Description

Wellness CORE is based on the nutritional philosophy that pets, based on their primal ancestry, thrive on a diet mainly comprised of meat. Each formula is packed with a high concentration of quality animal protein, without fillers or grains, along with a proprietary blend of botanicals and nutritional supplements. This unique, grain-free recipe supports and nurtures your pets inside…their essence…their core. To create a protein-focused diet the Wellness Way, they carefully control the quality and quantity of the ingredients they use, and pay close attention to the individual properties of each inclusion. From source to bowl, they make no exceptions! If you are looking for a food with more meat and no grains, CORE is truly a more thoughtful alternative. This diet delivers the meat content you’re looking for, while creating a balanced profile of high quality, natural ingredients appropriate for everyday feeding.

Transition Instructions

It is important to slowly transition your puppy 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® CORE® each day, so that you are feeding 100% Wellness® CORE® by day 7.

  • Wonderful food for my babies!!

    By on

    I decided to switch to grain-free with my 2 puppies. I had nothing against the Iams Puppy, but i know grain free is better. I noticed a difference immediately. They have more energy, they eat better, their coats are softer and shinier. I will keep them on this food for good now! The process of ordering from chewy.com was so simple and easy, fast shipping, and hassle free! Also so much cheaper than other pet stores! So glad I came across this company!!

  • The Best Bang For Your Buck!

    By on Top 50 Contributor

    My five month Goldendoodle pup was originally on Nutro Ultra when we got her, but we decided to make the switch to Wellness Core when her original bag of food became low. We wanted to switch because the quality of ingredients in W.C is superior and has them at a good price. Boy am I happy - and so is my pup! She goes bananas for this food, licking the bowl clean when she would only eat half of her bowl and walk away in boredom of her old food. I can also see the difference in her coat, which is now more glossy and soft. Highly recommended!

    Jesse (rough collie) came to me eating this food. He has the best and most luxurious coat ever! His weight stays perfect and digestion is never a problem. Will keep him on it until he is 1 1/2 years old!

    This food was recommended by my vet as my puppy has a sensitive stomach. He has been eating this for a few weeks now and I have already noticed a change. Definitely recommend this brand for a diet restricted dog.

  • It's all in the ingredients.

    By on

    My first time using chewy.com has been wonderful. I spent a ton of time researching dog foods. As a college student though it can be hard to afford high quality dog food. After many weeks of researching I decided to give wellness core a try. I felt like it was definitely a good choice and I felt the price was fair. The ingredients have a ton to offer. And my dogs coat looks healthy and shiny. Just do a google search and read the ingredients. The dog eats better than me.

  • Good food but not for my picky eater

    By on

    I was giving my shih tzu the same food she came home with but was having trouble getting her to finish her food. I decided to switch her to this as the ingredients were better and I felt that she she would get better nutrition even if she just ate her normal amount. So far, at half a bag in, it's been a daily battle trying to get her to eat. On the previous food - she was okay eating all kibble, but with this she refuses to eat unless it's mixed with wet food and even then she barely finishes half of it. I am hoping that part of the reason is that this kibble is slightly bigger and harder than the previous brand and therefore a little bit harder for her to eat. Overall - good quality but it just I was giving my shih tzu the same food she came home with but was having trouble getting her to finish her food.

    Chewy stopped selling dog food our puppy was eating so thought I'd give this a try since it received such good reviews. Our puppy loves it and prefers it over the old food.
