Castor & Pollux Organix Adult Canine Formula
It is nice to see a lot organic ingredients in a dog food. We also like seeing pumpkin replacing tomato pomace or beet pulp as a stool stiffener, as pumpkin does contain some nutrients. More meat would be nice to see, but overall this is a good dog food and does not contain any nasty ingredients. Sodium Selenite is an ingredient that should be replaced, but we do recommend this dog food.
