Dollar Store Shopping
I was talking with a friend yesterday that told a scary story. Seems she’d been shopping in a local dollar store and overheard a customer asking a store clerk about pet food.
The customer was looking for cat food but there was none available, the store clerk told the customer not to worry about it, there was no problem feeding dog food to the cat.
Umm, WRONG! There’s a reason for separate cat and dog food. The nutritional needs of cats and dogs are very different, so feeding canine food to a feline or vice versa can have very serious consequences.
There are some food items, salmon, for example, that can be fed to both, but if buying packaged food, check the label and if it doesn’t specifically state it can be fed to either cat or dog, don’t do it!
