      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 .

Dog Foot Problem, Prevent licking??

Recommended Posts

My chocolate had been favoring a rear paw occasionally, so when he went in for his yearly vet visit I brought it up to the vet. They ended up being able to take a look at it and he definitely had licked himself a nice sore between the pads of a rear paw, the vet assumed he had scraped or cut it a while back and had just never let it heal properly. The vet gave me antibiotic pills, some drops, and instructed me to do epson salt soaks once a day making sure to thoroughly dry the foot with a hair drier on cool, and my dog was to wear a cone to prevent him from licking his foot. This whole regimen was to last 2 weeks. We are now 5 days in and my dog has figured out how to lick his foot WITH the cone on. I'm not sure what my next step should be, do a try to find a bigger cone (he is 80 lbs, so this cone may be the biggest size already), do I wrap his foot after thoroughly drying with horse wrap? (I'm worried this may not assist in the healing if it is wrapped all the time). Just looking for some suggestions or tips or tricks so I can get his paw back to 100% thanks in advance for the help!

Don't bother with the horse wrap, he'll just chew it off and eat it (at least my lab did). Get some of that spray that keeps dogs from chewing on stuff...I forget what it's called...and spray it on his foot from time to time. The label will say that it's not for internal use but this should not be a problem in this case. Call your vet if you're concerned about using it, but my vet is the one who suggested it for my lab when his paw had stitches.
