I like to feed Orijen 6Fish but since it is very expensive I find myself alternating to Castor & Pollux Grain-Free, Poultry-Free for my allergic dog. He loves the kibble & the fruit/veggie pieces! No allergy issues since it also does not contain egg as many foods do. It is not as high quality as Orijen but definitely still a very good quality kibble (& at half the price!) I recommend this food for dogs with poultry allergy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ticket Great high-end product sans grain & chicken parts
This is an excellent food and dogs love salmon - smells good, good for the coat and is very nutritious. I also recommend the duck as well.

by MASB Highly Recommended Pet Food
I sought out a grain-free, poultry-free food after struggling to find some allergy-relief for my dog, Fred. He is 10 years old and, with a recent move to Texas, was overwhelmed by allergies. Our vet had tried multiple medications, etc. with no affect. A friend recommended we switch his food so I took a chance and order this Castor & Pollux bag. It has made a huge difference for my dog! He seems the happiest and most energized he has been in a long time. His allergy-related symptoms are minimal at most. Clearly, this diet switch was essential for his health. Though it might not work for all, I highly recommend this food. It not only helps Fred health-wise, but he loves eating it. There are some very small vegetable chunks in the food which he sometimes does not digest but that does not concern me. From one pet owner to the other, I'll say it again, I highly recommend this dog food.

I have two dogs (Standard Poodle, Italian Greyhound) that are medium-picky and they seem to like this.

My dog loves this food. Great food for a dog that needs to eat grain free like my Bulldog. Good for a healthy coat my dogs fur actually started to grow back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TexasJK My lab-chow mix who has grain/poultry allergies HATED this food
After researching the market out there for a new grain-free, poultry-free dog food for my 90 pound, 8-year old lab-chow mix, I was excited to find Castor & Pollux Natural Ultra-mix Salmon on Chewy.com. Prior to starting him on a grain/poultry free track, my dog was seen by the vet for allergies (symptoms include excessive biting/licking his back toes which have become red, excessive shedding, lethargy, decrease in appetite). I slowly introduced the new food to my dog, and, initially, I thought he was liking it at first, but then he started AVOIDING his food bowl. It became SUCH a tiresome battle trying to get him to eat his food. What's worse is that I would see pieces of the food go right through him (evident in his soft stool). I decided to try this food for at least 60 days before making a decision to search for a new grain-free, poultry-free food. Have been reading great things about Wellness Core Ocean formula so will be trying that out next. Wish us luck!!

This food is great quality and I definitely recommend it. After suffering from skin issues for months, I switched my pup to this bc it was grain-free and did not contain any poulty or beef products (it's strictly fish). She showed immediate improval. The actual food is insanely adorable- heart shaped kibble with dried fruit and vegetable pieces and my pup loves it. THE ONLY DOWNSIDE: this bag used to be sold at the same price with five more pounds (30 total). I wish they would have reduced the price accordingly bc an extra (or lack of) five pounds makes a difference. It a little disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buck51 Only food my dog can eat.
I have a 9 month old silver Labrador that was born allergic to everything. I don't remember him having a solid stool until I found this Ultramix that is grain free and poultry free. He would break out in skin rashes with every other type of food we purchased which ended up costing me in the four figures in vet bills and prescriptions to eliminate. I even tried boiling chicken breasts and adding rice which yielded the same outcome. This food was a savior. He is a good sized lab at 85 lbs and all muscle. I give him 3 cups in the morning and 3 cups at night and he has a great shape to him along with great energy to maintain. This feeding schedule takes me through two 15 lb bags a month so I have now set up autoship and saving over $9 a shipment. If you have a dog that seems allergic to grains and poultry then I would highly recommend you try this Castor & Pollux Natural Ultramix Salmon. It has allowed my family and Dude to enjoy our relationship everyday.
