cshenk:[nq:1]you know that is a question i never researched but is curious to me, i know cats need different things ... back for another blood draw in a week or so i am going to try and remember to ask her.[/nq]
Lee, there's a particular thing added to cat food that dogs do not need (harless to them). Lysine? I forget the actual need and it's a pretty small amount they need. It's something they dont formulate but dogs (and people) do. It's there in some raw body part that isnt in pet food so they add it to cat foods.
Nasty things happen to cats if they do not get it over time. I forget just what but they can go blind first if i recall it right?
Sampling the other's food is harmless. Eating it day and day out isnt wise though. A nibble is fine.
