Is your dog a large breed dog, 18 months or younger, with sudden onset very painful limping? Don’t think hip dysplasia, think Panosteitis (or “growing pains”).

While not life threatening and self-limiting, you should still see a vet to confirm the diagnosis, and many dogs get relief with short term pain management. Learn more.
