|It sounds like you are adding a whole lot to your dog's diet in a very short period of time. Too frequent changes or too many novel introductions in a short time period can cause stomach upset.
First, I would not give a human laxative. This will likely mess up his system even more.
I would go back to the basics. Make sure you are giving only one kind of premade raw diet right now-- only one brand and only one flavor. Adding in a lot of different types of raw meats at once can cause digestive upset.
For the boneless meat you are adding in, try to use the same type of meat that is already found in his premade. Introducing mutton, then pork, then liver all right after each other is only going to make his tummy hurt more. Plus these tend to be fattier (and so harder to digest) meats. Pork always gives Sabrina horrible gas, for example.
Try sticking to the same routine for 2-3 days-- feed just the premade with boneless meat added to it for 2-3 days and see how his poos are. It sounds like you are giving a lot of pumpkin for a small dog, and too much pumpkin can cause constimpation, so I would cut out the pumpkin for these 2-3 days. Then after those few days are up, see how his poops are after being on a constant diet. If he needs it, try a small bit of pumpkin. My guess, though, is that just a few days on a constant diet with no changes will help a lot.
If your dog appears to be in distress, isn't eating, isn't pooping at all etc, then take him to the vet right away, though.
