For every Wellness product purchased at Chewy.com from December 5th to December 19th, 2016, one Wellness pet food meal will be donated to the Jackson Galaxy Foundation to feed pets in need.

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!

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tiger My picky but lovable cat loves this cat food. And great price and quick delivery. September 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cat likes it Nice to have something besides chicken in a dry food for her. Cats need variety too. July 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great grain-free food I have 5 cats although 4 out of the 5 are mostly on canned and raw food I don't believe in feeding dry kibble exclusively it's just not what cats are meant to eat however as a treat and 1 Kitty who will not switch over to canned or Raw all 5 of my kitties agree on this food as a treat....also in my household 3 out of my 5 have allergies 2 chicken and fish and this food is the only high quality one out there grain free that fits that bill and it's something they all agree on May 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ordering on Chewy.com is great! We have been ordering this food for over a year, but this is the first time we have ordered it on Chewy.com. We like the low carb ingredients for our diabetic cat. He likes the taste. He has refused some other brands. The free and fast shipping is great! We have only been able to find the larger bag online. I recommended this site our babysitter. May 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Choice! My 1-year-old indoor cat loves the Wellness brand food and treats! Just make sure that you only feed your pet the recommended amount - too much of this high-protein food will cause unpleasant and odorous surprises in the litter box. May 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cat goes crazy every time I re-fill his bowl of dry food. My vet recommended Core Wellness as best dry food as it has no grain, glutens etc. Cuervo my cat love this dry food almost as much as he loved TEMPTATIONS. May 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My cats love it! I switched from the Original Formula to the Turkey and was so pleased to find it in the large bag here on chewy.com. My cats both came running when I opened it. I highly recommend this formulation. April 2, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by A for effort, but no deal I'm mostly OK with the ingredients in this product... not the worst, not the best but mostly good. I decided the ingredients were adequately healthy and would be willing to try this if it meant a dry food that would appeal to my cat. My cat won't have a thing to do with this. It seems he'd rather be hungry than touch it. For one, he'd probably rather have smaller kibble (his preference). Even if I mix it with tuna or drown it in tuna juice, he won't touch it (he'll eat the tuna or the juice, leaving this kibble). If I put just this in his dish, he quite simply won't eat. I know cats are all different, just like people. Maybe your furry baby will like it, but my fella says, "Heck no!" April 10, 2013
