Dogs eating cat food
I have noticed that my two dogs like to eat my cat's pellets. Is this bad for their health?

Generally speaking, no it is not bad for the health. It should not be their main diet though, but it won't do them any harm if they eat some of it. Just be careful that they do not become overweight.
