Castor & Pollux Organix Puppy Formula

We like seeing Organic Chicken, Chicken Meal, Organic Peas and Organic Brown Rice before the first fat in this dog food. But then again we do not love seeing Potato protein and Sodium Selenite this high on the ingredient list. We would like to see salmon meal and dried egg product higher on this list, both are very good for puppies. With not a lot of fiber, we wouldn’t be surprised to hear that some puppies have loose stools on this product. With no nasty ingredients we do recommend this product.

    I’m from Nyc, and I own a really cool one year old blue nose APBT named Trilla. I raised him on Merrick’s Puppy platter, and was very satisfied with that line of products. So naturally when I wanted to switch him up to a more adult kibble. I had to find a brand better or on par with Merrick’s. Castor, and Pollux Organix puppy formula was by far the best way to go. His coat is glossy, he loves the food, and the smaller size of the kibble seems alot easier for my pup to ingest, even though he’s a big boy. Bottom line Organix formula works great for me, and most important my pup
