      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 .

I means a trip to the vet to me. A number of things can do that (hormone levels, mites, etc...).

My chocolate has lost her hair on her hips with both litters of puppies we had the first litter we brought her in and the vet said it was from stress after doing all the tests and this litter it happened again so on the 6 week check up on friday he looked at her again and said stress again.

Do you leave the dog alone in the house or kennel? It could just be separation anxiety. They lick a single spot raw, usually a leg, rarely larger than 2 inches across.

If it is draining at all then search the topic Hot Spots in FM (not on web that'll only scare you) and apply an antibiotic like Triplebac but Bactine is easier to spray without touching the spot.

Let us know what your vet says.

My chocolate did that. The vet said it was hot spots from rubbing or itchich. I agree with leaddog on using both of those products. should get better shortly

I was guessing hot spots also. My choc also gets crazy allergies in the spring. We think it is the grass. I brush him with a ferminator twice a week. spring time for us is fish oil pills, benidryl ointment and an allergy pill after a month every spring he is better.
