Feeding Your Pet After Its Upset Stomach

I would love your suggestions about what to feed a dog who's recovering from a bout of upset stomach---no chronic conditions, just the occasionally bout of mild doggie dysentery.
Our vet has always recommended hamburger and rice, but do you have other mild, appealing ideas while the furry members of the family get back to normal?
For example: is yogurt contraindicated? It was recommended to prevent upset during a recent course of antibiotics Ben had over the summer.
Couple spoons plain yogurt on a saucer is good,so is the rice mixed with some plain poached
skinless chicken breast or a plain scrambled egg, ie: no seasoning or S & P.
Rice is my go to starter,with cooked chicken liver,ground beef or chicken,ground or not.In that order.Yogurt is a close second,egg,third,because my dogs and cats don't like them as much.
Our vet recommends cottage cheese and rice. About as much as he would get in dog food. At the other end of our street we have a dog breeder/trainer. His dogs go to the military, gov't, police, etc. Very high end dogs if you get what I'm telling you. Anyway, he too used rice and cottage cheese.
Both feel at least 24 hours before food is also a good idea.
