    I received several cans of cat food but my cat will not eat it. Can I mix a Tbl spoon of it with my dogs dry food and give it to him (my dog)? It would be twice a day, and he is a Chihuahua mix. Thanks

    Please take that cat food to your nearest animal control and donate. It may be a tax deductible donation.

    Cat food is greasy, slimy and high in fat.

    So, I would not feed this to a dog, especially a small breed that may be vulnerable to pancreatitis.

    Or, you could feed it little by little to your cats mixed in with their regular food.

    Wet food is given to the animal 1-2 times per day. Dry – twice a day in accordance with the recommendations for the volume of servings (as a rule, they are indicated on the package).
    Mixing rations in one dish is not worth it – for each type requires a separate capacity. At the same time it is necessary to provide the pet with constant access to fresh water.

    Hi Paula,

    Yes dogs can eat cat foods but Cats cant eat dogs food.. (No Taurine)
    Cause cats are very fussy eaters, cats foods have better quality ingredients then the dog foods have.
    Cat foods are higher in protein so just be careful with the fat isn’t too high for your dog??
