(Also known as "long bone disease," "wandering lameness," or
"pano.") Most commonly seen between the ages of five to 12 months.
Pano is caused by excessive bone production on the long bones.
Normally, a dog affected by this condition will grow out of the
problem, but it is painful.
Diet is thought to be a contributing factor in the
development of Pano. High protein puppy diets may make the puppy
grow too fast and increase the chance of the pup experiencing Pano
which is also sometimes described as "growing pains." Pano can
also show up in any leg and may come and go without warning.
Puppies usually completely outgrow Pano by the age of 18 months
and it rarely goes beyond two years.
