dying loaches

Just treated 7...now 5 loaches for ich for 1 week. Two started getting skinny real fast but still had their appetite. The store i bought the loaches at said to now treat all for internal bugs. Did that with kanacyn at half dose and all fish stopped eating. Where going on day 5 with no eating. The two that died would not stay with the pack but would sit out in the open breathing hard. They both had very rapid jerking movements prior to death. By the way, these guys are just 1.5 to 2 inches in length. The water is pristine now. Whats wrong here?
