Wellness® CORE™ Original Formula Adult Dog Food is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for maintenance.

CONTAINS NO: Meat By-Products, Wheat, Soy, Dairy, Corn or Corn Gluten, Artificial Preservatives, Colors or Flavors.

Calorie Content: This food contains 3,600 kcal per kilogram or 430 kcal per cup ME (metabolizable energy) on an as fed basis (calculated).


Instructions for Use:

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.
5-20                            ¼-1 ¼
20-35                          1 ¼- 1 ¾
35-50                          1 ¾- 2 ¼
50-65                          2 ¼- 2 ¾
65-80                          2 ¾- 3 ¼
80-95                          3 ¼- 3 ¾
95-115                        3 ¾- 4 ¼

Combination Feeding: If feeding with wet food, reduce dry amount fed by ½ cup, for every 6.0 oz. wet food.
Dogs over 115 lbs.: Add ¼ cup per additional 10 lbs.
