Have any of you sheppies had this while you were growing up, and how did you get through it? I have it right now and my mom cannot excersise or train me cause I am in some pain! i am 8.5 months old and am pretty tall/75 lbs. I am taking a few supplements and mom is feeding us Raw and some kibble too. But any suggestions would be helpful. Woof!

Vincent had a few bouts with pano. When it flaring, keep exercise to a minimum and depending on where the pain is, try simple obedience routines to do some mental exhaustion. When Onyx is feeling good, try lower impact exercise like swimming.

Check the calcium and protein content of the kibble you're feeding too. It's not 100% proven that high levels of both cause pano, but it doesn't improve anything.

The other thing - if you decide to use pain meds, make sure you keep the precription refilled. We had a hefty ER bill because naturally I forgot and Vincent had his biggest flare on on Saturday night!

I dont have any first hand experiance with Pano but the trainer I worked with did. One of her GSD's grew waaaay to fast for his body to catch up. She had him on supplements which helped, alot. I think the no training and exercise really did the trick though.

Good luck though.

Spencer had a horrible time with Pano...sometimes he'd freeze in place and scream which broke my heart. I had to keep everything low key and at the time the vet put him on Deramax which helped tremendously.

thank you for your responses! I sent you all a bone~woof!! I have been on Nutro Natural large puppy, then large breed adult. Mom is in the process of switching me to Chicken soup for the dog lover and I get a RAW meal once a day, with some yogurt. I just think I am growing too fast for my bones! Now that I am a little older, my growth is slowing , so maybe it will pass soon...dog

spencer, I know how you felt! and I hope it will get better. I don't like the Chicken soup food and am really LOVING the RAW diet! Mom wants to keep me on kibble too so she knows that I am getting a balanced diet. I eat it so fast that I barfed it up this morning-turkey neck-then I ate it again, mom said YUKKKKK but I was in control! Its all goodcheer

I know this thread is old..but i wanted to reply that my boy has the same problems..off and on he is lame in the front and the vet did x-rays and confirmed "Pano" right now he is doing good.He is almost 8 months old and 80lbs. He is my boy and i hate it when he goes through this.It should stop when he is full grown.

Alex had '2' bouts of it. He got some anti-inflammatories and kept "quiet" (if possible) and within a couple of days he was back to normal.

Rook

Big Baby Always- Whining

Nothing to be scared of. Panosteitis stops at 2 years, our vet said, and it was true for Rook. He had bad pain and cried out, which scared us, but the best thing is to stay calm when this happens. Deramaxx for a few days worked great for Rook. It would come back a few months later, and then meds for 3 days again. I am sure the pain is bad, but don't worry, it's like growing pains, and the meds don't have to be given regularly, just when it is occurring, and then the prescription is for about 5 days.dog
