I swear by probiotics- for both myself and dogs :-). It takes 2-3 weeks for them to really start working, so it’s something that has to be given daily to have full benefits. For dogs, I give goat Kefir, since goat milk is easier to digest than cow milk. Otherwise, I give human-grade probiotics- the kind that need to be refrigerated and are coated to prevent degradation in the stomach.
Re- diarrhea- have you tried playing with how much fat, you’re including with the raw diet? Some dogs can be very sensitive to that. It may also help to freeze the meat before feeding or blanche it before feeding. Usually having more calcium in the form or bone or eggshell, will help firm stool.
Also, any chance that stress can be exacerbating some kind of parasite? maybe needs re-testing?
