The antibiotics could be causing Ninja's diarrhea. Here's why: antibiotics kill bacteria in the digestive tract and the drug does not discriminate between good and bad bacteria.
Dogs [as well as humans] need certain good bacteria ["flora"] in their intestines fo proper digestion of their foood. After adinistration of antibiotics, it is often necessary to replenish the good bacteria in the gut.
Our rescue boy, Buster, had several problems requiring antibiotics after we brought him home from the animal shelter. It wasn't until I thought of asking the vet for Probiotics that he started to improve.
Pumpkin can be helpful with loose stools, but if it is not making a difference, you may want to ask the vet for probiotics.
