I am sorry your neighbor is telling you this. Cat food is not bad for dogs. It is higher in fat and protein than dog food, so eating nothing but cat food could cause weight gain, pancreatitis, and in an older dog with kidney disease, it might be too much protein. Feeding a little cat food is not going to make her sick!
