Could she have colitus? When I have Florence for a while she had constant very watery poo, though not actual diarrhia, think someone recommend chappie for that.

What about scrambled egg as a short term thing?

I would tend to agree with Tracey, could be colitus. Hope the vets can get to the bottom of it

Glad they have got to the bottom of it, hopefully the antibiotics will sort it quickly

My vet usually recommends Chappie for upset stomach but my dogs are'nt keen on it

My Ollie used to have Colitis...Colitis regularly has blood in it and very watery but can also be mucus like...it is a nightmare when it flares up...Ollie had to be on a prescription diet to control it

We had a foster that was severley malnourished and had loads of stomach problems.

We tried antibiotics and probiotics but in the end it was a plain diet that sorted him out.

he just got rice and natural probiotic yoghurt for a while then bits of boiled chicken or fish added in and after a while added in dry food and that seemed to work.

Poor little pooch xx

I would try and find a wheat free and beef free food as it can trigger flare ups but pleased the vet found the problem x
