Description

For every Wellness product purchased at Chewy.com from December 5th to December 19th, 2016, one Wellness pet food meal will be donated to the Jackson Galaxy Foundation to feed pets in need.

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.

For Pregnant or Nursing Dogs: Since DHA is transferred to puppies in mother’s milk, we recommend feeding this during pregnancy and nursing. When pregnant, feed up to 50% more food according to body weight at 12 mos. For nursing dogs, allow her to eat at will.

Combination Feeding: If feeding with wet food, reduce dry amount fed by 1/3 cup, for every 6 oz. of wet food.

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.

Grain-Free Nutrition for Puppies

It's important that puppies receive the proper nutrition in order to grow healthy and strong. Wellness CORE Puppy Formulas are complete and balanced with optimal calories for growth in a smaller kibble size. These recipes contain balanced levels of protein and fat to support puppies' needs as well as salmon, a natural source of DHA, to promote cognitive development.

Grain-Free Nutrition for Puppies
Supporting Optimal Health

Supporting Your Dog's Optimal Health to the CORE

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. By thoughtfully selecting specialized ingredients and managing nutritional ratios, CORE delivers protein-focused nutrition thoughtfully - with balance, not excess.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 166 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Puppy food Wellness Core highly recommended -- seems to be a healthy product October 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Puppy number five I have been feeding this puppy food for over two years now. We are on our fifth and final miniature dachshund puppy. I believe this is a top quality puppy food. I have always gotten many comments on our girls shiny coats and our girls like the food. October 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for sensitive stomach My lab puppy has a very sensitive stomach. Previously, he got diarrhea every now and then with Victor Hi-Pro Plus which his breeder originally fed him. After switching to Wellness CORE Grain-Free Puppy, it got much better for him. Highly recommended! October 12, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Kibbles big for small breed I wanted to like this, but the kibbles are a lot bigger than Taste of the Wild. Trying to transition her over to see if a new food would result in better stool. She is definitely a sensitive puppy. It seemed as her stool has been greasy after transitioning. I think I will put her back on Taste of the Wild and take a stab at another food. October 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far, so good... I am a new Dachshund owner, and I wasn't sure what food to feed him. I knew I wanted it to be Grain-Free, as I had so much better luck with that with my Dane and Beagle. While trying to research what food to feed a Dachshund, this was nearly the only puppy food that was on nearly every website. Therefore I went with it. He has proven to be a bit of a picky eater, but so far, so good! September 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My puppies love this food!! Our golden retriever puppies had digestive issues, so we switched to this grain free food. They are much better now! I highly recommend it!! September 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fast Shipping and Convenient Delivery The convenience of the automatic reorder and the choice to delay the shipment is excellent. Highly recommended. September 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Puppy loves his food. When we first got JellyBean he'd throw up once or twice everyday. I think the breeder fed him garbage. His new food is perfect for him and he hasn't thrown up once. We're all happy. September 23, 2016
