      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 .

Health Question for a Lab

Recommended Posts

Starting on Wednesday afternoon, my 15 month old yellow lab wouldn't eat is normal food...which he usually mows on as soon as I set down the bowl. He's drinking water as normal.

He is also throwing up during the morning and sometimes during the day. It's mostly liquid in the mornings, and if he does eat (usually less than 1/4 of his normal amount) he throws some of that up...but he has also had "movements" that I have witnessed in the yard. I tried to mix in a little rice last night, but he wouldn't touch it.

Also, until this morning he felt like he had a fever, however as I mentioned, it felt this morning like it has gone down.

He energy and willingness to play as not changed one bit. He is normal from that standpoint and still wants to play all the time. He is not slugish, or sleeping all the time.

He may have gotten into something...I'm not sure since I live in Bloomington along Nicollet Ave., things do fly/fall into my yard that aren't usually there.

Can someone give me some sort of idea of what the heck is wrong with my hunting buddy? I plan on calling my vet today to describe what I have above, but I wanted to get some input from someone who may have experienced the same sort of thing.

Thanks All.

Gregg

Dogs get sick and contract illnesses from humans.

With the bug going around I wouldn't doubt if thats the case.

As long as the dog is up on his shots, )Canine Distemper, Canine Adenovirus, Canine Parvovirus) I'd wait and see how he does considering you said "He energy and willingness to play as not changed one bit." If that changes or if he is still sick after a week I'd bring him into the Vet.

Thanks,

However, the issue of shots is what has me concerned...he is going in next week to get all his yearly shots. He is due for them...but him being sick has me concerned that he caught something that might end up hurting him...I don't know.

I have 2 yellow labs and from my experience if he got into something he should be throwing up at least some evidence of it. if the dogs personality is unchanged thats a good sign one of my labs (appropriately named "critter") had to have surgery for an obstruction that would not pass and perforated her intestine but you could tell as she had a sad look on her face and was much less active than usual, if ur dog is having normal bowel movements should be ok sometimes they get into stuff they can pass but it still irritates their system,hence the lack of appetite and throwing up if thats it it should go away in a couple days! my other dog developed an allergy to her food threw up 6 or 7 times a day after the vet found nothing wrong with her we changed her food to science diet and problem was solved! if ur dogs personality changes or wont eat call the vet!

I would just air on the caution, and get to the vet, If there is no problem you can get the shots anyway. Good luck, hope hes OK.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
