Assuming nothing else is going on, I would switch to a completely bland diet (rice and cooked meat with some pumpkin) to settle the stomach. Once poop firms up, I would slowly switch to a one protein/no liver for now raw diet with pumpkin (I go something like 1/4 raw/rest cooked then 1/2 and 1/2 etc). You can also try a probiotic. But that would be something I might try after if the other things aren't helping.

My dogs always get a bland diet (no raw) when they are having poop issues. If they are having prolonged issues - my philosophy is go simple and make changes one at a time so you know what works and what doesn't.
