Dr. Jean Dodds:"The veterinary profession and vaccine industry have traditionally emphasized the importance of giving a series of vaccinations to young animals to prevent infectious diseases, to the extent that this practice is considered routine and is generally safe for the majority of animals. Few clinicians are prepared, therefore, for encountering an adverse event and may overlook or even DENY the possibility.Beyond the immediate hypersensitivity reactions, other acute events tend to occur 24 to 72 hours afterward, or 7 to 45 days later in a delayed type immunological response"
Dr. Michael Dym: "What I have seen in my many years of private practice is that distemper and other vaccines administered to prevent acute illness can contribute to symptoms seen in chronic disease and pathologies. Some symptoms often seen in chronic canine illness include chronic runny eyes and conjunctivitis (tear stains in dogs, dry eye, chronic eye allergies); chronic vomiting, diarrhea, appetite issues; emaciation; pancreatitis, inflammatory bowel disease, GI lymphoma; chronic spasms and seizures (epilepsy, brain tumors); skin eruptions and swelling of feet and red feet pads; itching from lifelong skin allergies; and eruptions around the mouth (seen in lip fold dermatitis). That is, adverse reactions from vaccination may mimic symptoms of the very disease the vaccine was meant to prevent. Reactions may occur immediately or months or even years later."
Homeopathy and herbals can help with these reactions.
IMHO, I would get one of the previously mentioned Pro-Biotics and Digestive Enzyme products.

First, thanks for all the suggestions.
We have not had a blood test since her last round of vaccinations on 8/15. The Diarrhea started around 8/26.
I've tried the bland diet which seems to lead to solid stools during the day, but she still had the Diarrhea at night.
She's on the pro-biotic made by GNC (only thing available on short notice on Sunday when I received the suggestion of putting her on a pro-biotic)
Again, thanks for everyone's help. I think it may be time I give the Vet another phone call.

*For Pets Probiotic Pet Probiotics | Optimal Digestive Health for Pets - Mercola.com
Or this one has both a Digestive Enzyme and a Pro Biotic combined: Wholistic Digest All Plus™
An advanced, cutting-edge, concentrated formula of digestive enzymes & powerful pro-biotics and pre-biotics that provides superior digestive health for pets.
I personally use these products and rotate them.
The other thing you can use, short term, is "Slippery Elm" from a local health food store. It will calm the gut.
Hope this helps!

your vet 100% ruled out coccida and giardia? Sometimes these can be hard to detect in fecal tests.
I would add some pumpkin and cut out any treats she was getting.

I agree not to switch to the Blue Buffalo. If she has a sensative stomach that wont help at all. I am in the process of switching my 5 month old from BB. He has not had a firm stool in a month.
