      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 .

Hair Loss

Recommended Posts

Anybody know what would be causeing hair loss in a dog. As of now she has starting losing it on her front elbows and her arm pits and pretty much her whole inside of her back legs and just starting to come around to the outside. She does also have some sort of rash on her belly but no where else. Im planing on getting her to the vet this week but hopin somebody had an idea here.

I thought of that but with mange there is always redness and scabby looking and she doesnt have that. Her only redness is on her belly which i think is something totally different than what is making her hair fall out.

How old is the dog and is she overweight? Dogs with thyroid issues can lose hair in those spots as well as dogs with Cushing's disease. Both develop in middle aged dogs and one of the first signs is a weight problem and hair loss in the groin and armpits. Could be allergies. Could still be mange depending on whether it's caused by demodex or sarcoptic mites. They cause different reactions. Could be nothing at all. My dog did the same thing. I went through all the tests and found out he just didn't want to grow hair in those spots. He was normal.

I second Soldiergirls thoughts... We have a golden retriever that had trouble with hair loss. Vet finally figured out it was a thyroid problem. She how gets pills twice a day and her coat is as nice as it has ever been.

I have a Choc lab who this happens to every spring and summer. It has to be some sort of allery. It usually starts on his belly being red and then hair loss starts in clumpy little spots. This year it is happening on his neck. For him I have ruled out thyroid because it happens the same time every year, mange because my other choc lab does not have any issues and there are always together. I always use and anti bacterial lotion on his red spots. This year I am using benedryl to see if it can help him with his scratching which isn't constant but he gets into it once he starts.

Took her to the vet and they said it is allergies most likely to the grass of all things! They gave me some spray and some pills. I too have a another dog her sistyer and she had no problems. Hopefully the stuff works.

At 10 months old she might be starting to come into heat for the first time. Sometimes a change in a female body system can cause a lot of hair loss till they go through the cycle.
