Feeding Instructions

Serve at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate unused portion. The amount of food your cat requires depends on age, activity level and environment. Always provide access to clean, fresh water. When fed alone to adults, feed 1 can per 8 lbs of body weight per day. For kittens up to two times this amount. For mothers up to three times this amount.

Combination Feeding: Reduce 1/4 cup for every 1/2 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!

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.

Optimal Health to the CORE
Why is CORE Different?

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.



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.

  • Great for diabetics and finicky kitties

    By on

    I have been feeding this brand for two kitty generations. At least for 10 years. I started with this flavor of food for my late diabetic kitty. It was low enough in carbs that it kept her blood sugar levels in check with the help of insulin. Plus she loved the taste. Now we use this food for our newly adopted, very picky and unenthusiastic, eater. She would only eat dry food from an unhealthy brand. I was able to successfully switch her to wet food within 2 months. Now she runs to her bowl and eats with gusto! Highly recommend!

  • Kitties love it

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    Both of my Bengals love this formula. They eat 3 different Wellness Core canned foods, this one, the kitten formula (purple label), and the beef, venison & lamb, but this seems to be their favorite. It has wonderful ingredients although I wish they would make an effort to eliminate carageenan from their food. Good food though that my picky cats seem to find pretty tasty.

  • Top quality

    I love wellness core as well as my two cats. Always high energy, less fur balls and overall a nice shine to their coat.

  • Good cat food

    By on

    Pretty healthy catfood for the cost. Not happy about the carageenan or guar gum, but I'm stretching my budget to buy this and not something better in the first place. Still - my cats love it and it has very little unnecessary plant matter, so win there. High protein to keep them satisfied.

  • Excellent packaging!

    By on

    I've ordered this from other companies before I found Chewy, and it never fails - there is usually dented cans, sometimes even split open and leaking all over everything else I ordered! With these kinds of experiences, you can imagine how impressed I was when I opened the package and there was extra packaging around the cans! Of course my cats love this stuff, they are 16 years old and need the added protein. Their coats are shiny and their weights are ideal! I feed the wet and dry versions of this food daily - they love both!

  • cats didn't like it AT ALL

    By on

    I've used other 'flavors' of Wellness brand, non-CORE, and my vet said it's a good line, but my cats don't really like any of it (especially in hot weather?) But the Core product?! Eh. Not. one. bite. It sat all day (or all night depending on when I served it) and I ended up giving it to my dogs. Wouldn't eat it even when they were really-really hungry! AND it's ***A LOT*** more expensive. Really? is this company selling "steak" or just a lotta "sizzle"? I'm gonna try Holistic and Blue, my vet said they're good too

  • Great nutrition but tends to be tacky and difficult to eat

    By on

    I would expect many cats to love this food but our cats seem to have a hard time eating it. The texture is somewhat tacky--a bit like peanut butter, although not quite that bad. Our cats like either to lap up their food or to bite off small pieces but this food makes both approaches somewhat challenging. I'm still experimenting, but mixing in a little water seems to make this food much more palatable. Our cats like Fancy Feast Turkey and Giblets Classic and I'm trying to get them onto something similar but with lower phosphorus content. I expect to keep trying with this one at least for a while yet.

  • Cats LOVED it!

    By on

    This is the best canned food we've ever used. My 4 cats love it so much they lick the bowl clean! It is a creamy texture… I add a little water to it to make it soupy as cats need the hydration. I've used many canned foods, and this is by far their favorite.

  • Love at first bite!

    By on

    Jorge and Blu love this Core turkey and duck wet food more than any other wet food they have tried. I alternate between this and the Core chicken formula wet food, which they also love, but the turkey is by far their favorite. Four paws up!

  • A must have in our household!

    By on

    I'm sure any cat owner will agree that cats are more finicky than dogs. I feed all of my animals a variety and at six years of age my cat has decided that this brand and their other chicken recipe is a must have.
