loose stool. Brought on by infected anal gland medicine?

My dog had an infected anal gland so the vet injected an ampicilin based liquid into the gland, which is an anti biotic. a few weeks later she had bad poops, looked like oatmeal. Vet gave her Flagyl which cured this but gave her real loose poops. Tried chicken and rice, did not work. after a couple of weeks, tired a probiotic and seemd to help, then sulphasalazine, but poops got worse, so am now doing probiotic with her regular dog food. At least it seems consistent, loose, but formed. Vet has checked for parasites, but none. Do not want to change her again. How long should I keep her on probioic? Could the anal gland shot caused this?
