Not impressed

The truth, I'm not impressed with this food. My cat isn't either. It looks good but it smells like sawdust. My cat won't eat it and he usually LOVES fish. Wellness is a high quality food and I'm not saying it's inferior, it's just this particular food is not up to this company's usual quality.

cats will not eat this food

Not sure what happened but my cats stopped eating this food. Had two bags on hand and gave them to a friend that feeds feral cats and they would not eat it either.

I buy this exact same brand/flavor for my pup and my cat has always seemed interested in his food. But I was nervous ordering this for my cat because of all the reviews of users saying their cats wouldn’t touch it. Guys, my cat was a fiend for this food. He gobbled up the dry food like he hadn’t eaten in weeks (I assure you he is well fed haha). If your feline is a fiend for fish, they will love this food. I’m sure of it. I bought a 2 pound bag just for him to try in case he didn’t like it and I’m back on this site 20 hours later setting up an auto ship order.

Wellness Wet and Dry Products are the Best in the Marketplace

My 2 year old cats still love Wellness and fish flavors are their favorite. When they were kittens, we soaked Wellness kitten dry food with hot water so they could easily have a meal. Now they love Wellness Core Salmon & Herring - and get high marks on all well visits at the Vet.

It's Yummy, They Say

It's so weird that some people have three cats who won't touch it, and someone else has 14 that all love it. My two cats both love this food! It's a win!

The item came highly recommended by the foster parents of the two cats I adopted so I ordered two 5 lb. bags and my cats won’t touch it. I went to the store and bought a bag of Purina cat food for much less money and they both eat it. So I’m stuck with 10 lbs of expensive dry cat food.

Cats are not interested

Both my cats are not interested on this food. Tried it once, and once will do.

Great Healthy Kibble

I recently switched over to this brand after Newman's Own stopped producing any cat food. It's the first time I've bought this flavor, and my kitty is nuts for it! We will keep it in the rotation, for sure.

Wellness Core Salmon and Herring dry cat food

I’ve been buying this for years. I have a cat that is allergic to chicken and gluten. It’s rare to find cat food without chicken no matter the flavor. I always have to put the food in a strainer to get all the dusty crumbs out of the food. Although switching food is a pain and a process I am in search of a new food without chicken, gluten and dusty crumbs!

No chicken cat food

I have a cat who’s allergic to poultry so we found Wellness Core. I have checked all the places who sells Wellness and Chewy is the cheapest.
