My dogs also went through a period of diarrhea. My 1 year old, Bear, loves to chew on small branches that are on the ground. He also chews on mulched grass that has hardened. He’s been tested off and on and also been on Metronizadole a few times.
“Knock on wood” I’ve gotten it under control. I’ve been supervising him when he goes out to make sure he doesn’t pick up things from the ground. I think it’s pretty much a puppy thing and he has gotten better. While he was going through the diarrhea, however, I fed him boiled chicken or ground beef, (making sure to drain all the fat well) rice and Hills Prescription Diet W/D that I would get at the vet. I also sprinkled Purina Pro Plan, FortiFlora also available at the vet. I kept him on the bland diet for several days and once he had a few days of normal poop, I very gradually re-introduced his regular food, Purina Pro Plan Savor for puppies which has a probiotic in it. Good luck
