We have been struggling with a few bouts of diarrhea with

We have been struggling with a few bouts of diarrhea with both our dogs on and off recently. One had it about 3 weeks ago and got over it without treatment. The next had it about 2 weeks ago and had to go to the vet. She was given Metronidazole 250mg tablet giving half a tab every 12 hours for 8days. Her stools seemed to harden for the last few days but than she had two looser stools somewhat like ice cream consistency and greenish. Finally it seemed to get better but both were displaying sneezing more often and backwards kind of coughing and hacking. Once the medicine was over she was better for a day or two and than the diarrhea started up again along with our other dog. We still giving them chicken and rice and no new food had been added. We took them back to the vet on Wednesday and they did all blood work and full fecal exams and everything came back normal. They were both prescribed the metronidazole for 14 days and put of royal canine food. Stools are back to normal in our male dog but still a little mushy and yellow in our female dog! They are still sneezing here and there and have some eye boogers as well. I thought I maybe saw some sesame seed like white grains in I believe both of their stools. I called the vet and they gave our male dog Drontal Plus 68mg 1.5 tablets and our Female dog Cestex 100mg 1 tablet 1 time. Is there a reason these are different. Could this be something else and should I hold off on giving those dewormers and just stick with the metronidazole?
