Dry Formula Ocean is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grain Free- I have 5 dogs (2 Labs- 2yrs old, Jack Russel- 15 yrs old, West Highland Terrier- 7yrs old and Dachshund- 6 yrs old). I started on this feed trying to find something that the Westie was not allergic to. Most foods she would scratch until she had no hair and bloody spots all over. Once we started on this food two years ago, she has not had one episode. I got tired of trying to buy two different foods, so everyone is now on this Wellness Core Ocean. It's pricey but worth it. All of our dogs are doing great, stay at a very healthy weight, people brag about their coats being so shiney and soft. Love this dog food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best of the best Zoey not only is incredibly picky, she also suffered from allergies, ear infections and yeast issues. Since starting this food (6 years ago) all of the issues have ceased. Honestly! The constant (and I do mean constant) chewing on her feet, hot spots and ear infections have ceased. Before starting Wellness Ocean we had tried other fish formulas which did not yield the same result. Whatever you're doing Wellness, it's working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food overall My dogs have very sensitive stomachs and they were able to tolerate it and enjoy the wait for me to put their food down to chow down

Rated 5 out of 5 by from review Core - Ocean formula I started feeding my dog this grain free formula because she was having bad skin issues, this seemed to assist in cleaning them up. I got a second dog who had mange and had no fur at all before she was adopted and figured this would be good fr her as well. So far no issues with her. The girls love the taste and I am happy it doesn't have anything but good fro them ingredients.

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
6 - 10 ¼ - 1¼
20 - 35 1¼ - 1¾
35 - 50 1¾ - 2¼
50 - 65 2¼ - 2¾
65 - 80 2¾ - 3¼
80 - 95 3¼ - 3¾
95 - 115 3¾ - 4¼
   

Dogs over 115 lbs: Add 1/4 cup per additional 10 lbs.

Combination Feeding: If feeding with wet food, reduce dry amount fed by ½ cup, for every 6 oz of wet food.

Calorie Content: This food contains 3,630 kcal per kilogram or 417 kcal per cup ME (metabolizable energy) on an as fed basis (calculated).

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!
