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!

  • Pitbull likes it and does well

    By on

    We adopted our Pitbull in March. She had been on Alpo, and had very dry skin, with a lot of dandruff. She was also overweight, so I switched her to Wellness Core Reduced Fat. She did well on it, and liked it, but the dandruff persisted. I tried Kirkland Brand, and her condition was immediately exacerbated. So, I decided to go back to Wellness Core, but try a version without chicken, beef, turkey, etc. Enter Wild Game. My dog really loves it. But, most importantly, her skin isn't as dry, and I haven't seen any visible dandruff in weeks. I've heard that it's been discontinued, so I'm sad by that, but will continue feeding it to her until I can't anymore. And, a note about Chewy's shipping We adopted our Pitbull in March.

And, a note about Chewy's shipping - I ran out of her food on Friday, so I changed my autoship to ship immediately. I expected delivery by Monday, so I went and bought a small bag of food from a local pet shop (different brand), but my order came on Saturday by 11am. Fantastic! … more

  • Pup loves it!

    By on

    I initially tried this product due to Acana's decision to no longer partner with Chewy. My dog has always been a light eater, so I was skeptical he would enjoy this transition, but I was WRONG! Immediately he enjoyed the texture and flavor of the Wild Game recipe... the kibble itself is a smallish triangular shape, which provides a decent bite, but not bulky enough for a fast eater to gobble and choke. As far as, nutrition the ingredients are duck, turkey, and wild boar... plus probiotics and vitamins for skin and coat health:) I'm very happy with this product.

  • On the fence here...

    By on

    This product has great ingredients & is intelligently packaged. I've grown very fond of CORE for both my dog & cat food. The reason I gave it only three stars is because my old girl isn't crazy about this flavour/variety. The cat thinks it's great and sneaks kibbles out of her dish but the dog isn't overly impressed. She just turned 11 and is getting pretty neurotic though, so I don't blame the brand. Maybe if you have an old crotchety dog order a small bag first, to make sure it gets the canine stamp of approval before ordering the big bag.

  • Dogs love it!

    By on

    I have four 9-15 lb dogs. Since Chewy can't carry Acana duck anymore I was looking for a replacement. They immediately started eating the food no digestive issues at all plus it's less expensive :-) and still very high-quality. It was recommended to me by a friend who has Great Danes and who eat this brand.

  • Great Product

    By on

    My dog can't get enough of this food. She goes crazy as soon as I go near the bag. Not only does she love it but it's good for her too! The protein power nutrition has helped her lose 9lbs since she's been on it, and she now has so much more energy. Core is my favorite brand, were never going back!

    `I have always fed grain free. Wellness has consistently been a company to rely on. I don't believe they have ever had a recall of kibble products. That gives them kudos from me.

    My dog wimpers for this food (never did that before). He is 18 mo. old. This food has high animal protein (duck, turkey, boar, rabbit) for a working dog breed. Read about this brand on Dog Food Advisor web site.
