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 4.7 out of 5 by 80 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog loves it I have tried raw diets, all sorts of kibble, and this is THE ONE. I think it's the combination of the small bits and the grain free, heavy protein that appeals to him. It's expensive, but worth it. I have a happy, healthy dog. Beyond that, Chewy delivers in two days for free if you're over $50.00, and I LOVE that. Oh, and they cost less than the local PETSMART (who often doesn't have the small breed Core. Thanks. December 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Full nutrition in a little kibble! I've been buying this regularly, together with Solid Gold's just a wee bit dry food for my 2 dogs-- a 15-year old Cocker Spaniel (with recently diagnosed lymphoma) & a 4-year old Pomeranian. Both like small kibble. The Wellness Core has become their favorite. Plus I agree with another reviewer that you feed them less because of all the protein & no fillers in this complete food. My dogs highly recommend it (they actually "lick their bowl clean"--not one kibble left!!). On another note, I'd like to comment on Mr. Chewy's excellent customer service. I had repeat delivery problems with my last order & they took care of replacing what was broken or I didn't get. Their reps are extremely helpful & their customer service is Outstanding!! Keep up the good work! July 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by No More itch!! I have a Gluten and Dairy Free baby who I have been feeding a holistic blend for the longest time and suddenly began itching again - Since switching to this the itchies are gone and hes eating well. LOVE it and the other guys love it too! April 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by My small dog is thriving on this! This CORE product is everything they claim it to be. My little Beagle mix is finally simpatico with the dog food he is eating. The smaller kibble size goes down so much better for him, and I am already seeing the benefits of the probiotics and the joint nutrients. He is now more active and happy, and also more "regular". An EXCELLENT product. March 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Digestive system back to normal! Fast shipping, good price! I've tried Blue, Taste of the Wild, and Prescription Hypo-Allergenic dog food...blue made home have severe skin allergies, itching and itching, taste of the wild a little too, and his stools were irregular and he did't like the taste of it. The prescription he quit itching but his stools were like little pebbles. This is the only one I found that fixed his itching and his stools are like they are suppose to be. Not more hacking up either. I would recommend this to anyone with a small dog with skin allergies, digestive issues, and stool problems. I have a Healthy Minature Yorkie now! March 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far so good! I switched my Boston Terrier to this after ALOT of research. (of course I weaned him off Science Diet by mixing new food more & more so it wasn't a shock 2 his digestive system). If u compare this & the ingredients 2 any other dog food u will find u pay for what u get ! He's doing great, seems to have more spunk, no digestive problems & I truly believe my premium companion deserves premium food. Chewy.com had the best price (online & in store comparison) August 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by My little girl, (10 lb terrier mix) loves this and gobbles it up My girl is a rescue and the organization recommended Wellness Core. She's a very quick eater, and was starting to gulp and cough up the kibble, so we recently changed to small breed, and even though she doesn't slow down a lot, she seems to enjoy the smaller kibble size just as much and doesn't "cough up" any pieces. By the way, CHEWY has THE best customer service. All online retailers should be so pleasant and accommodating. April 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Glad I switched I've tried many brands promising they will love it,it has no preservatives. All to end up tossing 90% because of refused to eat or found made them sick. With much doubt I purchased Wellness small breed CORE few months ago and it was the first premade dog food that they not only ate but ate it all and no issues with getting sick. I have now switch to treats from Wellness as well..and they love their treats..also wheat free which is good for myself because handling food with a gluten allergy no longer having to wear gloves.
