      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

    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
