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.

  • The Best Bang For Your Buck!

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    My five month Goldendoodle pup was originally on Nutro Ultra when we got her, but we decided to make the switch to Wellness Core when her original bag of food became low. We wanted to switch because the quality of ingredients in W.C is superior and has them at a good price. Boy am I happy - and so is my pup! She goes bananas for this food, licking the bowl clean when she would only eat half of her bowl and walk away in boredom of her old food. I can also see the difference in her coat, which is now more glossy and soft. Highly recommended!

    My first time using chewy.com has been wonderful. I spent a ton of time researching dog foods. As a college student though it can be hard to afford high quality dog food. After many weeks of researching I decided to give wellness core a try. I felt like it was definitely a good choice and I felt the price was fair. The ingredients have a ton to offer. And my dogs coat looks healthy and shiny. Just do a google search and read the ingredients. The dog eats better than me.

    This product was recommended by my puppy's breeder. She couldn't speak highly enough about the nutrients for the puppy's healthy growth. So far, the puppy is doing well and enjoys the food. (It doesn't smell bad either.)

  • Puppy approved grain free food

    I recently switched from Wellness puppy to this Wellness puppy CORE (grain free) and my dog loves it! He is a picky eater when it comes to dry food. But, when I switched him to the grain free formula, he started to woof down food.

  • Great, grain free, puppy food

    By on

    We have a South African Boerboel puppy, currently six months old and about 100 pounds worth. The breeder had him on Pro Pac Performance food but he didn't seem to be doing well on it. I looked around, and having confidence in the Wellness brand, decided on Wellness Core. He is doing very well on this food. We also use it as treats for training and he loves it. We have used the first bag and there was hardy any of the dust normally found in the bottom of dry dog food bags. I think that indicates a better manufacturing process or quality control and the fact that it is grain free.

  • Great Food

    By on

    My pup loves this stuff. It's highly rated in terms of it's quality of ingredients as well... We were looking for a grain free puppy formula that was of at least "good" quality. This meets all our needs and she eats it. *whew*

  • Not a good taste...

    My pup does NOT care for this food at all. I guess I will have to sneak the rest in her food to get rid of it. I will NOT be buying this brand again,

    Switched over to this food from another Wellness Puppy food. My husky/German shepherd mix loves it and it has stopped all his tummy issues.

    After months of trying to find the right food ... this was it! Our bernedoodle has a sensitive belly and we thought we would be cooking for him forever. But we kept testing kibble and finally found the one he can sustain. Fantastic!

  • This is a High Quality Puppy Food

    By on

    My Lab loves this food! If he loves it, I love it! I searched for a high quality puppy food that also needed to be easy on my puppy's digestive system. I found it in Wellness Core Grain Free for puppies. He has done so much better since switching him over to this puppy food and getting him off the one the breeder had him on.
