Feeding Instructions

Serve at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate unused portion. The amount of food your cat requires depends on age, activity level and environment. Always provide access to clean, fresh water.

When fed alone to Adults: 3 oz Can: Feed 2 can per 8 lbs of body weight per day. 5.5 oz Can: Feed 1 can per 6 - 8 lbs of body weight per day.

For kittens up to 2 times this amount.

For mothers up to 3 times this amount.

Combination Feeding: Reduce 1/4 cup for every 1/2 can wet.

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. 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.

Optimal Health to the CORE
Why is CORE Different?

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.



Excellent source of Vitamin C and unique natural source of tannins (astringents found in plants) that help prevent harmful bacteria from thriving in the urinary tract.



Excellent source of iron, iodine, potassium and trace minerals as well as Vitamins A, D, B12 and folic acid, and has a high digestible protein level.



Supplies good quantities of iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, and silicon, and is thought to reduce stool and urine odors.



Contains vitamin C, an antioxidant, and provides important health benefits as a natural source of inulin, a soluble fiber which serves as a prebiotic.



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.

  • she's eating it

    By on

    I have an 8 lb female cat who I am trying to feed her food with better ingredients than she has previously eaten. We "adopted" her at 2 yrs of age and she only seems to like junk food. I wanted limited grains, no carageenan, not a bunch of veges, with the most protein. Cats are carnivores and most of the other foods have ingredients humans think cats need, but they don't. This is what I consider to be the best food, and she EATS it. Yay! .I wish this formula didn't have as many "gums" in it, but it seems to be the lesser of a bunch of evils. AND again, she eats it, which some other brands she hasn't.

  • Our fussy little Himmie LOVES the CORE chicken and turkey paté!

    By on

    We have a little Himalayan girl kitty who is disdainful of common cat foods and insists on having only the best served to her. Her rejects go to our Birmans, who will eat anything that doesn't eat them first, including bugs. Anyway, our little girl will go through a third of a big can of the CORE chicken and turkey paté at each meal, despite the fact that she is just a 5-pound house cat. But all that good protein must go into her long, luxurious fur, because she's quite tiny!.

  • Wellness Core Grain-Free Chicken, Turkey & Chicken Live Pate Recipe

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    Lovely moist firm patty is a delight to serve! Nice color, texture, scent when tin is opened. Pate formula mashes easily into an appealing entree which is well-received by my rather spoiled & picky lady Persians! It is singularly unusual in that there is an excellent moistness to the contents without being overly fluid. Good ingredients, recommended.

  • If you need to syringe feed a sick cat .......

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    One of my cats became very sick and quickly became dehydrated and could not eat or drink. She wasn't crazy about the prescription food from the vet. One of my friends suggested this, and gave me a can to try. I was force feeding her at that point and I couldn't get any of the other pates to go through the syringe. Well, mixed with a tiny bit of water, this particular brand does. And my girl liked the way it tasted and within 1 day started eating on her own. She likes this and the turkey flavor (I haven't tried the others). I am happy to say she is 100% herself now and I attribute much of her recovery to this food.

  • Great for All Ages

    By on

    My cats range from 3 months to 18 years and I’m happy they can all eat the same food. I rotate a few brands but this is the current favorite of all (tied with Nature’s Variety Instinct Chicken). Even my picky cat who sometimes refuses to eat canned food loves this one.

  • Wellness Core Canned Kitty food

    By on

    Many flavors of this great food for my two kitties, so tried this flavor rather than just chicken. They LOVE this wholesome food as well, but I can tell that they prefer the chicken. Highly recommend

  • My cats are crazy for this

    By on

    I switched over to Wellness earlier this year and my cats really seemed to like it. Well, you know how some cats are -- they like something for months and then, suddenly, they won't touch it. I have two cats, and one will eat pretty much anything I give her, but the other is fickle. When I got this, they both just seemed to LOVE it! The fickle cat will eat up all of this formula and is just as happy as she can be now.

  • My Cats Love This!

    By on

    It’s higher in protein than the other specialty canned foods by Wellness. One can feed three of my cats for lunch. As the cats get older I will be having to go to a lower protein, but for now it’s a great food and no smelly litter box.

  • A hit with 2 of 3 cats

    By on

    The pickiest cat turned her nose up at this, but the other two scarf it down. They both like the pate texture over any other.
