Hello. I am sorry to hear that Tig is having some trouble. I see you originally requested a vet, I am not a vet but I have been a veterinary nurse for 27 years. I would be happy to help if you like or I can opt out and send this to a vet that is online to help you.

If you would like me to help could you please answer a few questions for me.

I see in your question that you have seen a vet, can you tell me what they said and what testing they have done?

Any recent changes to her diet, including foods, treats or human foods? If she is on a special diet now were there any changes before the diarrhea started.

Any new stressers in her life?

Does she ever eat things she should not including toys, clothing, plants outside etc?
