Can someone please help me, I have two dogs (yes 2) with

Can someone please help me, I have two dogs (yes 2) with diarrhea. My German Shepard (12.5 yrs old)has had it since Monday evening and is being treated by his vet. They have given me 500 mg Metronidazole Tabs. 1 tablet twice daily for 7 days, we are on day 4 and still has the diarrhea. Now my Golden Retriever (6 yrs old) started with it this morning at 12:30am. Her has some substance but the Shepard it total liquid. I have been feeding him boiled ground turkey breast since he started. The Golden has been on her regular food but now I don't know what to do. Is it possible it't the turkey causing this? The Golden has only cleaned up tiny scraps that the Shepard dropped. I wouldn't think that would be enough to cause this. Can one dog get it from another, my Golden licks the Shepard food after he is done. I don't know what do, I have been cleaning up after them throughout the day and now it's time to feed them. I am afraid to feed!!!

I have a 35 lb border collie mix that has been tested three times now and has spirometra infection per stool analysis. I've been told praziquantel 430 micrograms for 2 days.....but I can't translate that into the available products I'm seeing. One person said milligrams and the other said micrograms and I think there's a big difference. suggestions? thank you!

I have an 11 month old male doberman that I am worming.

I have an 11 month old male doberman that I am worming. Today I gave him the recommended doses of Neemax before I noticed that Neemax only covers hook and round worms. I want to give him a dosage of Fenbendazole as well. Would it be harmful to give the Fenbendazole now? The dog has progressively been showing symptoms like weight loss, pudding poop, wiry coat, pale gums and in the past 2 days he has been yawning as if he had something irritating his throat. On May 16th, I took him to the vet and asked for a CBC, (they also did a urine test), and with the results from that test, they gave him a dx of UTI. In the history I stated that I had given the dog a dose of Fenbendazole 2 weeks prior to the visit. I am going to try to attach the results of the CBC so you can see them. At this point, the dog has really taken a turn for the worse and is now severely anemic. Someone close to me thinks it is a genetic problem but I want to try worming again before I decide to put him down. Can I dose him with the Fenbendazole being I already gave him the Pyrantel pamoate?
