Castor and Pollux Ultramix dog food is a brand I have seen many times in small holistic pet food stores, but I never really gave this brand a second glance. So, when I decided to write my top ten duck dog foods list, I knew I had to take a closer look at it.

With that said, let’s just get into my Castor and Pollux Ultramix dog food review.

For this review, I will be focusing on the Grain Free Natural Ultramix Duck, Sweet Potatoes and Whole Peas Entrée.

Duck

This is a high-quality protein ingredient. Keep in mind, during the cooking process, the amount of duck and protein left is reduced by half.

Turkey Meal

This is another high-quality ingredient that can contain as much as 300% more protein.

Chicken

Chicken is a high-quality protein ingredient that may be reduced by half after the cooking process.

Lamb Meal

This is yet another high-quality ingredient that can contain as much as 300% more protein.

Salmon Meal

This is a high-quality ingredient that can contain as much as 300% more protein.

Sweet Potatoes

This is an ingredient that is typically used as a gluten-free source of carbohydrates. It is also a source of digestible fiber that can help support a dog’s digestive tract.

Potatoes

This low-calorie ingredient is used as a source of digestible fiber, Vitamin C, essential B vitamins and Potassium.

Natural Flavor

This ingredient is comprised of meat, vegetable and fruit source, all used to enhance the flavor of the kibble.

Peas

This gluten-free ingredient is a source of carbohydrates, additional protein, and digestible fiber.

Potato Protein

This ingredient is a source of protein that can contain as much as 75% protein. It is also an additional source of carbohydrates.

Pea Protein

This ingredient is rich in essential amino acids such as methionine, tryptophan, and valine. It is also a source of essential vitamins, minerals, and digestible fiber.

Bananas

This is a low-calorie ingredient that can be highly beneficial in a dog’s diet. Bananas are a source of potassium, magnesium, Vitamin C, essential B6 vitamins, digestible fiber, copper and biotin, all of which can help support a healthy immune system.

Carrots

Carrots are an excellent source of Vitamin A, potassium, essential vitamins and digestible fiber.

Apples

This is an ingredient that can be a source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and additional digestible fiber.

Cranberries

Blueberries

Organic Alfalfa

This is an ingredient that is rich in Calcium, Potassium, Beta-Carotene, Vitamin K, essential B vitamins and insoluble fiber.

Salmon Oil

This is a rich source of fat that contains omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. It can help support healthy skin, a shiny coat, a healthy immune system, and healthy cardiac function.

Salt

While I am personally not a fan of salt in dog food, it is kind of important. For starters, sodium is used to help the body produce hydrochloric acid, a compound essential to digestion. However, in excess, salt can lead to obesity and cardiac issues.
