Combination Feeding: If feeding with Wellness wet food, reduce dry amount fed by 1/8 cup for every 2 tbsp of wet food.

Transition Instructions

The best way to transition your pet onto a new food is to gradually introduce the food by mixing it with the old diet (starting by mixing 90% old with 10% new and increase new by 10% each day until the bowl is full of only Wellness). Mixing the food will allow your pet to acclimate to the new taste and not overindulge on the new food.

When food transition is not an option, there are a few ways to ensure a good transition:

Feed multiple, smaller volume meals. This will decrease the likelihood of over-consumption and provide for a more consistent, firm stool. Add clean warm water to the food to help soften it. Add a digestive aid such a boiled brown rice or sugar-free canned pumpkin.

About Wellness CORE Dry Dog Food

    They Both Love It

    By Treats on Sep 11, 2020

    Both our Chiweenies Love this food and gobble it up - no problem! Been eating it for years. They get a small scoop of the recommended amount in the a.m.. Also, Wellness Core soft in weight management at the recommended scoop amount (tablespoon) in the p.m.. Maybe a small treat or two in between. Trust - neither are losing any poundage - and are both tipping it on the heavy side. The run around in the yard the normal amount during the day. Can’t imagine if the were eating full fat formulas! WoWZa!

    Like the ingredients.

    By Steve on Oct 3, 2020

    One of my dogs loves it. The other chooses not to eat it unless I mix it with Plain Greek Yogurt. She’s spoiled! Small kibble. Wish the bag had a resealable top. I think it’s a pretty healthy dog food.

    Best Dog Food Out There

    By Jen10 on Aug 14, 2020

    I love wellness brand because I know their food sources are reliable (aka not roadkill) and healthy. Also, this healthy weight brand has really helped my tiny dog with his gland problems because of all the high fiber so I love this brand of food especially :)

    Great NutritiousFood

    By Momsie on Oct 9, 2019

    My two Chihuahuas needed to watch their weight according to our wonderful vet so I switched them to Healthy Weight Wellness and they are doing quite well with this. They appear satisfied and their coat is so shiny and they are more active than before the switch. I recommend highly, and Chloe and Lilykins do too!! Chewy makes it so affordable and I love the home delivery.

    Wellness Core

    By Doglover on Jul 29, 2019

    My dog seems to love it. Vet wanted her to be on a low calorie diet and we wanted her to still have all the nutrients in it. We had been given her the Core regular food but wanted to try the weight control. She really seems to enjoy this very much. Thanks!
