I know when my dog has giardia even the bland diet isn’t enough to clear up the diarrhea. Plus, if the diarrhea only starts when you add kibble back in, it seems to me that the kibble might be the problem. Does he have any food sensitivities?

I think antibiotics are way over prescribed (for dogs and humans) and if it were me I would try everything else first. The internal medicine vet I spoke to said metronidazole can “reset” the bacteria in the GI tract which seems like a risky thing to do, in my opinion.

One way to know if it is food allergies is to try a hypoallergenic kibble. My dog has been on Royal Canin HP for years because it is the only thing he seems to tolerate. It’s a little pricy, but if your dog does well on it you can do an elimination diet to try and isolate what foods might give him trouble. Good luck in figuring out what’s going on, I know it can be frustrating trying to pin down the problem!
