15 week Choc Lab-3 weeks of loose stool! Help!

I have a 15 week choc lab and she has been to the vet 3 times in the last month with bad loose stool. I feel so bad for her and she is not getting better. I'm not sure what to do or if their is something else I should try.

3 weeks ago she was up every hour or so crying to be took out and had very loose stool, basically green watery stool. That morning I took her to the vet. They gave her fluids in a camel pouch thing and methronidazole, and a shot of antibiotics as well as two cans of WD. The WD did major help but now two weeks later she has really runny green stool.

Once the WD was out they told me to feed her chicken and rice. She was ok on that not that great though. 4 days on chicken and rice I added about 20 pieces of puppy Formm and she immediately ran outside with running stool. Could it be her food? She loves it and I have heard great things about it.

Yesterday she had a shot appointment and i brought up that she wasn't getting better. The vet gave me floria florda(sp?) to sprinkle on her food and more methronidazole. She is still on chicken and rice and about 20 pieces of formm puppy food and that's still not helping...any suggestions? Should I take her back to the vet today?

We leave for the beach for a week on Saturday and I don't want anything bad to happen there!

Should I switch her food? Add pumpkin? I'm lost!

They tested her and everything came back normal...
She was fine on the Formm for the first 2-3 weeks once I switched her to it. She is okay when taking the chicken and rice but it's still not that great of stool.

I think maybe I should just try a different brand of food with the chicken and rice and see if that helps. What type of food for a large choc lab puppy would be good. I really did not want to feed her a poor food.
Finally it seems like I've figured it out! I didn't really think too much of changing her food for a few reasons...one, she loves it...two, it's a really good food! Seems she couldn't handle something in it...thinking maybe the protein level? But finally, she is doing awesome on Regal Puppy-a local store and I went over a bunch of food and she swore by Regal so I gave it a try and instantly she is doing better! Hasn't anyone used Regal or have thoughts about the food? Thanks!
