Questions & Answers

21 Customer Questions

Does China supply any ingredients for this food, and is every step of manufacturing done in the USA ?
Answer by ChewyDec 09, 2017
All of Wellness dry recipes are produced at their own manufacturing facility in Indiana. The wet foods such as the Simply Shreds line is manufactured in Thailand under very strict requirements from the FDA as well as the other formulas that are manufactured in the United States. As for ingredients, most will be sourced within the United States depending on availability. However, certain ingredients will need to be outsourced (i,e: Lamb, Venison, Duck, Rabbit, Vitamin Packs, etc.) to ensure top quality and freshness while meeting a reasonable price point for pet parents. Lastly, the Green Tea Extract and Mixed Tocopherols (a portion of them) are sourced from reputable suppliers in China.

Why is there so much dust in this dog food?

I've been feeding this dog food for a couple years, a 26 lbs. bag monthly. Every bag has at least a pound of dust in it. I have to shake the bag to get the dust to settle to the bottom. When I get down to the last 5-8 pounds I have to sift it. It worries me to give the dog too much of this dust not knowing if it has excess vitamins, probiotics, prebiotics etc. I really wish this issue would get resolved. The dog food does help manage my dog's weight and does give him a beautiful coat. If this issue ever get resolved I will give it five stars.

As Expected

Wellness products are cosistently good. Unfortunately, to get my miniature schnauzer to eat it requires heavy doctoring. But, it has the fiber he needs to avoid anal gland issues. Fair trade.

Great for Senior Small Breed Dogs

My cocker spaniel/dachshund mixed-breed dog just turned 12-yrs old and was starting to gain a little weight with her regular Wellness brand food. Since she is slowing down and getting older, my vet and I decided to change to a reduced-fat recipe food. Now, she maintains a healthy weight while keeping her energy up for those momentary zoomies!

Magic food

This past July we brought our dog Champ to the vet and we’re shocked to learn his weight was pushing 90lbs. He is a 5 yo male golden retriever and keeping his weight down has always been a struggle, but 89.5lbs was a shock. Our vet recommended looking into a lower calorie or weight loss food from the same brand we were already using. We cut back the table scraps somewhat, but overall we didn’t change much other than Champs food. We brought him to the vet just to get weighed a month ago and HE LOST 10 LBS!!!!! We had started to notice his energy level was a little higher but we never would have thought he lost 10 lbs. This food definitely works! We are continuing to use it for now until he sheds a few more pounds but we could not be happier with the results!!

Great dry dog food

My dog at first loved this food but now not as much. It’s expensive for just a 25 pound bags and I have 3 dogs so it doesn’t last very long. If they continue to eat it I might see if I can find it cheaper at my local pet food store.

Great product

Love not having to haul bags from shelves to car. Our schnauzer devours this just as he did Core Raw and High Protein. Luckily we should start seeing a waistline soon!

My dogs like this

My dogs have been encouraged to lose weight and it seems that this dog food is supposed to promote that. It is still too early to tell whether or not it’s working, and my dogs usually do not like dry dog food. When I put it in their bowl they eat it readily without pause. Very happy so far with it. At least I know the food is not going to waste as with other dog food and I know that it is healthier

Worth the price

As our Bella gets older we felt we needed to revisit her foods protein level. We are already fans of this brand and the transition to this formula was easy and no negative digestion issues. She seems to really love it. More expensive than other brands but her health and happiness is worth every penny!!!

The dog likes it

I hope he loses weight on it. I switched from Wellness Healthy weight to Wellness Core in hopes it works better for losing weight. This is what Chewy or Wellness recommended.My dog likes it. He hasn't been on it long enough yet, but he likes it and has a lot of energy
