Product Info
What is Wellness CORE Dry Dog Food?

Wellness CORE is a grain-free and protein-focused dog food offering essential nutrients to maintain your dog's health. The high levels of protein are sourced from 5 different animal protein sources (deboned turkey, deboned chicken, turkey meal, chicken meal, and chicken liver). Compared to traditional dog food brands that use grains as the bulk of food, Wellness CORE contains up to 80% more meat while also maintaining mineral and fat levels to ensure there are no excess calories.


Dogs over 1 year old

  • #1 ingredient is real deboned turkey meat
  • No grains make this an ideal food for dogs with food sensitivities
  • Real fruits and vegetables provide natural sources of vitamins and antioxidants
  • No meat by-products, artificial preservatives, colors, or flavors
  • Glucosamine and chondroitin help support hip and joint health
  • Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids to help support skin and coat health
  • 100% nutritionally complete by AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) standards
  • Dogs love the delicious taste of nutrient-rich ingredients
  • Perfect for everyday feeding
  • Available in 4, 12 and 26 lb bags
How it works:

Wellness CORE offers exceptional amounts of animal-sourced protein without the excess calories and fat many other high protein dog foods have. By balancing the nutritional levels in this food, more nutrients stay inside your dog's body and are not wasted, which also means less stool. Each ingredient used in Wellness CORE is included to provide a benefit to your pet's health. The high quality ingredients help provide your pet with balanced nutrition and also make Wellness CORE appropriate for everyday feeding.



How to Use
  • CORE is highly palatable, so your dog may tend to eat more of this food. Watch initially to see if you need to adjust regular eating patterns. Make sure to give your dog access to clean, cool fresh water at all times.
  • It is important to slowly transition your dog from his/her current diet as it takes awhile for the body to adapt to the new nutrient levels. To transition, gradually mix in the new food over a 5-7 day period, increasing the amount of Wellness CORE each day, so that you are feeding 100% new food by day 7.

The nutrient levels of this food are appropriate for adult dogs over 1 year old. We do not recommend feeding this formula to puppies as they have special nutritional requirements during their growth stage.

Customer Reviews
Wellness CORE Dry Dog Food is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from my dog loves it i fed my dog a different brand forever but they stopped making it. thought i would try this based on the reviews / brand. when i first bought this i mixed some in with her existing food...she picked out her old pieces and put them in a pile on the floor and ate only the wellness nuggets. she seems to really like it. the only issue is the resealable bag is kind of poorly made and never actually zips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever My cavashon had pancreatitis and the vet prescribed 3 different prescription diets. None cured the diarhhea. I researched dog foods and started my dog on this 10 months ago. She is maintaining her weight (pancreatitis requires a low fat food) and has been healthier than ever. I mix this dry food with 1 tablespoon of the Wellness Core Turkey canned food and she eats it right up.

What is the difference between the Wellness Core grain free and the Wellness grainfree. Is it just the Core name? How do I receive a free sample. My 2 Chihuahuas seem to have problems with salmon. Is the chicken hormone free. Thank you.
