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.

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.

  • Better than Orijen!

    By on

    When Orijen terminated their relationship with Chewy, I was forced to re-evaluate my dog food of choice. After an exhaustive search, I picked Wellness Core Grain-free and am on my second bag so far. Both my dogs (spoos) love it and it seems even better for their coat and skin than the higher priced but no-longer-available (from Chewy) previous variety.

  • Everyone eats it...cats too!

    By on

    My dog loves it. No problem there. My concern is my six cats love it too. When I fill up her bowl, the cats come in and push her away. Since the nutritional needs of cats differ from dogs, I have to be proactive in keeping them away from her food. I keep their food dish full of Wellness cat food, which they also love. To get them away from the dog food I open their bag of food and pour a little on top of whats already there and they rush over to their own food and huddle around the bowl.

  • He Loves It!

    By on

    I usually buy the Wellness Healthy Weight (small breed) for my 20 lb dog. I decided to try something different this time and picked the Wellness Core. He loved it!! It is a bit bigger than the small breed but he has no problem with it.

  • Making pets and owner HAPPY

    By on

    My son and family recommend Chewy. He had bought my Poodle puppy for me. And said this is the way to go mom. So I went with it. Happy I have tried it and will continue to do so as well as my recommendation.

  • Labrador hates it :(

    By on

    Unfortunately, my dog hates this food. He looks at it like, "You want me to do what?" He will eat just about anything, so I'm bummed that we struck out on this one. Back to the drawing board! (Chewy's C/S is amazing, though!)

  • Best all around food I have found

    By on

    After trying several high end grain free foods, I finally see the promised results ! This food is making a real difference in my dogs appearance and energy level. My dog has very sensitive skin and since feeding Wellness CORE is getting some relief from hotspots. Most high end foods are too rich for him, this one seems to have the right balance Very pleased with this product.
