      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 .

Bag Balm for labs front elbows??

Recommended Posts

I believe that this has been cover somewhere but I've looked through the last 25 pages and couldn't find anything on the topic. What are you doing to get hair to grow back on the elbows of dogs? Anyone ever use bag balm and what have been the results? Granted I know what the causes are but just curious if there is a way to curb it or to get the elbows to look a little better before they get worse.

Thanks!

63 views and no response....I thought for sure there would be a couple of people that would have an opinion on how to improve there dogs elbows when they get all dry and calused....hasn't anyones dog gotten to the point where it's cracks and sometimes bleeds because it's so dry in that area? I just want to know if there is another way to treat other then the product, bag balm....which is similar to a petroleum type product.

Hope to hear from someone.

i have a cream that i got from my vet to prevent the skin on the elbow from cracking. it's just like the bag balm. basically just keep something on it to keep it moist so it doesn't crack.

I use bag balm all the time on my dogs when hunting. It's effective and cheap (from Fleet Farm). It helps with cuts and abraisions from the field. When I do week long hunts I put it on every night religiously to keep the dog from bloodying up. I don't don't go through the trouble of putting it on their elbows. In my opinion dogs that lays on rough surfaces are just going to be bald there. No big deal. I don't think it will regrow hair, but if it make sure to reply here and I'll start using it on myself. smile
