Grain-Free Recipes Designed for Small Breed Dogs

Wellness knows small breed dogs have specific requirements when it comes to their nutrition. That's why they developed a CORE Small Breed Formula especially for little dogs, providing optimal calories in a smaller kibble size. This recipe is formulated with high-quality protein to help support the higher energy needs of small dogs and Omega fatty acids from salmon oil for healthy skin and coat.

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 5 out of 5 by Best food on the market! We've been feeding our dog this food for some time, and just made the switch to Chewy for the huge cost savings over buying it in the pet store. I found this brand by looking up vet recommendations for ingredients and vitamin levels, and comparing every bag of pet food at a store, one day, and this was the closest thing to the list I found. It's done well for the dog we've had for years, and noticeably improved the rescue dog we took in a few months ago. The rescue was feeding her Blue Buffalo, and she had a very noticeable odor, about her; the worst dog breath I've ever smelled, excessive flatulence, and we knew right away if she had an accident in the house, because you could smell it from the next room over. A few weeks on this, and all of those issues have disappeared. We'll be feeding them Wellness Core for life, and buying it from Chewy, henceforth! August 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality This food is overall a good quality with ingredients that sound wonderful, and prove to be so when fed to your companion for a few weeks. The kibble is small and triangular shaped, it seems to be easier for the smaller dogs to break it up and eat their meal. Wellness core smells good even to me, and apparently taste good to my chihuahua. For a good while she was on earthborn and enjoyed the food, but began to eat it less and less and so has been transitioned over to wellness core. Chewy was helpful and pointed me in the right direction and I am grateful that they did. The food is consistent in size throughout the bag and does not crumble as many foods have been prone to do, I am looking at you earth born. If you have a picky little eater then I say that it would not do you any harm to buy a sample of this and give it a try! July 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vet Recommended My pup was diagnosed with a digestion disorder. My vet recommended switching to this brand of food, and both my dog and his stomach love it! August 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pippa says, "Meh." That this formula is as nutritious as claimed, I have no doubt is true. I can only judge it on the basis of taste. On that score I must bow to the subjective wisdom of Pippa, a small, white dog without pedigree. Lately, Pippa is peevish and now utters only isolated syllables where once she would speak in complete sentences. She will not tell me directly that she does not like this dog food. “Meh.” is the most I get out of her as she turns from the briefly sniffed tho’ untasted kibble to the nearby water bowl. As if to assuage her hunger she loudly laps it up. She looks again at the kibble, then at me, turns away and exits. I hear her nails clicking as she prances up the hallway. Half-a-day later, she quietly returns to the kitchen and cleans the bowl. Pippa, as I say, is a dog, not a cat. With a creature like that to advise me, my reviews are worthless. Buy this product. Your dog will probably love it. May 30, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice small kibble for tiny mouths. I tried this food for my pug that had teeth removed and major dental work earlier this year. With her limited ability to bite and chew, I had to find a tasty and healthy solution for her. And I refuse to feed canned dog food. This is a good food, and I recommend it. August 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Food I have 2 yorkies that are very picky eaters. I tried many kinds of dog food and finally found one they love. And it is Grain Free which was my first choice. Ordering was a breeze and Chewy is a Google Trusted store. I highly recommend this product. August 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by He likes it! Dog sitting for a friend. Clancy was being feed a common dry food mixed with can food and water and still just looked at it for awhile. I gave Clancy a taste of the Wellness large breed (for my Shepherds) and he ate it dry, no problem. I purchased the same in small breed from Chewy and he likes it straight out of the bag. I like wellness and I really like Chewy.com July 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wellness dog food Great company! I received a discount in the mail and figured I'd check out this site. Well I love it, free and fast shipping and $6-$7 cheaper than petco...I'll take it! That saves me a trip and some money! July 29, 2016
