      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 .

Abrasions around Dogs Eye

Recommended Posts

Had a great and sucessful day on Sunday chasing MN roosters. My new 18 month old Lab did very well....he hunted his heart out. We hunted most of the day in some pretty thick and rough areas. The weeds were deep, thick and dusty.

During the course of the day, my lab received many skin abrasions around his eyes from crashing through the weeds, cane and cattails. At the end of the day, this skin area was very raw looking (even bleeding). My question, is there a product on the market to help/aid in the healing of abrasions around the eye? Most healing ointments/products say "do not come in contact with eyes".

His eyes were red this morning and leaking very heavily from all the dust and debris. But he skin around his eyes were very tender and raw. Is there anything special to put on/around dogs eyes after the hunt to aid them in healing? Or, do you just let it go? Thanks for any insight.

I have 2 GSP's and they get pretty raw around the eyes, mouth, belly and knees. My dogs were bleeding also. They will toughen up the more you go. I'm sure the eyes seeping is just there body's way of cleaning the crap out of the eyes. If it were me, I would leave the dog alone. They go through this every year, and after abbout the 2nd time out they are fine. Hope this helps.

Go to your vet and buy some eye wash or opti creme. There are only certain ones you can use... they have to be non-steroid cremes or wash. I generally use some in my dogs eyes each evening before they bed down. Helps relieve the eyes and promote healing from minor scratches on the eye ball itself. It will also help flush any debris out at night. For the raw skin around the eyes, a little petroleum jelly helps. Make sure there is none left on the fur before starting a new hunt as this will just become a debris magnet.

Good Luck!

I agree with deer hunter. Your dog's eyes are just watering to get out dust etc. Mine do so as well for a day or two then they clear. Abrasions will heal too but if it has one that seems to have trouble healing, i put neosporin on them and that seems to work pretty well.

Deerhunter has it about right, I bring some bag balm with for scrapes and such but if you are going to hunt the way it should be done it is hard on dog and hunter, sure is fun though. After a week hunting pheasants my Britt looked like I had drug her down a gravel road for ten miles, when we got home she would sleep for two days straight but she loved every minute of it, of all the hunting I have done I can't think of anything that is more work than pheasant hunting.

i have the same problem and i call my vet and asked her and she said take a warm was cloth and wipe in one direction around the eyes to get the crap away and then it's safe to use neosporan. just done leave a big goop of it, rub it in a little. i also asked her about putting it on my dog's nose and she said it is safe. even though it's is a small amout your dog won't get sick. also she said if it doesn't get better in a few days you should bring her in. so far it has been working for my lab.

One thing that I heard to help prevent injuries like this is to put some petroleum jelly around and under the dogs eyes BEFORE you go into the field. This helps keep things out of their eyes and protects that skin from damage. WHen junk starts to collect on the jelly you can wipe it off and re-apply.

I don't know what type of grass it is, but every time I hunt the stuff my dog looks like Rocky the next day. I always check to make sure seeds aren't stuck in his eyes now. I can usually find the problem right away.

      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T

      Here are some of the toads we have been catching on the Rum River this summer.  The biggest has been 19 1/4 inches.

      I agree with rudrave, a boat will open up a lot more opportunities to fish off shore.  You could get a brand new 16 foot fishing boat with a 25 hp motor and a basic sonar unit with trailer for about $10 grand and that sort of rig would get you on a lot of small to medium-sized lakes in addition to rivers around here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed Hubbard County’s first case of Eurasian watermilfoil, an invasive aquatic plant, in Bad Axe Lake near Emmaville. DNR invasive species specialists confirmed Eurasian watermilfoil around the resort access to the lake. They reported it did not appear to be widespread into other areas of the lake. Eurasian watermilfoil can limit recreational activities on water bodies by forming mats on the water surface, and can alter aquatic ecosystems by displacing native plants. It is typically spread when plant fragments have not been properly cleaned from trailered boats, personal watercraft, docks, boat lifts, anchors or other water-related equipment. Treatment options include selective herbicides and mechanical removal, to minimize the plant’s impact while protecting native aquatic plant species. Treatment is unlikely to eradicate Eurasian watermilfoil from a lake. It may minimize impacts, but rarely prevents broader dispersion within a lake. This new confirmation is a reminder to boaters and anglers to follow Minnesota laws to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species: Clean aquatic plants and animals from watercraft. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keep drain plugs out while transporting watercraft. Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Details about Eurasian watermilfoil and other aquatic invasive species are available at mndnr.gov/ais. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
