I may have missed this, but was she ever tested for c-diff (Clostridium difficile)?

Also, I would definitely ask a holistic vet about Fecal (Micro biome) Transplant! Sounds gross but works to rebuild the good bacteria in the gut!

Fecal Transplant: An Amazing Cure You've Probably Never Heard Of

Micro Biome Restorative Therapy Healing The Immune System - IVC Journal

I believe carmspack is doing a study on this.

@Momto2GSDs I would think that it would have showed up on her many fecal tests if she did have it.

That sounds like an 'interesting' procedure LOL!! I will have to put that on the list to investigate.

"currently the most accurate method for diagnosis of C. difficile-associated diarrhea is the detection of toxins A and B by ELISA"

Does any of your records specifically show this test or comment about c diff testing?
I believe your vet would have had to ship this test/sample to somewhere like Texas A&M: Fecal ELISA for Clostridium difficile toxin A and/or B - Texas A&M Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences
