Question Easton's x-rays with pano

Easton was showing some strange symptoms, and came up that he had Pano. So I didn't like the way he was limping, and had them do some shots on his hips. Good news, I was in fear he had HD, and it came back confirmed Pano. Bad news is as you will see, it is in both hips, and femurs. To make sure we took a whole Femur shot.

What are your thoughts on his hips. Easton will be ten months on the Aug 10. He is 87lbs

anyone? lots of people looked in but no thoughts lol. do you think there is any HD or just Pano?

Looking to have these sent to OFA also for their thoughts. Will repeat x rays in a month to see if any changes to verify with breeder.

No advice on hips, but want to share some thoughts on Pano, in case it helps.

When mine went through it 10 years ago, a holistic vet treated it very effectively with nutritional supplements instead of NSAIDs: fish oil, Ester-C, Glucosamine/Chondrotin/MSM (all human-grade). It takes about a week for them to kick in, but they shortened the duration and severity in each leg quite a bit and my dog continued to be active and playful. Good luck!

thank you Magwart... I have started him on high levels of glucosamine chondroitin sulf human grade. In fact I started to give him mine that I order from Andrew Lessmen. lol don't laugh, his products really are very high quality and work.

I had two of the vets at the Hospital and the Radiologist look at them and they all said it was pano. This is tuff because he is really bad in his hind legs. he will run maybe twice before laying down with the ball, his run with back legs don't really extend. His trot is full though. Just scary because after, I can tell he is really soar, plus he still doesn't eat like he did before this all set in.
I do feed raw though. How do I send these to the OFA?

Thank you, and anyone that has experience with HD or x rays please feel free to chime in, also pano. could use all the help I can get.

Thank you all

No advice on the x-rays but you can give him Arnica for the pain. There is also a great anti-inflammatory called Tasha's Herbsperin that BNaturals sells. Only Natural Pet also has Get up and Go which works well too.

There is a form on OFFA.org. There is a section for hip dysplasia. Fill out that form, your vet will have to sign as well.
Then mail that form along with the copies of Easton's X-rays to the address listed on the form. They normally mail results back to you in about a month
I can't comment on his hips because I am no expert, but I hope this helps otherwise!

PS...sorry haven't responded to your email, been under the weather.

Not a problem. Hope you feel better soon. I'm sure your baby is all over you. Even Easton just knows when I'm upset and he will not leave me be at those times lol.
