Feeding Instructions

When fed alone to puppies, feed ½ can per 5½ lbs of body weight per day. For combination feeding, reduce dry by ½ cup for every ½ can wet.

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.

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.

Wellness CORE Grain-Free Puppy Formula Canned Dog Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same health benefit as the dry food My yellow lab was not eating the wellness dry food readily so I bought the can food to add to it and now she gobbles it down the minute I set it on floor. Just enough to give it flavor. I think the wellness dry food is really healthy food but she just wanted a little more flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Food! I started giving my beagle puppy, Snoopy Girl, Wellness Grain Free Puppy Formula Canned Dog food a few weeks ago because she wasn't enjoying her dry kibble of the same brand and formula! I loved what Wellness had to offer as far as being a 5 star brand of dog food, but I wanted her to also enjoy eating it! With the canned version, Snoopy comes running as soon as she hears me get her dish ready! She LOVES her food now!! She is only 6 months old and her requirement is half a can per serving but she would eat the whole can at once if I let her! She has a beautiful coat and her teeth are gleaming white! I plan on giving her the adult formula once she is a year old. My puppy and I are happy with Wellness and we are extremely happy about the service Chewy provides with automatic delivery! Chewy is the best pet store there is! My only wish is that there was a Chewy store in my city that I could actually go to, but their shipping is FAST and I never have to wait long for my purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The good and the bad My German shepherd puppy loves this food. I cancelled my auto ship not because of the food, but because 75% of the cans were dented badly. I will look somewhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells good, even to me We had a puppy staying with us for a while who had this mixed with her Wellness puppy kibble. My picky pup loved his own kibble (Farmina) even more with a bit of this mixed in. He had lost his appetite after being ill, so this was great to bring it back (as was the competition of another puppy!). This food will now become a regular in our household. The smell is quite attractive, not 'canny' like other canned foods I've tried. Also, the structure is quite dense and not watery, more like a paté, which I find makes it great to put in a Kong and squish in with kibble to make it last a little longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Stinks, but my pup loves it! I have a 5 month old miniature dachshund. When we first brought him home we purchased a brand name dry dog food for him. After a trip to the vet we were told he was too skinny. I started noticing he would only pick at his dry food and not finish the bowl so I looked for a wet food to mix with the dry food. I purchased a few different brands of wet food, one being the same brand as his dry food, and both worked, he ate everything but I noticed he seemed lethargic and didn't have the energy a puppy should. I also noticed a lot of dander on him and his skin was always itchy. I did some research and discovered Wellness Core has a very high fat and protein content and is very low in carbs. Which is the ideal diet for a growing puppy. The other two brands did have more fat and protein than carbs but the percentage of carbs compared to Wellness was significantly higher. I must say I am very pleased with this food even though it smells pretty bad. My pup has a ton of energy. He eats every bit of food in his dish and his black coat is soft and shiny and he has little to no dander. Great food for a puppy! Definitely recommend!
