      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 .

Dog has problems

Recommended Posts

gonefishin11

My 1.5 year old chocolate lab has had diarrhea for about a day and a half now. 2 nights ago, she swallowed a piece of leather. It passed through yesterday around noon but ever since then she has had runny poo. Every hour or so since then she has had to go out. She tries to poop but only will go a small amount and it is extremely runny.

Has anyone had this problem? I understand that I should probably take her in but the vet will not be open Sunday or Monday. Do I wait this out and see if it gets better in the next couple of days? Or should something be done right away?

I would get her to a vet ASAP!, dehydration would be my concern. It could be possible that it triggered pancreatitis?

I took her in and they gave her some stuff to take. It wasn't an obstruction or anything like that. They said the leather just triggered an upset stomach, which is extremely upset at this point. They said nothing about pancreatitis. What would be the symptoms of that? What should I watch for?

Good deal!!! My friend's dog had a Pancreas flair up from being off schedule on his eating and then wolfing down a smoked dog bone. Scarry stuff, his dog lost a lot of his spunk. The main symptom was diarrhea that kept getting worse, he spent a ton of money having the dog treated over night at the emergency vet.

I keep about 10 + lbs of ground turkey on hand at all times. Cooked ground turkey or beef and rice is the "cure-all" for MOST stomach problems. I have used this method to clear up stomach issues on 5 different dogs in the last 2 years. Works like a charm. Plus the dogs REALLY like it.

She is all better now! Either the pills or the lake or a combination of the two and she is all better, just a little tired.

JB,

The vet gave her some food that was ground egg yolk, turkey and some other vitamin stuff. I think I am going to try to your suggestion and keep some ground turkey around. She loved the food also and it seemed to be better for the stomach.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try

      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
