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.

    good product

    By on

    While the air dried food may seem expensive, it is of very high quality and I definitely think worth the price. On a side note, my dog stopped enjoying the ocean recipe and we switched her to a different flavor, but I still had two unopened bags of this product. Chewy customer support was FANTASTIC about crediting my account and I was able to donate the food to a local pet shelter. I will most certainly buy again from them for future products.

    This product smells so bad it turn our dog off. A waste of money, purchased other items with Fish, but this smells like hot garbage in 100 degree weather.

    Lab loves it

    By on

    Bought this marked down on a whim restocking food. It was still very expensive so we use as a treat or mixer with his dry food. He absolutely loves it. People mention the bad smell but it's fish and that's what you smell when you open the bag. Personally it reassures me I'm getting what I paid for. Since my dog likes it I dont mind. And the smell is gone as soon as I reseal the bag. Will continue to add as long as we can afford it.

    I use this for a small dog as food or treats who is on a raw diet. This is a great choice in transitioning your dog over to a raw diet.

    My girl is allergic to EVERYTHING just about...this food provides her w/everything she needs. She’s allergic to most standard meats, she gets nothing but fish, alligator, cheeses, veggies, fruits, peanut butter, local honey, coconut oil and duck. Which is very costly, would be nice if lowered prices on these types of food n treats. BUT she’s worth every penny!! She’s my girl. It’s sooo nice to be able to turn to CHEWY, the ‘family’ is very helpful, knowledgeable and concern for her is amazing. Their prices are sooo reasonable, I don’t have to go to mega stores and pay outrageous prices anymore!!! THANKS to the CHEWY family, y’all ARE FABULOUS!!!! Hugs n slurps from Bella n myself.

    The only fish food my picky dog will eat!

    By on Top 10 Contributor

    I have to say first that this is prohibitively expensive to feed as the main food for any dog, but my picky pup loves it! (Which is weird because she normally turns her nose up at fish...) I use it as a high-value, nutritionally-balanced treat (great for treat dispensing toys!) and as a mix-in with her regular kibble. It's grain-, chicken- and beef-free, perfect for dogs with allergies to all of the above like mine, and the ingredients pass my strict scrutiny. I wouldn't use it alone just for the cost, but as a mix-in or treat, it's great! Highly recommended!

    Saved my dogs life!

    By on

    My Bulldog was going though some stomach issues and would not eat. Was going through bouts of diarrhea and vomiting. Once I got his tummy to settle down he became very picky as to what he would eat, including the prescription dog food he had been eating. I first had tried the canned Wellness chicken stew, which he loved. When I went to get more at the store, I seen this product and thought I would give it a try too. So glad I did. He is doing even better and no stomach issues. Has a strong smell and my other dogs gather around for a bit. My Bulldog is 13 years old, so I am sure the strong natural smell helps his appetite. Gets a little pricey, but as of right now, this is all he wants to My Bulldog was going though some stomach issues and would not eat. Was going through bouts of diarrhea and vomiting.
