Our 10 month old Labraodoodle Sophie is suffering from either bone cancer, osteomyelitis or panosteitis, so says the vet. She seems young for cancer. There is extreme swelling on her right radius with unusual bone growth seen on the x-ray. Her temps have been as high as 105. Does anyone have or had this issue with their young dog?

RE: panosteitis?

I've seen all 3 in a dog that age.

Your dog needs a bone biopsy and culture ASAP.

RE: panosteitis?

What was the diagnosis? HOD is a common problem in that area of the radius in young, large breed dogs that age... usually a radiologist can diagnosis these problems without having to do a biopsy, but interested to find out what is going on...
