depending on breed, 13 is pretty old for a mid-to-large dog. Hopefully, the antibiotics will help.  Your vet probably has also suggested to keep him on a bland diet for the poop issues – boiled chicken, white rice. With him being diabetic, go easy on the rice to make sure you don’t spike the blood sugar.
