What is Wellness CORE Reduced Fat Dry Dog Food?

How it works:
Wellness CORE Reduced Fat Formula contains 28% less fat than the original CORE formula. It contains higher amounts of protein and fiber to keep dogs satisfied without the excessive fat and calories, thereby promoting and maintaining a healthy weight.

Cautions:
Not recommended for puppies.

Daily Nutritional Guide for Wellness CORE Reduced Fat Formula Dry Dog Food:

Feed to adult dogs over 1 year that are less active or need to lose weight.
Slowly transition your dog from his or her current diet to their new food. Mix your dog's old food and Wellness CORE Reduced Fat Formula together over a period of 5-7 days, and gradually increase the amount of new food daily so that by day 7 your dog is eating 100% new food.

It contains 25% less fat than the CORE original formula but has more fiber to helps dogs feel full longer.

AWESOME! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! My 8 yr old lab was overweight and getting old, or so I thought. Vet recommended I switch to CORE and not only does she love the food, she's lost weight and is younger: happier & full of energy; her waste is more condensed (easier to clean up!). I noticed a change in her within one week. The "old" pup behaviour turned out to be caused by horribly processed filler food. CORE is great; I'll never buy the over processed filler food again. 06/03/2013
poorly designed packaging I opened the bag when it arrived and prepared to place a considerable portion into a sealed plastic container. The entire side of the bag split open and the dog food poured onto my carpeted area and was unable to be stopped as the split left nothing for closure. I salvaged what I could, making sure to leave carpet fibers, etc from the savings, and chalked it up to experience. 01/27/2013
CORE - Great on all counts! My aussie has allergies to grains and had a weight problem from a previous grain free dry food I was feeding. CORE has reduced her weight and both my dogs love the taste and it keeps them free from the skin issues associated with the grains which cause severe allergic reactions. CORE is great! 04/13/2012
