22 Cat Products That You Can Safely Use with Dogs

There are “cat products,” and there are “dog products.” That’s the way it’s always been if you ask pet parents of either species. But, there are some pet supplies that can be used with both species and if you're a multi-pet owner, you'll likely appreciate the 2-in-1 ability of these cat products that can be used with dogs.

I've also managed to find some food items that work for both pets. But before we look at the cat foods and supplies on the below list, it’s important to note that the nutritional needs of cats and dogs are dissimilar. You should never feed cat food to a dog or vice versa unless that food has been specifically developed for both species. Keep this in mind if you decide to investigate the use of other cat products on your dog.

Likewise, size is another big factor to consider – cat products are typically much smaller than dog products. In the case of toys, a small cat toy could pose a choking hazard to medium and large breeds. Less dangerously, clothing designed for the feline body may not fit a canine of the same weight quite as well, resulting in a waste of money.

As with any pet supplies that you buy for your dog, be mindful of your Fido's needs. Keep his preferences in mind, particularly when purchasing toys. Think about the pet's safety as well, minding the canine's size and behavior.

Just a few drops in your cat’s water keeps teeth and gums healthy and means no more struggling with a toothbrush. Have trouble keeping your dog’s teeth clean, too?

We’ve found Rocco & Roxie Professional Strength Stain and Odor Eliminator to be a great solution for those once-in-a-while accidents.

Just blotting the accident and then using the enzyme-activated solution to clean the area has been pretty effective at getting out those stains and smells and preventing repeat accidents in the same spot.

Just use it as you would for your feline offenders, and the stain and smell disappear!

7. The Honest Kitchen Bone Broth

Price: $28.96/12-pack

The Honest Kitchen Bone Broth POUR OVERS Wet Toppers for Dogs (12 Pack), 5.5 oz - Beef Stew As our cats get older, the results of traditional medicine to control aging symptoms can be increasingly unpredictable. The same goes for our feline friends with immunodeficiency concerns. In these instances, more cat parents are turning to all-natural products, and human-grade Honest Kitchen Bone Broth is one often-used option.

Utilizing the Ayurvedic properties of foods and herbs, this powdered broth dissolves in hot water and, once cooled, is poured over your cat’s food as needed to boost overall health. As an all-natural food-based product, Honest Kitchen Bone Broth is beneficial for dogs, too, and adding the cooled broth to your dog’s kibble daily is also a great way to entice picky eaters or add flavor to bland prescription foods.

8. Honest Kitchen The Perfect Form Supplement

Pro Bloom is a great addition for dogs with sensitive tummies, too, although be warned, not all dogs are as tolerant of this supplement as they are of the previous two from Honest Kitchen. If your dog is tolerant of it, though, it’s a good way to boost their immune system and support digestion by simply adding a small amount to daily meals.

10. Pet MD Chlorhexidine Wipes with Ketoconazole and Aloe

That means you don’t have to hold the kitty still or suffer the claws of fortune…you get the point.

14. Dechra Miconahex + Triz Pet Shampoo

Price: $25.40

Dechra MiconaHex + Triz Shampoo for Dogs, Cats & Horses (8oz) Having a cat with a skin infection is…there really is no word for it because not only is your cat uncomfortable, but they’re stinky and in need of a bath, too. And it’s not as though we see anyone lining up and volunteering to bathe cats! Of course, when you use this medicated shampoo, you’ll still have to bathe your cat, but it’s a fast-acting solution that means fewer baths and faster relief of fungal and bacterial skin infections.

Have trouble with your dog’s skin, too? Dechra Miconahex + Triz Pet Shampoo is safe to use on your dog as well. Just be sure to read the directions on the bottle carefully since treatment will depend on the type of skin concerns you are facing!

15. Zymox Ear Solution

Price: $22.49

ZYMOX Enzymatic Ear Solution with 0.5-Percent Hydrocortisone, for Dog & Cat, 1.25 oz If your cat has chronic problems with its ears, then we recommend giving Zymox Ear Solution a try.

It also relieves inflammation and reduces itching, which makes for a happy kitty.

Just be sure to read the directions for applying for your cat and be sure to stop using it if you notice those ears getting worse. Have a dog with chronic ear infections? You can use Zymox Ear Solution on them, too; just squeeze them into the ear and wipe the outer inside of the ear to take care of that infection in no time.

