From time to time we get questions about whether it is possible to give our insect-based dog food to cats as well - the short answer is no, and here we explain in a little more detail why.

petgood's insect-based dog food is specially developed for the dog's nutritional needs. We work closely with our team of veterinarians and nutritionists, and base the nutritional content on current recommendations from FEDIAF and the latest research. Our recipe is therefore adapted to the dog's need for protein, fat, energy, vitamins and minerals.
Cats, on the other hand, are completely different animals than dogs. The dog is an omnivore while the cat is a carnivore. Cats have a higher need for fat and protein in their diet, and also another essential amino acid they need to get through the diet - taurine. Taurine is a vital amino acid for the cat, as a lack of this nutrient can lead to heart disease or serious eye damage and blindness. For this reason, it is of utmost importance that cats are fed with cat food - these always contain higher levels of taurine, and otherwise vitamins, minerals, fat and protein that are adapted to the cats' unique needs.
