I recently bought a 4lb bag at a pet store to try on my 9 years old Cocker Spaniel. Toby loves it. I was looking to order more because I'm out of town. But, this version has peas of 3 different types. This new version doesn't. I'd like to attach a pic, but don't see anywhere I can.

Does the core wellness ocean food have any chicken like your wild game food? My sweet girl is allergic to grain & chicken.
Answer by ChewyNov 02, 2017
This recipe doesn't have any chicken and works great for pets with sensitivities and allergies.

what is the percentage of sodium in the ocean CORE?
Answer by ChewyJun 05, 2021
The sodium content for this recipe is 0.44% as fed and 0.48% on a dry matter basis.

Please only answer if you have used the product in the way I am seeking. Has anyone seen a difference in tear staining after using this product?
Answer by ChewyJun 22, 2018
The dog food isn't made specifically for tear staining but we haven't had negative reviews for tear staining.

Excellent food

I've fed Core to other dogs and been pleased. Currently have Bostons who can only eat certain foods. Both are doing well on Core, however my girl was slow to eat but now loves it!!

My dog loves

My dog loves this food! He waits patiently outside the pantry door. As soon as I put it down, he woofs it down. Definitely can smell the salmon,.

Not sure they're diggin' it

My dogs seemed to have been bored with the previous kibble they were eating and, after reading reviews for this, I switched them. After two weeks, they seem bored with this one as well. We shall see...

Definitely a hit

I vary what I feed every two-three months. My two dogs seem to enjoy this food as much as they did the lamb-based kibble they were eating. I'll be trying it again in a few months.

Lab was not a fan.

Normally, my Lab loves to eat anything, but this food he did not like. Plus, it stinks.

Great dog food

I have a Cane Corso and a Doberman. My doberman started getting allergies with the wellness chicken (it may have just been the chicken dog food and not the brand of food), we had to give her apoquil every day to keep her from itching. So far we started weaning her on this food and not at 100% and we're already seeing results. Both of my dogs love the smelly fish smell of the food which it is pretty strong but what can you expect since it is fish food. From looking at the ingredients everything looks like good ingredients I want them to have. It is pricey but I will do what I need for my fur babies to see them at their healthiest.

Very Happy so far!

I switched my dog over to this food from a poor-quality brand her previous owner was using. So far she seems to love it and her digestive issues have resolved themselves. She loves this food and always eats it, whereas she was not too eager to eat the other food she was given. So far, very happy with this purchase.
