    Default Pano Flare Up Again

    Everything has been fine in the world of Harlea for weeks now until this morning. When we woke up and took Harlea out to potty before breakfast we noticed she was limping a bit on her back right leg again. So we did the tests the vet told us to do when she was first diagnosed with Pano last month and sure enough she is a bit tender to the touch on the long bone just as she was the last time. Just to be safe we took her to the vet again and all agreed after another round of xrays that the bone was indeed inflammed again.

    We knew one she was originally diagnosed that she would continue to have flare ups from time to time until she hits the age of 2. However, this got me and my wife really thinking. We went back and looked at our calendar to compae dates and the first episode last month happened the day after we gave her heartworm pill and the limping this morning started after she had her heartworm pill last night. So we are curious to if this is just a coincidence or if she may actually be having some type of reaction to the heartworm pill. We asked our vets and they didn't think it was likely but didn't rule it out entirely. She has been on Sentinal since her first dose and the first time she was perfectly fine so we are starting to get confused with trying to identify the triggers for this.

    Any thoughts form my bully guru friends is greatly appreciated.

    WOW that's interesting... I have nothing to add, but I hope that Harlea feels better. Can you give her anything for pain?!!

    Yeah. She is back on Taramodol and Rimadyl for a couple of days.

    Poor Harlea. I hope she is back to jumping up to her spot on the couch soon. Interesting though about the Heartworm because I swear when I gave Brutus his last dose he wasn't right for about two days after. I chalked it up to my Brutus neurosis. Maybe not. I will pay attention when I give him this months dose. He is on Sentinel as well

    Hmm , one of our family boxers was allergic to a heart worm medication he developed bumps and itchy skin every time he had a pill
    It might be a possibility of a trigger , it is something to keep in mind ,perhaps maybe consult your vet and try to switch her into different pill
    Hope your girl feels better soon , sending hugs x

    I think you're only going to know for sure if it happens again next month. I wouldn't be suprised one little bit. We dose our bullies (and ourselves) with so many chemicals these days all in the name of science. But it always makes me nervous about what we really are putting in our bodies and in our furkids!!

    Thats what we are thinking as well. I really hate to put her through it again but we have to know for sure.

    Chum isn't right for 2 days after heart worm...listless and diarrhea .. Hopefully Harlea is just having a reaction to that..that would be an easy fix.. Good luck Todd.

    That is exactly the reaction Brutus gets. How could it be normal?

    You know I thought the same thing about the heart worm link had his grand meals within days of his heart work since we only do seasonal doses that was his first for the season. I haven't given him his second just in case. I asked our vet and she said that some dogs do have reactions but she didn't feel that was what caused Loki's. Can you skip a month and see if there is a difference for Harlea?
