Need help with my Alaskan Malamute puppy

Hello all,
I need help with my 4 months old Alaskan Malamute puppy. I bought him when he was 2 months, then shortly after that he got pneumonia. He spend week at the animal hospital having antibiotics and oxygen pump. After that they kept him for 2 more weeks on antibiotics. He got cleared off for that and the vet said his X-rays are good. Then after being off the antibiotics for a week he started having rainy poop. We thought it was because of the food change so we waited for couple of days but his poop wasnít hanging. Our Vet gave us special food to regulate his poop for one week. The food helped for 2 days and then after that he started having rainy poop again and started doing it even more often throughout the day. We tried over counter medication for diarrhea from PetSmart, but it didnít help at all. Vet tested his poop for worms, but it showed that there are none. At this point poop was rainy for almost 2 weeks. The Vet gave us Metronidozole Tabs to stop it, but it didnít help at all. At this point I also started giving him some Probiotics. After using them we went back to the Vet and they suggested doing abdominal X-ray, which only showed gas in his intestines. Then we decided to try giving him Fenbendazole for worms for 3 days, and Tylan powder for a week. After that poop started to be normal for 3 days, but since today he started having his rainy poop again. We are still on Tylan Powder for 3 more days. Also, around week ago we started cooking for him white rice with chicken and carrots, and stop giving him any treats. For the whole time of having his rainy poop he remains full of energy and still have appetite. The Vet is suggesting that he may have twisted intestines and wants to do X-ray with barium, but it doesnít sound right for me since my puppy is not in pain in any abdominal areas. He also doesnít have any blood in his poop. At this point I feel so helpless and have no idea what could be wrong with him. I donít want the Vet to keep on doing bunch of not needed test and put him in more stress because of that. Also, he is rapidly growing now and because of all that rainy poop he is so skinny. Any help or advises would be highly appreciated. Thank you!
