Hi this is Dr. Sara. How many days ago was Blu dewormed? What medication was she put on to help with the diarrhea?
How long ago was this? If it has been about a week, you may need to get some metronidazole to stop the diarrhea. Also, do you know if she was checked for Giardia? If your hospital sends their stool samples to the lab, it would be checked. If they do fecals in-house, it may not have been diagnosed. I would call and ask to start her on Metronidazole since it sounds like everything else has been done (deworm, food, probiotic). It's time for a course of antibiotics. Hope this information helps and I am available for any more questions or concerns you have. Have a great day!
I am sorry, that is very frustrating. Here is what I would try at this point. I definitely think she needs at least one round of metronidazole, have you tried Purina EN? This is a fairly new diet by Purina (prescription diet) that has been great for puppies and kittens with diarrhea. The other thing is to check to see if she was evaluated for Giardia. The other fecal parasite would be Campylobacter. I recently had a pup with chronic diarrhea, the owners (both mom and dad) were hospitalized and treated for Campylobacter so this is how we figured out the puppy was the carrier. There is a fecal test for this parasite. Talk to your vet about testing for Giardia and Campylobacter.
