Sounds a little like what my puppy is experiencing, except it's just her fronts. She's 6 months old and this has been going on for a bit over a month now. Two weeks ago I decided I'd cure her with radiation and took every possible radiograph of her front legs (9 different views, plus one of the hips for fun). I didn't see anything wrong with them, so sent them to a radiologist to look at. She didn't see anything either (didn't see evidence of pano, but couldn't fully rule it out either). She's been on Rimadyl and Metacam (at different times) and I don't think either have helped.
So...I'm left with growing pains. I have the pup's aunt and I remember her limping on the front end at about this age, too, but I had always assumed she hurt herself since she was such a hard charger (Piper isn't that way, so I don't think she's hurt herself).
Hope your pup feels better soon (and my pup too!).
