      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

    • So Eye guy did you try your nils after frank adjusted it? was thinking about dumping my 6in lazer and my 8in Thunder Bay blazer and picking up a 6in nils.
    • Regardless where you take it, without proof marks of some kind it will be extremely difficult for ANYBODY to state with certainty WHO made the shotgun. To me it has the look of an an inexpensive German gun. I still say your best bet might be research on your own. Check the time period for pin-fires and common makers of that time. But without ANY kind of proof marks it is going to be tough sledding. If a gun has NO markings, not even PROOF markings, it is really at the bottom of the heap. Heck, it might even have been something made right down the street from where you grandfather lived!! Hang it-Don't bang it!!!
    • Well you did say sometimes it's hard to get your point across with this group.
    • Well a few days ago we got hit hard by a good cold front and the temperatures plummeted down into the 50s here in Islamorada, FL.  We also had another reinforcing front back that one up, so things stayed chilly.   The water in the backcountry bays dropped into the high 50s as well in some portions.  Though a day after each front passed the winds laid down and gave way to some epic fishing.  Today I had Pam and Lars down from Arkansas and we fished deep in the everglades.  We got out early and were loaded up with some nice lively shrimp.  When the water temps drop this far, usually everything is pretty keyed in on shrimp - they don't want to work too hard for that meal and expend a lot of energy.  Working them very slowly on the bottom, really just letting them lay and twitching every so often, works wonders.  Once we got set up and the tide started moving in, it was game on.  Pam and Lars each landed well into the double digits on snook, and quite a few 'big girls' for us... fish in the 8 to 12 lb range.  Multiple double headers it was a blast!  We also had quite a few black drum and nice redfish too.  Very good to see the reds as they've been hard to find especially in the summer time, as much of their habitat has been beat up due to algae blooms and grass die off.  But in the winter they do show up in the 'winter time holes' along with their cousins the black drum, snook, and sheepshead.  We also saw several small tarpon rolling about.  I didn't have much hope that they would bite but knew it was a possibility.  We kept throwing in their direction, and soon Pam hooked and landed a nice 25 lb tarpon!  Not to be outdone, Lars got one about an hour after that.  Backcountry SLAMS for both anglers, wow!  We continued catching fish for several hours it was just epic, also got a few trout mixed in which we kept for dinner.  I don't particularly like killing our drum, especially the redfish, due to the lack of numbers... and snook are currently out of season and also more of a gamefish for us too.  On the way home we hit the gulf side to look for some triple tail.  It was so calm and those fish like to lay on the surface near the crab buoys, sunning themselves and waiting for an easy meal.  We saw quite a few but mostly little guys, though we caught several and got one that was big enough for dinner too at least.  Just a banner day out of Islamorada in December fishing.  I have the same crew again tomorrow and then several days open next week, come on down the fishing is great!

    • I’ve never been to Ahlman’s but by the looks of their page, yah, probably a great resource too. Boone’s is similar in respects to offerings and massive showroom layout but I don’t think they have the gunsmithing depth of Ahlman’s.
    • I actually enjoyed this. LOL  I used to dive a lot, but not as good as these did.
    • Didn't you smoke one before watching? 
    • Uhhhhh... I for one am at a complete loss for words.
    • Here is a project for you when fishing gets slow.  
    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
