Feeding Instructions

3 lbs 2/3 1/2 1/2 1/3

18 lbs 1 3/4 1 1/3

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.

  • 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.

  • Very good for Shih Tzu puppy

    By on

    So I have a 4lbs Shih Tzu puppy, and when I got her from her mom, she was in a really bad food.. I research a lot and founded that wellness core was a really good option for breeds that has tendecy to have allergies since it’s grain free and has no fillers or by product. I stared to introduce her to Wellness Core Small Breed Puppy, and after 1 week she stared to have diarrhea. Turns out that Wellness was a little too rich for her, since her previous food had no nutritional value, her vet recommended pro-pectalin, and everything turn out okay. Shes loving her new food, and now she’s energetic and happy.

  • Finally!! A food that meets my dog's needs and my standards

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I have a high energy Jack Russell puppy. Finding a food that worked for her took a long time. She started out on the regular Puppy Wellness Core, but she was finicky and occasionally eating her stool. We tried a few other brands/foods, but she was finicky and anything with grains or less than 34% protein seemed to make her restless and crazy. FINALLY, I found this new recipe and decided to give it a try. She eats her food without any fuss or toppings, and the food digests well. Plus her energy levels are more even keeled. I highly recommend trying this food for picky dogs, especially high energy ones. The kibble is nice and small - almost cat food size. It is not as hard/dense as the regular I have a high energy Jack Russell puppy. Finding a food that worked for her took a long time.

  • Likes food

    By on

    After doing research on dry dog food, I settled on Wellness Core for my 2 1/2 year old. For our new 11 week old puppy, after research, I settled on Wellness and she likes it. What more could you ask-a good food and a happy puppy.

  • Will have to try again .....

    By on

    My Goldendoodle simply does not like this dog food. I have to put toppers or treats in the bowl to get her to eat. She likes Hill Science Diet better but I want a healthier, protein forward food.
