NATURAL FOOD FOR ADULT DOGS with added vitamins & minerals.
You are what you eat.  We humans have to make those decisions for our animal friend.  In fact, it’s an even bigger deal for them because they eat the same thing almost every day.  That’s why at Wellness®, we have made it our mission for over a decade to provide pet parents with a variety of thoughtful, natural nutritional choices to create a foundation of wellbeing from the inside…out.
We have formulated our entire line of canine nutrition the Wellness Way™ using truly exceptional real food ingredients, each with a purpose, creating special recipes that meet the unique health needs of your dog.
Over the years, we have helped thousands of pets, and the people who love them, discover the difference that choosing Wellness® can make.
 [Kôr] NOUN 1. Most vital or most important part. 2. The essence.
What is Protein-focused Nutrition?   Wellness® CORE® is based on the raw feeding philosophy of providing nutrient-rich, high-quality meat to a dog’s diet.  Each grain-free kibble is packed with protein from deboned turkey and chicken, turkey meal, chicken meal and chicken liver along with a proprietary blend of vegetables, oils, fruits and botanicals that nurture your dog to the core.
Why is CORE® different?  In a word…balance.  When you add more meat to your dog’s daily feeding program, you also add more protein, fat, calcium, phosphorus and calories.  And since daily health requires a delicate nutritional equation, these levels must be managed to create balance, not excess.
Considering your animal’s whole health, we have created CORE® with the animal protein content you’re looking for but without the excess nutrient levels your dog may not need.  CORE® provides incredibly flavorful, protein-focused nutrition the Wellness Way.

A grain-free choice for dogs over 1 year who need to maintain optimal daily health…
OPTIMUM FAT & CALORIE LEVELS: Formulated for healthy dogs with optimal fat and calorie levels, just right for everyday feeding.
GRAIN FREE & HIGH PROTEIN: Formulated with 34% protein from a variety of the highest quality sources. Potatoes provide wholesome carbs and keep the kibble firm.
GREENS & BOTANICALS: Nutrient-rich ingredients such as kale, broccoli, spinach & parsley, are chosen for their naturally unique dietary contributions.
FISH & FLAX OMEGA BLEND: Omega 3 fatty acids from salmon oil and flaxseed help maintain skin and coat health.
LIVING FOOD WITH ACTICOAT: After cooking, each kibble is coated with a source of live naturally-occurring micro-organisms normally found in a healthy digestive tract.
HIP & JOINT SUPPORT: Glucosamine Hydrochloride and Chondroitin Sulfate help maintain bone & joint health.  We also ensure the right amounts of Calcium and Phosphorus by guaranteeing maximum levels on every bag.
We are proud to add this choice to the Wellness® line of natural food for pets. This diet supports our continued belief that thoughtfully balanced, natural nutrition is the foundation of wellbeing, happiness and longevity that we want for all of our family members, including our animals.
Live Well – Eat Well – Be Well®
