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.

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!

Customer Reviews

Wellness CORE Grain-Free Turkey, Turkey Meal & Duck Formula Dry Cat Food is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love that it's Fish Free! One of the cats that I buy food for sometimes has a fish allergy, which makes it really hard to find a cat food that doesn't cause the whole house to stink just from this one cat. But because of that, my cat doesn't exactly like fish either because I've kept fish out of her diet too simply from both cats eating the same food. But both cats (and all the others that get fed another food) loved this food, they ate it and were much happier cats after. My cat's fur never looked better while she was on it and she had seemed to lost some weight on it (which is fine because she is overweight). The size of the kibble is small but the cats still chew it, at least mine do. The bag that it came in it was nice and resealable (note I got the 2lb bag). The food wasn't as oily as some kibble can be. Nor did it smell bad, it kinda smelled a bit good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! My female calico, 13 years old, has had a long history of GI/digestive issues, pickiness of flavors and brands, and now recent allergies. This past year has been particularly challenging. After the third episode of severe facial and skin out break the vet figured out it was food allergies. My girl will only eat chicken and won't eat anything with the least bit of fish in it. So now no chicken ,beef, fish, dairy, egg, soy, wheat, or corn. After trying numerous cans we found the PERFECT solution. Wellness CORE Duck & Turkey!!! She loves it .For the first time ever she RUNS to her food!! She eats the soft so I was over the moon to find the dry kibble. If your furry baby has food issues this may be your answer. My girl now no longer throws up her food, had diarrhea or constipation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Picky cats Jorge and Blu did not like this dry food. Mixed with their other dry food, Jorge picks out the other and leaves the Core. Blu has taken a dislike to all dry food. I gave it only 1star because the cats did not like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 out of 3 vote yes! The food that my cats had been eating for the last two years changed abruptly and they were very unhappy. To the point where one of my cats was starving herself rather than eating it. So I had to figure out a new option fast. I did a lot of research and this seemed like the best option. I figured I would introduce it properly, and gradually so that they could get used to it. On day one they had already tried to chew through the bag. Safe to say, it's a big win. I'm happy to have found his food and on the first try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for cat who has food sensitivities or allergies For quite some time my cat was throwing up after eating dry food. I tried different brands of sensitive stomach dry food to no avail. Talking to my vet, his only answer was that the cat was eating too fast. I wasn't buying it! Finally, I discovered Wellness Core dry cat food (Turkey and Duck) and he hasn't gotten sick from the food. It has been several weeks since I've gotten Zabu on this food and he hasn't thrown up at all. He also loves his dry food! I would highly recommended this dry food for any cat Mom or Dad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best cat food I've found My cat evidently has food allergies and her hair was coming out. After changing her diet to Core, her hair is starting to grow back in and she is putting on weight again. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for cats with food sensitivity I have 3 cats. One has irritable bowel disease and another had soft stools. This food has cleared up both of their issues. They all like the taste. Wellness is high quality pet food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can you say, "Kitty Crack"? My cats love these crunchies. No matter how quietly I lift the lid on the cannister that holds them (to treat one cat for a trick, like "high five"), the other comes on the fly. We are careful to limit dry food on the advice of the vet; my cats would eat them exclusively if they could.
