      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 .

Kennel Cough

Recommended Posts

How many of you have had your dogs go through this?

My dog (4 year old lab) started hacking on a walk on Sunday morning and it persisted more that evening, it does not happen all the time just when she gets excited or is getting excersize. We took her into the vet yesterday afternoon and they feel she has kennel cough. Her appetite is fine she seems a little lethargic however the vet told us not to play with her or excersize her to keep the coughing to a minumum. Vet said should last about 7-10 days.

There are a lot of dog experts who are on FM and I just wanted a "second opinion"

She has not been kenneled recently (since July) and does not have prolonged dog interaction.

She has been vacinated for kennel cough.

Thanks Everybody.

Keep a close eye on her. We have friends that lost a very nice show Dane this summer because of kennel cough. She ended up getting pneumonia and didn't make it.

I don't think it's too serious, but you'll want to watch in closely and bring her in again if it's not improving.

Good reason to get the Bordatella Vaccine once a year. It is a simple in the nose gel and your done.

Hopefully she gets better soon.

Your vet is right. It'll take a week or two to pass if it is Bordatella. My dog had it last year at summer camp. There was a sort of mini epidemic last year with the gsp field trialers. Someone had a dog who brought it to a big trial and it spread like wildfire. It's gross.

Same thing happened at the Fargo dog show last summer. Someone brought an infected Dane. Tons of dogs ended up with it. Unfortunately, at least one that I know of didn't recover frown

My dog did have the vacine for kennel cough, my vet told me it is a lot like our flu shots, it covers the most common strains of bordatella but it doesn't cover all of them, it will also lessen the length of time that the dog is sick with the virus.

Last night she seemed better already!

Thanks for all the responses.

I run a dog boarding kennel and all dogs are required to have bordatella before kenneling. If you are around big groups of dogs you should have the vacine.

    • Has anybody found this particular color of rattl'n flyer recently, i am down to my last 2 and i havent been able to find them in pushing 2 years.    
    • Good deal! Did you leave the ice coned up to help keep a seal?
    • Update: took the shack out this weekend had reflectix and fans blowing in the holes and they stayed open in the -20 windchills 
    •   I also saw a picture with Blair Walsh's face on Marcus Williams as he is missing the tackle.........wide left. 
    • Copied from FB:   A friend of mine has two tickets for the 2018 Super Bowl, both box seats. He paid $2,500 each but he didn't realize last year when he bought them, it was going to be on the same day as his wedding. If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place...It's at St Christopher’s Church, in Edina, Minnesota, at 3pm. Her name is Samantha, she's 5'4", about 145 lbs, good cook too.....She'll be the one in the white dress.
      (Feel free to copy and paste, to keep the laughter going!)
    • The saints player was probably running to where the ball should have been thrown. That throw was 2 yards onto the field, should have been closer to the sideline. It would have been a pretty easy tackle to keep him in bounds and the game is over.. Nothing wrong with a little luck on our side. I thought the refs were terrible all game. Lots of questionable and no calls. That last no call when Theilen got mugged was ridiculous...
    • It was about time something like this happen to a MN team. I will take the luck and the win. This game was not the big game. I've seen us win and lose many divisional games. I have never seen us win an NFC Chip game 76" I was too young for that to count. This weekend i might get all giddy and happy if we win but I sure don't want the let downs anymore     Go the SB win or lose I will be happy to see it at least once
    • I think I'm still in shock that it worked out the way it did. It was a typical Vikings playoff roller coaster that for once ended on a good note. The icing on top is that it was the saints that it happened against.    It sucks that the next game will be in the cold at the eagles but of the 3 other teams left, I'd pick the eagles to play against especially without Wentz.
