Leg Pain? Pano?

"The other day, I was taking Nour on a walk, and all of a sudden he yelped, and raised one of his front legs. I thought nothing of it, because he was back to normal within 20 seconds. Well, yesterday, I was picking Nour up, and he growled. He doesn't usually do that. And it was whenever I touched his front legs when I was picking him up. Then, today, he yelped in the middle of a play session, and lifted up one of his front legs."

This is copied from another forum I'm on. But Nour is currently showing symptoms of pano... could it actually be? He's been currently growing 3 lbs a week (just about) but he's probably having a growthspurt, atm. He's 4 months old...

Just now he started whimpering when he layed down.... and then started whimpering when he got up. Could he have pano? I need some opinions...

I have a 6 month old GS. Between 4 and 6 months, I recall her having some limping from time to time.
Assuming it's not a splinter or anything else, it could simply be some sore tissure from the growth spurt.
My pup also gained about 3 pounds a week, when she have the tissue pain.
Today, she's fine.
Just restrict her exercise on hard pavement, and try to keep her on softer ground.

Thanks. I actually did check his paw pads, and there was nothing suspicious there.
Thanks. I'll try to walk him in the grass more, rather in the sidewalk.

I gave mine a low dose aspirin when he went through the pano stage, it helped along with some play restrictions.
