For some reason, the perscription diet EN seems to work best in mastiff puppies for diarrhea.  Unfortunately, testing is costly and some times the cause is never found so I would rule out the most easily correctable things first such as parasites, viruses, shunts, and pancreatic problems.  I also feel that when a reason cannot be found their may be a genetic link.  The problem with leaving diarrhea uncorrected is that the bowel may telescope and this needs emergency surgery to correct and often a bowel resection.  You can try digestive enzymes ( Natures Farmacy) added to the food because they sometimes help but ususally not for long.  My immediate recommendation would be to stop all food except for EN and continue testing for causes.
     Unfortunately, I have had a lot of experience with diarrhea and surgery with one of my mastiff puppies.  I hope this helps.  Good luck.
