Instructions

Instructions for Use:

FEEDING INFORMATION
When to Feed CORE™: Perfect for everyday feeding, mixing with raw, supplementing raw or replacing raw while traveling.
Who Should Eat CORE™: The nutrient levels of this food are appropriate for adult dogs over 1 year.  We do not recommend feeding this formula to puppies as they have special nutritional requirements during their growth stage.  Please try our Wellness® Puppy Food to meet these unique needs.
How to Feed CORE™: 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.  Please 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.
RECOMMENDED FEEDING PORTIONS (based on a standard 8 oz. dry measuring cup): Optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size and activity level.  Please use the information below as an initial recommendation only.
