Bloody diarrhea with inflammed ileum

Hi,
I am new to the forum and was wondering if anyone had any advice for me since my regular veterinarian is out of town and I have seen three other ones that seem baffled by my dog. So I have a 2 year old chocolate lab that does not have any health problems she is an indoor dog and only goes outside on a leash supervised. She developed nausea and vomiting on 10/8 and was drooling and vomiting with diarrhea all day. I took her to the vet the next day and she was treated with sq fluids, cerenia injection and diagel. He also did an xray of her abd and it was normal. She got worse the next day and was foaming at the mouth and hiding in her cage. She then developed bloody diarrhea too. I took her back to the vet and they gave her sq fluids, Carafate and flagyl. She somewhat improved and stopped vomiting. I also changed her diet the rice and steamed chicken. She ate it at first but stopped eating and the bloody diarrhea worsened. So I took her back to the vet 10/16 she had another xray which was again negative and blood work which was all normal cbc, lytes, lfts. I was told that day to take her to the vet hospital for an ultrasound which I did and it showed inflammation of her ileum and a few enlarged lymph nodes one of which was biopsied and was negative. She had B12 and folate and her B12 was slightly low. She was treated with a B12 injection, more flagyl, probiotics, panacur and hills digestive id diet. I am following everything and my dog is improving and acting like normal but there is still some blood and the stool is loose, brown with some blood. The vet hospital that I took her to she saw an internal medicine vet and she was not really sure what was going on with my dog. She said maybe she may need a colonoscopy or a biopsy of her colon. My question is how long should she have bloody diarrhea before I should do additional testing and has anyone every seen something like this? Sorry for this being so long. Thank you.

Did you ever find out what was wrong with your puppy? Mine has been having similar symptoms and I've been going crazy with worry.
