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.

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!

Wellness CORE Grain-Free Indoor Formula Dry Cat Food is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 123.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality Dry Cat Food 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use the dry food to supplement the wet food Feed my two youngest cats the Wellness Grain Free dry food along with the Wellness wet food. Vet asked what food the cats ate because they are so healthy with beautiful coats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the only dry food our cat will eat. Her coat visibly improved after we switched from the kitten food--now she has a beautiful, soft, shiny, black coat. No grain, must be tasty, since she likes it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats enjoy this high-quality, healthy food I switched my cats to Wellness CORE in hopes of improving their health as far as weight goes. They were eating a certain brand of unhealthy food with lots of corn recommended by my vet. After reading a ton online, I found this to be the one of the best dry cat foods I can find locally in stores. The ingredients speak for themselves. I was so anxious to start my cats on a new healthy food. So I mixed the new food with their current (unhealthy) food over a ten day period, very slowly decreasing the amount of their current food and increasing Wellness CORE. Well, the first four or five days, it was a nightmare trying to get the older cat to eat the new pebbles of food; my younger cat ate it right up. I would find the CORE kibbles around the food bowl and the old food all eaten up. He would literally eat around and spit out the new food which is normal for cats experiencing this change since they don't consider the new food something that's safe to eat yet. I was disappointed at first but I kept trying. Eventually, by day seven, both cats were eating Wellness CORE with no hesitation. No more food around the bowl. I haven't noticed a weight change yet but their coats are shiny and they have lots more energy. They definitely eat a lot less now since this high-quality food is packed with animal protein unlike a lot of commercial pet foods. I definitely recommend this product. If you switch to this food from a low-quality food and your cat is hesitant about eating it, just keep trying. It's hard work weening them off junk food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less expensive alternative 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.
