She was having diarrhea and I took her to the vet. They gave her antibiotics and instructed I put her on a bland diet that seems to be helping.  No parasites and her blood work came back perfect.

However she didn’t poop from Thursday night to Saturday afternoon. Now she’s only pooping once a day. It’s more formed but still soft.

Has anyone had this issues before and know ways to help her be more comfortable? Is this normal or should I call the vet again?

Give probiotics.

If you just adopted her last week, I'd give her more time to settle in. It sounds like progress is being made so as long as things continue to improve I think you're on the right track.

Poop once day is fine.

Sometimes it takes time the gut to heal. I’m glad to hear she is still going though!
