Dog Food is a No No for Cats

CAT DOG EATYou just ran out of cat food and can’t get to the store today. You may wonder if you could sneak some dog food to your cat. Absolutely not! Dogs and cats have distinctly different dietary needs.Dog chow lacks nutrients that cats need such as Taurine. This amino acid is necessary for the health of your cat’s eyes, digesting fats, and for keeping heart muscles healthy.Cats are carnivores and dogs are omnivores. This means cats need more meat protein than dogs need. A few nibbles from the dogs dish won’t do any harm but make sure that your cats main meal is high quality cat food not dog chow.

Remember, your pets are family!
