Q. Is it ok to feed a dog tuna fish mixed with brown rice ?

A. This isn't a good long term diet as it doesn't have the nutrients that your dog needs. If you are looking for a recovery diet for a few days post operation or post tummy bug then chicken and rice, white fish (cod or coley) or pork and potatoes are blander and better.
