Feeding Instructions

Serve at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate unused portion. The amount of food your cat requires depends on age, activity level and environment. Always provide access to clean, fresh water.

When fed alone to adults, feed 1 can per 8 lbs of body weight per day. For kittens up to two times this amount. For mothers up to three times this amount.

Combination Feeding: Reduce 1/4 cup for every 1/2 can wet.

Transition Instructions

This food is formulated for adult, non-reproducing cats over one year old as kittens and pregnant or nursing mothers have special nutritional requirements. It is important to slowly transition your cat from his/her current diet as it takes a few days for the body to adapt to new nutrient levels. To transition, gradually mix in the new food over a 5-7 day period, increasing the amount of Wellness each day, so that you are feeding 100% Wellness® CORE® by day 7.

CORE is highly palatable so your cat may tend to eat more of this food. Watch initially to see if you need to adjust regular eating patterns. Give your cat access to clean, cool fresh water at all times and feed Wellness® CORE® wet food in combination whenever possible, to increase the level of water in your cat's diet. Nutrition is the foundation of wellbeing, but be sure to give your cat plenty of love, exercise and see your veterinarian regularly!

Supporting Your Cat's Optimal Health to the CORE

These unique, grain-free recipes support and nurture your pet, contributing to his inner wellbeing all the way through to his core.

Optimal Health to the CORE
Why is CORE Different?

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.



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.



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.



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



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



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 Reviews

Wellness CORE Grain-Free Beef, Venison & Lamb Formula Canned Cat Food is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 64.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kitties dig it I have 2 Bengal boys that are fed the Wellness Core cans. I feed 3 formulas: this one, the turkey and duck, and the kitten formula in the purple label. My cats are very active, and because neither will eat more food I feed a kitten food to try and keep up with their needs. The consistency of this food has changed though I've noticed this order. The label is different too but the ingredients seem to be the same. I think my cats prefer the new texture to the last though, which was a bit dryer and not so mushy. All in all though my cats do fantastic on this food and are healthy. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All 3 of our cats love it. We have 2 girls and one boy. The girls were not happy with Wellness Core Chicken(the boy loves everything) so we tried the Core Beef,Venison and Lamb. All 3 love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love that its fish free! Cat food is almost impossible to find without fish in it. My cat used to get UTIs. I read somewhere that it could come from fish. Since starting her on a fish free wet food she hasn't had any issues. My vet recommended Hills(garbage) and when UTI food didn't work they recommended a surgery! It would have been a huge waste of money and a painful recovery for kitty. Thanks Wellness, for a quality fish free, pain free alternative!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Happy Family Meal! I read on a holistic vet website not too long ago that cats did not evolve to be regular fish and seafood eaters. Apparently, this is proven by a large upswing of vet visits for thyroid problems in recent years. I have 3 in a variety of sizes and ages, and the prospect of 3 cats on thyroid meds for life is not appealing to them or to me! So, I switched out one of their seafood meals in rotation for a red meat-based food. I already feed them a Wellness grain-free product which they love: Beef and Salmon (oops). When I found the Wellness Core grain-free variety with Beef, Venison and Lamb, we had to try it. It is a rich, very dense, pate-style food but still surprisingly creamy. All 3 cats took to it immediately, also to my surprise. They did not have to be nudged or begged, not even the first time! Besides being grain-free, additive-free, preservative-free and by-product free, it has 4 sources of protein from meats: beef, venison, lamb, and chicken meal. Organ meats are included in the form of beef and lamb liver for still more protein. There are cranberries, herbs, and a list of chelated (for better absorption) minerals and vitamins, as well as other botanicals. Taurine (0.1%), Folic Acid and Flaxseed for Omega 3 and 6 are also part of the brew. Nutritional analysis is one of the best that I have seen for a cat food: Crude protein (min.): 12%; Crude Fat (min.): 7.5%; Moisture: 78%. Calories:210 per can. The protein content is one of the highest that I have seen, while the fat content is the lowest. So, my cats' diet has taken a huge leap for the better, many thanks to Wellness! No small thanks to Chewy for providing a gratifying discount on the price to make this and other Wellness products more affordable!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One cat loves it. The finicky one, not so much. My male cat who is a voracious eater LOVES this flavor. He likes most canned foods, but this one is his fave. My finicky girl though doesn't care for it. She prefers the Wellness Core chicken and turkey blend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from All three feral cats won't eat it. The three of them absolutely refuse to eat it. My dog will though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Our kitties LOVE it! It's good for our youngest boys IBD and our other boys allergies due to the protein sources and being grain free. The phosphorus levels are higher then our CKD female's prescription foods, but not insane high considering the quality between this and prescription foods. I do love that this is fish free. I knocked it one star because of the sodium levels...would really LOVE to see those numbers lower (should really be closer to half of what it is).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not 4 my cats It sounded yummy but my cats would not eat it. 3 and 1 kitten. I gave some to my sister and her 2 cats loved it! Hit and miss. grey and no gravy, added some water but they just did not like it.
