My 10 month old Max has a left front leg limp, he has been X-rayed and his shoulders and elbows are all good, vet said it was pano back in January but now he does not know what it is as pano will shift from leg to leg but Max is constantly limping on the same leg, so what I am wondering is does anyone have any ideas what it could be? And what do you think of trying a chiropractor? We also have hardwood floors and he could have slipped on them even though I do have rugs down, any help would be appreciated a this is just not right for him to be like this the poor guy...

A left front limp can mean a back right knee (or other joint/paw) issue

I saw good improvement when I took Jax to a chiro. It certainly won't hurt him!

they can but I would advise a veterinary chiropractor.

I would probably see an orthopedic surgeon/specialist first to see if they can diagnose a likely cause. Could still be panno, especially if it appeared so on xrays

There is no evidence of pano on X-rays... The vet I go to deals with a lot of gsd's and my breeder also had a look at the X-ray's, I have kept him quiet, I have crated him but it makes no difference, we do have hardwood floors and he may have slipped the wrong way.. I have rugs down but he can be crazy sometimes :). He does have a bad hip but the vet said should not be affecting his front leg, I have noticed he does not have the same range of motion in his left front leg and he maybe a little tender too, might be a pinched nerve? Will see on Monday when he goes to chiropractor, should be interesting, he is a sweet boy and I love him to death just want him to be healthy!
