      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

luckycrank

i have a 9 yr. old english setter female that has had ear infections from a 1 year old i have brougt her to the vet numorous times (15 approx) over the last 8 years they continue to tell me this is a common with this breed.

how ever i have a 3 yr old male setter that has not had a problem yet. my local vet has prescribed OtoMax as well as another product called Gentocin both seemed to work at first but have proven to be useless after awhile

i was under the imppression that OtoMax is used for yeast type infections while Gentocin is used for Bacterial infections any other products i could reccomend to my vet?

thanks for the input

Setterguy knows quite a bit about this problem. I can't recall the whole story, but he had some ear infection issues with one of his dogs. There was some other underlying problem and once it was diagnosed properly and treated the ear infections cleared up.

Hopefully he'll chime in.

Ironically enough the dog that had the ear problems wasn't my setter but my 11 year old Vizsla. He had infections since he was a pup, went to various vets and all did the same thing, treated the infection. It would go away and then eventually come back. Poor dog, his ears were constantly in pain and while I treated them, I'm sure they were constantly sore. Finally one vet said to me, " Well yes he does have infections but what is causing them is an ulcer in his ears." Once we treated the ulcer he hasn't had an infection in over 8 years. My setter occasionally gets infections, most of the time when a seed or piece of grass makes its way into the ear canal while hunting or training. I try to do an ear flush after a run in the woods or field to dislodge any debris that may have made its way into the ear. Moral of the story I guess is always get a second opinion on a problem with your dog. I always figured that the vets knew what they were doing, I guess that wasn't the case.

I have a golden retriever that has had ear infections on and off. OtoMax has worked, as well as some other ointments. One of the keys I have found is to use the ear rinse/flush whenever he's been out in the rain/snow, and his ears might get wet. That has helped prevent a recurrence.
