      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 .

EIC?

Recommended Posts

I think my lab had an episode of eic today. I dont know much about it so im not sure if it was that or maybe had something to do with heat. I took her the park and played fetch with her for bout 20 min and then came home. I noticed her walking goofy as soon as we got in the house. She had her back legs spread far apart and almost looked drunk. This wennt on for bout 10-15 min then she was normal. Can any one shine some light on this for me. I think Hemi had posted about this disease before. Is there anything that fixes this or is it some thing they grow out of, is it dangerous?

It can be very dnagerous. No cure and they do not out grow it. Most dogs with EIC are relegated to couch service. A lot of stimualtion and/or exercise will bring about an episode. They begin looking drunk and either walk in a stooper or collapse. Once the body temps normalize and they relax they begin to get their faculties back. If you suspect EIC, I recommend getting to vet who is well aware of the disease and the proper protocol for the dog. If EIC is confirmed, a call to the breeder to let them know of a dog from their breeding has EIC and the parents will be hopefully scratched from future breedings.

Good Luck!

Does it sound like that is what it is or could it be something else. She is a pretty active dog and has worked harder than that many times, so i dont know what caused it to happen this time.

It sounds like it could be EIC to me, I have a male who has it. He started showing the exact signs at 14 months old. At the time it was fairly new. My vet did not even know what it was. I came across an article online by Dr. Sue Taylor from Saskatchewan about the disease. My dog ended up being part of her study. Not the end of the world, but a huge disapointment. He is now 8 and lives a good life and still hunts some, just have to be smart about it. I don't want to scare you, but you should get her checked out right away.

Do you know how they test for EIC? Last summer, my 8 year old lab had an episode where she looked dizzy and wobbly for a couple minutes then was fine. Then about a month ago she had the same thing happen only she was in the house and hadn't been exercising. This dog has had more strenuous exercise in her 8 years than any dog I ever owned without any signs of this before last summer. Can EIC show up for the first time in an older dog?

Generally no. But not impossible. There are other conditions that can cause 'wobbliness'. It could be a simple as hypoglycemic. A trip to the vet after another episode should be made so they can do some blood work. The test for EIC is not out yet, so it's best to go to a vet who is well versed on the malady.

Good Luck!

    • Well the big tom slipped away from me Man He was big be was coming i ti my decoys but the hens went the otherway and he turned and followed  i drew back and almost gave it a shot but it was a wierd angle on one knee and i decided to not    i will get him friday when i go out next
    • The strange part is the better teams/points we had in the standings the worse we looked in the playoffs. It is probably a good thing to get some new eyes on the team and see what happens. I think someone else will scoop up Fletcher fairly soon, like players and coaches sometimes a change of scenery is in order. 
    • red polls and purple finches here daily for a while now. not many house finches.  brown headed cowbirds are here. flickers. Saw a vireo yesturday. 
    • Here are some pictures from my hunt.
    • I have not seen a redpoll in over a week
    • The finger needed to be pointed in his direction, after a few coaches got it first.  I keep reflecting back on the team of 2002-2003, Marion led the bunch in points but the rest was either rookies,  hand me downs and two goalies that got hot. Throw in guys that weren't afraid with lots of heart and they made it work.. 
    • Same here I set the blind where they like to be. Even if that is in the middle of a 500 acre sod field. 
    • It just gives me more time to pass on the addiction to anyone I can be to come out. 
    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
