If a 7-8 months old pug with a hernia ate 10 cat food biscuits will it be detrimental to its health?
I doubt it. There may be some loose stools to deal with. Watch out for obvious signs of a problem (lethargy, diarrhoea, vomiting) and take the pug to the vet if you are worried, but I would not have thought you will see anything major.
Is the hernia relevant to your concerns, or additional information for us? Where is the hernia?

Well I suppose it might depend on what type of cat biscuits they were, but my puppy managed to climb up onto a table in my conservatory and scoff most of my cat’s breakfast of Iams cat food biscuits with no ill effects whatsoever.
Hope to hear more about your little Pug soon! :)

I wouldn't think it would be too bad but every pet reacts differently. Our adult pug got into a bag of cat food and ate about 1/4 of a bag. His stomach blew up like a balloon. Thankfully he was ok.
I would keep an eye on him and see how he does.

Just watch for bloating like you would with anything dry that they eat too much of....
One of the things that they'll give to dogs that aren't eating to try to get them to eat something is canned cat food.

As long as he/she poops, it should be alright. The cat food itself wouldn't be an issue as a one time thing.

Mine have been known to steal the cat food once found them both (old ladies) so full they looked like they where going to have puppies! Not happy at all since they could barely move and had drunk water before I got home, the vet said not to let them drink (too late) and not to feed them for 8 hours (again not happy) My male at the time Angus was sitting forlornly being the gentlePug he was he had only eaten a small amount!
