Wellness® CORE® Grain Free Puppy Food
Great for sensitive tummies or allergies!
When we got our 10 week old shih-tzu puppy, he came with a bag of Royal Canin given to us by his breeder. Our little guy hated it from the first bite and had terrible diarrhea that wouldn't go away. Several hundreds of dollars in bills and many tests later, the vet put him on a canned prescription diet, also Royal Canin. But, this time his diarrhea eased up right away. That's when I began to suspect food allergies because the Rx food was made with brown rice and no other grains at all. So I tried out several brands of expensive grain-free foods. None of them seemed to work until I decided to try Wellness Core. Turns out our munchkin is allergic to wheat, wheat gluten, corn and corn gluten. Since we made the switch to Wellness Core, he has been doing wonderfully. We mix the canned food and solid food with no issues at all. He also loves the flavor, which is an added bonus! He thinks the solid food is a treat. He is 6 months old now and has been on Wellness for a little over 2 months. He is healthy and energetic and his coat is shiny and so soft that everyone remarks on it! No more diarrhea! The only "downside"? We have to put up with fish breath, LOL! The food is both grain and gluten-free. Meat and/or fish, vegetables and fruits are at the top of the ingredients list. The 4 probiotic cultures seem to keep his digestive system balanced and it is one of only two brands to include them. I couldn't find a gluten and grain-free version of the other brand in-store. I would highly recommend Wellness Core to anyone whose dog has digestive problems.

My 7 month old lab puppy is an extremely finicky eater. I have fed her Wellness Core Puppy dry food since she was 8 weeks old, but always had to mix in boiled chicken in order for her to finish her food. I am going on vacation soon and while she will be with a close friend most of the time, for one day she will be at her daycare and boarded overnight. I cannot expect them to boil fresh chicken for her and mix it with her food so I decided to try this because this is something they can do. I mixed half a can with her dry food and she ate it all up! What a lifesaver. I will slowly transition to this as it is much easier. Thank you Petsmart and Wellness!

Excellent high protien food
We have a new rescued min pin. She was severely underweight and her coat was shedding and had a dull, gray color. Normally a healthy min pin should not be overweight but should not have their spine, ribs and hip bones protruding. Their coat should be black (in the case of black/rust variety) and shiny and have normal shedding.
Our little girl has been eating Wellness Core puppy formula both dry and canned for 2 weeks and the difference is amazing. She has gained 8 ounces in two weeks and already her coat is losing the gray look and starting to become blacker.
We are impressed with the formula of this food and I highly recommend it for nursing mothers and their pups.
I am very pleased and the assistance I recieved in choosing this food was valuable and appreciated.
I love Pet Smart and will continue to be a customer.
My rescue thanks you too!
