    Wellness CORE

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! I have used Wellness brand for my older cat, and when a new kitten came into our lives, I continued using this wonderful product. The Kitten Formula, with Grain free high protein, is a great head start for my new family member. She is growing every day with high energy and beautiful coat - I am very happy with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful coats CORE Grain-free Kitten Formula is great! Our 3 kittens have the glossiest, thickest coats imaginable, and more energy than we could have imagined! And, they like it! July 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality & kitten loves it I bought this food after doing a lot of research on good quality kitten foods. When I got my kitten he was eating Iams so when I got to the bottom of that bag I started mixing the Wellness in with that so that he would get used to the new food but immediately he started picking around the Iams to get to the Wellness. Needless to say transitioning was a breeze. June 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for more than just cats! I made a HUGE order of Orijen, Wellness CORE Kitten, Blue Buffalo Wilderness Kitten and Earthborn Holistic Primitive because not only do I have a young adult cat, I have 6 ferrets that were previously on a raw diet that I couldn't afford any more. Ferrets and cats alike do best when introduced to more than one food as they can, and often will, imprint on their food as they age. If they imprint, they typically wont take to new foods and can starve themselves until the old food is given back. Having more than one food available prevents this, giving you a back up incase there is a recall or one brand is no longer produced, or a formula is changed for the worse. Not only does my cat enjoy the blend of different foods, but so do my ferrets. Being that they're all high quality kibbles, my crew is adjusting pretty quickly with very little tummy trouble. Plus it makes for less health troubles down the line for my fur babies! My cat is healthy and active with a coat so glossy and soft it always boggles my vet's mind! November 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great kitten food My kitten loves this food! High quality, good taste, made in usa! Price is alittle high, but i still buy it because it's perfect for kitten's growth, best food for kittens, highly recommend! May 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product, fast shipping The whole Wellness Core Kitten line (dry/wet food combo) has done my 6 month old kitten wonders. This is hands down the best food on the market - it makes my little one happy and healthy, and her coat incredibly soft and shiny. Chewy.com also has the fastest shipping - they sent it out on a Monday and I got it Tuesday afternoon! Woohoo! Bottom line: I highly, highly recommend this brand and wouldn't feed my cats anything else! February 21, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by smelly litterbox my two four-month-old kittens were on Wellness kitten wet food that was just getting too pricy for me (they were going through a 24-pack in less than a week!), so I decided to add grain-free dry food to their diet. I expected no problem with Wellness Core as they were already eating grain-free Wellness, but as soon as I introduced it to their diet, their litterbox started stinking to the high heavens. I hoped it was just adjusting, but it's been about a week and a half, and still no changes. I'm worried it may be a digestive issue, so I'm taking them off it for a little while just to see if that fixes the problem (and I expect it will). It's a shame, as I know it's such a great product, and grain-free foods are supposed to LESSEN odors and digestive issues, so I'm not sure why it's done the opposite for my little guys. Very saddening. Sorry it didn't work out! July 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful food I love Core Wellness kitten food for my kitten to free feed while I am at work. I feed a combination of canned and dry food, but I am very picky when it comes to which type of dry food I will purchase, so when I found wellness, I knew it definitely was a food that I could feel good about feeding my kitten! My kitten really seems to enjoy it and the ingredients list is impressive, Chewy also has a great value for it! January 22, 2016
