    You should watch your dogs closely for the next few days...cat food isnt good for dogs (whilst cats can "safely" eat dog food..thats what my vet told me anyway..unfortunately it seems to be always the dogs doing the deed :rolleyes:)...they may get a bad tummy for a couple of days :eek:

    Yes, I've heard that dogs shouldn't eat cat food but that was tinned I'm not sure about the dried, but I'd phone my vet for some advise just in case.

    My dog did this while back. Ate about half that quantity.

    Cat food tends to be really rich (contains too much protein and fats) compared to most dog foods, and causes horrendous diarrheoa, and sometimes vomiting. Its not toxic, and wont kill a dog. Oscar just had horrendous wind for 24 hours then was fine, no runs, nothing.

    With a deep chested breed like dobermans id be more worried about a GDV, so just monitor them for signs of bloat.

    I would ring your vets and inform them though, in case they need to be on standby.
