Transition Instructions

This food is formulated for adult, non-reproducing cats over one year old as kittens and pregnant or nursing mothers have special nutritional requirements. It is important to slowly transition your cat 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 cat may tend to eat more of this food. Watch initially to see if you need to adjust regular eating patterns. Give your cat 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 cat's diet. Nutrition is the foundation of wellbeing, but be sure to give your cat plenty of love, exercise and see your veterinarian regularly!

Supporting Your Cat'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.

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.

By thoughtfully selecting specialized ingredients and managing nutritional ratios, CORE delivers protein-focused nutrition thoughtfully - with balance, not excess.

  • Way too costly, Not a hit with my furbabies

    By on

    Got this after one cat had some teeth extracted thinking it would be softer for him to work back onto "dry" food with, but he will only eat a couple pieces at a time. Have two other cats who won't even consider eating it and they have no tooth issues. One of the other cats is a "trash panda" type who will eat out of the garbage if we aren't careful and he wants nothing to do with it. Needless to say, I am now stuck with some VERY expensive food I can't use.

  • Too expensive and not worth it!

    By on

    I bought this food because I love this brand in wet food for my kitties. This food didn’t even look good. It is like soft pellets and my cats would even try it.

  • WOW!She loves it!

    Zina, my kitty cat of 11 years, had begun to be tired of the food I gave her... the first time we opened the food bag she went crazy for it! I'm so pleased that she loves something so good for her. :)

    My cats love this food. They like it even more than their canned. I use it as a topper, but we're slowing increasing the amount of the air dried. Very happy so far.

  • Semi Moist Healthy Food

    By on Top 25 Contributor

    I feed my cats mainly wet food for the water content and because the vet said the canned more closely resembles a cat's natural diet over dried crunchy kibble; however, there are a few instances when I feed a particularly rich food (for example, Tiki Cat Sardine and Lobster) that I feel the cats need a little something extra added into their dinners. This semi moist food comes in very handy for that purpose. I also use this when I have to travel overnight and the cats are on the road with me.....I can just scoop this out and not have to full around with canned food. My cats seem to enjoy this flavor as well as the Chicken and Turkey too. I have actually emailed Wellness and asked them to I feed my cats mainly wet food for the water content and because the vet said the canned more closely resembles a cat's natural diet over dried crunchy kibble; however, there are a few instances when I feed a particularly rich food (for example, Tiki Cat Sardine and Lobster) that I feel the cats need a little something extra added into their dinners.

For those who have tried the Real Meat Company air dried cat food , in comparison, this Wellness is MUCH softer and more moist. This is also a little softer than the air dried by Ziwi Peak too. … more

  • Perfect for older cats-

    By on

    My 17 year old cat seemed to have some difficulty eating the hard kibble he had enjoyed all his life. He had no trouble at all switching to this new food that's healthy and softer to chew. It's a little more expensive but well worth the price.

  • Is this stuff made of rubber??

    By on

    Weird little pellets. My cats would eat everything else including a cardboard box, plastic bag, dog hair from the floor, and old leaves tracked in from outside but would not touch this stuff.

  • Senior cat no longer has digestion problem.

    By on

    My 12 year old cat has had problems with loose smelly stools whenever presented with a food containing any kind of grain. And he loves to crunch his food! This food solved all the gut problems within days. Keeps him happy and chewing away. Not being as hard as a dry food, it's easier on his aging teeth too.
