      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Bathroom Concern

Hey guys I am just in my first week with my new springer. She is 11 weeks old. I just got her last week. I noticed that sometimes when she goes to the bathroom. Sometimes it is kind of runny. Is this common. They told me that she was just given some dewormer right before I picked her up. It has been like this since I got her. She seems to act completly fine. And seems to be doubling in size everyday. Any help

Several things can cause this issue. "Maybe" the new "enviroment" has gotten her overly excited or worried being away from the litter and upset her stomach. "Maybe" the breeder gave her a different food than you are feeding now. "Maybe" it's possible the kids are feeding her scarps from the table? "Maybe" the treats given to her are more or not the same as she is used to? Usually it will clear up quickly, see the vet if it has'nt in a few days. Just my two cents.

I agree, wait a couple more days. If it doesn't get better than see the vet. Lots of new changes and new stress will do that to a dog.

Congrats and good luck with your new springer.

She is fed the same food. And I have no kids, so she hasn't been fed any different. I mean it's not like diahrea or anything. The last couple days she seems to have had a normal one, then she walks like another five feet and the next one is a little less solid then the first one. She has been drinking alot of water though. Not as much as you have stated in yours though. I would say she is drinking about 2 or 3 cups a day.

Probably a puppy parasite. Lots of different intestinal bacteria(s) can form in a puppy... especially under stress. A 10 day regimen of medicine should clear it up... Bring a fecal sample to the vet. They will have an answer for you in no time. I see you're from Cottage Grove, Try Dr. Cederstrom of Park Grove Pet hospital. They'll straighten the pup out right away!

Good Luck!

Now today it has been just fine. So who knows. Labs are you familiar with park grove? I still haven't chosen a vet yet. Someone suggested them and carver lake in woobury.

They are both very good vets! Smart too... (they both have Labs out of my dogs grin.gifhehehe). My choice is Cederstrom @ Park Grove, because he is close to home and I can openly challenge conventional vet practices with him and he is honest and forthright in his answers. He has also earned my deepest respect as a vet. DR. Cederstrom has done everything for me the last few years including saving 2 of my whelping females! I have total confidence in all that he does.

Dr. Gugisburg @ Carver Lake is a bang-up guy himself and is a hardcore hunter, so he is really into sporting dogs. I have never used his practice, but I would not hesitate to do so. He came over to Park Grove to take a picture of his pup being born (C-section) and when very severe complications set-in and Dr. Cederstrom needed another vet to assist, he jumped right in at no charge! The 2 of them are friends and talk highly of each other, so I don't think you would do wrong at either place! Tell either that I gave them high marks!

Back to your pup... I'd still take a stool sample in if you even see it one more time. Take it from that stool... My last lab pup did the same thing, runny stools and then fine for a day or two and then back again... She went through this twice as a pup. Eventually they tend to outgrow it, but I still treated it and it turns around in a hurry. It is inexpensive to get a fecal exam and the meds if needed...

Good Luck!

Hey labs. I just thought I would let you know. My dog started getting the looser stools again. So I brought her in to carver lake to get her checked out. Everything came back negative. Thank god. I just thought you might want to know that Dr. Gugisburg left carver lake. I guess he opened up his own vet clinic somewhere by bill's gun shop.
