crazy coincidental timing for pano. Thanks guys.
