Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 11 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue and as I am typing out a response.

Is your dog on monthly heartworm preventative? I ask because they also protect against intestinal parasites. When was the last time your vet checked a stool sample for parasites? How long has the diarrhea been going on?
