My 10 week old puppy has diarrhea since we got him 2 weeks

My 10 week old puppy has diarrhea since we got him 2 weeks ago. He's got plenty of energy and is playful. We changed his food as the people we got him from had him on adult food :S He had solid poops all day about 3 days ago and now it has changed to the worst it's been as it is watery and "jets" out. Like I said, his energy is all there and he's otherwise a playful, happy puppy

My 11 week old puppy had her first vet visit 1.5 weeks ago.

My 11 week old puppy had her first vet visit 1.5 weeks ago. She had diarrhea the first day we had her & didn't eat much but thought it was just stress from a new home. She seemed happy. The vet said she was positive for Coccidia and put her on Albon. She has 1 or 2 days left of medication. She still wasn't eating much and I tried everything even baby food so they told me to give her Nutri Cal twice a day. I have been doing that and at this point she will not eat anything at all. I have been feeding her Hills A/D with a syringe since yesterday. She drinks water and still poops and pees. Today she has a very runny crusty nose. I don't know what to do.

I have a 1 1/2 year old blue nose pitbull who use to be very

I have a 1 1/2 year old blue nose pitbull who use to be very energetic and healthy. About 4 months ago he started having extreme diarrhea, which mainly just consisted of blood and he lost a ton of weight. We freaked out and took him to the vet who told us he had giardia. He put him on a ton of antibiotics, which didn't really help and so we took him back to the vet who then said ok it's not giardia, but we're going to do a whole bunch of tests to see what he has. They eventually came back and told us that all the tests came back negative, so it must be his food (we were just feeding him chicken and rice once the diarrhea started). The vet suggested we put him on this other food but when I looked at the reviews they were terrible, stating that the food was just over priced saw dust filler. So I have put him on probiotics and sensitive stomach food but it's been a month and he's still loosing weight and having bad bloody diarrhea and I'm pulling my hair out about what to do next. We've already spent 4 grand on all the vet bills and he's still not better and I'm at my wits end. Is there any way you can help?
