The dog park toy- thief!

|So the vet called me back and she says there is nothing wrong with him. He still has some coccidia in his poop, she said, but since his perscription just finished, she wants to see if his immune system will take over. She said to call back if his poop got loose or anything changed.
Well, last night, for he had a loose--but not too loose--poop, so I told my hubby if his morning poop was similar or worse, I was taking in another sample. This morning he pooped and it was firm, and then we played and walked around for about 20 minutes, and then he started wiping his butt on a neighbour's lawn (they have a dog who he loves) and then he pooped again, but this time is was looser, and ended off with a lot of the yellow mucus again. Then, he dragged his but some more, and let out a litle more poop with was even looser, but still not liquid.
My hubby says not to worry, because the dog is probably fine, especially since the vet said so. I don't want to keep annoying the vet, but I don't feel this pooping is normal. The only thing I can think of to be causing this is either the coccidia (but when he was on the perscription, his poop was nice and firm) or from switching foods. I have been doing 1/2 cup of the old food to 1 teaspoon of the new, so I didn't think that would be enough to upset his belly.
