Wellness CORE Reduced Fat Dry Dog Food
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.
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.
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!
