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 Nutrition for a Healthy Weight
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.

The CORE Difference

Wellness CORE provides a balanced profile of high-quality, natural ingredients appropriate for everyday feeding. These grain-free recipes contain absolutely no meat by-products, artificial colors, flavorings, preservatives, corn, wheat or soy.



Great source of fiber and vitamin C and boosts the immune system, supports skin and heart health and helps the body release toxins.



Exceptionally rich in carotenoids, including beta-carotene and lutein, and also contains quercetin, a phytochemical with antioxidant properties.



Excellent source of fiber and minerals and a good natural source of beta carotene, an antioxidant essential for neutralizing free radicals.



Highly nutritious vegetable which is high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin and also a good source of calcium.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 258 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by my dog lost weight My dog(lab mix) has been on weight mgt.dog food for more than a few years but started to vomit once a week or so. My vet recommended other dog food for sensitive stomach. His stomach problem was gone but he started to gain weight and also the dog food was very expensive. I relied on help from the web page on dog food and chose the one which is grain free. I followed their recommendation for reducing weight but my dog kept gaining weight. I gave him only 2 and 1/4 cut and he was always hungry. Last one I am feeding him is Wellness Core grain-free reduced fat formula dry dog food. After 3 days or so he is eating it without any problem. I noticed he has a very good bowel movement-almost 3 times a day (I feed three times a day) with a good consistency. He seems to have more energy. His coat looks excellent. After he reaches ideal weight I might have to look for other less expensive,if any, dry food with good quality to maintain his weight. I like to add I smell dog food now because in the past some dog food smelled nasty which I feel not good for dog either. He lost 3.3 lbs after only 9 days on this food feeding 3 1/2 cups a day. He is not always hungry with this schedule. October 10, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by High quality food I have tried several dog foods to keep my pug's weight under control. This food has worked the best. He has maintained consistent weight for years and does not have the stomach issues he used to have due to his sensitive stomach. October 11, 2016
