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.

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!

  • So far I think they will lose weight from this food!

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    The ingredients listed on this food as well as the nutritional info seem top of the line compared to the prescription diet food I was previously feeding my cats. I've tried multiple low fat foods for them, from wet to dry and this food is one that they don't thoroughly enjoy eating... which sounds like it would be the opposite of what you want but I'm assuming its because this food is so much healthier than the previous "junk" food I was feeding them. They don't eat the entire bowl at one time, and go back when hungry WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN. My one cat needs to lose about 3 pounds and the other one about 1 pound so I'm hoping that after a couple months this food will make this possible The ingredients listed on this food as well as the nutritional info seem top of the line compared to the prescription diet food I was previously feeding my cats.

  • Healthy Cats who clean their plates!

    By on

    All of our cats love Wellness products and they lick their plates clean every time! We used various Wellness products and same results. We use Core In-door formula currently. Our cats stay healthy and for the most part only visit the vet for annual checkups. We had a cat who began stages of kidney failure at 18 years old and the doctor was even amazed by her improved health as a result to our switching to Wellness after finding out her diagnoses but in time the disease caught up. We used it ever since and 10 years now.

  • New package/kibble size

    By on

    I have been feeding my two cats Wellness Core Indoor along with signature selects for the past two years. I just received a new dry bag today. There is updated packaging and upon opening it, a new kibble size. I could describe it as a half moon shape and smaller compared to the rounder, larger shape in old package. My cats went crazy for it, but one tends to eat so fast he vomits at times. This kibble seems too small for them to chew, I couldn't even hear them crunch it. Time will tell if it will work, but it looks more like the size of kitten food. I have always been happy with Wellness, but I wish they did not change the size of the kibble.

  • Cats don't like

    By on Top 25 Contributor

    My cats are junk food kibble addicts and they are very hesitant to eat this so I'm guessing it doesn't taste very good to them. Must be the "low fat indoor" aspect cause they typically like the wellness Core line

  • I trust it

    By on

    I have been feeding my cats Wellness for years-I started because it was one of the few dry cat foods that did not contain grains. Now many more do not, but I still feed it because I think it is a quality food.

  • Great product and great service

    By on

    I did a lot of research before I chose Wellness Core Indoor for my cats. It is grain free and lower fat which is exactly what I was looking for. This was my first purchase from Chewy and I was very pleased with the process.

  • Good Quality Dry Cat Food

    By on

    I have been trying a few different dry cat foods over the years. I have learned that carbs are not good for cats (for example, grains like rice) but that high-protein diets upset at least one of my cats' digestive system. I have finally found the Wellness brand, which is a nice middle ground. My picky boy did not like the regular indoor formula, but he will eat the grain-free one. Good for him for developing a discerning palate. :) Overall, I'm generally happy so far.

  • Less expensive alternative

    By on

    I have been feeding Core for years. There are higher quality foods on the market but Core is a good quality food and about midrange on price. 1 large bag will feed 5 cats for a month.

  • Wellness Core Grain Free Indoor Cat Food

    By on

    Jack, my big beautiful black Cat will Not eat any other food expected Wellness Core Grain-Free Indoor Cat Food. He is a rescue cat so when I got him I tried several wet foods and he would smell them then turn and walk away. All he will eat is this dry food. I tried people food also. Nope! The Vet said not to worry as this is a very good food and has every thing he needs as long as he drinks water. We've lived together now for 4 years. He is very playful and vocal in his wants. He is also very lovable and demanding of my attention. When I occasionally take him to the Vet I'm told he is in excellent health. Thanks to Wellness Core Grain Free Indoor Cat Food.
