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!

    We have always fed our German Shepherds grain free food as they are prone to skin issues and allergies. Our 5 year old German Shepherd had an allergic reaction to Acana last winter resulting in hot spots and required antibiotics. We switched his food which helped, but we continued to notice itching. His veterinarian was concerned that he was allergic to chicken (go figure! - AND the veterinarian said that an allergic reaction to dog food isn't prominent for approximately 3 months; so switching foods doesn't necessarily mean you have solved the problem) and recommended that we switch to a food that is fish based.

Their bag is resealable which is great! The ingredients are high quality and our boy's itching has completely stopped! We, and he, couldn't be happier. … more

  • Great food

    By on

    Our rescue dog had demodex mange and we were advised to keep her on grain free food by the rescue. After trying several kinds, we landed on Core Wellness Ocean whitefish, herring and salmon and we won't look back! She devours it and even our other, not grain free but picky dog, really likes this food. Their coats are shiny and smooth and our rescue girl recently tested negative at the vet for the demodex mites! We intend to keep her on this food long term. It's a little pricey but it's made a big difference in our dogs lives, so it's worth the cost, to us.

  • Okay product, but probably won't buy again

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I bought this for my newly adopted 2 year old Chihuahua. I like most Wellness products and the ingredient list for this formula looked good. She has some skin/coat issues so I purchased this fish formula for that reason. She likes it well enough (of course she likes anything, edible or not), but the kibble size is a bit too large for her; it's more suited for my Lab, who likes it a lot. I won't be purchasing it again, though, so my Lab will just have to enjoy it while it lasts!

  • Wellness Ocean replace Six Fishes?

    By on

    At first my doodle seemed to like the new food, but now he is leaving some kibble in his bowl, while the Six Fishes he wolves down and will ask for more. His stools have softened. Watching to see if this transition is possible.

  • High quality food my dogs LOVE!

    It's a little more expensive but it's worth it. One of our dogs gets the Wellness Core Reduced Fat and it helps keep his weight down. You can trust this brand.

  • My pup didn't like it

    By on

    I've tried some other grain free kibbles for my almost 1 year old 52lb lab/ACD mix and he has continued to turn his nose up and spit them out. He was on the Core grain free puppy version and he had stopped eating the puppy food. I had to do all sorts of add in things just to interest him. After reading the reviews I decided to give this a try. I really wanted it to work for him, but he never seemed to enjoy the fish flavors. He would only eat it if I added in beef or turkey freeze dried bits. The product itself is still a good product, my picky eater just didn't like it. We are transitioning to Merrick backcountry raw infused Beef, lamb, & rabbit which arrived today and he absolutely loved I've tried some other grain free kibbles for my almost 1 year old 52lb lab/ACD mix and he has continued to turn his nose up and spit them out.

  • Great for Bulldog with Allergies

    My bulldog has allergies to chicken and beef and misc grains so when I put her on this, she cleared up (ears & skin) in a week and she loves it too.

  • This is a very good food. A+

    By on

    I really like this formulation of wellness. It contains NO poultry, NO pork either, so it is perfect for a dog with allergies without having to buy a limited special diet.The protein percent is nice and high (34%), with reasonable fat levels. It's very good for an active, young dog. It is also appealing enough to use as training treats! The only reason I am rating it 4* instead of 5 is because Wellness Core prices have gone up everywhere. I used to be able to purchase this food for a little over $50, but now it is almost $10 more expensive. We have removed this formula from our rotation at this time, but still like and recommend it if you can afford to feed it.

  • Fantastic!

    By on

    I have two dogs; Puddin', a 6 year old lab/rhodesian mix and Lil T, a 7 year old chihuahua/pug mix, both of which have grain allergies. I have heard and seen a lot of good things about Wellness and the great quality, and when I found that they had grain free, I was super excited to try it out. The girls also suffer from dry skin in the winter, and my little one just have sensitive skin all around because of dry winters and allergies, so I went with the fish formula to see if it would help them out. Within the first two weeks, both of their coats and dry skin improved IMMENSELY! Their coats are so healthy and shiny! Marilyn unfortunately suffered a severe allergic reaction to some dog perfume I have two dogs; Puddin', a 6 year old lab/rhodesian mix and Lil T, a 7 year old chihuahua/pug mix, both of which have grain allergies.

Marilyn unfortunately suffered a severe allergic reaction to some dog perfume I used, and we actually got the package from Chewy a day or two after she experienced her skin redness and pain. Within the week, her skin improved and all of the damaged skin flaked off and revealed an even more magnificent skin and coat! Lil T quit scratching and licking her legs and paws and the redness in her skin, fur, and nails has almost completely gone (she still licks because of other irritants from being outside, unfortunately.) They both aren't picky, by any means, but they definitely love this food more than any I have ever given them. I am so happy with how quick I got my order, especially since I ordered over the weekend. I will definitely continue to order everything I need for the girls from you guys! thank you so much for providing such great products at such awesome prices and providing amazing service to us and our pets! … more
