    Grain-Free, Gluten Free, No Corn No Wheat No Soy

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.

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.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by My kitten loves it My kitten loves this food. I love that it's natural, grain-free, and the first five ingredients are quality meat products. His stools are firm and don't smell bad at all, which is a good sign telling me his body is doing well on this food. His coat is shiny. I like the fact that the food pieces are larger so that he can't eat it too fast. I feel good feeding him this food because I believe this is a high-quality food. He's getting a great head start on life thanks to Wellness CORE. September 21, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Core I usually enjoy feeding Core to my kitties. The kitten formula however is very very stinky. My kitten liked it at first but quickly refused to eat it. I'm not quite sure why. I was saddened as I like feeding grain free and Wellness has been a good choice in the past. September 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucy Moon loves it Recommended by my amazing vet due to high protein, low carb and she loves it! September 25, 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 4 out of 5 by Yes I like the wellness core line for dogs and cats and both of my cats seem to like this food - though neither are fussy about kibble anyway August 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My kitten did not like any other food I tried to feed her! I tried different wet as well as dry foods for my kitten and this is her favorite one August 10, 2016
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. July 22, 2016
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
