Product Description

Wellness CORE is based on the nutritional philosophy that pets, based on their primal ancestry, thrive on a diet mainly comprised of meat. Each formula is packed with a high concentration of quality animal protein, without fillers or grains, along with a proprietary blend of botanicals and nutritional supplements. This unique, grain-free recipe supports and nurtures your pets inside…their essence…their core. To create a protein-focused diet the Wellness Way, they carefully control the quality and quantity of the ingredients they use, and pay close attention to the individual properties of each inclusion. From source to bowl, they make no exceptions! If you are looking for a food with more meat and no grains, CORE is truly a more thoughtful alternative. This diet delivers the meat content you’re looking for, while creating a balanced profile of high quality, natural ingredients appropriate for everyday feeding.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Have used this produce before and the cats do well, no throwing up all the time, coat is nice and shinny and they are healthy and active. July 10, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by smelly litterbox my two four-month-old kittens were on Wellness kitten wet food that was just getting too pricy for me (they were going through a 24-pack in less than a week!), so I decided to add grain-free dry food to their diet. I expected no problem with Wellness Core as they were already eating grain-free Wellness, but as soon as I introduced it to their diet, their litterbox started stinking to the high heavens. I hoped it was just adjusting, but it's been about a week and a half, and still no changes. I'm worried it may be a digestive issue, so I'm taking them off it for a little while just to see if that fixes the problem (and I expect it will). It's a shame, as I know it's such a great product, and grain-free foods are supposed to LESSEN odors and digestive issues, so I'm not sure why it's done the opposite for my little guys. Very saddening. Sorry it didn't work out! July 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My kitten loves it very much. My kitten loves this product. I recommend Wellness CORE Grain-Free Kitten. July 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great food The food itself seems very good but my cat doesn't care for the taste. I imagine this would be the pet equivalent of brussel sprouts, healthy but not very tasty. He hasn't had any bad reaction to the food--no diarrhea or vomiting. A great brand and product. December 29, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good ingredients but not tasty to kitten. I bought this dry kitten food for our three month old Ragdoll kitten (male) (he is now five months). He has eaten it now for two months as free choice dry food. While he does snack on the Wellness, he is not very interested in the taste. The ingredients are very good, and the brand reputable, for our kitten, it is not very palatable. Our barn kitten ate this for a month and was not crazy about it, either. I recommend the brand; might be worth trying to see if your pet likes the taste. December 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kitten loves it! My new kitten loves this food. Even my one year old cat still goes crazy for it. My kitten's coat is now very soft. He's been on still food since I adopted him over a month ago. Took about two weeks on this kitten formula to improved his coat. May 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kitten loves it I've had my kitten on this food since I rescued him at 5 wks from a litter living outside. He has thrived on this food and now at 7 months, he is super active and healthy in all regards. People are always amazed at how soft and shiny his coat is. Definitely thanks to this combined with the same formula wet food. October 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Looking for Alternative Grain-Free formulas I was a die-hard customer of another brand, but learned that they switched up their formula, so to stay true to grain-free, I had to find a new product for my newest fur-friend's kitten chow. Wellness is wholesome, and it has a comparable price-point to the previous brand I bought. After making the change, my kitten still eats his food, but for some reason with this formula, he prefers to take each kibble out at a time and bat it about the room like mad before eating it. With his original food, he dove right in. November 17, 2015
