Product Information

Typically, today’s domestic canine population is not as active as its predecessors. As pet owners, we search out food that will balance the equation of time. Wellness CORE Grain Free Reduced Fat Dry Dog Food controls excessive fat levels that may lead to weight gain when extra calories are not utilized, and carefully regulates mineral levels to support the overall metabolic function of today’s household dog. This nutrient-rich natural food is a grain-free choice for the everyday feeding of dogs over one year that are less active or need to lose weight. Wellness CORE is based on the raw feeding philosophy of providing nutrient-rich high-quality meat to a dog’s diet. Each kibble is packed with protein from deboned turkey, turkey meal, chicken and whitefish meals, and chicken liver along with a proprietary blend of vegetables, oils, fruits, and botanicals that nurture your dog to the core. Wellness CORE Grain Free Reduced Fat Dry Dog Food’s goal is nothing in excess, and everything in balance. There are no meat by-products, no wheat or wheat gluten, no soy, no dairy, no corn or corn gluten, no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

My dog is an active Portuguese Water Dog but not as active as most. She likes a mile walk and a 3 to 4 mile hike. She can go a day w/o a walk and not totally freek out. That doesn't happen often but it does happen on those snowy cold days. She has always been a very picky eater. I have tried them all. Raw was the best but I just dont have the time and my life style is active and I cant always keep it cold and safe. So I need to feed her part dry. She was getting so many treats due to her not eating that I was noticing she was putting on weight. So we switched to this food. She loves it. I but a small amout of raw on top when we are home and when we are not she gobbles it up anyway! I am happy, she is happy, all is good.

I tried Wellness CORE after the vet told me my dogs were getting a little pudgy. Well, I listened to people online telling me to feed a grain-free, low-carb, high-protein food. This food was supposed to the best of the best. Well....it isn't even close. I gradually switched my dogs to this food from their old food. The first night I gave 3/4 old food, 1/4 Wellness CORE Reduced Fat. After a week they were eating only Wellness CORE RF. From the first bite of this food my dogs had terrible, terrible gas. It lasted then entire time they ate this food. Their bellies were bloated with gas and and it constantly was coming out both ends! Their stools doubled in size. 0 out of my 7 dogs could handle this food. It did not digest. For a food this expensive, I was very, very unhappy. I've gone back to Science Diet, which does not cause gas, bloating, or large, frequent stools. I cannot recommend Wellness to anybody. I will never again try Wellness, or any other "grain-free" food again.

    Comments about Wellness CORE Grain Free Reduced Fat Dry Dog Food:

    I have an English Bulldog that is about a year and a half old. My vet said he was fluffy and needed to shed a few pounds. I switched his food to a Wellness Core Grain Free Reduced Fat dry food and am soooo glad I did. He loves it, looks slimmer, sheds less and thank God it has helped with his gas, lol. Petfooddirect has it at an AMAZING price and delivered it so fast. Will definitely recommend to others and I will order again.

      Comments about Wellness CORE Grain Free Reduced Fat Dry Dog Food:

      LOVE this pet food brand, been a fan since its introduction and so happy with what they offer these days!

      Wellness' history goes back about 12-15 years ago as being a super premium food with AMAZING ingredients! At the time and still, with innovative and healthy ingredients like deboned HUMAN GRADE chicken... unheard of in the pet food industry! To sweet potatoes, blueberries, carrots and etc.. all utilizing the actual natural product's nutritional elements directly and not just in supplemental form! It really comes down to this… if I had to… if was held up for long periods of time to access to no human foods but with just Wellness foods, like a storm or such…Wellness is all I would allow myself to keep alive! Human grade products! KEY with me! 

      The CORE diets are Grain Free, especially formulated for those pets that may have wheat, corn, dairy or soy allergies or prefer a vegetable, fruit and protein rich diet.

      It's a little pricier than other brands, but you get what you pay for…right?!

        My lab has a very sensitive stomach and she is on the heavy side. This product reduces her weight and she loves eating it. Shipping is prompt and the best prices in town.

          We are the 3rd owner of our beloved beagle, Sally. She gains weight very quickly and has a very sensitive tummy. She went from having a hard time going twice daily to easily going up to 5x daily. She loves her dog food! We have tried to find her a brand that was low in fat but allergen free. Yours is the only one we have tried that has worked!

          This has been my second trip around with food allergies causing digestive issues and possibly mast cell cancers. We just switched off prescription food and my malinois loves it. Note. We tried the Natural Balance Sweet Potato and Venison, but my dog hated it. Given that he's fourteen and has never turned down anything in his life, I won't force a food on him.

          At Wellness®, we do whatever it takes to create the healthiest foods for the pets that depend on us. Food feeds their souls, sustains their lives and protects their bodies. That’s why our diverse team of animal lovers, nutritionists and vets has only one mission: To help you provide your pet a healthy, happy, long life through the power of natural nutrition.

          For each of our recipes we never compromise—selecting nature’s finest ingredients and combining them in exact proportions to help support your pet’s health and wellbeing. Because we’re passionately picky from the first step to the last, we guarantee our products will deliver the Wellness Promise.

          As a pioneer in holistic nutrition, we seek new ways to help pets thrive, educate people about the importance of a healthy lifestyle, and support animal wellness programs.

          Like you, we know that our pets provide us unconditional love, and providing uncompromising nutrition is one way we can do the same for them.

          We believe in authentic real-food values. We believe in food you can trust. We believe in The Wellness Difference.

          The Wellness Difference is about being more than natural. And it’s not about what is left out—no fillers, or artificial ingredients—these are a given for us. True Wellness is about what we put in—a small number of simple, pure, authentic ingredients. We believe this is the way to make superior food for our animals.

          The Wellness Difference can only come from an ideal balance of protein, fats, and carbohydrates—no ‘empty calories.’ That’s why our nutritionists never stop studying our animals’ needs. And, when it comes to protein, we know that pet foods sometimes use inferior ingredients. We do not. True Wellness comes from using only pure protein from high-quality sources.

          The Wellness Difference means every ingredient has a purpose in every food we make. We study until we’re confident of its health benefit… and then, we make sure to put in the right amount so you’ll see a difference in your animal— We never add ingredients just to have the newest ‘buzzword’ on the label.

          This is how we do things at Wellness Natural Food for Pets.

          We do more than make pet food. We create Wellness.™
