No, cats cannot eat dog food. Cats have unique dietary requires and unlike dogs, cats are obligate carnivores, this means that they have to eat meat in order to survive. Taurine and Arginine are essential nutrients that need to be consumed daily by a cat and they are found only in meat.

Science Diet is a brand of cat and dog foods marketed by Hill's Pet Nutrition, Inc. (a subsidiary of the Colgate-Palmolive Company).

In the United Kingdom, Science Diet is known as Science Plan.


Today, Hill's Science Diet pet food is produced and manufactured by the Colgate-Palmolive Company and it is recommended by veterinarians all over the world.

At this time the bags for the Hill's Prescription Diet's are not recyclable.

Raw food diets usually produce small, firm, and light balls of poop that are easily passed.

They will turn white, crumble up and blow away in a day or so if you forget to pick them up.

Some people have gone back to feeding kibble, because no one explained that their dog's poop would radically change on a raw food diet!
