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!

  • Cat loves it!

    By on

    I'll be honest, anything from Wellness, I will purchase. My cat loves this dry food. I have it so that she's free feeding from it and let me tell you, it's depleting quickly. I feed her this as well as the 1/4 of Wellness core canned foods twice a day. Her coat is nice and shiny. She was about 6 lbs at 2 years old when I picked her up. Will visit the vet in 2 weeks, but she's gained a healthy amount of weight.

  • Healthy, but not weight conscious

    By on

    I like the vitality and vigor it has provided for our felines. It shows in their skin, coat, and even their eyes. However, indoor cat-owners should know, it did put weight on them over an extended period of time. Adhere to suggested measurements carefully!

  • Cat likes it

    Our cat hasn't been on this food long, but she eats it really well and hasn't been vomiting as much. We'll see how it compares to her last food as far as if she will gain/loose any weight eating the same amount. It cost less than her last food, so i'm happy with that!

  • None of our cats will eat it.

    By on

    We've tried several Wellness brands and none of our three cats are particularly fond of any of them. I'm unsure as to why this is, they seem okay with Wellness wet foods, but the dry foods are a miss. Wellness dry foods are made from good ingredients and aren't too expensive, but you may want to get a small bag to see how your pet responds.

    My Himalayan loves this food/ has been on it since she was a kitten. She is thriving and healthy. Chewy shipping and service is wonderful especially since you cannot find this item in the pet stores.

  • have done a lot of research

    By on

    As every owner wants, is their cat to be healthy and happy. I have done a lot of research on food as far as what's the healthiest. I used to feed my cat Orijen, but they seemed to change something and she gets sick from it. So I went through other food until I found this! The protein percentage is high which is fantastic, and the amount of Omega 3 is very high as well which has resulted in her awesome coat. It's high protein so my cat doesn't need to eat as much because she gets full faster. Definitely recommend! My cat is 3 and strictly indoors, and does not like wet food!

  • Glad I Switched!

    By on

    I haven't been able to find a food in 7+ years that my picky, megacolon cat won't eventually get constipated on. Well, so far so good! Both cats enjoy and THRIVE on this stuff. There is also a lot less puking between the 2 of them, so it seems highly digestible. It does, however, tend to make them more thirsty, which leads to more water drinking (a good thing!) So I try to feed smaller, more frequent amounts to avoid the occasional food-to-water dash's vomitous aftermath. The cost may be a bit on the "why would I pay THAT much for cat food?!" side, but it seems to last longer than even the smaller, cheaper bags of other food (less is more because of the higher protein and nutrition content I haven't been able to find a food in 7+ years that my picky, megacolon cat won't eventually get constipated on.

  • Wellness Cat Food

    I ordered a 2 Lb bag of Wellness Turkey, Chicken, Whitefish & Herring Dry Cat food & was given Turkey & Chicken instead. Iam feeding my cat this new flavor but she is very fussy about her food & eats about half of what she usually does. I talked to one of your reps & was told the sku # for the one I wanted is 1183389.

  • Formula change

    By on

    My cat just turned 22 this year and had stomach issues when she was younger until I found this food. The grain free formula has done wonders for her. However I just got a new bag with my auto shop order and it's smaller kibble. When I compared the back to my old bag several ingredients were missing/different and percentages changed. Hopeful this will not accept her health!
