Castor & Pollux Organix Organic Dog Cookies Cheddar Cheese Flavor
Castor & Pollux Organix Organic Dog Cookies feature 95% organic ingredients including organic, free-range chicken as the #1 ingredient in all formulas. No Corn, No Wheat, No By-Products! All natural and very yummy!
Organic Organic Dog Cookies are shaped like a drumstick, about 1 1/2" in length, easy to break, and yet nice and crunchy. There are about 9 calories and dozens of wagging tails per cookie!
Please be assured that the peanuts used in Castor & Pollux Organix Organic Dog Cookies are sterilized during processing and are then tested for salmonella. Then, after the cookies are produced, they're tested for salmonella. In fact, since 2007, ALL of Castor and Pollux's pet foods and treats - Organix, Natural Ultramix, Good Buddy and Dog Whisperer - are tested by an independent lab for salmonella, melamine, cyanuric acid and other toxins before being released for sale. Castor & Pollux make no exceptions to this rule. This independent testing is in addition to tests of ingredients that enter Castor & Pollux's production facilities, and the rigorous farm-to-bowl requirements of the USDA's National Organic Program that applies to certified organic ingredients in Organix and Dog Whisperer products.
Organix organic dog foods and treats comply with all USDA National Organic Program requirements, which means that each and every ingredient in Organix, including those that aren't organic are reviewed and approved by an organic certifying agency that enforces all USDA requirements that apply to organic human food.
So when you see the words "organic" or "'certified organic" on Castor & Pollux's food and treat labels, you can be reassured that they truly meet every regulatory requirement that applies to the same organic foods you eat. Organic ingredients have no pesticides, no synthetic fertilizers, no antibiotics, no growth hormones, no bioengineering (no GMO's), no by-products.
Beyond complying with stringent USDA organic regulations that extend from field to bowl, Castor and Pollux use independent labs to test all inbound ingredients prior to production, and again to test all finished products for toxins and contaminants before any product is released for sale.
About Castor & Pollux
It all started with Joey. Joey was an adorable lab/pointer mix puppy rescued from the humane society. He was a master at using his sad brown eyes and slobbery kisses to get anything he wanted. Joey was so persuasive, his human parents, Shelley Gunton and her husband Brian Connolly, started a pet food business just to keep him satisfied and healthy. (Like we said, this dog was good!).
That was 20 years ago! As natural & organic ingredients became more available, Brian and Shelley saw an opportunity to do better by making high quality, healthy food for dogs and cats. As pet parents, they understood how people truly consider their dogs and cats to be members of their family—and are always seeking better quality products for their pets. So they decided to do better and that was the beginning of Castor & Pollux Natural PetWorks.They assembled a team of experts in animal nutrition, organic and natural ingredients, processing, packaging, distribution, veterinary medicine, and technology. And pet lovers, lots and lots of pet lovers. Our goal was to provide pet parents with healthy, safe, and innovative choices for their dogs and cats.
In addition to being an innovator in natural and organic food and treats for dogs and cats, we are also committed to feeding pets in need. To date, we’ve served over 6 million meals to pets living in shelters and foster homes, and we partner with non-profit pet rescue organizations around the country through our PetWorks Partners program.
But we’re not satisfied yet. Nope. As long as there are dogs and cats in the world, we’ll be constantly looking for new ways to make their lives better through wholesome, organic and natural nutrition.
