Dog has IBS and diarrhea. Could it be a bowel obstruction?

I have a 3 year old Boston Terrier. He has IBS. We saw the vet last Monday. We increased his prednisone to bid 5 mg and Flagyl bid for ten days. He was doing great and for two days had two large formed bowel movements. Over the weekend, he started with diarrhea again. Pure liquid but only twice per day. He is eating and drinking. Vomited yesterday for the first time in 4 days so we started daily cerenia. No vomit today. He isn't as energetic but still wants to play and has gone on walks. When he has had IBS flare ups in the past, he wouldn't eat, would be febrile and he has had no temperature. Just shaking sometimes and still wants to eat and drink. He also was tested for Giardia and parasites which is negative. I am wondering if it is possible that he could have an obstruction even though he has no tenderness in his belly and has had a few normal bowel movements before going back to having diarrhea?

Our 14 year old australian shephard was just diagnosed with

Our 14 year old australian shephard was just diagnosed with Lyme last week. We originally took her to the vet due to vomiting & lethargy. X-rays of her lungs/heart & belly did not show any blockages/masses. She's been on medication for a week now (doxycycline for lyme & medication for issues with her esophagus), have changed her diet to boiled chicken & rice (doesn't like the rice) and she still continues to have gurgling, drooling and sometimes clear regurgitation.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?Customer: She is eating & still shows signs of wanting to eat. She doesn't like to lay with her head down as it appears it is uncomfortable for her.
