Product description

Wellness Core Puppy Formula for dogs is a unique, grain-free recipe that supports and nurtures your dog's inner wellbeing. With optimal calories for growth and in smaller kibble size to suit your puppy. A protein powerhouse recipe with Deboned Turkey, Turkey Meal, Chicken Meal as the first 3 ingredients and no meat by products or fillers makes this diet not only nutrient dense to help support the higher energy needs of small breed dogs but also one that feeds your dog how nature intended.

Made with high quality natural ingredients, fresh fruit and vegetables and a proprietary blend of botanicals and nutritional supplements including omega fatty acids, glucosamine and probiotics, CORE is a complete and balanced diet that contains all the bells and whistles you would expect from a Superior Premium Natural Diet with guaranteed calcium and phosphorus levels to help support healthy development of bones and teeth. Rich in antioxidants to support strong immune system and DHA from salmon oil to help support cognitive development, Wellness Core helps give your puppy the best start in life. In addition to the ingredients that Wellness Core includes, what makes Wellness Core different to other brands is what they leave out.

Every recipe in Wellness Core contains no grain, corn, soy, wheat-gluten or artificial preservatives, colours or flavours making it a naturally hypoallergenic recipe and suitable for sensitive pets. Whilst every diet is grain free, Wellness Core does grain free the right way and also reduces the total amount of carbohdrates so that every dog can get more of the good stuff making it a better grain free choice for everyday feeding and one where as a result you will see the visible difference in your pet's skin and coat, energy levels and stools.

  • SUSAN says...
    My cavoodle loves it and I always get an empty bowl after each feed.
  • Blake says...
    Great product really helped my puppies stomachs and left their coats really nice! Only wish there was a bigger bag to order as we go through it pretty quickly and it adds up price wise but is worth it for two happy pups.
  • Jess says...
    My german shepherd has been fed a raw food diet since she was a pup (she's now 7 months). I use wellness core to make sure she has the added vitamins she needs. I buy a 7kg bag and it lasts for months in an airtight bucket. Petbarn is one of the few places that have the wellness brand. Wellness Core is the grainfree variety and I love it for both my cat and dog. Highly recommend!
  • Hugo says...
    My Staffy has an intolerance to Red meat and since switching to this brand and product, he has now healthier and appears to be a whole lot happier too!
  • James says...
    I've been feeding my pup core, great dry food, he loves it at feeding time, he gets overly excited jumps and bounds have to tell him sit stay, he can hardly contain himself, problem is West Ryde is always out of stock, a little annoying when that's the closest to me, but I do drive to Gladesville as the seem to always have it in stock, don't mind driving there as we must remember nothing but a top quality food for the newest family member. Can anyone recommend the wet food as my pup is only on dry food, the vet said just keep him on dry, thanks.
  • Genevieve says...
    I have a husky, he has a sensitive stomach and he loves this food. There is a noticeable difference in his coat and general wellbeing, extremely happy with this product. It's expensive food but I don't mind as long as my fur baby is happy.
  • Sophie says...
    After spending a lot on so many on other expensive foods and having the problem of not eating and the nightmare of " diarrhea", this food made our life so much easier. He loves this grain free wellness core which is quite surprising for us. going to switch soon to an adult one :)
  • Jay says...
    Bought this for my young pomeranian who is only 10 weeks old! She loves it as well as her wet food and this is certainly value for the quality ingredients it offers.
  • Belle says...
    My 16 week old Siberian Husky has always been fussy when it comes to eating. Ever since changing to this food it's no longer a 30 minute adventure of trying to get him to eat. He loves the smaller kibble (other brands he wasn't chewing properly so he would often vomit the biscuits back up whole) and he's now one happy little husky! Highly recommend, bit expensive but worth every dollar :)
  • Debra says...
    After researching many hours on the best dog food to give your pet Core Wellness scored the highest. I love knowing that I'm giving my rough collie pup a well balanced vitamin enriched dog food. Along with a home made meal I know she is getting the very best. Her coat is shiny and soft and her eyes are bright and clear. She loves the tatse and doesn't leave a crumb.Thankyou Wellness for a great product
