Transition Instructions

This food is formulated for adult, non-reproducing dogs over one year old as puppies and pregnant or nursing mothers have special nutritional requirements. It is important to slowly transition your dog 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 dog may tend to eat more of this food. Watch initially to see if you need to adjust regular eating patterns. Give your dog 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 dog's diet. Nutrition is the foundation of wellbeing, but be sure to give your dog plenty of love, exercise and see your veterinarian regularly!

Grain-Free Recipe Designed for Large Breed Dogs
Supporting Optimal Health

Supporting Your Dog'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.

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice large kibble My Weimer will only eat it if he is starving. The bowl stays full for days. He prefers another premium dog food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent My GSD is very picky when it comes to food. He was on Victor Performance, but I noticed he started to smell. Maybe my dog was allergic to it and that is why he was emitting a bad odor. Once I switched him to this Wellness core, the smell is gone. This is the first time he eats his food and licks his bowl like hoping more would magically appear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just good nutrition We switched to Wellness Core for Large Breeds to deal with our 7 month old Labrador's loose poops. It as helped, and our pup loves it. Nice knowing I has all the nutrients he needs, without useless fillers- just good nutrition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No more itching but my dog wouldn't eat it My dog would only eat this when very hungry. She would skip every other meal. However her coat improved and she stopped itching her ears and chewing her paws. She just didn't care for it unfortunately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is what we've been looking for. So far it's a hit with our dog. He licks the bowl! And his coat once again has a sheen. So far we're very satisfied.
