Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
Since viruses do not respond to antibiotics, can you tell me what treatment the other dogs are on? Did their vet put them on antibiotics (which would increase our concerns that this is actually bacterial)?
What color is Sophie's stool?
Any blood or mucus?
