For weight loss: feed 1 can per 7-9 lbs of body weight per day.

Combination Feeding: Reduce dry by ¼ cup for every ½ 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!

Nutritional Support for Indoor Cats
Optimal Health to the CORE

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.

Why is CORE Different?

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.

  • I wanted to like this...

    By on

    Wellness is such an awesome brand I thought this would be great, but my 4 cats tolerate it more than they eat it. My cats are young (all under 6 - two are kittens) and they're NOT picky eaters at all but even my 20-lb cat (who clearly eats too much) walked away after a few bites. I thought maybe it was too pasty, so I added some water. That helped minimally. I'll finish what I bought, but will continue to try other formulas. I love the company, just not this particular formula.

  • Recipe Change - Bad

    By on

    Our cat loved the previous version of Wellness Core Indoor wet food. Since the formula changed he leaves much of it, scratches around the dish and walks away. He never liked the shredded version, but always cleaned his dish of the smooth one. We're going to have to find another brand. I'm reminded of the phrase - if it ain't broke don't fix it!

  • Doesn't smell!

    By on

    So one of the biggest problems I had with feeding my cats friskies is that it's terrible for them, but the second right after that was that it smelled awful. I have a low tolerance to strong odors and I love my cats but boy was it testing my patience. Wellness CORE smells like chicken broth! It's great, I feel like I'm doing something good for my cats and my apartment smells like I've just made chicken noodle soup constnatly!

  • Consistency issues, but otherwise a hit

    By on

    I originally bought the 3 ounce cans and my cats devoured every scrap. Because of the rave reviews from my cats, I decided to invest in a few cases of the 5.5 ounce cans. Unfortunately, the texture and smell of the food in the larger cans was nothing like the smaller cans and this time my cats turned up their noses at it. Can't explain it, but I will go back to the 3 ounce cans and hope the consistency doesn't continue to be a problem. Otherwise, great product and good quality.

  • Awesome Cat Food!

    By on

    My girls love it! And I'm already noticing many of the benefits previously mentioned by others such as shinier coats and more energy. My heavier sweetie also looks a bit slimmer. :) So glad I switched to a higher quality food for my precious fur babies.

  • Wellness CORE Natural Grain Free Chicken & Chicken Liver Pate Indoor Cat Food

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    Both my cats tasted this, ate a little, but in the majority left most. As I've stated repeatedly in reviews, they are very picky (understatement!). To my eyes and nose, looked and smelled just fine, therefore, I gave it 5 stars on principle alone! My guess other cats would enjoy this recipe.

  • Quality ingredients

    By on

    I selected this product because of the quality of the ingredients. That is the primary criteria. My cat likes it as well so it worked out well. I wish they had the 15.5 oz cans to make a little more economical. I didn't see that size offered.

  • Finally a Food My Cat Likes

    By on

    My cat and I have had food wars for years. She likes the unhealthy food best and turns her nose up at so many of the wet food I have purchased over the years. She's also fussy about the texture. She eats lizards, but has a lot of rules about wet food. The pate form of this wet food seems to work for my cat; in fact she now asks for the wet food in the morning time. I used to only give her wet food for dinner...not anymore!

  • Fussy and special needs furball satisfied customer!

    By on

    I can't begin to explain how picky my furry darling is about cat food and I he's older now and vet says no more dry food because he needs more moisture, plus he needs more fiber; this meets all the criteria and he LOVES it! So we are both happy:)

  • They just won't eat it!

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    I thought this was worth a try, good ingredients, good reviews don't usually buy Wellness food but sometime you get desperate searching for different canned food that these old guys will eat. Unfortunately I will have to keep searching...........
