is it possible to have coccidia for 7 months?
scoope ,

First off avoid the steriods for now...

Yes , it is possible to have coccidia for 7 mos.

I find Vets do a lot of guessing when they have no clear test results.

Mucosy covered stool with blood and strong odor sounds like coccidia or giardia. Both of these parasites have very similar symptoms and sometimes a stool sample will not test pos even if the dog has the parasite.

Do you have access to Vet type meds?

The sulfadimethoxine ( sulfa drug ) will treat the coccidia. Giardia can be treated Flagyl , Panacur or Drontal Plus. We have a lot of information on our site here about these and other parasites. As for the colitis path I just do not know enough about your dog to say , however , what we see the most is either coccidia or giardia around here.

Would you please say what drugs your dog was treated with from the start?

If it was my dog I would treat for coccidia and giardia and see if any improvement. More information on this if needed........

If I left anything out please post any questions.
