Grain-Free Recipes Designed for Small Breed Dogs

Wellness knows small breed dogs have specific requirements when it comes to their nutrition. That's why they developed a CORE Small Breed Formula especially for little dogs, providing optimal calories in a smaller kibble size. This recipe is formulated with high-quality protein to help support the higher energy needs of small dogs and Omega fatty acids from salmon oil for healthy skin and coat.

Supporting Your Dog's Optimal Health to the CORE

Wellness CORE follows the nutritional philosophy that pets, based on their primal ancestry, thrive on a diet mainly comprised of meat. CORE formulas are packed with quality animal protein without fillers or grains, plus botanicals and nutritional supplements. These unique, grain-free recipes support and nurture your pet, contributing to his inner wellbeing all the way through to his core.

Why is CORE Different?

Unlike many grain-free diets, Wellness CORE considers your pet's whole health by ensuring the overall nutritional equation remains appropriate for everyday feeding. Higher protein can also mean higher fat, minerals and calories. By thoughtfully selecting specialized ingredients and managing nutritional ratios, CORE delivers protein-focused nutrition thoughtfully - with balance, not excess.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best I switched my two dachshund mixes to this food after one started going anorexic from a sudden dislike of a competitor's brand that ended up all over the news for lying about ingredients. I can't say enough about how wonderful this food is. Both have been on this food over a year and never get tired of the taste. They've never refused to eat. In hindsight it is clear that they both needed more protein. This food is very, very nutrient dense and has the perfect balance of what my dogs need. They have both trimmed up a few pounds from very specific portion control on this food. The bag always smells fresh when you crack the seal and the kibble size is tiny. Product is consistent every time. Their vets are impressed and I always recommend this brand to anyone looking for a dog food. I hope Wellness never changes this formula because we'd be lost without it. April 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best dog food we've used After trying several other grain-free foods, we've been feeding this to our dachshunds for a over a year now. They seem to love it, plus their coats are so shiny and soft. One dog is 5 and the other 7, but you would think they were puppies with the energy they have. May 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our 7yo small dog mix has energy? I was introduced to and started using grain free dry dog food when we adopted our first small breed dog three years ago. The most important thing I know about grain free food is that my dog has never been sick. I recently changed her grain free dry food to Wellness CORE Grain-Free Small Breed Formula because of the great reviews on taste. Our young lady disliked her other grain free kibble and stuck up her nose if I didn't add fresh diced carrots, apple and canned chicken to her dinner. When her new kibble arrived I opened the bag immediately and offered some to "the princess" and she absolutely loves it all by itself! She accepts it as a treat and I'm very happy. I am also thrilled that this dry food gives her more energy. She used to run for the first few blocks of her daily run/walk but now she runs for 10 blocks then finally succumbs to walking. I will continue to spoil by adding fresh fruits and veggies to her dinner. I am happy it comes in a 12 lb bag with a zip closure. Don't forget....you get what you pay for! November 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Only feed my dogs great quality kibble and this is one of the best. May 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by She eats ALL of this! Our 4 1/2 lb Tiny toy poodle spent 12 years of her life on another brand (that has Source bits) Welll - she NEVER would eat them. All the food would be eaten with 100's of little balls in the bowl and floor. We changed to this and now she eats ALL the food. Fact is, she did NOT like nor would eat the bits. (We were throwing away 1/3 of the net weight of the food) No more! :-) May 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by VERY EXCITED !!!! Seamless order ! Was at my door in a day or so ! It never fails with me, we always run out of dog food and no one in my home is aware of it until it's time to feed our buddy ! I'm always running out to the Petco to grab it and run back home. I will be using Chewy.com from now on !!! May 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best dog food! My pug loves this food. Being a small dog he prefers the tiny kibbles and this has the smallest little bites of any of the foods I have tried. Even our cat likes this food but of course we don't give it to him, but he does like to sneak a bite! I wish it came in a larger bag, but for now I purchase 2 of the 12 lb bags @ a time to save on the shipping. It's kind of expensive, but I feel that I am giving him a high quality food, not a cheap food with a lot of fillers. April 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Yorkies love this Finally found a kibble that my very picky Yorkies love. They just gobble gobble gobble. Already ordered another 4 lb bag. I like having the option of a smaller amount.no risk of it going stale. Also will definitely continue ordering from chewy.com . Pricing and customer service is highly recommended. . April 9, 2016
