I have a 7 year old standard poodle with on and off again

I have a 7 year old standard poodle with on and off again bloody diarrhea - responsive to flagyl tho. We have had ultrasounds, X-rays, blood work and fecal exam - all normal. The vet is suggesting a colonoscopy. She had a horrid reaction to vaccine for leptosirios when she was a pup - with resulting liver issues. We do not give her vaccines on the specialists advice. Colonoscopy or not? Could anesthetic cause problems? Have to drive 3 hours to vet for scope. Thanks so much.
