WHAT JILL KNOWS
Dog Likes Cat Food
Our English Setter, Gordon (age 4) loves to eat from the cat's bowl. He prefers the fishy flavored dry food. We aren't always around to keep him out of the dish and he does eat about a bowl a day. We were wondering, if Gordon likes the cat food THAT much, couldn't we just feed it to him? Or do we need to continue supplementing his cat food diet with dog chow? Thanks!

As I understand it, one should not feed cat food to a dog, because dogs require only one half of the protein that cats need. So, it's best if canines eat food specifically made for their nutritional needs.
It would be best to keep kitty's bowl of kibble in a part of the house that Gordon, the dog, does not have access to. Feed Gordon out of his own bowl with his own food. Please consult a
