Why serve canned food to your dog?
* Variety is the spice of life! Canned foods are a simple way to add new flavors and allure to a complete and balanced kibble diet.
* Great for dogs recovering from illness or injury, and needing to gain back lost weight. More calorically dense than kibble and easy to digest, canned food lets your dog easily add needed calories and nutrition without adding a lot of volume.
* Encourage finicky eaters or senior dogs to eat a complete and balanced meal. Just add a spoonful of wet food to your dog's normal kibble meal. Mix well and then warm to enhance the aroma and flavor. The moisture from the wet food also brings out the flavors and aromas inherent in the kibble.
* But remember: Wield a light spoon. Don't overfeed! Canned foods are more calorically dense so watch your dog carefully for any unwanted weight gain and adjust the feeding amount as necessary. Also, many dogs are quite sensitive to changes to their regular diet, even when the changes are positive, like stepping up to a new kibble formula, or adding canned food to encourage eating. To eliminate unwanted surprises (such as loose stools), "slow and gradual" is a good rule to follow when altering an established diet.

It all started with Joey. The adorable lab/pointer mix puppy rescued from the humane society in Toronto. He was an only child for many years and knew how to use many combinations of sad brown eyes, a tail that wagged faster than the wings of a hummingbird, and slobbery kisses to get ANYTHING he wanted. He was good ... really good.
So good that Shelley Gunton and her husband Brian Connolly started a pet food business just to keep him satisfied and healthy. That was 20 years ago.
As Castor & Pollux grows, consistently bringing new all natural and organic pet products to the market, Brian and Shelley won't lose sight of what ultimately brought them here: the love of their pets. The two have made a commitment to community service through their Pet & Soul Foundation and through their support of organizations that work with pets and people for the benefit of both. Guide Dogs for the Blind, Project Pooch, AniMeals, and many other deserving animal support groups all benefit from the company's dedication to the well-being of pets. Brian and Shelley are also active as volunteers in their communities - in the schools, in sports, and in a variety of support organizations. But it all started with Joey.
