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.

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.

finicky cat says no

I am sure this is a great product for some one's cats. I had hoped to find a "healthier" cat food for my finicky female - one without the grains - and this one fit the bill. However, she won't touch it. My less finicky -will eat almost anything- male cat won't touch it either. Neither seemed remotely interested in the food even though I offered it several times. The Core cat food comes in a resealable bag (very nice!) and it smells very fish like, but the bite size is very, very tiny - almost the size of a piece of barley in soup. The bite size may be an issue as it is small enough for a grown cat to just swallow without chewing it. Sigh..... I wish that we could buy the inexpensive 2 or 3 oz samples of cat foods again, so I could try out a new product without spending $12 (or more) for something only to find out that my cats will not touch it. In the past, when discovering this lack of interest by my cats, I have tried to feed the foods to my neighborhood strays. Unfortunately, if my cats won't touch it, the strays usually won't touch it either, so I end up just tossing it. I will try to see if the strays will eat the Core food, but it would seem they are as finicky as my female, so I am not too hopeful.
