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, Protein-Focused Dry Food

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.

Grain-Free, Protein-Focused Dry Food
The CORE Difference

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 4.9 out of 5 by 187 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the Money!! I adopted two senior rescue boxers back in February 2016. The both came with skin and health issues. Since a dog's diet is so important for a healthy lifestyle, my coworker told me about the Wellness Core Ocean Dry Dog Food. She warned me it was expensive, and thought maybe I could eventually switch to a good brand (to save money), but not the top of the line brand. Well, if you could see the before/after adoption pics, my dogs look completely different! This food worked like a charm! By the time May 2016 rolled around, my one dog, Daisy Mae had gained 15 pounds and no longer had any skin issues. Her fur feels great! Since my dogs did so well on this food, I couldn't change their diet. I'm so glad I discovered Chewy.com. They, by far, have a better selection and pricing than retail feed stores. From now on, this will be my place to get all my dog food and treats! Free shipping and only takes 1-2 days, that's almost unheard of when shopping online! I highly recommend this product and Chewy.com! July 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect food for two Border Collies For an aging, almost 14 yr old Border Collie and her 15 month old companion, this fish based kibble supplies all the right needs for both. Fast and efficient delivery made the experience even better. October 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great natural dog kibble I have tried different flavors of CORE Grain Free Wellness diets for my three dogs and they have loved them all. I did a lot of research to find one of the best brands when they were puppies. October 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT FOOD! The food is excellent, great quality dog food. Shipping was fast and easy! Only issue I had was the bag was torn. Which is a simple error. Other than that everything about this food is perfect for my German Shepherd. October 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent for allergies I have tried numerous dog foods to help with my 9 year old labs allergies/ear infections. This product is amazing. His fur was dull, greasy, full of dandruff, and constantly shedding. Since switching his fur is soft, shiny, no more dandruff, and less shedding. In addition it seems to be helping his ear infections caused by allergies. The cost may be more than a typical dog food but it's well worth every cent (especially since I recently spend a small fortune on vet bills related to his ears#. He also has more energy and almost no stomach upset #previous foods caused gas problems) . Chewy is great with auto-ship and great prices. It's definitely worth a try if your dog is suffering from allergies +/or ear infections, stomach issues. The turnaround in my lab is almost unbelievable. Like others have posted most other foods have grains and fish formulas still have chicken fat added which can cause allergies. At least give it a try-you should see results with the first bag. Highly recommended! September 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by YAY I finally get to be one of those people who can leave rave reviews for a food. my poor dogs been suffering some mild allergies, itching (constant itching and started licking herself too much), crusted up ears and flakey dry skin, and had recently started getting these dry patches on her belly. A week after switching to this stuff she is practically all healed up with no problems and is way less itchy and softer than ever. I love love love this stuff!! and also I love chewy and their WONDERFUL customer service! September 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything my dog and I want My puppy is almost a year old now and she's definitely over her puppy food. So I've been on a search to find something that she'll love but that is also good for her. I started looking on dogfoodadvisor.com for foods with high ratings and low controversial ingredients. That was my starting point, but the true test is if she likes it. I bought Nature Valley Ultimate Protein (because she loved the free sample we got at adoptapalooza) and while she enjoyed it, it also bound her up. She went from "going" 2-3 times a day to once every day and a half. Pls, not to get too graphic, but they were hard! So, then I had a new concern. I wanted something with a high safety rating, a good fat-carb-protein ratio that my dog would love. Knowing how much she loves any treat with fish in it, I tried this brand and it's perfect. It has everything my dog and I are looking for. This is it. July 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product! I have been using this product for a very allergic american bulldog. This site has it cheaper and to the door! Great! September 27, 2016
