Of course it would do harm to it if you give it cat food. The ingredients in cat food and dog food and totally different. Both food are made after much analyse on the animal. Giving the dog cat food would cause them to have stomachache. If your dog has small teeth, you can grind the dry food into smaller pieces for it, or cut the can food into smaller piece, but NEVER give it cat food to it. It is counted as pets abuse in some countries, it could end up losing a LIFE!

It would cause intestinal problems (like diarrhea and vomiting), and since it is not balanced for dogs it would eventually reek havoc on the dog's entire system. Dogs do not need near as much protein as cats. I would recommend a high quality dog food (or puppy food if your dog is under one year) that is made for small breeds.

Hi,You didn`t say how old your dog is.Sometimes I will use cat food in very small bits to help train a certain exercise, but no don`t feed you dog cat food regularly.If you are feeding kibble make it moist by adding water or a beef or chicken broth.I can understand that this can now be a problem for a lot of pet owners with the recall of so many canned or pouched dog foods.Floren DeWaardWiley Creek Kennels

no you should not because it is to high in protien and just in not made for dogs they now have dry kibble that is made for small dogs. or you can do what the other person said to do which is to wet it down with water
