Frequently Asked

Why do you add salt to your Castor & Pollux formulas?

Animal protein is naturally low in salt, yet salt is an essential dietary nutrient needed for electrolyte balance, acid base balance, osmotic and water pressure around and in cells, nerve function, proper digestion and reproduction. That’s a lot of important stuff! In order to provide your pet with a complete and balanced diet and to comply with the level of salt required by AAFCO, we add trace amounts of sodium chloride (the same as table salt) to our formulas. We never add salt simply as a flavoring agent.
