Wellness CORE Grain Free Puppy Formula:

Deboned Chicken, Chicken Meal & Turkey Meal Recipe

Wellness® CORE® is built upon the nutritional philosophy that dogs, based on their primal ancestry, thrive on a natural diet built upon hearty animal proteins bolstered by just the right amount of healthy vegetables, fruits and other plant-based functional ingredients. At the heart of every tasty CORE bite is a careful balance of natural, quality ingredients: real meat with nutrient-rich plant-based superfoods, vitamins and minerals. The result is a wonderfully nutrient-dense meal with a craveworthy taste that your pup can really sink their teeth into, which contains everything they need to thrive from the CORE! All our recipes are crafted in small batches to enable us to carefully monitor quality to ensure your pet receives only the very best food every time.

Our Puppy recipe for all breeds of dogs is grain-free and contains deboned chicken as the first ingredient, supported by two quality meat meals, to provide a diet with a 36% protein content and help your pup grow and develop lean, powerful muscles. It is fortified with antioxidants from plant-based superfoods including spinach, broccoli and kale, to help bolster your pup’s developing immunity, as well as guaranteed taurine levels to help ensure heart health. Guaranteed levels of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids from a combination of salmon oil, chicken fat and flaxseed supports healthy skin and coat; while the inclusion of ample salmon oil ensures the recipe is rich in DHA and EPA for healthy brain and eye development. Our patented Acticoat™ technology ensures that four strains of live probiotics coat every bite of kibble to promote digestive health as your puppy transitions to new foods. It also contains guaranteed optimal levels of calcium and phosphorus to support developing bones and teeth.

my hooman did a lot of research about the best puppy food to feed me so that I can grow up a strong 💪🏻 & healthy 🧬 pup! no meat by-products, artificial flavors or preservatives, and it’s grain-free (did you know? a lot of pups have gluten/grain allergies…where my gf peeps at!?). best of all, it’s super yummy…mom has to keep me from eating it way too fast!

Bang for buck!

When the product arrived I was sceptical, I have very very fussy animals and have been caught out before with expensive exceptional quality products that my pet refused to eat! Instantly my first impression was that I was impressed! I opened the packet and shadow instantly attempted to eat the small amount I gave him to pre try. First full bowl all gone quickly! All I can say is success!!!
