I can't comment on raw, because I don't feed it for a number of reasons. (My immune system, and the fact that there aren't any limited ingedient commercial raw diets w/o fish oil) But my (holistic) vet is a strong believer that all dogs who are involved in sports or showing should be on probiotics all the time. She says that whether they seem to enjoy it or not, it is STILL stressful to them, just as Christmas is fun for a human, but they are still exhausted at the end of the day. Probiotics make it easier for their digestive systems to continue to work normally in "abnormal" (for the species) circumstances. All three of mine get probiotics every day. They get them AM and PM on show days.
