Five to seven days after ingesting the oocycts the first signs can be mild diarrhes which progrersses to mucous like and tinged with blood. There is loss of appetite, weakness, dehydration and anemia.
Sulfonamides and antibiotics are used to treat coccidiosis.
As a vet tech, it sounds like Coccidia to me too. Coccidia can worsen with the stress of a new home. I would take in a fresh stool sample to your vet and have them check for it. I hope your pup feels better soon! (((HUGS))))
