Another popular misconception that many pet owners fall victim to is the assumption that grain free diets are the best diets for pets with food allergies. While food allergies do occur in pets, corn and other grains are not among the most common allergens found in foods. In fact, according to some of the available research, corn is actually one of the least likely sources of food allergy. In one literature review, 278 dogs with food allergy were evaluated and the problem ingredient was clearly identified for each dog. Beef was the most common , being responsible for 95 of the cases reported. Dairy was responsible for 55 cases, making it the second most frequent cause. Corn was identified as the offender in only 7 cases. In cats, the situation is similar. Fifty-six cats were evaluated in this study. Forty-five of the food allergies resulted from eating beef, dairy, and/or fish. Corn, meanwhile, was responsible for only 4 cases.

Maybe this dog knows that cat food is not dog food.
It is okay to feed the dog food to cats and vice versa, but it should not be for every meal (intermittent feeding only). Our cat foods were formulated for cats and the dog food for dogs, but we often interchange foods with our dog and cats frequently. Dogs and cats are part of the carnivora family which means they are meat eaters at heart. We geared all of our formulas with this in mind. There are differences between the dog food and cat food. For instance, we add taurine (an essential amino acid for cats) to the cat food but not the dog food. A dog’s body produces taurine from the food it eats whereas as a cat cannot do it as efficiently. There is naturally occurring taurine in the meat, so there will be natural taurine in all formulas.Should cats eat dog food? Many people wonder about this question since many cat owners also have dogs. There are a few reasons why cat owners consider feeding their cats dog food:Many pet food manufacturers, including , say that they are not using rendered pets to make a cannibal of your dog. But how would they really know? There is no simple way to look at a shipment of meat and bone meal and tell exactly what species are in the mix. The protein percentage of a load of cats and dogs looks basically the same as a shipment of carcasses from a poultry farm. The rendering industry even in otherwise highly technical documents.Cats are that need much more protein than dogs do. This means cats need meat to sustain their life. Dogs on the other hand are omnivores, like humans, that can consume a lot of non-protein foods such as vegetables or fruits. Cats cannot digest those foods very well if they consume an excessive amount. A little bit of dog food will not do any harm, but it will have very little nutritional value for your cats. Cats may even be able to survive on dog food, but they will lack certain nutrients such as taurine (amino acid) which is essential to cats.
