      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 cross front legs walking?

Recommended Posts

I've seen alot of strange things over the years but never this one. An older dog late last week was so unstable walking that it literally criss-crossed his front legs walking up to the house. He was walking straight at me and the left would cross over in front of the right then the right would crossover in front of the left and so on.

A week before he difficulty moving and tail was down. I assumes Lymes or one of the related diseases. The vet sent him home with antiboitics for that and and anti-inflamatory. Started him on the antibiotic and as expected the next day he seemes fine, tail curled and wagging.

Last Thursday he showed the walking issue and I started him on the anti-inflamatory and he did improve. So, the thought is maybe a pinched nerve.

Has anyone seen that crossing step before? Wondering if its indicative of anything in particular. Like a ratty tail is a sure thyroid sign.

Thanks

He's mostly Norwegian Elkhound pushing 12 yrs. He's big boy but his weight has been sliding down. Had the blood work done, showed some liver stress which is common when on anti-inflamatories. Right now he's happy and tail up. But I had never seen over compensating to that extent before.

He's doing well right now. Really doubt my vet missed an obvious sign, she's been outstanding for me for many years. It just looked so strange.

To Hartner's point maybe his heels were to high ...hmm Scratch that!

I have a 10 year old lab that started walking similar. We thought Lyme's and then symptoms looked like a stomach issue as she would arch her back and felt bloated.

Vet looks at her for about an hour and says her guess is something in her neck.....X-ray shows a degenerated disk (as much as an x-ray can but I don't even know if they MRI dogs and am not going to find out).

Long and short, give her her anti inflamatories and she's fine for awhile. Whenever the limp comes back we drug her for a week and she's good to go for about a month.

At that time he seemed to have some stiffness in his neck. Doing fine now, enough that he spent the night chewing on a beaver rug. Might be back outside for him.

Think I'll take that same approach, hold anti-inflams for when he shows he needs them.

Thanks
