My Havanaise had diarrhea for about three days and I took

My Havanaise had diarrhea for about three days and I took him into the vet. I did not have a stool sample with me but they did go ahead and put him on five days of antibiotics. Within a day and a half of being off of the antibiotic the diarrhea started again. I waited a couple more days and then I had a sample which I took to the vet but it tested normal. The vet then decided to go ahead and put him on 10 days of antibiotics to see if that would help. He just finished a day and a half ago and again the diarrhea is starting again.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?Customer: LouieJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Louie?Customer: No

My dog, 11 years old, 12 pounds, was prescribed Methimazole,

My dog, 11 years old, 12 pounds, was prescribed Methimazole, 5 mgs. for 30 days, 2 times a day, for chronic acid reflux. Everything I read about Methimazole mentions nothing about acid reflux specifically, however the Vet(this is not a Vet I normally go to) did say it would keep things moving out of the stomach instead of back up into the esophagus. He feels the raw food I am feeding her no longer agrees with her. I'm very skeptical of giving my little Sheltie drugs, especially for that long. Does this sound like a drug that might be used for this purpose and is it safe. Thank you.
