I wouldn't use rice it is not really going to make a difference. In a few days his system should catch up. How many times has the dog been dewormed? also another thing you can do is soak his kibble till it fully expands so it does not expand in his stomach, that can help with bloating. Also maybe offer a scoop of plain (no flavoring) yogurt with each meal to aid with digestion.
