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

For pregnant or nursing dogs: Since DHA is transferred to puppies in mother’s milk, we recommend feeding this during pregnancy and nursing. When pregnant, feed up to 50% more food according to body weight at 12 mos. For nursing dogs, allow her to eat at will.

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.

    Pomeranian puppy loves it!

    By on

    This is the first food we've tried after switching from the breeder's sample. We've been using it for the past few weeks(age 11 weeks - 15 weeks [current]), and he seems to really like it! It's kind of expensive, but he's so small that it should continue to last awhile!

    Picky eater loves it!

    By on

    I have been trying to find a food my Lily would eat for 2 years. She has food allergies and she seems to always want what's bad for her until I ordered this. I have zero problems getting her to eat this. She even begs for more. She'll even eat it if mixed with the wet food which she never does. Normally she'll spit the hard food out and just eat the wet food off it but not with this.

    He loves it but I hate it

    By on

    My little guy loves this food but his stools smell so bad and it makes his stool too soft. He has ended up getting it on himself and bringing it into the house. Very disappointed.

    Great puppy food

    By on

    I babysat my mom’s morkies a few weeks back and she brought this food for them. I looked at the ingredients and knew I had to get some for my yorkie puppy. She loves the food, great ingredients and her coat is so shiny!

    Very happy with this puppy food

    By on

    We got our cavapoo puppy about two months ago; she seemed to be doing fine on her Purina puppy food, but when I checked the ingredients and saw that most of it was corn and very little meat, I decided to look for an alternative. I figured that since our dog is so small and eats so little, she might as well have good quality food. She's been on this food for a few weeks now - the transition caused no problems on her digestive system, and she always gobbles up her food. I definitely plan to keep her on this puppy food and will try out the adult version of it as well. I would definitely recommend it to similar small dogs.

    My Maltipoo loves this food . She’s very small at 2.13 lbs at 11 weeks and the small pieces are great for her.

    Mikey's dinner

    By on

    I bought the Wellness Core Grain-Free Small Puppy Deboned Turkey Recipe for my 6 month old Cocker Spaniel baby boy Mikey, he absolutely loves it. Mikey runs to me when he hears me open the pkg. and always wants more. My 3 Adult Cocker Spaniel girls love it as much too.

    Tasty for the pupper

    By on

    My foster loves this. He was really underweight, and this has helped him plump up. He also needs small bites or he chokes. It’s has a perfect kibble size.

    New Puppy loves her food

    By on

    I searched for a high quality food that had small kibble size and salmon in its ingredients. This was my final decision. Because my new puppy is only 2.8 lbs, I also use the Wellness canned puppy food to moisten the food for her tiny teeth. She readily eats her serving. I was given another food from the breeder...which was highly recommended and claimed if I kept my puppy of that food, she would have a health warranty of 5 years from the breeder. I could not understand the scientific logic of any dog food that could guarantee the health of my puppy from genetic diseases. Therefore, I declined the 5 year breeder warranty and chose Wellness Core small breed.

    Real Fan of Wellness CORE Dog Food

    By on

    Having done a lot of research on dog foods I believe this is a very good food. My puppy is loving the CORE Small Breed Puppy food and my older dog happily eats the Small Breed Adult version. I love to be able to get both from Chewy!
