Wellness Core does away with those pesky grains, like wheat and barley. Grains are generally considered fillers—ingredients that provide little, if any, nutritional value for your pup. So the loss of grains isn't a big deal, and some dogs have a grain allergy, so for them grain-free food is a must. You'll find more protein in Wellness Core than in Super5Mix, due to the added meat ingredients. All Wellness Core dry recipes include three meat sources in the first three ingredients. The other ingredients, aside from the grains, remain largely the same. You don't have as many life stage and recipe choices here as you do with Super5Mix, although recipes aimed at puppies, small breeds and weight management, as well as wet food, do exist.
Wellness CORE Grain Free Large Breed Adult Dog Food
Alright. As you can see, Wellness Core has the highest rating awarded by Dog Food Advisor due to it’s abundance of meat. It’s grain-free, which is a plus to many (myself included) and has good ingredients without anything controversial, save for the tomato pomace, and even that doesn’t really bother me. I personally think Wellness in general and Core in particular is a fine food, and readily available.

My 2 Long Coat Chi’s eat 1/2 cup of Wellness Core per day. They do awesome on it and their coats look great. They are tiny (3 lbs) so I was worried to put them on a high protein diet. The truth is that this has been the best food that they have ever eaten. Their coats are so shiny and long and they aren’t fat at all. They are lean and as muscular as can be for small dogs. Today I switched them to the brand new Wellness Core Small breed and they are loving it. I would assume they will continue eating the same amount as its just smaller bites and easier to chew. They do have to go outside an extra time but it’s because the food is so good and easy to digest, which is a good thing! I’m excited to see how well they do on the Core Small Breed.
