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.

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.

Answer by ChewyJun 05, 2021

Ordered the wrong brand.

I ordered the wrong brand. I get Fromms with whitefish and Chewy doesn't carry it. Tried getting Toby to eat it, and he wouldn't. Ended up giving the bag away. Expensive lesson. It also, has ingredients that I don't feed him.

Excellent food

We changed from the Wellness Core chicken to the ocean for our standard poodle. For some reason, she reacted much better to it and it has greatly improved softness and manageability of her coat. Cannot recommend enough.

Turned Up Their Noses

My lab and GSP preferred the ocean over the chicken flavor but still struggled to eat. Changing to Hills was the best move for them.

She loves and it is good for her

Good size kibbles. Heidi loves it and I checked out the ingredients carefully. So 2 raves from this end.

Refused to eat it

My dog likes other wellness core foods but apparently not this one. I don't know if the formula changed but the most recent bag had to be refunded. My miniature schnauzer refused to eat it.

My picky dog loves it

My 9-year-old picky eater loves this food! It's a miracle. Make sure to keep the bag closed wherever you store it-it has a strong fishy smell.

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...
