I did (thanks for remembering) have the same problem with Logan a while back, and they put him on the meds and he was fine.
Although I have not posted it, Lexi has been ill for 2 weeks now too. The day before the wedding she started throwing up and diahrea, so off the vet we went. the meds for vomit stopped it, but diahr. kept up, got more meds, she finished them 2 days ago, but is still not back to normal. Very loose stool (not normal for her) and mucus too. Vet said to give boiled chicken, rice, cottage cheese and active yogurt - as well as 1 tsp of metamucul in her food. she feels her body just needs to get the "infection" out. She is going(just loose), no accidents, eating fine, sleeping fine, playing like crazy - so I am sure it will fix itself soon. Just keep an eye on it. Vet also says it is normal for them to have the blood as their intestines get irritated. You might want to see, if it continues if the vet will test the stool & then give you some Metronidazole - it works wonders with diahreaa.
Keep us up to date.
