Transition Instructions

This food is formulated for adult, non-reproducing dogs over one year old as puppies and pregnant or nursing mothers have special nutritional requirements. It is important to slowly transition your dog 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 dog may tend to eat more of this food. Watch initially to see if you need to adjust regular eating patterns. Give your dog 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 dog's diet. Nutrition is the foundation of wellbeing, but be sure to give your dog plenty of love, exercise and see your veterinarian regularly!

Grain-Free Nutrition for a Healthy Weight

Wellness CORE Weight Management wet food contains five high-quality protein sources plus more fiber to help your dog feel fuller longer. This yummy recipe is low in calories to help pets achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Made with naturally gluten-free ingredients like nourishing greens and botanicals, CORE Weight Management provides complete and balanced nutrition for everyday feeding.

Grain-Free Nutrition for a Healthy Weight
Supporting Optimal Health

Supporting Your Dog'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.

The CORE Difference

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.



Great source of fiber and vitamin C and boosts the immune system, supports skin and heart health and helps the body release toxins.



Excellent source of fiber and minerals and a good natural source of beta carotene, an antioxidant essential for neutralizing free radicals.



Highly nutritious vegetable which is high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin and also a good source of calcium.

  • Working well for Becket

    Becket needed to be on soft food for 6 weeks after surgery. This food is working very well. I've noticed much healthier looking stools.

  • My dog likes it!

    By on

    Firstly, my dog liked it and that's what really matters. But, as someone else pointed out, I wish I didn't have to open the can with a can opener. I also wish it wasn't so mushed (I like giving my dogs chunks since he has an easier time eating it). He drags his bowl on the floor trying to get every last bit out (it's actually kinda funny to watch)

  • It works wonders!

    By on

    It has helped my dog to eat healthier, I had no idea what food to choose for my dog to lose weight, then I found this one and it has worked so far, I mix it with the same but in dry food, she gets picky with the dry food but she has no problem with the can so I rather mix a little of this can with the dry food and it has helped her a lot, I saw her losing weight right away; it does wonders.

    I just started Drake on the weight management food. Drake likes it a lot. I switched to the dry food (weight management) also. Down a couple pounds already. And the auto ship is great.

    My puppy just turned one and is ready for "adult" food. I wanted something that my older Golden will also enjoy. They are both prone to allergies so I wanted a Grain Free product and little calories. I have been feeding them Wellness Core canned and kibble and it must be good because they both seem to enjoy it very much. Highly recommended.

  • Great product in the area of grain free

    By on

    This is a great product for dogs who must have grain free food. Chewy.com packed it very well for shipping and no cans were dented when they arrived. I highly recommend this food and Chewy.com.
