New Puppy; poopy content

Has anyone ever experienced a boston with colitis?

We just got her checked out, and there's no parvo or any parasites, just a lot of soft pooping (in small amounts with an occasional spot of blood). The vet just has me giving her small doses of pepto bismol to see if that will calm things down, but no such luck. I read up on her symptoms, and they seem to indicate IBS or colitis...

I was just curious if anyone here's experienced that with their puppies; if it's just something to do with the breed; and/or if you knew of anything that I could do to help her out?

Thanks so much! I'll be sure to post pictures soon!
