Dogs can eat raw meat without it causing a lot of problems. However any unusual treat that the dog gets that they don't normally eat often causes diarrhea in the days following the ingestion. If the meat was not properly handled then it might have been spoiling which might also cause some diarrhea as well. Most of the time a dog's stomach will handle even meat that isn't as fresh as you would like with little problems.
Kaopectate might be able to be used depending on the formulation to stop the diarrhea. Read about this here:
Imodium at 1 mg per 15 pounds one or two times a day can be given for diarrhea for SOME breeds. Read dosage information here that states Loperamide is also dosed at 1 capsule (2 mg) per 50 pounds (25 kg) if over 20 pounds (10 kg).
Some herding breeds like collies can have an adverse reaction to imodium so avoid using in collies and similar breeds.
Canned pumpkin (not pie filling) will also absorb excess fluid in the bowel with just a spoonful added to the dog’s food. Some experts will recommend a bland diet for a few days of boiled chicken and rice. If the diarrhea continues, have your dog tested for parasites such as worms or a protozoan infection such as coccidia or giardia. `
