Product Description

Grain-Free Dog Food

Not all grain-free pet foods are created equal. Higher levels of protein can result in higher levels of calcium and phosphorus. These elevated mineral levels can interfere with the absorption of trace minerals like zinc and iron which over time, can result in poor growth rates, skin lesions and low red blood cell levels.

Wellness CORE Grain-Free formulas have guaranteed, maximum levels of both calcium and phosphorus. AAFCO does not require any mention of calcium or phosphorus on a guaranteed analysis and most pet food brands at best, may only guarantee minimums.

CORE formulas have controlled mineral content levels and use high quality, lower ash meats. High-quality meats can cost almost twice as much as lower quality meats and have 50 - 75% lower ash levels.

Wellness CORE Grain-Free Dog Recipes

Wellness CORE is based on the nutritional philosophy that pets, based on their primal ancestry, thrive on a diet mainly comprised of meat. Each formula is packed with a high concentration of high-quality animal protein without grains or fillers, along with a proprietary blend of botanicals and nutritional supplements.

  • 100% Grain-Free
  • Nutrient-Dense, Balanced Diet
  • No Meat By-Products or Fillers
  • Includes Antioxidants, Omega Fatty Acids & Probiotics
  • Made with Naturally Gluten-Free Ingredients
Wellness Core Black Laborador Retriever


When to feed CORE:

Perfect for everyday feeding, mixing with raw, supplementing raw or replacing raw while traveling.

How to Feed CORE:

Due to high meat content, CORE is highly palatable and your dog may want to eat more of it. Watch initially to see if you need to adjust normal eating patterns. Ensure that your dog also has 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 a while 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% of the new food by day 7.

Customer Reviews

My dog loves this food.
K. Lovett
Would definitely recommend Wellness CORE to anyone, especially if your dog has a sensitive stomach and has skin issues/allergies.

While this food is pricy, it's worth it for my dog.

Size Name: 26-Pound Bag
Few things good about this product:
1. Made by Wellness. No recalls of any kind thus far. I am really paranoid about having a sick pet with a 3-4 figured vet bill, so that is something I look out for a lot.
2. Ingredients is a lot better than most foods.
3. Palatable. My dog kinda hates Wellness but would eat down Wellness Core products literally right away.
4. High Fiber. 7% if I am not wrong. What made me try this food was that my dog had constantly soft stools at one point in time. So I saw the high fiber percentage, and I decided to try this out. My dog had really solid poop after that! It helped a lot for me so hopefully will be the same for you.
5. Relatively reasonably priced. About $1.80/pound.
6. No ethoxyquin preservative used.

Way(s) this product is "sub-par" compared to the "very top" products. (This is really no biggie at all, but I just decided to write this because for some it might be an issue)
1. Dried varieties of certain products as opposed to fresh ones, such as dried ground potato instead of fresh ones.
2. Canola oil used instead of salmon oil which is a cost cutting measure used by the company. Dogs can't digest canola oil so the omega levels provided by it are pretty much just for marketing purposes only.

Overall, I wouldn't really be concerned with the "cons" of the product if you even consider it as a con to start with.
This is a really good product that is priced pretty reasonable for its quality.
I would feel safe about feeding my dog this based upon the manufacturer's reputation of not having any recalls in its history.

Hope this helps!

My poor dog has allergies. Chicken, lamb, beef , and of course grains all have allergens that bother him greatly. I was recommended to try a fish based food that was grain free. This was one of the few brands that was truly ocean meat based. Most all the others that label their food as salmon or another fish have chicken listed as the second ingredient. This food does not have anything other than fish and vegetables. My pup has been happy and healthy since. Bonus: he absolutely LOVES his food!

I got this at a great price and fast free shipping. My miniature schnauzer is liking it ok so far, not as well as she liked the other flavors of Wellness CORE. Would definitely recommend Wellness CORE to anyone, especially if your dog has a sensitive stomach and has skin issues/allergies.

Our 6 year old female Bullmastiff has joint problems when she is too active, she starts limping and her shoulder stiffens up. Our vet recommended that we feed her a fish based food, so we switched from Wellness Core regular formula to Earthborn Holistics Coastal Catch (we didn't switch her to Wellness Ocean at the time due to the fact that we had a six month old Bullmastiff puppy eating it as well, the Wellness Ocean wasn't recommended for large breed puppies and dogs under a year old due to higher amounts of calcium). The Earthborn helped her joints a little but she still limped once in a while, and after six months her coat began to look dandruffy and dull, so we recently bought a 26 pound bag of the Wellness Core Ocean to see if that would help. She and our now one year old Bullmastiff, have almost finished the first bag and the difference is already AMAZING, she no longer limps at all, her coat is shiny and glossy, she lost the few extra pounds that she had gained on the Earthborn, and she and her sister absolutely LOVE this food! Her little sister gets skin problems due to an allergy to grain, so we have to keep their diet grain free. The Wellness Core dry formulas are rated 5 Stars at dogfoodadvisor.com, so I signed up for automatic delivery here at Amazon, at $56.95 per bag, MUCH less expensive than anywhere else online or locally.

I first purchased this dog food four months ago and am just now writing a review. My dog has severe allergies and I wanted to be absolutely sure of my rating when I wrote this review. I have a 1 year old pit bull who scratched her skin constantly, had red skin, yeast infections (brown gunk) in her ears and toes, and crusty ear flaps. I started her on this food hoping that the single protein, fish, grain free food would eliminate her symptoms. IT WORKS! I read another review on here that said it took their dog up to three months to see results and yes, PLEASE give this food some time to work, it took about three months for my dog to show drastic change too. No more ear crud, no most incessant scratching til she has welts, she's a happy, healthy dog thanks to Wellness Core Ocean Formula dog food. Pay a little more for dog food or a ton in vet bills and having an uncomfortable dog? The choice is clear for me, buy the food. If the price is really an issue for you, it's free two day shipping on a 26 lb package with Amazon Prime or have a yard sale to help pay for the food. It's worth it! REMEMBER: If you're going for a single protein, fish, grain free food to eliminate allergies, remember that dog treats also need to be single protein, fish, grain free. My favorite on Amazon are "Cloud Star Dynamo Dog Skin and Coat Functional Treat Pouches, Salmon". You can cut them up to be a bit smaller if you have a small dog or decide to use them for training.
