If in your house there live several pets, you, perhaps, noticed how the cat and a dog drag a forage each other from time to time. And though they can be the best friends, sleep and play together, nevertheless you should not give them an identical forage. Why cats are attracted by a dog forage and whether safely to cats to regale on what is eaten by a dog?
There are several reasons for which dog food can attract cats.
According to information PetMD, dog food — not the best option of feeding of a cat. At least, as the main component of a diet.
The matter is that the structure of dog food differs from structure of cat food, so, cats who eat a dog forage lack important components. For example, often add vitamin A as cats need an additional source of this vitamin to a cat's forage. Same concerns taurine and arakhidonovy acid. These ingredients are not added to dry dog food, and the lack, for example, of taurine for a cat can become the reason of cardiovascular diseases.
Eventually, cats need more protein, than to dogs as they are strictly carnivorous beings while dogs — plotovseyadny . And dog food for cats is too poor in this regard.
If the cat regales on a dog forage only occasionally, in it there is nothing terrible. However it is better to hold nevertheless a cat far away from a dog bowl. The best way — to feed pets in different places and to exclude free access to each other food.
