hi, i woke one day and went to take him on his 1 mile walk and i seen him limping on his front right leg. i took him to the vet and they said he looks great but he is having some pain that front right leg. they gave me some pills 6 days later right leg was great stronger then ever, but 1 day later he is having pain in left front leg.
someone said it's growing pains in the front legs and can go from one front leg to the other and can last from 1 to 5 months some times but does go away with rest and time.
what do u suggest
Hi Travis What you're describing definitely sounds like 'growing pains' to me. It's often seen in large and giant breed puppies during the most vigorous stages of growth - and your Rottweiler pup is showing classic signs and is the right age.
Panosteitis is the correct name for what causes these intermittent episodes of pain/limping, and it's basically inflammation in the growing bones. It can range from mild to severe, and is generally seen in puppies between 6 and 18 months old, and more often in males than in females... this is why I said your pup is a 'classic case'!
You may also notice some swelling in the affected joints from time to time, .
Although it looks (and is) painful, Pano isn't usually a serious condition and the majority of pups outgrow it as they mature. If your pup gets a lot of pain or severe limping your vet may prescribe corticosteroids or anti-inflammatory medications, so if you're concerned or he gets worse, have your puppy examined again.
