6 month old fawn diarrhea help

Hi there! I am on here asking for a friend.

They have a 6 month old fawn. Never had any issues at all. He got an infection in his ear tag and was given a shot of Duraxin.

24 hours later he ended up with uncontrollable diarrhea with slight bits of blood and mucous in it. He was still drinking water and eating just a bit. He would lay down and just poop all over himself. Called the vet and they said to give some SpectoGuard.
They did it and it worked.
The next day he was feeling much better and running and playing. No diarrhea and when he did poop it was just a giant blob of poop and some mucous.

The next day he was 100000% better poops were normal, playing and full of energy.

Then the next day the uncontrollable diarrhea started again. So they did the same as before.

Today they took a stool sample in. The fecal came back negative.

He was feeling better, he pooped at one point and it wasnít perfect pellets but more a ball of pellets but the stool was firm.

About 30 minutes later the uncontrollable diarrhea started again.

Soooo what can they do.

I was looking on the forums here and saw some people have found their deer have giardia and they said itís hard to catch on the fecals.

They have Metronidazole tablets (as others have suggested on ofher forums) and wondered if maybe they should try and give him some but they arenít sure if itíll hurt him to give it to him if it isnít giardia.

So what do yíall recommend?
