What was the intestinal "bug"? It may, as posted earlier not be all the way gone yet. Coccidia is common, and takes some persistance to get rid of. Be sure to finnish the treatment all the way, then look into a quality food, free of corn, wheat, soy and by-products. You may need to look at some like Natural Balance for sensitive stomaches.

I would look for a food with a single protein source.. try a food with Duck as the protein source it is very good for dogs with sensitive stomachs... FROMM makes one, so does Eagle Pack and Natural Balance.

I would want to be sure the intestinal problem/bug isn't back or maybe never completely went away.

Agreed. If the intestinal problem is still there, NO food will make a difference.

I haven't read through all of the posts, but...

Have you considered switching to a raw diet? This has completely eliminated loose stools in my dogs and puppies (I breed dachshunds). Also, they poop about 60% less, which is amazing!

As a PP mentioned, try a tablespoon of pumpkin - just the regular canned pumpkin, no sweetener or spices in it.

It could also be worms or coccidia. Try worming her with Safeguard:

Safeguard Goat Wormer, 100 mL - 2226898 | Tractor Supply Company

(I use 1ml per 10 pounds - VERY safe to use and will kill a lot of different types)

If it's coccidia you'll have to get an oral medicine from the vet called albon. It may take up to 2 weeks of this medicine to get rid of it.

Our vet uses Amprolium 9.6%. It is slightly more potent than Albon, and also used for horses. We had a coccidia problem with a puppy a few years ago, and was "ify" when he put her on Amprolium. But it knocked it out really quick.
