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!

  • Still in transition mode, but I'm very impressed with this food

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    Although I loved our previous kibble (Fromm Large Breed), I'm transitioning my 2 Great Pyrs to this food due to the great amount of joint supplement (glucosamine and chondroitin) found in this variety, as well as a lower overall calorie count when compared to other similar brands. At 5+ years, I need to keep my dogs' weight in check, their joint healthy (they both hate the supplements I've tried) and the larger kibble size is a bonus. They both clean their bowls straight-away... always a good sign!

  • From Fromm to Core

    By on

    They have only been on Core for 2 weeks I have 2 GSD and 1 Siberian Husky. I was transitioning from Fromm which they did well on over the past couple of years but over past 6 mth their coats we're not looking good I don't know if the formula changed but something did. They dogs liked the smaller kibble pieces in Fromm I wish Core had the smaller kibble pieces in LG dog formula. So will update as I see how they respond.

  • Finicky Stomachs

    By on

    Per the ingredients, this is some quality stuff for any dog. But for my 50 lb. Pit mix, it's just not tasty enough. He eats a little bit, then starts snacking, walking away with a little in his mouth and returning when he feels like it. He never commits to just eating the food. I've added chicken and scrambled eggs, I tried a little moisture so the food would have sort of a gravy but he won't eat it. Idk what else to say

  • Great dog food

    By on

    My Golden Retriever suddenly became a very picky eater. I changed his food and he seemed to like it for a week, but then started to ignore it like he was doing with his old food. I heard about this Wellness Core brand from other Golden owners and decided to give it a try. We've been using this for a few months now and my dog seems to love it!

  • Great quality

    By on

    I buy my dogs food according with independent reviews, it is important that the ingredients are good and with no fillers. My puppy loves this food. I feed her twice a day according to her age and I mix in her second feeding a bit of homemade food like a bit of rice, carrots, beans etc. to make it more interesting for her. But either way she likes it.

  • Finally no hives

    This food stopped the hives my pit baby was getting from blue buffalo's top line. She loves it no longer walks away from her bowl. She is not picky, but she was with that food. She is happy so now we are happy

    My Lab got picky with his food at a year old. I even tried mixing wet food in but after a few months he lost interest. I bought this and after 6 months he still gobbles it up!! Excellent grain free food!!!

    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
