Dry Formula Wild Game is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Grain Free dog food on the market! I have been using Core dog and Cat food for 5 years now, this food has never had a recall on it and that is a good thing these days!! We love that we are feeding our animals the best food possible for them and they are very healthy because of it! Shiny coats, sparking eyes, lots of energy and all at healthy weights. Great flavor choice but my dogs like the Wild Game Flavor where as my cat loves the Turkey Duck Core Cat food. All have been eating Core since we got them and I can't see any reason why I would use anything else! Thanks Wellness for creating the best food for my animals!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My picky eater now LOVES to eat! My rescue pup Luca has been struggling with digestion issues since he was very young due to a host of medications that he is required to take after it was discovered that he had brain development issues leading to infection, and epilepsy. Finding a quality food product for him has not been easy and he is very hesitant to eat anything. I noticed immediately that he was excited to eat and actually picked his new food out from the old. I am thrilled that he is on the path to a normal digestive life, and could not be more grateful to have found this food. Luca and I thank you very much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wild Game Dry Formuka We have four dogs, all rescues. They LOVE the Wild Game formula and because it's grain free even our dog that has a pancreatic issue can eat it. I like the diversity of proteins and have no problem feeding original formula at one meal and wild game at the next. I love that I can give them nutrition from various protein sources and am thrilled about all the veggies and antioxidants it contains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed I have to say I am really impressed by this dog food. First off I have three dogs and one of them a 15 year old poodle that has struggled with a weak stomach his whole life. Literally anything can give him diarrhea and switching food has always been a long process with lots of diarrhea even when done very slowly. This food is the only food I have ever switched him to that caused 0 stomach upset. That is saying A LOT! My other two dogs have also done very well on this food. I am half tempted to switch them because one of my dogs is a hunting dog and literally runs 10+ miles plus per day everyday plus swimming 3 times a week and there are higher calorie foods out there to help her keep weight on but I love this stuff so much I am just going to increase the quantity maybe add some fat in her diet and see how it goes. Good stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Core Dry Formula Wild Game My 6 year old Wheaten Terrier is a VERY picky eater. We took him off of grains when he was between 1-2 years old due to ongoing issues with allergies. Wellness has been the only brand he would eat. He does well with the wild game formula.

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!
