Dogs Eating Cat’s Food and Vice Versa

Sunday, September 8, 2019
posted by Jim Murphy

It’s a difficult situation with a dog and cat in one family. Dogs rather than cats will be the ones to eat the other’s food. Not only is cat food not good for dog’s, your cat will have difficulty staying nourished if you don’t solve the problem.  It’s not a good idea to let the dog eat the cats food or the cat eat the dogs food.  A little dog food every now and then probable won’t hurt your cat but a steady diet of dog food can make a cat ill.  Cats are  strictly meat eaters so they need more protein that’s not found in dog’s kibble. Cats also need specific B complex vitamins and amino acids that aren’t found in dog food. On the other hand, a dog’s occasional nibble out of a cat’s bowl probably won’t hurt him but cat foods are high in calories.  A dog that eats lots of cat food could become obese.  Obesity is a serious health risk for your dog.  If your pets try to snatch food from one another, keep them separate when they eat. It’s a good idea to keep your dog’s water bowl and food bowl in a separate room.

Remember, your pets count!
