Is cat food bad for puppies? Went over to a neighbor and Elise ate the cat food!

Elise ate the canned and was beginning to eat the dry when I stopped her. I'm not a new dog owner, however, I've never had cats and we were just visiting. Thank you for any assistance you are able to give.

Well, cat food isn't exactly what you would want to feed a dog permanently, but getting into it just once won't hurt your puppy.

One thing you might expect to see over the next day or so, however, might be an upset tummy, and particularly soft or runny stools. Soft stools are really common in dogs that have gotten into cat food.

Just that little bit shouldn't hurt her, especially since you stopped her, but don't let her make a habit of it. :)
