Cat food tends to be high in fat, calories and protein which means it's not ideal for dogs. Dogs with sensitive stomachs may suffer gastrointestinal upset, sickness and diarrhoea after eating cat food.

Just as it's dangerous to feed only cat food to dogs, cats cannot survive on dog food alone.

dog food lacks sufficient vitamin A and taurine, two nutrients cats need to live healthy lives.

dog food is also deficient in arachidonic acid and lacks the adequate meat-protein levels that cats need.

✔️

It's fine for kittens to eat the occasional bite of puppy food, but they cannot subsist on it, mostly due to the lack of adequate taurine in dog and puppy food.

Therefore, commercial cat and kitten diets have supplemental taurine added.

Other than taurine, dogs and cats require the same essential amino acids.

✔️
An occasional bite of dog food won't hurt your cat. But dog food is not a substitute for cat food. They do have many of the same ingredients. But cat food is specially formulated for a cat's needs, which include more protein as well as certain vitamins and fatty acids.