16. VetriScience Composure Pro Bite Size Chews

Price: $30.89

VetriScience Composure Pro Bite Size Chews for Dogs and Cats - Chicken Flavor Pet Relaxants & Anti-Anxiety Treatment - 60 Soft Chews Another solution for anxious cats, VetriScience, Composure Pro is bite-sized chews that work from the inside rather than the sprays and drops that calm anxiety through scent. Flavored with chicken liver, just give your cat one of these chews before heading to the vet, and you’ll notice them calm down to a point where it’s not a traumatizing event for either of you.

These chews are also safe for anxious dogs although we find the efficacy depends greatly on the type of anxiety your dog has and the severity of it. (Personally, I had a Labrador with heart-stopping anxiety and chews like this did nothing for him, but a family terrier with minor noise anxiety showed great improvement!) These chews also have the added benefit of supporting cognitive and brain function, which makes them a beneficial daily supplement for senior dogs with cognitive dysfunction.

Arava Pet Eye Wipes - for Dogs Cats Puppies & Kittens - 100 Count - Natural and Aromatherapy Medicated - Removes Dirt Crust and Discharge - Prevents Tear Stains (Pet Eye Wipes) If you have a cat with allergies or regular eye infections, then you know the difficulty of never-ending eye boogers.

They’re all-natural, so they’re safe for use on eyes, but they’re big enough to wipe away eye boogers and discharge without swiping them across your cat’s face.

Does your dog have allergies, too? (Remember that Labrador I mentioned above?) Arava wipes are safe for your dog as well, and just one wipe in the morning gets rid of those green sticky boogers caused by spring and summer pollen!

Price: $14.99

Bodhi Dog Detangling Spray | Dog and Cat Fur & Hair Detangler Spray | Detangling Spray for Dog & Cat Grooming Essentials | Made in USA If you have a long-haired cat who hates to be brushed, then simply put, we feel sorry for you. Well, we would have before we discovered Bodhi Dog All-Natural Apple Detangling Spray (don’t worry, Bodhi Dog is just the company name!). A quick spritz on your long-haired cat’s coat makes brushing quick and easy and eliminates those painful tangles and mats that make brushing such an unpleasant experience.

Free from detergents, alcohol, parabens, SLS, and any harmful chemicals, you also don’t have to worry about skin irritation and can use this solution a couple of times a week, if not daily. Does your dog have a long coat, too? Bodhi Dog spray is just as safe for dogs, and all it takes is a simple spritz before brushing through their coat to eliminate those tangles and leave their coat shining.

21. Solid Gold SeaMeal Kelp-Based Supplement for Skin & Coat, Digestive & Immune Health

Price: $24.29

Solid Gold SeaMeal Multivitamin for Cats & Dogs - Kelp Powder Cat & Dog Supplement - Omega 3 & Digestive Enzymes for Skin & Coat, Gut + Immune Support - 1 LB Sometimes pets are just unhealthy, and if you have a cat with skin, coat, digestive, or immune trouble, then Solid Gold SeaMeal Kelp-Based Supplement is an addition that you need to make to your cat’s daily meal. All you need to do is sprinkle a little of this natural (and stinky) powder on your cat's daily food and leave them to it.

There is a chewable version of this supplement available, too, but we find that our cats are much more amenable to the powdered version. The chewable version of SeaMeal is ideal for use in dogs, though. Just offer the supplement as a treat, and most dogs will wolf them down – mostly due to the fishy smell! Plus, the benefits to your dog are the same as those for your cat!

22. Forticept Blue Butter Anti-microbial Gel

Forticept Blue Butter – Hot Spot Treatment for Dogs & Cats | Dog Wound Care | Skin Yeast Infections, Ringworm, Cuts, Rashes, First Aid Veterinary Strength Topical Ointment 4ozIf your cat suffers from skin infections, such as acne, yeast infection, or ringworm, or its wounds, sores, or rashes take too long to heal, this is the holy grail for him. Forticept Blue Butter has been clinically proven effective in treating wound hotspots, burns, post-surgical sites, lacerations, skin rashes, and infections.

Does your dog have similar issues with its wounds and cuts? This anti-microbial gel is safe for use on your dog, too. Its non-toxic, pH-balanced formula makes it safe for your furry friend and for the whole family. In fact, it's safer than antibiotics and steroid treatments for wounds. What we also like about this gel is that it stays on your dog's skin for a long time and doesn't leave a stain. Furthermore, it doesn't sting, irritate, or burn your pet's skin, unlike wound treatment products with alcohol and iodine.
