I have this dog.
He is going to be 15 months old, every 30 days he begins to limp with his front leg, until when can they have Panosteitis? Is he not very old? I know that Gringo had and my dog's brothers too, but not until 15 months ... until When can they have panosteitis?

I never had one keep pano past 12-14 months. The first dog I policed with kept it until 14 months. I noticed it around six months and it would come and go every month or two. He started off small, being just 6.6 pounds at 7 weeks and would end up over 26 at the shoulders and a very lean 98 pounds. This catch up on size may have been why it developed.
Several dogs that I trained back in the 80s and 90s had it. I received a discount for using a certain dog food that was labeled as a performance product with 30% protein. This may have been a contributing factor. I now feed a lower protein until around 18-20 months.
Last year I was training a young female and decided to increase her protein to meet the energy demands. She went from 26% to 34% protein and within one month developed pano on a front leg. This is the only place I have ever seen it with any of my dogs. Within a couple weeks of dropping her back to 26% it went away.
For those couple of weeks, anytime we would do longer activities like tracking I would give her a buffered aspirin with her meals. This made a significant improvement and for hours would show little or no indication that it was bothering her.
At one year old. Can you guess which leg bothered her? https://www.dropbox.com/s/24cii8ce9vktxav/Munster%20Pano.jpg?dl=0
And now two years. https://www.dropbox.com/s/wde55f8lve05dc2/Munster.jpg?dl=0
