Upset stomach after raw feeding

My gsd is 8 months old now and I have been feeding him 500 gm raw chicken every alternate day for 2 months now. But when ever he eats raw chicken in his dinner he does loose stool for almost a day. Health wise he is absolute fine and over active.rest of time he gets yogurts, boil vegetable, cheese, rice.
Does he has some vitamin deficiency which I could not detect? His latest pic..

When my romany was pup she couldn't have raw chicken would end up with runs so I fed her raw tripe beef lamb
She was fine on them as adult she now had no problem with chicken could be just a puppy thing like ours was but I do suggest switching to one of the other raw meats see how it goes

Don' know if you are or not, but feeding the skin of the chicken can cause some dogs' an upset.
I don't think 500 gm (1 lb. 1 oz) is too much.
Could the quality of the chicken be in question?
Are you rotating the meat source so that he is not getting just chicken for his raw meal days? What else does he get on "raw days"?

Off topic....but I noticed the choker on him...hopefully it is only on him while you are training.

Alternating the meats is a good idea but stick to raw if feeding raw. My puppy of 13 weeks also.has a sensitive.tummy and any change causes a runny tummy whereas our older 6 month old GSD can handle anything. However our portions are much larger according to their weight. Our younger puppy seems tp have settled down with the different raw meats and no more runny stools. We feed chicken necks and meat,tripe, mutton chunks, beef, raw veg, olive/flax seed oil, raw eggs with shells once a week.
