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.

Wellness CORE Grain-Free Weight Management Formula Canned Dog Food is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 93.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wellness CORE Grain-Free Weight Management Formula Canned Dog Food My rat terrier was diagnosed with Pancreatic. The vet recommended a prescription dog food, she sniffed and walked away. After some research into all Wellness canned I found the Core Weight Management, it was lower then the other canned Wellness in fat and she likes it. Now both dogs get it. I have always liked the Wellness brand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from weight management I think even dogs know the difference in regular foods and weight management foods. This is probably a good food but my dogs turn their noses up at it, that's the only reason I gave a 3 star rating. I do like the wellness brand though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the little paw prints on the can This is a very good food. The wellness core weight management has helped as a filler mixed in with another dog food for my diabetic schnauzer! It has a low fat and protein which is good for him. There is the right amount of veggies and blueberry in it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dog wouldn't eat this. My older dog, who always ate everything put before her previously, did not like this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog is crazy about Core! I feed my dog dry food during the day wet food at night. He didn't care for the wet food he was on & didn't eat his dinner until his stomach was growling. I also was told by the vet that he needed to be on a low fat diet. The Chewy representative was very helpful and we decided on Wellness Core. What a difference that made!! Instead of ignoring his dinner he is out by me in the kitchen while I prepare it, jumping and hopping around and then gobbles it up as fast as he can, I even got him to take his antibiotic in a spoonful of Core. Usually he refuses any pill no matter what I put it in. Chewy has great service every time I call and I enjoy the people I have talked with at the company

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2 of my 3 dogs needed to lose weight... so I came to Chewy, and with the help of the reviews I decided to try the Core Grain Free wet food, and I also ordered a bag of the same kind, in the dry food. Just to mix it in. My dogs like a mixture of stuff, or they won't eat. My one dog, Stoli, (part Chi, part Jack Russell) didn't have a problem switching, and seems to like it, thus far. It's only been a few weeks that they have been on it, so I can't tell if there is anything happening with her weight yet. But, she looks to be slimming down around the waist a little, from what I can see. My other dog, Marteenie, (100% Chihuahua), is not really embracing the new food, but she IS eating it. I sprinkle some ground chicken in it, and she will eat it. But she doesn't seem to be a big fan of it yet, and she did throw up a couple of times after eating it. But I'm not sure if it's because of the heat, or if it's because she just has a sensitive tummy. But she does look to be slimming down a bit. So, with this being said, it's kind of early in the game to see if it has the benefits that I am looking for. However Chewy asked for me to review, and I LOVE Chewy, so I am giving my review. Take it for what it's worth :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but thumbs up in quality My dogs like the change I made from Blue to this brand but I absolutely hate the fact that its not pull top to open and I have to use a can opener. It's the little things but when feeding 4 dogs twice a day it's a big thing.
