Description

Wellness CORE is based on the nutritional philosophy that pets, based on their primal ancestry, thrive on a diet mainly comprised of meat. Each formula is packed with a high concentration of quality animal protein, without fillers or grains, along with a proprietary blend of botanicals and nutritional supplements. This unique, grain-free recipe supports and nurtures your pets inside…their essence…their core. To create a protein-focused diet the Wellness Way, they carefully control the quality and quantity of the ingredients they use, and pay close attention to the individual properties of each inclusion. From source to bowl, they make no exceptions! If you are looking for a food with more meat and no grains, CORE is truly a more thoughtful alternative. This diet delivers the meat content you’re looking for, while creating a balanced profile of high quality, natural ingredients appropriate for everyday feeding.

Transition Instructions

It is important to slowly transition your puppy 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® CORE® each day, so that you are feeding 100% Wellness® CORE® by day 7.

    I chose Wellness Core Grain Free Puppy food for our new Golden Retriever Pup. Our previous Golden, RIP, had many allergies, and we went through a lot of different foods and meds with her to find the right one, but she suffered with those allergies while we tried to find a "cure". Upon getting a new pup, I decided not to take a chance, and started him on Wellness Grain Free right off, and he is doing fabulously. He is now 4 mos old, and his coat is so soft,and shiny, and he loves the food as well. The vet said he looks wonderful and healthy, and I have no complaints at all. I plan to keep him on this food till his first birthday, and then switch to Wellness Grain Free for older dogs. Thank you I chose Wellness Core Grain Free Puppy food for our new Golden Retriever Pup.

  • Puppy did not love

    By on

    I tried this brand after chewy stopped selling our normal brand (Fromm) and it became just too hard to find. While mixing it with our puppy's normal brand he seemed to do fine. But once we transitioned over to all Wellness he seemed disinterested. No more running to the bowl and vigorously eating all his food. He would eat, then leave, then come back and eat. And there were times he'd sit and just stare at me like, I don't want that.Total change from what he was doing. It didn't seem to bother him, no bathroom changes, etc. I could just tell he didn't love it. We have since switched to blue buffalo puppy and he is back to running to his bowl and trying to get into the bag while I'm getting his I tried this brand after chewy stopped selling our normal brand (Fromm) and it became just too hard to find.

  • Picky eater

    By on

    I have a yellow lab puppy and when we brought her home we switched her to Wellness CORE Puppy food. She absolutely loved it for a couple months, she was so excited to eat. But now we put the food down and she could care less about it. She will sniff it, maybe take a couple pieces of kibble then turn her nose up at it. We tried everything, and we even tried wetting the kibble a bit because we thought that she was teething bad, but it's gotten to the point where we are chasing her around with the food dish. Definitely switching foods. This food is a great food, but not for a picky eater!

  • Wonderful food for my babies!!

    By on

    I decided to switch to grain-free with my 2 puppies. I had nothing against the Iams Puppy, but i know grain free is better. I noticed a difference immediately. They have more energy, they eat better, their coats are softer and shinier. I will keep them on this food for good now! The process of ordering from chewy.com was so simple and easy, fast shipping, and hassle free! Also so much cheaper than other pet stores! So glad I came across this company!!

  • Quality product

    By on

    We have been pleased with Wellness Core Puppy so far. It seems to provide him with all of the nutrition he has needed. He seems very healthy and is always complimented on how soft his coat is. He has put on weight regularly, but seems to eat less than the recommended amount. I attribute that to the higher protein content. We have been very pleased with this product

  • Convenient and Pups love it

    We have two American Labrador puppies that were plowing through the 4lb bags my sister was purchasing. We love the brand and are so happy that it's grain free. The pups previous owners gave them Pedigree and they had constant diarrhea now the pups are happy and no issues with diarrhea.

  • Absolutely worth it.

    By on

    Previous food in the same price range was making our puppy sick on a daily basis, and the day we switched to Wellness core grain free, she stopped being sick. She absolutely loves the food, and I can tell how good it is for her already.

  • Puppy loves it!

    My husky mix came to us from a shelter. Terrible diarrhea and food they sent with her only made it worse. Only two feedings of this and prob was corrected. She is thriving and growing. Her coat so soft and shiny. I highly recommend!
