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

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.

    My 8 pound Morkie is a little fussy. I have been looking for a dry dog food for her for 2 years. She seems to enjoy the larger morsels, and does finish her meal. My older dog has been on Wellness Core for years. It is an excellent dog food, especially if you're worried your dog might have allergies. I will continue using this product.

  • Great Food Low Sodium

    By on

    Bought this to give a lower sodium food to my older miniature poodle who has a grade 5 heart murmur. He was drinking water constantly and having to pee all the time. This has stopped and Also he really likes this food and will eat it dry if I give it to him. Hard to find low sodium foods for dogs Should be listed on ingredient list on package I had to do a lot of research to find one I could use

  • Picky poodles love it!

    By on

    We are on our 3rd bag and my girls love it. I have two 9 lb toy poodles that are pretty picky and they both gobble it down. The kibble is a little bigger than I would want but because the kibble has a light and airy texture it is easy for them to chew with their little teeth.

  • Great Food and Service

    My Belgian Malinois loves this food. He was fed Science Diet for years while working in Afghanistan. Since his retirement I've tried many different brands but this seems to be his favorite and comes highly rated.

  • 5/5 stars for picky eaters!

    By on

    I have two dobermans, the one is a very picky eater. Due to her skin allergies we have struggled to find a food that is both 1) appetizing and 2) doesn't break her out. This food is great! Both of their coats are extremely shiny and healthy, plus they LOVE the taste of it. Currently on our second month and plan to continue feeding them with this food. Also very affordable.

  • Wellness Grain Free

    By on

    We have four dogs: 2 poodle and 2 lhasa apso. I thought this would be a good change for them. None of them will eat the food. I don't know if it's because it's grain free or the flavor. I am sure it is a good product but not for my fur babies.

  • A big favorite!

    By on

    My dog loves this food! He has only had it off and on but now I plan to make it a permanent part of his diet. He is 10 years old and the slightly softer pellets are a definite plus from his point of view.

  • CORE for the win

    By on

    My pup had digestive issues when we first got him (a rescue), we put him on this food and eventually his problems solved themselves and haven't returned. We haven't looked at any other options food wise because this speaks for itself. I also believe it helps minimize shedding due to the nutritional content compared to other brands.

  • Wish we didn't have to switch

    By on

    Boxer likes it but WAY TOO MUCH OUTPUT. If she didn't have 4-6 stools a day on this I'd keep her on it. She's been on it for almost a year so I gave it plenty of time. Switching to Merrick.
