Default Dog with IBD- any suggestions?

I have a 15 lb schnoodle 3 yr old who has lower bowel IBD- all other problems ruled out. This started about 1 1/2 months ago with not wanting to eat- soft loose stools with blood and mucous. Vet recommended low fat- high fiber diet. I started him on NB diet formula which worked for about 3 weeks then symptoms came back but not as bad so switched him to Nutro diet food which the vet had recommended- also it is lamb based as opposed to NB chicken based and my dogs seem to do better with lamb. Well he still has occasional soft stools with the blood and mucous and a few times not wanting to eat- have not completely transitioned him to new food. So I started doggie probiotics - probiotic miracle by nusanta- don't know if this is helping yet. I really want to try to maintain him on food and not start prednisone since he is so young. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks. Oh also vet always wants to give science diet prescription diet food which I hate because it has corn and other not good things- anybody tried this or royal canin?
