My pups pano was only in his hind left leg and that was all. Once it was gone in that leg it never came back. Fingers crossed it doesn't show up again. Really strange though that he had it at 10 weeks. He was really big boned though.
It lasted for aprox. 3-4 weeks. Since then, no problems.

thanks for the update, I am reliefed to hear that it seems "only" a tissue injury. At least now you have a peace of mind.
All the best

Inasmuch as the cause of pano in unknown, how does a vet diagnose it with an x-ray?
Turk, pano doesn not necessarily present itself on both sides; one of the hallmarks of the condition is that the lameness often shifts from leg to leg as the pup grows.

My vet pressed his leg bone up and down the whole leg a few times until she got to the spot that caused him pain. Did the same to the opposite leg and got no response. So on the x-rays in the spot that was causing him pain there was a little shadow of what looked like a thumb print on the bone. That's what she was looking at.
