It's not TMI for me as I have had two dogs with SIBO, and have tons of experience with mucousy, at times, bloody poops.
My guess is gastoenteritis from a virus. IF the mucousy poops come back occasionally, then I would run a GI panel at TAMU just to make sure it doesn't turn into SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), which can then turn into chronic pancreatitis.
If the antibiotic (my guess is they gave Metronizidole(sp)) does work and you don't see the return of mucousy stools in the next year, then great. I am not clear on when the pill was given -- my assumption is that you are still giving it??
I would give small amounts of probiotics for awhile to get the good gut flora back in since antibiotics wipe everything back out. I would say it's ok to give now - 2 hours after a meal when the antibiotic is given. The only time it's not good that I know of to give a probiotic is during an acute attack of panceatitis.
Hope it's nothing and it clears up fast.
