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, Protein-Focused Dry Food

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.

Grain-Free, Protein-Focused Dry Food
The CORE Difference

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.

Fresh, Whole Food Ingredients

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.



Good source of antioxidants, vitamin A, vitamin C and dietary fiber, which helps with joint problems and promotes overall gastrointestinal health.



Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids which improve the shine of the pet's coat and high in fiber which helps move food through the digestive system.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 109 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best food on the market I have spent many hours researching dog foods online. I know that most of the grocery store labels are complete garbage. I am a huge advocate for healthy eating for not only ourselves, but our fur babies. I have had my dog for almost two years now and wanted to get the best food I possibly could. I came across Wellness Core through my research and I can say hands down it is my dogs favorite. I feel good knowing he is being fed properly. The price is obviously higher, but like anything, you get what you pay for. I have no issues paying $10 more for food I know is helping my dog. Hes lean, toned and his coat is beautiful. We get comments all the time. Don't think twice about jumping in on this product line. After all, it's for the health of our pets. January 6, 2017
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very Little "WILD GAME" Meat - Disappointed This product is primarily based on Lamb Meal. While Duck (weight = plus water), the rabbit and wild boar (both weights = plus water) are so WAY down in the ingredient list. This product is lamb, turkey, and duck with pea protein instead of WILD GAME as advertised This is the one WELLNESS OCEAN CORE products I would not purchase again. January 11, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for diet sensitive dogs I have a 6 year old bulldog named Aretha. She gets raging red ears that are really greasy and smelly when she eats anything with grain or chicken. She is obviously distressed and scratches herself non stop during a flare up. Since switching to your grain free food, she hasn't had a single episode. We bounce between the whitefish and the wild game flavors. She loves them both. January 3, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by They love it and their coats are beautiful I have 3 border collies, and had them on regular Wellness, switched to Wellness Core and not only do they love it as much (if not more), but their coats are really shiny! December 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Food I've fed my Cardigan Welsh Corgi Wellness for years. She really loves the Wild Game flavor, and she looks great and has lots of energy. December 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wellness Core is Excellent! I've been feeding Wellness Core to my 3 year old Doberman since he was a puppy. I switch up between the original formula, Ocean formula, and Wild Game formula. After 3 years of Wellness Core, Ronan still gets super excited when it's time to eat. Most importantly, he is tone and his coat is amazing. December 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog loves this food I love the dog food being delivered to the door, and my dog loves the food. December 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs love this! I really love the Wellness line. I feel that their Core line was one of the "original" grain-free dog foods and have had nothing but success with their brand. My dogs look incredibly healthy, lots of energy, and their coats are super shiny too! I switch up the different Core formulas for variety and this formula delivers too! I really like that it has some of the more "low-gycemic" carb choices too (i.e., chickpeas, lentils, etc.). I would highly recommend this food! November 26, 2016
