I haven't found any reference to the study, though I really didn't look, a quick google search found that Rotty people have heard the same thing:

Pano and high protein - Rottweiler Discussion Forums

WVGSD My friend has battled pano with her GSD and uses the Duralactin Canine. It is an anti-inflammatory supplement and not a non-steroidal. Another friend has a mule that is severely arthritic and he gets the Duralactin Equine. Now, he trots around the pasture in much more comfort.

All the dogs' symptoms went away and didn't reoccur.
This is from Foster&Smith:

************************
What is Albon?
Albon is a prescription antibiotic drug. It is used for the treatment of certain bacterial infections as well as treatment of coccidiosis, a protozoal infection of the intestinal tract.

So it is an antibiotic. I am hesitant to go that route.

Got to go tonight, but maybe I can find the study. I have used it once on a dog that had no symptoms but the vet said she had pano via x-ray. I did not re-x-ray though, so I don't know if it was actually effective. No symptoms before or after the albon.
that would be awesome if that could help him.

wolfy dog Will look into the fish oil.

Magwart Many years ago, when my guy went through that, I went to a holistic vet for alternative options.

She prescribed a BIG dose of fish oil -- more than just a couple of capsules. I can't remember the dose now (it was 2003!) but I remember thinking it seemed like a lot.

She also suggested Ester-C (not regular C) and glucosamine/msm/chondroitin.

We saw results after about a week. It shortened the duration of each leg's episode dramatically below what people usually report (no more than a week per leg, once the supps kicked in).

We did not need NSAIDs. Once the supps kicked in, he had a little hitch in his gait, but he was up and playful and feeling good.

I'm sorry I can't help with doseage. You'll have to work that out with your vet. The idea behind the fish oil was that it's a potent anti-inflammatory, and Pano is inflammation.

Even walks cause severe limping. We encouraged ours to rest. He must have been in pain, because for the most part he did. When he started feeling better we knew. All his energy and puppy antics cam back.
