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!

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.

  • Happy cat!

    By on

    My 10 month old kitten has eaten Orijen Cat and Kitten with wet food as a treat since I got her. She has never run to her food bowl (but she has been eating nonetheless). I was hoping to make the switch to a less expensive but still high quality cat food, and was happy to find this food has 45% protein compared to 40% in Orijen. She has not stopped meowing at me for more since I gave her a taste of Core!

  • *WARNING FERRET OWNERS*

    By on

    DO NOT feed this to your ferret. This has peas in it and peas are known to cause bladder and kidney stones in your ferret!!!! DO NOT FEED TO YOUR FERRET. Evo has the same issue! Peas are NOT good for ferrets. This food is only beneficial for cats.

  • Very good for cats

    By on

    We have a part feral cat we do care for, although she won't tame down for pets and holding. But she has been spayed and stays around and in our garage. She does very well on this food and has for 2 years now.

  • Great cat food

    By on

    I chose this brand because of the ingrediants and the size of the kibble. High quality ingrediants. Their other formulas have very small kibbles and that won't work for my kitties because they just swallow and not chew it up and it lays in their stomachs causing them a stomach ache. I will be continually ordering this product monthly!

  • Great food

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    Went from one brand to wellness core kitten now on wellness core original they just love this food. Smells weird but it's cat food so I guess it's gonna smell weird. They come running when they hear me get the scoop. I pour the bag in a petfood plastic air tight container for better freshness as I just don't trust the zipper seal. Excellent ingredients and nutrients.

  • Best variety from Wellness

    By on

    I had my four cats on Wellness Complete Indoor Health (mixed with Acana) and they would literally eat the Acana food nuggets and leave all the Wellness Complete in the bowl. If I put down a bowl of just Wellness Complete, they would sniff and walk away. I switched to this as a last attempt and all four of my cats love it! I've tried so many varieties from Wellness & this Wellness Core Original Formula is the absolute best!

  • Formula change, quantity in bag and kibble size is smaller.

    By on

    I was disappointed that Wellness changed to an 11 pound bag from a 12 for no price difference. Then I was really dismayed to find the food had changed as well. However, the cats liked it better, might be because it is a newly opened bag, don't know. But 'Original Formula' has changed. Be warned.

  • Formula change?

    By on

    My cats loved this, but the recent rebranding with a smaller size bag and smaller kibbles seems to have put them off. I'm going to have to hunt for a new food.
