onyx'girl then keep her on raw....better than stressing her with a diet change. Looks like you have it under control and then some!

sembry She is getting the antibiotic because of Ehrlichia which is a bacterial disease and I do feed green tripe she also gets Seavive which boosts her immune system as well and a supplement with probiotics in it.

onyx'girl If my dog was having digestive issues, I may go to a cooked bland diet(chicken/rice or beef/rice) with probiotics given but not at the same time as the antibiotics.
If the antibiotics are given for other reasons, I'd continue with the raw diet and add probiotics. Fresh green tripe would be given as well(it has digestive enzymes and probiotics naturally). If the dog was having problems with barf/diarrhea, I'd give slippery elm bark a half hour before feeding the bland diet(after resting the gut for 12-24 hrs)

Harry and Lola I haven't heard that about raw, however my 2 get a probiotic everyday anyway and they are on raw.

graciesmom I feed my puppy raw. I always add a tablespoon of yogurt to her food. When she had a bout of illness requiring antibiotics, I continued to feed her raw, but added a probiotic I got from the vet as I didn't think the yogurt would be enough, against the antibiotics. The probiotic came in a paste, called florentero. You might want to look for something like this.

SuperG From what little I know....I was under the impression that many antibiotics kill bacteria including good bacteria found in the digestive it might be a good idea to include some probiotics in your dog's meals....if you aren't already.
