      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 .

Limping dog?

Recommended Posts

So recently my dog has developed a limp. He's a 10 m/o choco lab. We had him out with a yellow horsin around in the woods. He must have stepped on a stick wrong, cause he yelped loud. He seemed fine after awhile. A week later we went on a long walk and I noticed on the way home he was limping slightly on one side. Visited the vet and was told to take it easy for 2 weeks. Well after a few days, the limp became more frequent and prominent. Mind you the limp has never been continous, only once in awhile. So we went in for xrays, they came up ok, they've been sent out for a dif. opinion, which we are awaiting. The vet told me about 10 m/o labs some times can get what I understood as pitting on there joint bones. Which would require surgery. I'm hoping not, cause I'm paying for my wedding and I do not make that much money. My main question is: Do dogs have growing pains??? What could be the problem? Thanks for reading this novel!

I would think at ten he should be done growing unless he's gaining wait. See what the vet has too say. I hope all goes well with your pooch.

I have a 2 and 1/2 year old chocolate lab and he had a bad limp about 2 months ago. It went away after about 2 days, so I didn't think anything of it. Then it happened again a couple weeks later, same side both legs. He didn't whine at all, I felt his legs from toe to hip and didn't notice anything. I brought him in and the told me he had lyme disease. I went grouse hunting last September up north and he told me it was probably from a tick up there.

He gave us some pain relievers and antibiotics. The limp was gone the next day and hasn't come back.

GL.

I have a 5 yr Golden who developed a limp , took him to Vet who prescribed glucosimine supplement . Still limping after two months ,went back again and they recomended a specialist . Took him in and he has a torn ACL , scheduled for surgery in June to the tune of $2200.But the good news is the surgery is 95 % effective .It just breaks my heart to see the big fella limp around. The rehabilitation period is lengthy , about three to four months .I just hope all goes well .

He's 10 m/o and almost 70lbs. He's not chubby at all. I'm hoping for the best! He brings so much laughter and fun to the both of us!

One of the first signs of Lyme desease is a limp.. Hopefully your vet checked the dog for Lyme..

Sorry, miss read. 10 months I'm sure he's growing. I would have the Lyme check done if they haven't already.

I bet a dime to a dollar it is pan-osteitis. The "Pan" is more or less growing pains. VERY common in labs (especially larger males) gennerally shows up between 8 and 12 months with 9-11 months the most common.

As the bones grow, they need to fully form and have some 'hollowing' within that causes pain. It generally reveals itself in the final flush of skelatal growth. As the bones create density the pain subsides. It will sometimes travel leg to leg and will manifest itself over a few weeks time from a duration of a day here to a day there all the way to a few weeks of gimping around.

Many vets now-a-days treat it as Lyme disease as the symptoms are quite the same. I'd make sure the vet uses the new 'snap' test to 100% prove Lyme's before treating for it.

Good Luck!

Ken

    • I’ve heard people have been getting cited for not bringing up their lines to go their buddies houses less than 200 feet away.    What I haven’t heard is the reason why this legally different than having a tip up outside your house.  I won’t argue that it is different, just haven’t heard why, and what notification systems make it or break it.   Its another situation where the use of technology is moving faster than the laws.  I agree with Pro V: contact the DNR before you have to try to explain it on the ice.  Or maybe you’ve had to do that already.
    • Got another good ride in yesterday ,,, Almost took the same route as the last time I did the Tac but took a wrong turn and put on a few extra miles but still and enjoyable ride ,,, Had lunch at Side Lake and then headed out to the Bearskin trail ,,, Nice trail flat, straight and fast ,, A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way ,,, I think every one enjoyed the ride and trail conditions ,,, As I type the snow is falling and Im sure trail conditions are improving 
    • Good question to ask the warden.
    • I can't think of one reason to ever have a gas auger again... I get around 20 holes per battery this time of year with a lazer 7 inch
    • WAIT FOR IT Here is James Vladyka's story: This is one of my best friends. We grew up together and have made some crazy memories over the years. He joined the Army shortly after we got out of high school and there was many years where we had to make the best out of a few days of leave that he would get to hunt and fish.   To many years have passed 2 tours Iraq, 3 tours Afghanistan and a few years private contracting he has served our country proudly. Now he's retired and we are making more memories again.   This was another battle to add to his long list.  Brock landed this beautiful Pike through a 6 in kdrill hole on a 20" Jason Mitchell meat stick with a Clam Dropkick tipped with a white Super Jamei on 2 lbs CPT line.   The 14 inch white Crappie in it's mouth was placed there for a size reference. The assist goes to another one of my good friends not pictured Blaine Goad. He reach down the hole and help her come topside

    • They love them, I used to get 40# sacks for $16 in Thief River Falls at Hunters Outlet. Haven't had to work up there for a couple years now, it was a great buy.   One draw back was the small moths coming from the bag in the warm months. Came back from fishing in Alaska to a garage full of them one time.   
    • If I leave my 2 lines down when I leave my fishouse and go to my buddies house say 75’ away they are considered unattended and illegal, but what if the lines are on buzzer reels and I use a baby monitor to listen for a bite?
    • Yah, I bet I coulda looked that one up myself, eh? 
    • The Air fryer XL was 120.00 and the Air Fryer Oven was 160.00. If you Google Power Air Fryer or put a .com at the end you should find it. 3 or 4 easy payment of $39.99 depending on model and free shipping.
