Take a sample of faeces to your vet and ask them to send the sample to Vetlab (UK vet lab) for an examination and culture. They do brilliant work on poo and will the lab to speak to. I never treat diarrhoea with antibiotics unless I have a positive culture of Camphylobacter. (common infection in UK) This infection only responds to one antibiotic that is not used a lot.
You get pro-kolin in a powder protexin, use this for at least 3 months. Do not stop even if the dog is better in a couple of weeks, it can take 6 weeks before the gut flora is healthy again. The antibiotics are killing off the good flora and this is why it get better and then worse again. You get this if you treat diarrhoea with antibiotics.
Tell your vet to wake up and get a diarrhoea treatment protocal from vetlab. Next time he will have a clue what to do and save his clients money as well, worming also important. Vetlab should have a good website.
Please email me back if your dog gets better and tell me if "I know my stuff" I'm a man and my ego needs some attention.
