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, feed 1 can per 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!


Nutritionally Balanced for Kittens

It's important that kittens receive the proper nutrition in order to grow healthy and strong. Wellness CORE Kitten Formula is complete and balanced for everyday feeding. This yummy recipe is made with naturally gluten-free ingredients and high-quality protein sources to support higher energy needs. Plus, herring serves as a natural source of DHA which helps support cognitive development.

Nutritionally Balanced for Kittens
Optimal Health to the CORE

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.

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.

Why is CORE Different?

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.

  • Not for my cats...

    By on

    None of my five cats wanted to eat this food. One of the two kittens in the group would even sniff the food, turn away from it, and then scratch the floor around the bowl. The physical color of the food was also a bit off-putting. So far my cats have loved every flavor of the wellness canned food, except for this one. Did I get a bad batch? Anyway I will not buy this flavor again.

  • Dented Cans

    By on

    Our two cats love this stuff but the last order came with numerous dented cans. The area the cans were dented looks like they probably came from the manufacturer that way and not damaged during shipping. Highly disappointed.

    I bought this at a pet store my cats ate it - so I ordered a case - now they won't eat it. I'm sure it's fine - my review is only based on my cats preferences.

    This food is putting weight on starving , sickly feral kittens. They are now playing with lots of energy and their coats are fluffing out.

  • Cats Love It

    By on

    Two new kittens and I felt I would try to get them the best, above the Friskies grade so I didn't know what I would be actually getting. They love the food and there isn't anything alarming with the smell of the food either, nothing enough to detract from its worth.

    I have two stray adult cats that I took in and I am in the process of getting them in good health and this was a great start. They loved the flavor and Wellness Core has better ingredients than most canned food on the market.

  • Mollie loves it!

    By on

    My 13-yr old kitty, Mollie, loves this formula the most. Since her surgery, she needs to gain some weight and she's doing very well on this. Since fish is an omega 3, I am hoping this formula will also serve as an anti-inflammatory, post surgery...couldn't hurt!
