Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sudden Death from DCM FDA Warnings We fed our dog this food for years. She died suddenly without warning last year. Our vets suspect some kind of heart failure but we will never know for sure. Given the new FDA warnings about grain-free dog foods I would not recommend feeding this food to your pet until more is known about the correlation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NO MORE PUKING!!!! Yay!!! Our little boston terrier /pug mix puppy was getting sick everyday when we switched to "regular" food and we couldn't figure out why. He was loosing fur, and was generally not happy. We switched to this food, and almost instantly no more puking, and his fur is coming back. We couldn't be happier. He loves it, and so do we!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My dog enjoys this. He is picky with certain brands so thankfully he doesn’t mind this one. Whenever it’s meal time he gobbles all the food quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please everyone reading if you own a dog, pay attention to the ingredients of your dog food. Corn will cut your dogs lifespan. Make sure it’s grain/corn free . This is a great brand

Questions

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.

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.

For:

Dogs over 1 year old

Benefits:

  • #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.

Cautions:

None.

Directions:

  • 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.
Tip:

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.
