Our expert says:
I suggest that you visit your local vet and get the problem diagnosed and treated. As you know young large breed dogs are predisposed to a condition called Panosteitis. This condition can cause intermittent discomfort or pain with associated lameness, loss of appetite, lethargy and a low grade fever. Treatment involves the use of anti inflammatories, rest and dietary changes.
I do hope you get the problem resolved.
