      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 .

Infection?

Recommended Posts

My dogs upper neck on the bottom side. The fur was clumped together and smelled terrible. The fur had a yellow like substance (like puss) and smelled. This happened in one day - the night before she was fine. We did duck hunt this last weekend and Monday

I cleaned with soap and water; and cut the hair down to the skin. It was reddish and a little swollen.

I then put hydrogen peroxide - and it bubbled like crazy; dried it off and put neosporin over the area with puss.

This morning the puss was back and I did the same thing as the night before.

Any other suggestions?

Did you have an e-collar on her. My buddy had a dog that he left a bark collar on for 3 days straight and the prongs actually dug in and got infected.

Thats a good point Sabo. E-collars do need to be moved once in a while or they will wear through the skin at the contact points. I make sure to try to position the collar and move it throughout the day if the dog is wearing it all day or multiple days in a row.

Staph infection refers to the type of bacteria invading the wound-you would have to have a vet prescribe an antibiotic if that were true--yes they can be a draining "pus" wound

That area has a fold in the skin. Air can't get at it so its a good spot for stuff to grow once theres some irritation. Not a lot of blood flow there either so once a staff infection sets in its that much harder to fight it.

Shaving the area will help, keep the collar off.

Cleaning is good but I don't think an ointment is a good idea.

Well not a greasy one that cuts off more air to the area anyway.

I think you'll need to see a vet and get a specific antibiotic.

well after two days the area is alot better then it was. The skin is a little "red" but the puss has stopped.

The collar has been off and we have not been in the field and most likely will skip this weekend.

She hates the hydrogen peroxide - but does not mind the neosporin. It is high on the neck, so she can not lick it. I did shave the area as best as i could.

I will let everyone know tomorrow.

do not continue to debride with peroxide... once or twice is fine, after that it is counter productive. Use warm water on wash cloths to draw out and keep the area clean... neosporin is generally good, allowing air to the area is also good. If in doubt have it checked out by the vet.

Good Luck!

    • For gills when using live bait st croix spring bobber rods. for gills and crappie when using plastics I use the snitch. for perch and eyes croxton pond rods in light to med/light   I have about 36 ice set ups but I getting rid    Of some  
    • I love my custom Adam Bricker rods.  The guy just makes rods that look, feel, and preform well. Plus he has some really great options like a rod butt that pops out the back with a fish hook remover. You can also get the option of being able to change out blanks if you want. Which comes in handy if a guy goes from panfishing to walleyes. Plus he stands behind his work. The guy is an artist when it comes to building rods not only with looks, but preformance & function. Nothing else comes close to what he builds. With that being said, I do consider them a luxury item.   I have a slight addiction and have about 50 open water rods and 40 ice fishing rods, that range from cheap to expensive.  rl_sd pretty much said it all though. For $30 or less a guy can get a solid ice rod combo that preforms just fine. One of my favorite ice rods is a south bend Rod and reel combo I picked up for $25. It has an 8 ball Bering reel and a ML Rod that works well for perch and walleye.
