      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 .

Pup has the runs

Recommended Posts

I have a yellow lab a little over 5 months old. Yesterday morning his #2 was solid. However, I get home in the afternoon and there is the runny stuff all over his kennel. Mind you he has only had one accident in the kennel before this. Since yesterday afternoon, he is needing to go out about every hour to squat. Is there something I can do to help him out with this?

Can dogs get sick from humans? The reason I am asking is I had the same condition over the weekend (it's going around the family).

How long should I let this go until I take him to a vet? He probably just ate something he shouldn't have...but that is still a mystery to me as to what it could have been.

Thanks for the help!

I've had this problem with my pups. I don't know that they can get sick from us, but I can see it happening. Anyway, we buy the pepto bismal tablets. If it's a younger dog or smaller cut it in half. Put the tablet in peanut butter and they'll munch it down. Works like a charm. Got this from my vet so it is safe for dogs.

My pup had this and my vet said to boil some lean hamburger and rice, separately, and then mix them after they cool. The blandness of them is supposed to calm down their digestive system is what I was told.

When my dog has the same we give him white minute rice for a day or two to get his system back in check.

He may have gotten into something that sent the system out of wack. Happens. My kids once gave the dog half a hot dog and that sent his rear end into hyper drive. White rice for a couple days brings it back to normal.

It took a while but the family now knows the dogs eats DOG FOOD and that is it. No matter how he begs. It is for his own good.

I have also noticed that if I take him to the doggie cutter he gets nervous and this can trigger an "event". If I have something like that planned for him I give him white rice the day before.

You just never know.....it is a big drag.

I forgot about that. That works too. I pepto and do the hamburger and rice. Clears them up in a couple of days.

Posted this simple remedy before but bears repeating as the runs are more common in warm weather. No food for day one, half ration on day two and then resume normal feeding. Works like a charm, doesn't cost anything, and no special preparation of food.

If the rice and hamburger don't work after a few days he could have giardia caused by protozoans. My pup had it twice in 2 months last summer. It can come from waterfowl droppings and some rabbit [PoorWordUsage]. My Vet had to use a strong antibiotic(Flagyl) to clear it up. Next day he was much better. Disreguard if the diet helps your pup.

I would get your dogs feces tested at the vet. It is only $15 at my vet and you will know if you need to let it run its course or need to get him on medication. My dog had giardia twice and with in 24 hours he was feeling better with medicine

    • What lens you use for the night sky pictures? I really like them.
    • And finally some finished pictures. Rod holders in the back rests of the rear dinette. UV lights in bench for charging glow in the dark jigs. Switches next to the radio control the outdoor speakers and the other controls the exterior strobe lights. I have a strobe controller wired into the trailer lights. I did LED strip lights instead of the traditional individual hole lights.
    • I have been building a fish house and have decided to share it on here sense so many of you (Especially Lip_Ripper) have helped me out so much. I used basically all of the same building techniques Lip_Ripper and a few other guys on this site have used. Stole a few ideas from some of you but hopefully no one gets too worked up over that. I have everything except the bathroom, plumbing, lift bed, and awning done. It is 100% a fish house right now, ready for ice and I can't wait to get it out! Frame- 8X21' +4' V Valley Manufacturing galvanized hydraulic Walls/roof- 1x2" rectangular tubing Siding- Flat black aluminum held on with 3M adhesive tape Roof- 3/8" plywood covered with rubber membrane Floor- 3/4" marine grade plywood Insulation- Closed cell spray foam   One piece aluminum wheel wells.  1/4" cedar tongue and groove. At this point I was still undecided if I was going to stain it or not and sense I did end up staining it I should have just used pine. Looking back on it now it could have saved me a few bucks. The start of staining. I used Sherwin-Williams Pecan.
    • Pine County is full of them!
    • My dad made a return trip to the same area yesterday. He saw 3 birds, but didn’t get any shots off. Pretty encouraging he’s seeing a lot of birds in that area. We’re heading up to Grand Marais on Monday for the week, should be good times!
    • Good thing they’re playing the late game today. Give the weather a chance to clear up. As much I like watching games in the rain, 3 weeks in a row is enough!
    • At least the twins won’t have to worry about Detroit being a threat for years to come. Gardenhire and rebuilding just don’t go together.
    • Final 2 minutes of lastnight’s game was pretty exciting. I agree, it’s going to take several more games for the team to really come together. But winning those types of games will make it happen faster!
    • So late last ice fishing season I was looking at underwater camera's and thought I narrowed it down to either a Marcum VS825SD or the Aqua-Vu HD700i.   Now I see Aqua-vu has a new model out this year the HD7i Pro.   Does any know what the differences are between the HD700i and the HD7i Pro ?    Usually I don't like to buy first year products as I like to see them get all the bugs worked out first.
