Questions & Answers

17 Customer Questions

How many cups are in a 26 pound bag? And what are the Calcium and Phosphorus percentages?
Answer by ChewyMar 08, 2018
This recipe contains 1.10% Phosphorus and 1.78% Calcium on an as fed basis. There will be approximately 4 cups per pound of kibble. The 4 pound bag will have close to 16 cups, the 12 pound bag close to 48 cups and the 26 pound bag close to 104 cups.

I noticed in the new ingredients list there is no Taurine. Why is this? I read it is important to have Taurine in grain free dog food.
Answer by ChewyDec 02, 2019
This variety contains 0.36% Taurine content on an as fed basis (0.39% on a dry matter basis). The taurine is naturally derived from the meat content and is not added synthetically.

When changing from one flavor to another of Wellness Core, do you still need to transition the food over a 7 day period?
Answer by ChewyOct 27, 2017
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.

What is the shelf life of Wellness CORE Grain Free Reduced Fat Turkey & Chicken Recipe dry food once I open the bag?
Answer by ChewyJul 21, 2020
The shelf life will vary based on how and where the food is stored but the food may stay fresh for 2-3 weeks once opened. To get the most out of your kibble store it in a cool area, out of direct sunlight, and elevate it to avoid infestation. You may also consider placing the kibble in a food bin. Do not empty the food into the bin, keep the food in the packaging for longer freshness.

Almost amazing

The ingredient panel on this food is great. But I took a star off my rating because they use pea protein and the Wild Boar & Rabbit are so far down the ingredient panel. Otherwise, it is top-notch.

Good stuff!

We love this food and have been buying for several years. It smells good, always seems fresh, the kibble bits are consistent, and it is great for my skin & coat & poop. The only issue with this food is how hard it is lately to get, especially the smaller size bags.

Nothing left behind

I have recently discovered brands and the dogs love love love this food. My doctor recommended to get a different flavor for dogs to try since one of them experienced allergies. This has definitely helped change the game. With most foods, they leave some leftovers for later but now they eat all their food. I would definitely recommend.

Warning!! This has lamb!!

I bought this without realizing it had lamb, it's a main ingredient listed on the bag and not the title. My fault. But my dogs allergic, so it was an unfortunate purchase.

Love this food

I have a dog with a mystery intolerance that seems to involve wheat etc. He also has a pancreatic insufficiency that seemed to happen at the same time. My vet recommended going grain free for this boy. This food is easy for all my dogs to digest, they love it and it keeps the weight on my dog who I struggled to get back to a safe weight. I have tried others, this one works the best for us.
