    Low fiber in here

    By Justfyi on Apr 24, 2021

    Overall my dog likes it, but this product only has 4% fiber which is causing my dog to graze on grass a lot more. I'm switching to the reduced fat turkey from the same company which has double the fiber what is grain-free.

    BEST Grain food out there!!!

    By ZEMG11 on Mar 17, 2021

    Most grain foods have a lower protein %, this one is consistent with Grain Free foods! Also the no potatoes in this blend is fantastic! Almost every dog food out there is stuffed with potatoes these days! My golden doodle loves this food, and it was super easy to switch him over from blue Buffalo. A++++

    Easy Switch

    By Melfunktion on Apr 10, 2021

    Our old food was no longer available and we wanted to get away from grain free. This one has a similar fat, proteins, carb make up with grains. Our dog loves it and had no problem with the transition.

    Jackpot! my dog loves it!

    By ajrams on Nov 20, 2020

    I have been struggling with the whole: Do not keep feeding grain-free because it being linked to medical issues, but when I tried regular food my dog would not eat it and get super constipated. This food is perfection! He never has been as interested on eating as he has right now, he literally is happy when I serve the food and eats it immediately. With all other food I gave him he would be indifferent and eat super slowly or skipped meals. Now, do dogs get bored of flavors? I just wish there were more Wholesome Grains flavors... there seems to only be two. =(

    Great Choice

    By Izzysmom on Aug 14, 2020

    We purchased the Wholesome Grains Original a few weeks ago. I had been feeding Wellness Core Grain Free for quite some time and didn't want to switch to another brand. When I saw this Wholesome Grains variety I jumped to order a bag. Basically the same ingredients without peas and potatoes with added oatmeal and barley. I don't think my dogs noticed a change at all. I would definitely will purchase again.

    Hard to say...

    By Kristen on Aug 5, 2020

    I was forced to switch foods when I found out my 8-year old welsh terrier is allergic to sweet potatoes (only that, of all things!!) and chose this after a fair bit of research, but he's not wild about it at all. He seems to be doing fine but clearly doesn't love it, so I'm going to have to find something else that he likes at least as much as his previous food (Lotus chicken).

    Great dog food

    By Coldgen60 on Jul 16, 2020

    First of all, this product has taurine and grains also which my Dobies need as they are typically susceptible to DCM. They thoroughly enjoy this food and gobble it down wanting more, Love that it has no meat by products, potatoes, legumes, wheat or wheat gluten but do include flax and fish oils including Omega-3 and 6 for a healthy coat and a high protein content of 34% protein.

    My Dogs Love This Food

    By LeviRed on Aug 16, 2020

    My vet recommended switching to this Wellness Core food with grain. I mixed the old & new food to make the transition easy on their stomach but not sure that was necessary. No stomach issues and my dogs absolutely love their new food.
