      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 .

Lab pup keeps regurgitating

Recommended Posts

The pup keeps regurgitating and then re-swallowing food at odd hours. It's not even immediately after she eats. She always swallows it again...it doesn't even leave her mouth. It's the telltale heaving and then you hear her barf and swallow.

Any reason she would be doing this? Her food has remained the same and we haven't really changed anything on her. It just seems odd.

I would call a vet. She may have eaten something that was a no-no. ie. a sock, garbage bag etc. May be lodged and preventing her from digesting her food normally.

I should add its been going on for closing in on a week...it's nothing acute. She's passing stools with no problem and has a healthy appetite, no other symptoms of anything of concern in her digestive tract have shown up.

I would recommend calling the vet if she has been doing this for a week...as has been mentioned.

Are you feeding anything else to the dog? Meds, treats, etc, that could have changed?

She may just have an upset stomach which can take days to resolve or may have bacteria that could be causing it. I am going through the same exact issue you describe (with my 3 yo lab), but I started a new NSAID the day it first began....so I know what is likely causing the issue here. Our dog has been on white rice and boiled chicken breast for the past 1.5 days and seems to be doing better. You vet may recommend this diet also as it's easy on the stomach and help things get back to normal.....but please consult them! Not to scare you but more serious things could be happening also. We had a blood panel done last week for other reasons...so I know all is well as far as that goes.

How old is the pup?

She's four months. My wife took her in so they could take a look at her sutures and staples from last week's surgery and their best guess is she might be swallowing a little blood and getting a gag reflex. She's lost about half of her baby teeth.

Hopefully this behavior will stop soon. Moods and behaviors haven't changed at all, there aren't any different smells, or change in stools or loss of appetite so my concern level is pretty small. I'm guessing it will taper off and end, if not then I'd go see the vet again.

I'll keep everyone posted.

She had a really sick day so we took her in. Vet couldn't figure much of anything, figured it was some sort of indigestion. She perked up a little and my wife and I took her for a walk and she passed a fairly large sock. Not sure how she got ahold of it.

Neighbor said his dog does the same thing (swallowing and passing socks). Apparently they get frequent upset stomach, possibly a buildup of acids in the stomach as a result, and throw up infrequently.

At any rate the behavior stopped this week and she won't be getting anywhere near the laundry!

Sorry I missed this post. Maja hit this right on the head and something all new owners should watch out for. We have had 2 of our sold puppies encounter this. One was almost 2 years old and pulled through after close to $2500 of treatment. The other had a fun and successful waterfowl season at less than a year old and shortly after, tragically did not pull through. Both swallowed something that got lodged in the large intestine and punctured it. Both were diagnosed correctly but only the older dog had the strength to battle the poisoning of it's system.

So my wife informed me tonight that my dog ate one of the kid's socks today. Called the vet and he adviced me to just keep an eye on him for now. If he stops eating or appears sick in anyway to bring him in.

Is this good advise? Not looking for a vet bill that is not required, but want him healthy. Can I let nature take its course for now?

    • First possum I've ever seen in my yard..
    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
