Could be a lot of things- none good- take him to a Vet- that is what they are educated and trained to do-

There is a Vet in Saskatchewan who has done much research on this problem. This was written up in Gun Dog Magazine some years ago. The website for this research is shown above.

There is a follow up article on the problem that suggests possible treatment options. On the first link click on other articles and then click on EIC update.

Very interesting article this is the first time I've heard of this problem with labs. My wife and I just rescued a 8 month old female yellow she is very fit and full of energy I excercise her almost daily with no problem. I've had her in the field once fore several hours with no sign of fatigue. This pu is my new second best friend and I hope I'm not faced with a problem that the nailer is having. You have my sympathies nailer and I hop you can get your dog well quickly. I've owned three other labs andwhen faced with a big problem my vet has always sent me to a locla vet school for help. One lab had a hip replacement the other had cartilidge removed form a front shoulder both were back in shape in no time. One surgery at Southern University of Illinois vet school theo other at Universtiy of Wisc Madison take your dog to a good vet school they'll know what to offer as help. Good Luck and I hope it works out for you and your Black Lab.
