She woke up limping in pain

    Hello all,
    Eva woke up this morning limping on her front left leg painfully.
    Last night, we had spent that last 3 hours at home before bed time, and she was completely normal, she walked to her bed when i told her to, and she was not limping.
    Yesterday's activity was nothing abnormal, we walked around during the day, no running or heavy exercises, she did encounter some dogs and played along, but also something that happens everyday. And after that we walked back home (2km), and no limping was obvious.
    I touched around her leg this morning trying to find out which part hurts, and it seems its when i touch the elbow she feels pain.
    Any ideas? Should I take her immediately to the vet, or wait for couple of hours to see if she gets better? Could this be a sort of a cramp?
    Right now, she is sleeping again.
    PS: She is 8 months old

    That's strange...with no heavy training??? Two schools of thought come to mind for this...an x-ray or observation for 24hrs,(then if it doesn't get better an x-ray)....

    I'm sure others well will chime in too!...so sorry for your puppy.

    Sounds like it could be Panosteitis. Not uncommon in this breed.

    Though could be a number of issues that cause pano, check the amount of protein and calcium that he intakes.

    Monitoring protein/calcium intake is one way we can protect against pano.

    Agree with pano. Especially when the limping comes on suddenly. The limp will also shift from leg to leg. If it does shift then I would take that as confirmation of it being pano.

    Definitely check her food. Also, it seems like a bit too much exercise for her age. If it is pano you'll want to rest her more.
