Just so you know, not all dogs can tolerate raw food. I am friends with a naturopathic vet who supports both raw and fresh dog food and the bottom line is, the reasons why one dog can't tolerate raw food is not always understood. With that said, you should never combine raw dog food with cooked food unless your dog has a concrete stomach. From what I've read in this thread, that's exactly what you've been doing and it does not surprise me that he continues to have diarrhea. You might want to bite the bullet and change him over cold turkey to raw food using RABBIT and just whole rabbit (nothing else/Carnivora makes whole rabbit patties). Try him on this for at least 2 to 3 weeks and see how things unfold. Rabbit is expensive and is just a temporary food that you can use to get over the initial hump of raw food conversion. It is the ideal food for canines and has consistently solved many problems for exasperated owners.
