Try adding a bit of plain yogurt (a kind without sugar added) to his food.

try to get the kind with live cultures and you can also add in prozyme or a little bit of pumpkin until he is used to the food change.

Switching from a crap food to Timberwolf is a big hit to the stomach as far as type of protein source and level. As mentioned above, the yogurt is a great idea. The big tubs of the organic stuff are pretty cheap and I keep it around for me and the dogs. Some dogs just don't tolerate certain protein sources though. You may want to try the Lamb variety if things don't clear up after the addition of digestive enzymes found in the yogurt. Lamb has pretty much the highest digestibility and is the easiest on the stomach. Good luck with the RAS, lol.
