Since my cat is old (17) and has kidney disease I Try to give her whatever she will eat. She won't touch the canned cat food anymore, and I don't often see her eating the dry food. She will eat scraps off my plate, mostly meat which I assume is healthier for her than canned cat food. But lately she has found another food source she loves canned Dog food! She is gaining weight again which is good, but I am wondering what it is about dog food that she now prefers it to the wet cat food.
Could it be the lower protein and sodium content?
Is it her bodies way of trying to keep kidney disease at bay?
