Anyone have experience with dog having "hypertrophic pate dystrophy" or HOD?

Sorry- its "hypertrophic osteodystophy" - darn auto correct... My 5 month old Leonberger has been diagnosed with this. Poor guy was a happy very active pup until 3 days ago. Now he's in much pain and has a fever. He's on anti inflamatories and anti biotics. If anyone has experience with this, I'd appreciate knowing if you found something to make the pup more comfortable, how long it lasted and that your dog recovered well from it.

This is a problem in weimaraners, but I have not had one get it thankfully. It is similar to Pano in a way, but it is much worse and cause lasting effects to the dog.

It is currently under DNA testing for weimaraners.
