Arrow Panosteitis, Nupro supplement and CaOx stones/crystals? :)

I recently posted re: growing pains/pano

I have been supplimenting my boy's food a few times a week with a bit of Nupro since I brought him home (just a sprinkle as a young pup, now onto 1/4 scoop provided 2-3 times a week)

According to the packaging it contains: (per FULL scoop)

Ester-C (300mg/scoop)
Glucosamine (500mg/scoop)
MSM (300mg/scoop)

as well as other "all natural" ingredients. The three listed above seem like they should all assist with side effects of Pano.

Does anyone have any input on this supplement helping with Pano?

I have started giving him 1/2 of a 500mg Vit-C tablet on his "odd" days when he isn't getting his Nupro.

Also has anyone had a problem with CaOx stones/crystals from Vitamin C supplementation/over supplementation? Just curious to see if anyone has experienced that as well.


Thanks!

When Gracie got pano, I inquired very directly of the vet, and he absolutely 100% assured us that it is nothing we were doing or not doing, or feeding or not feeding. (Feeding a high grade food with moderate parameters, not grain free.)

I don't think the supplement you are giving is likely to do any damage, but the same vet, re Gracie, as Diva has some arthritis, tells us to wait until she is about five to start glucosamine and the like, as her body will produce it just fine while she is younger.

I would not worry over the amount of C in 1/4 scoop of the supplement you are giving (75 mg), relative to the size of a Doberman.

We were easily able to see the pano in Gracie's x-rays. You can give painkillers for it, though I chose not to do so on an everyday basis, as she did not have pain on an everyday basis. When she would indicate pain, I'd give them to her for about three days, then leave off until and unless she indicated more pain.

It should be good to be Dog.

I figured x-rays to be unnecessary. He hasn't broken anything and the hips in his genetics have been good to excellent.

I figured I would ask about over consumption of vit c and its correlation to CaOx stones. I do not believe my "dosing" of his daily supplement to be harmful, but beneficial in all departments. It is for the very reason that he is just a pup that I don't give more than 1/2 of the scoop once a day - trying to keep it to 1/4 scoop as best as possible.

I would actually up his vit c intake to 500mgs twice a day after morning and evening meals. It has been found that a lot of puppies affected with bone diseases have a shortage of vitamin c.
