      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 .

Medical kit for the gun dogs,what to buy??

Recommended Posts

Benny

I was in Gander today looking at the kit they sell for $40.00, it sure seems a high price for just a few items.

Online at Gundogsupply they have another kit by the same company that has a lot of stuff but it is $79.99.

I don't have a problem spending this amount to insure my dog will make it to the vet.
But I think there is a better kit out there or at least some one here has a personalized kit they use.

I am looking for info as to what to buy and put in the kit,and where to get the stuff at.

Thanks, Benny

Iodine, alcohol, superglue, a staple gun, pliers (porcupine quills), gauze, medical tape, and sharp scissors. If that can't fix it, it most likely can't be fixed. wink.gif.

Gundog magazine used to sell a kit also but I don't know if they do anymore. Foster & Smith probably do too although they're usually overpriced. Also don't forget to add stuff needed for human first aid. Much of the human first aid stuff can be used on dogs as well. Also add vet-wrap to the list, bacitracin, and saline or some other medical solution to rinse out wounds. I've learned from experience that it's also smart to have a de-skunking kit with as well.

De-skunk recipe: 1 quart of 3 percent hydrogren peroxide (available from any drugstore), 1/4 cup of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate for you science types) and 1 teaspoon of liquid soap, such as Ivory. Mix and immediately apply to the stinky pet. Rinse thoroughly with tap water.

If you have a good vet you could ask what they recommend as well.

In addition to gsp's items I also have a powder material to stop major bleeding (used by the military) called Quick Clot.
Also try to have an idea of vet's in the area ahead of time.

A note on the homemade solutions using Peroxide - don't mix it ahead of time, it will blow up like a shook up can of pop. I carry Skunk-Off just in case.

Peroxide and a little salt is good to have on hand in case your dog gets into (eats) something it shouldn't. Couple caps of peroxide down the throat and a dash of salt on the tongue and he/she will be hurling in no time.

I had to use this trick when my lab swiped a pound of bacon off the counter. Saved his life and me a couple hundred bucks at the vet!

There is a great website called Gundogdoc.com that has tons of good info on it. There are a lot of articles in the library.

There is also an extensive list of things you should have in your gun dog med kit. You can get it if you click on this link. It will be in the library section.
