Maybe a certain ingredient doesn't agree with her that's in one anmd not the other ?
I was thinking exactly what doberkim said-- it could be the change itself making the dog have the runs. I certainly have a dog I have to change quite gradually or he'll get the runs (which I must say don't seem to bother him in the least but since I am the turd patrol and the bum washer I'd prefer to avoid)
I know most raw feeders are all about variety variety variety but that really doesn't work for all dogs. Some dogs just do better being fed mostly one balanced food (wether it's premade or wether you grind/prepare your own) and variety might be used best by adding a meal here and there or making SMALL changes of ONE ingredient-- especially with some of those premades with all sorts of ingredients in them. If I was you I'd go with a much simpler raw diet with your sensitive tummied dog.
I just about fell down when I read the label of Nature's variety lamb patties -- there are 4 or 5 different types of eggs and a zillion other things.
