For pregnant or nursing dogs: Since DHA is transferred to puppies in mother’s milk, we recommend feeding this during pregnancy and nursing. When pregnant, feed up to 50% more food according to body weight for 12 mos. For nursing dogs, allow her to eat at will.

Combination Feeding: If feeding with wet food, reduce dry amount by 1/3 cup for every 6 oz. of wet food.

Transition Instructions

It is important to slowly transition your puppy from his/her current diet as it takes a few days for the body to adapt to the 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 by day 7.

Wellness Large Breed Complete Health Puppy Deboned Chicken, Brown Rice & Salmon Meal Recipe Dry Dog Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 130.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Switched foods I switched my pitbull mixed boxer puppy over to Wellness from another well recognized brand. My puppy had soft stool and often times had trouble in general, he would take too long and it would not come out. He would be farting an abnormal amount. I finally switched him over after a couple of months. He is now 8 months and it took him a week to adjust and his stool is normal and he does not have trouble anymore. And no more smelly farts. Wellness is great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Misleading characterization of the product My puppy (now 8 mos old) has been on Core Wellness since he began to consume solid food. When I saw that the manufacturer, Wellness had a puppy food for the large dog breed, I decided to switch, since my puppy is a rough collie and is considered a large breed. Even though I made a gradual change in switching my puppy to this food, he continues to dislike the food. I have to add treats or peanut butter to the food to get him to eat it. What I read on line in the description of the nutrition content for the large breed puppy product is not the same as is printed on the actual bag I received. And it is not the same nutritional content as the Core Wellness. This is both misleading and confusing. I'm now undecided if I should continue to force this food on him, or return to the original Core Wellness puppy food. It shouldn't be this complicated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product My now 4month old Lab puppy refused to eat another high quality brand (Taste of the Wild) I bought and I decided to try this. I tried transitioning her slowly but she'd actually eat the Wellness food and spit out the pieces that came from the former brand! She methodically picked through her food so she'd only eat the Wellness pieces. So I switched completely over to this by the next meal and she's been eating it just fine. She never had diarrhea from the sudden switch, No More Stinky Farts and her coat is looking better than before!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product and Delivery This is the only food we have given to our 9 month Yellow Labrador Retriever, and we are very pleased with it. She has grown to be much taller than the average female Lab and her coat is thick and healthy. We have become loyal to this brand and will most likely use the adult chow once she is old enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When Great Dane is your "Dog of Choice" Then Wellness should be your "Food of Choice" I brought my new boy Jaggar home on july 25th and he went right on this Wellness Large breed puppy food without any problems at all, He is my 6th Black Dane over the past 35yrs and this is the first time I have fed this quality of food and I am amazed, His coat feels soft like a Seal and it shines like chrome on black, he has gained 19lb in 4 weeks on 30lbs of food. He's happy and Smart and has house broken with ease. I believe this food increases the brainpower in pups, If nutrition plays such a large part in our children brain development it stands to reason it will play a part in raising a puppy. I am so SOLD on this Food. I recommend this food to anyone that truly loves their giant dog or any dog for that matter. It breaks my heart that I never knew enough to feed this to my other boys......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from better for large breed My pup didn't seem satisfied with regular puppy food so my vet recommended a large breed puppy food. This has made a big difference for us. Since my pup has grown so fast this food seems to satisfy her better than non-large breed food.
