|Ah. Dandruff can be very connected to environment as well. If you just had a certain allergen bloom in your area, it can cause that. Also, many dogs will get dry skin for quite a while, but unless you really ruffle up their fur it doesn't always show. So probably a combination of factors, including possible stress, and your hypersensitivity to his current well-being.
As far as stomach grumbling, I went the other direction as Maxwell. My guys get gurgley if they don't have enough in their stomach. This can be an issue with raw, since it digests faster than kibble and can take some time for the dog's system to adjust. If this is the case, splitting his daily allotment into 3 meals instead of 2, or adding some fiber back into his diet can help keep him fuller longer. If you have been feeding ground meat (which is so broken down it digests very quickly), try adding whole items you're comfortable with at least once a day.
