If the diarrhea is still persitant beyond meds I would consider some type of cancer (intestinal or lymphoma). I always hate to bring this up but any I've had with persistant diarrhea (after rounds and rounds of meds) has had some type of cancer. If it was bacterial or otherwise the meds more than likely would have taken care of it.
IBD (a lot of times could also be early stages of lymphoma)also from my experience. We've had those that just thought IBD ended up being lymphoma (two intestinal/one all over), one liver cancer (hemangiosarcoma)all had IBD symtoms poops but nothing helped.
Had one confirmed IBD case, he did well on pred the others the pred had no effect what-so-ever.

Just a thought as horrible as it might seem.
