    Strange to prescribe a wormer for a dog with chronic diarrhoea unless they suspected giardia but would have thought they would have tested for that. Have they taken a sample? Poor lad; I hope he feels better soon.

    I would change to white fish rather than Chicken. How long has this been going on?
