I've been feeding Rainer Fromm Surf N' Turf. While he absolutely loves his food, he has been occasionally having bouts with slimy, explosive diarrhea - twice so far in the past 4-ish months. The vet suggested that he may have a slight case of IBD and maybe try to change his food. I have tried feeding him Orijen and Acana in the past, both with horrible results. I do not think he is able to handle the higher protein.
He is currently eating 3 cups a day of the Fromm (suggested for his weight is 4 - 4 3/4). I've put the analysis/ingredients of the particular formula he eats below. Anyone have any suggestions on an alternative (other than RAW - no offense to RAW. I would love to be able to have him on a complete RAW diet, unfortunately we do not have the freezer space.)

As a side note: He does get Grizzly Salmon Oil with his breakfast, he is 87ish lbs, almost 14 months old, tried coconut oil for a little while but was worried it was contributing to his diarrhea (did start slow adding about a tsp a week), used to receive Nupro joint supplement as a preventative measure but have also held off on that as well to see how his tummy does.
Sorry for such a long post, and thanks in advance for any help.
