Supporting Your Cat'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.

Fresh, Whole Food Ingredients

Wellness CORE provides a balanced profile of high-quality, natural ingredients appropriate for everyday feeding. These grain-free recipes contain absolutely no meat by-products, artificial colors, flavorings, preservatives, corn, wheat or soy.

CRANBERRIES

Excellent source of Vitamin C and unique natural source of tannins (astringents found in plants) that help prevent harmful bacteria from thriving in the urinary tract.

DRIED KELP

Excellent source of iron, iodine, potassium and trace minerals as well as Vitamins A, D, B12 and folic acid, and has a high digestible protein level.

YUCCA SCHIDIGERA EXTRACT

Supplies good quantities of iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, and silicon, and is thought to reduce stool and urine odors.

CHICORY ROOT EXTRACT

Contains vitamin C, an antioxidant, and provides important health benefits as a natural source of inulin, a soluble fiber which serves as a prebiotic.

GROUND FLAXSEED

Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids which improve the shine of the pet's coat and high in fiber which helps move food through the digestive system.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 84 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by great food this is a great food. less premium foods are like feeding your cats pop tarts and doritos, and of course if you try to switch them instantly, they won't like it. cats need to be switched over slowly, with a bit more food being added every day until they are used to the taste of the new foods. this process can take two weeks depending on your cats and they're eating habits. if you went from eating pop tarts to instantly eating broccoli, you wouldn't like it either. i use this food because the ingredients are healthy, and having 7 cats i need to do as much preventative maintenance as possible. all my cats are healthy, and i've been feeding them this for years. they love all the junky cat foods because, well, it's like candy. tastes yummy but full of junk. as a vet student i know that diet is the number one thing that leads to health problems and i take my cats health seriously. vet visits are expensive and feeding your cats a premium food can save you money in the long run. also, to the woman that thought her cats had flea dermatitis-- if your cats skin issues cleared up due to diet, chances are it's a food allergy, not a flea allergy. food allergies are very common among cats and dogs, and many health issues can be fixed simply by diet alteration. i don't work for wellness, i'm just here to say this is a great food. premium foods do make a difference to your animals health.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product for diabetic cats! I have a 15 yr. old diabetic cat that was taking insulin injections 2x per day (not fun!) I did some research on low carb cat foods, and I decided to try the Wellness Core. This food cured her diabetes!!! August 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wellness makes excellent pet food. Some may feel that good quality pet food is too expensive, but my experience has shown that when you serve what is recommended, overall, the cost is about the same as lower quality pet food. Pets need more of the lesser quality food to fill their needs, so you use more. Good quality pet food lasts longer because they need less since it is of higher quality and provides better nurishement for your pet. I have had 4 cats for over 4 years now and all they have had is Wellness Cat food. They are healthy, have beautiful coats, bright eyes and are very playful♥ February 14, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING! Although I'm more of a dog person, I took in a stray kitten. After extensive research into feline nutrition (because SURPRISE! it's waaaaay different than dogs), I chose Wellness Core. The pieces are small enough for the kitten and he LOVES the flavor! It's been a few weeks and I've noticed major changes to him. His coat is thick, soft and incredibly shiny. He's lean and healthy looking. Overall, he's happy, I'm happy, and I'm definitely going to keep buying this product. July 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for Urinary tract infection I have two cheetoh cats, and one of my cats got a uninary tract infection 4 mos ago so I switched my cats to Core Wellness original grain free. So using this cat food along with meds and herbal treatment my cat is completely healed. A friend who is a computer expert did search on the web & said that core wellness is the best for UTI (even tho my vet suggested a cheaper brand of cat food) which my cats did not like. Also my cats don't shed like they use to & are much healthier now. So I would rather pay a little more for quality cat food then another expensive vet bill. I believe you get what you pay for. And preventive care is the way to go. October 13, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Cats would not eat this product I have three cats and thought I was doing them a real favor by buying this product ~ they absolutely refuse to eat it! Have gone to a product they do like and have tried to mix this with it and somehow they manage to leave what they do not like in the bottom of the bowl. I am completely perplexed. Had just one of the cats not eaten this product, would have not thought so much about it ~ but the three of them will not eat it even when mixed with what they will eat. December 15, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by so far so good i have friends who use this product and their cats have lost weight and look great - have really high energy levels in advanced years - and use less litter. I am expecting great things from Wellness Core. I only began feeding it to my "wild child" a few days ago, and I can already tell that her energy level is UP from before. So give me six months or so and request another review. Thx. May 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by great pet food Wellness Core has been a great food for my pets. Both our animals are thriving on it and their coats are beautiful. Neither animal hesitates in eating meals with Core. February 24, 2013
