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!

CORE formulas are packed with quality animal protein without fillers or grains, plus botanicals and nutritional supplements.

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.

The definition for chicken, according to (AAFCO), describes it as a clean combination of flesh and skin with or without accompanying bone, derived from parts of whole carcasses of chickens thereof, exclusive of feathers, heads, feet and entrails. Chicken meal, according to AAFCO, is the dry rendered product from a combination of clean flesh and skin with and without accompanying bone, derived from whole carcasses of chicken thereof, exclusive of feathers, heads, feet and entrails. That being said, the first three ingredients in this dry dog food is Deboned chicken, chicken meal, and turkey meal. I like that. I also like the fact it has spinach, kale, parsley and blueberries in it.

And because the dry food I was previously using cause my German Shepherds stools to be large & soft. It was like if I fed them 4 or 5 cups they would poop out 4 or five cups, which gave me concerns about it's digestibility. With Core Large breed I have notice a decrease in the size of the stool and it's more firm. The only reason I gave it 4 stars, instead of 5, I'd like to see less carbohydrates (starch). But it does have less than a lot of them.… more

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.

No more itching but my dog wouldn't eat it
on Feb 17, 2017
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.
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.

My shepherd and lab both love this food! Chow it down! And my shepherd is picky. Both of their coats are shiny and look great.
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.

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.
