So sorry to hear she's still feeling bad..poor girl, been thru alot hasn't she? :(

Orson sheds like that too and he's on good food and fish oil and everytime i clean
(weekly) behind his bed there is a line of fur, looks like so much but i think some of these
bullies just shed alot more than others. I brush him often too.
If it was just shedding i'd say not to worry but the diareaha is concerning.

Has she been checked for worms since you got her? Could have some intestinal worms.
The fact that she keeps having diareaha is concerning, not just your average stomach bug
that goes away in a day.

Sure hope your vet can figure it out and she gets better!

I found this on a website. Explains the hair loss, she's losing nutrients
due to cronic diarrhea. So that is a secondary condition.

Chronic diarrhea is an important sign of intestinal disease in the dog. Persistent diarrhea can lead to weight loss from poor digestion and loss of important nutrients. Chronic diarrhea can lead to loss of body condition, development of a poor hair coat, and may also affect appetite and activity levels.

Did the vet say that it was the worms that caused the hair loss, too?
I suppose the hair loss came from her losing so much nutrients due
to diarreah.
Whew, glad it's only worms after reading about what could cause cronic diarreah. Some causes were really life-threatening.
She will feel better in no time!
