      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 .

Affordable Dog Vet

Recommended Posts

Hey all-

 

I currently reside in the Metro but I'm looking for a great vet that doesn't break the bank. I have friends up Crosby/Aitkin that seem to pay a 1/10 of the bill I pay down here...with way better care. I'm willing to drive I currently live south metro but again, I'm willing to drive. I'm also considering just using the vet near Crosby/Aitkin for annual visits when I'm up that way but our dog is getting old and need a couple extra visits a year.

 

Thanks,

CC

From what I've seen it seems the key is to get out of the city a little ways.  A friends dog needed some sort of dental surgery and the quote from the local Twin Cities vet was crazy.  They were able to find a vet about an hour outside the metro area that did the surgery for a fraction of the cost. 

If you're already up in the Crosby area from time to time it might make sense to do as much of the vet stuff as you can while you are up there.  You may still need to do a local trip close to home if something is a more immediate need that you can't schedule but at least you'll save money on the stuff that you can schedule. 

 

Or if you're in the south metro you could call around to some vets south of the metro and see what they charge for the annual exam type stuff, might be able to find something a little closer to home.

I think all of the vets in the metro area got together for a meeting 10-15 years ago and decided to jack up the prices substantially.

Good luck.

Faribault or Owatonna not that far down I-35. Check to see who's down that way and give them a call. But I must note that ALL vet prices are much higher than they used to be.  And if you think you have it bad....take a sick dog to a vet in Phoenix!!

Can you say "second mortgage"?

St James vet clinic. Well worth the drive and they have people from all over southern Minnesota bring their pets in for care.

I really haven't done any comparison shopping related to price, but we have been taking our pets to Heartland in Faribault for 20 years and would never consider going anywhere else.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
