      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 .

Recommended Posts

My vet just diagonised that my 10 1/2 year old Lab has diabetes. He is keeping her for a day or two to see how she comes around on insulin.
I'm wondering if any one out here has had a dog with diabetes, and if so can fill me in on what I can expect from her in the way in needs in the future.
My vet will fill me in on what to do with her,but if someone can tell me what they went through with there dog it would be much welcomed info to me.
Thanks in advance!

I had a dog with it I had him on insulin for 6-8 months everyday you need to give them the shot also there is special dog food they need to eat "canned dog food" and its very expensive I forgot how much money it cost for everything a month but it was alot like $300+ a month after the food,shots,dr visits,tests but to be honest with you I wish I put him down the day I found out he had diabates they go blind and their body pretty much goes to mush Its really bad watching your dog slowly die and go crazy and thats what my dog did I wont get into details but his last days were not good I know its hard but to be humaine put the dog down now when its still early Im really sorry to hear about your dog and this is bringing up some bad memories but you wanted the truth on what happens to dogs with diabates I had a cockapoo,cocker spaniel poodle mix.

Too bad to hear. I agree that the food has to change and it is not cheap. The meds will cost too but it will all depend on the way the dog reacts. The quality of life issue mentioned is a big deal. It is a very hard thing to do but it is our job to look out for our dogs. Just hang in there for a little while and see how things pan out.

If it is managable for a while great. You know your dog and will be able to tell if things are not working out.

Good luck. Hope it turns out for the best.

It is with great sadness,a few tears, and a very heavy heart that have to say that I had to put my dog down yesterday.
Her problem was cause by a pancreas infection.The infection caused a hole in the pancreas that she could not overcome.
The pancreas makes the natural insulin in the dog and that infection at first made my vet think she was diabetic do to the high blood suger. He figured it out the next day.
I took her up to the vet last tuesday and never got her back home.That bites!
She was my most loyal and best friend, and I'm going to miss her greatly.
