Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wellness Core for Large Breed Our yellow lab Kane was a picky eater until we switched him to Wellness Core Large Breed. He's loving the recipe and we're loving how he acts and looks. Thanks Wellness family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large Breed, best kibble on the market Only kibble I trust for my dog! He has been on Wellness Core since he was 8 weeks old. He started on Wellness Core Puppy and then we switched him to the large breed formula about age 16 months. Perfect coat, perfect weight.... Granted he'd eat as much as we'd have him!

Recommended Feeding Portions

(Based on a standard 8 oz dry measuring cup)

Every dog is a little different so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size, activity level, breed and environment. Divide the total cups per day by the number of times you feed your dog per day. Please use the information below as an initial recommendation only and adjust as needed.

Weight(lbs) Cups per day
50 - 60 3 - 3 2/3  
61 - 70 3 2/3 - 4

How to Transition

This food is formulated for adult, non-reproducing dogs over one year old as puppies and pregnant or nursing mothers have special nutritional requirements. It is important to slowly transition your dog from his/her current diet as it takes a few days for the body to adapt to new nutrient levels. To transition, gradually mix in the new food over a 5-7 day period, increasing the amount of Wellness® each day, so that you are feeding 100% Wellness® CORE® by day 7.

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. Give your dog access to clean, cool fresh water at all times and feed Wellness® CORE® wet food in combination whenever possible, to increase the level of water in your dog's diet. Nutrition is the foundation of wellbeing, but be sure to give your dog plenty of love, exercise and see your veterinarian regularly!
