Castor & Pollux Organix Grain-Free Organic Small Breed Recipe Dry Dog Food is hot extruded (which means it's processed under extreme heat and pressure) and made with feed grade ingredients, which are unfit for human consumption. It contains 18 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 6 anti-nutrients including Organic Sweet Potatoes, Organic Chickpeas, and Organic Peas (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 1 other sketchy ingredient, Natural Flavor.

Warning Due to this being a grain-free food that contains legumes or potatoes this Castor & Pollux recipe may be implicated in the FDA's ongoing investigation into diet-related Dilated Cardiomyopathy (or DCM), a potentially fatal heart condition.
