Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
The rice itself should not harm him past causing a GI upset. The squatting you have been seeing is intestinal cramping due to the diarrhea and it will resolve with time.You can help to calm the diarrhea faster by switching him to a bland diet of boiled chicken (lean turkey, lean ground beef, etc) and canned pumpkin. This should be fed exclusively until the diarrhea resolves and then a 5-10 days slow switch from the bland diet back over to his regular dog food.
