The most effective stain remover I've found is Angel Eyes - which is an antibiotic that kills the bacteria that causes the red stain. I don't feed raw food, but my Hav does have a white mouth and gets stains. I have a feeling if you're feeding raw, you're probably opposed to antibiotics on principle.
But it does work and I tried a lot things before resorting to Angel Eyes. I use it mixed in a frozen peanut butter/yogurt/honey treat. Initially I gave him a 1/2 dose everyday, then eased off when I noticed a difference to 1/4 dose until staining was gone, and now just as needed - 0-2x/wk.
It is an antibiotic, so initially it's going to mess up his digestion (killing the gut bacteria) and he'll have softer stools but giving it with yogurt helps some. The gut bacteria grows back (resistance to the antibiotic) and the stool consistency should return to normal after a few days to a week.
