Vomitting and Dihirea for 3 weeks

I was wondering if anyone has had this issue or any insight for my dog Guinnie.  Guinnie is a female Sharpei/English Bulldog mix and is almost 2 years old.  She is in great health and has no current health concerns other then this.  When she was a puppy she had demodex which has long been taken care of. 

About 3 weeks ago it all started with vomiting.  The first day she would vomit whenever she ate then later that night the diahrea began.  She would need to go out every hour at least.  When I called the vet the next day they recommended not feeding her for most the day and then feeding her rice and chicken for 5 days which we did.  She got a bit better during that time.  During the 5 days she only had a bowel movement twice and it was still very soft.  Tried going back to normal food at the end of the 5 days and it was back to vomiting and full blown diahrea and also had a yellow mucus in her bowel movements.  Then we went back to rice and chicken and took her to vet.  They gave her some antibiotics and checked her out and said she was healthy and to keep feeding rice and chicken and to do a fecal sample.  They wanted 3 samples and since she only has a bowel movement every 3-4 days while on chicken and rice it took a while.  We submitted her fecal sample and they came back today negative. 

Next they want to do x-rays.....  I want this problem to get solved cause I am tired of seeing my dog sick and I am also leaving on a vacation in a week and will be gone for half the month.  Does anyone have any ideas what can be wrong with my Guinnie?

I recently read a research paper on acute diarrhea case and its possible solutions and i happen to find that Zinc, the vital micro nutrient plays a vital role in such conditions and when they are administered along with other drugs show remarkable results. So why don't you also try the same. That had a very cool effect on the receptors of the intestine and is good for such conditions.

My dog just was diagnosed with giardia (but your fecal sample came back negative).  Doctor also checked him for pancreatitis.  Have they done any blood work?
