Rated 2 out of 5 by from Excessive amount of Sediment powder I have fed my diabetic dog this food for the past few years. In the past year the last few bags have been filled with powder from the food. My dog has developed a horrible cough. I am wondering if he has inhaled the powder and its caused an infection in the lungs. I have switched his food and the coughing has decreased dramatically. I would recommend this food because the quality has went down hill in the past year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from disliked Our 8 year old lab mix didn't like the taste of the reduced fat food, and she usually likes everything. I mixed it with her regular food and a few days later she started to scratch and she rarely does that as she's on simparica year round. I tried the core regular first and that was fine, just the reduced fat version was the problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible itching from this food!! We have tried this particular food three different times, and all three of our dogs would scratch constantly!! It would start within a day of introducing this food back into their diet, and once we stopped feeding it, their itching would slowly stop after a few days. No other changes to environment, so we are positive it is the food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 Years on Wellness Core Reduced Fat My lab mix is 10 and has been on Wellness Core Reduced Fat since she was a pup. She is very healthy, has great teeth, a healthy coat, and still plays like a puppy. I believe this food has been a big part of that. The recent concerns about grain free diets has me concerned, but I can’t see any signs that this food is bad for her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best and worth the price! When my Cavalier King Charles was a puppy she was gaining weight and when the breeder saw her he was not to happy. He said get wellness core reduced fat dry dog food and mix it with French style green beans low sodium and add water. 9 years later little Lucy is doing great. Still looks like a puppy. I do feed her a grain free cookie, stalks of the romaine lettuce, cauliflower and some of my rosterisse chicken as a treat. BTW, Lucy is my 90 year old mother's dog but I take care of her. Great small dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Diabetic Dog Favorite I have three dogs, one with leukemia and diabetes. The vet recommended a RX diet for her diabetes but after reviewing the ingredients in the RX food I was not impressed. I did some research on different brands and found this one. I wanted something I could feed all three dogs and would help the one's sugars. This dog food has been a miracle! My dog went from 32 units of insulin twice a day, to now 24 units twice a day, and may even be able to be reduced even more at our next check up. Her sugars are doing amazing and all three dogs love the food! It is even more cost effective than the RX food, with higher quality ingredients, and better nutrition. I highly recommend this food for any dog!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food.  I have a diabetic dog that has been eating this food for 3 or so years.  He cleans his bowl every time.  His blood sugar has been very well controlled while eating this food.  It is a little pricy, but it's worth it for my boy.  I get it at my local pet store.

Questions

Would this help with my dogs fatty tumors?

Asked by: Brooke
Thank you for your question. This is for an overall fat reduction. There is no spot treatment. Also, with it being a tumor, it is hard to say. Consult with your veterinarian on possibilities for tumor reduction.
