My cat loves freeze-dry salmons. There's a particular brand of freeze-dry salmon for cats that my dad buys for her and she loves it. The pet shop that sells this treat ran out of stock of the cat's freeze-dry salmon, however they sell the exact same brand of freeze-dry salmon for dogs, in a package that looks exactly the same as the one for cats.
Before purchase, we asked the pet shop's assistant, who told us there's not much difference, as they are the same product from the same brand, and the difference is that the freeze-dry salmon that is meant for cats might be more salty than the freeze-dry salmon meant for dogs. After hearing this, we bought one packet for my cat, thinking less salt should be better for her instead.
We opened the new packet of freeze-dry salmon for dogs, and the only difference we spotted was the bite size of the treats; the smell, texture and crisp were the SAME. However, after one or two weeks of eating the treat meant for dogs, I noticed patches of fur had shed from both my cat's hind legs. Therefore, I bought freeze-dry chicken from another store, but she didn't like it as much.
Should I stop giving her the freeze-dried salmon that is meant for dogs?
