persistent limp? elbow disease?
Hi all, for the past four months our girl (9 months old next week) has been getting a persistent limp. Our Vet gives us anti-inflamms but wants us now to bring her in for x-rays as she believes it might be elbow disease. She's tried a couple times to stretch out our girl's front legs but says there's resistance. We've been on holiday for a few weeks with my sister staying at our house to take care of her, and we've come back to find her limp even worse (we asked my sister to take it easy on her but since our pup is so high energy I'm guessing she exercised her quite a bit so she was more well behaved) so I'm quite concerned.
We're going to take her in to see the Vet at the end of the week and get x-rays but wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this sort of thing? I remember awhile ago seeing people mention something about pano and limping? what is that, and is it common in GSDs? our girl is from a breeder who has been in business 40+ years so I struggled with the idea of elbow disease but recently came across someone with a dog from our breeder who developed hip dysplasia, despite pedigree that shows top hip and elbow scores, so I know anything is possible. My partner is convinced it's her paw, but that doesn't explain why the vet had resistance when stretching our her legs.
Thanks for any info you can offer.
