      This food is the main caloric source for my two cats and they love it and are very healthy. The ingredients are high protein and low carbohydrate, which seem to be a healthy feline choice.

        Comments about Wellness CORE Grain-Free Dry Cat Food:

        I feed this to my 1 year old male cat in the evenings (he gets wet food during the day) and he seems to like it all right. The only issue I had with the food was he had a hard time adjusting to it at first and I had to transition him very slowly. I started with about 2 Tbs - 1/4 cup of the Wellness mixed with his old food, but he vomited it up so I backed down to about 1 tablespoon and then slowly every few days increased it and now, about 2 weeks later, he is tolerating up to a half a cup just fine. Otherwise I have had no issues with this food.

          Comments about Wellness CORE Grain-Free Dry Cat Food:

          My 4 year old male has had digestive issues since he was 3 months old. I had been using Blue Buffalo Grain Free, but Toby was still having occassional issues with loose stools, etc. He has also always had bouts of a nasal issue that I was told to not worry about unless it ulcerated (really?). I decided to bite the bullet and try Wellness Core. I've had Toby and Mica on the Indoor formula for 3 weeks now, and it has made a night and day difference for both of them. Toby has had NO digestive trouble and his coat is much improved (was not expecting that one), and his nasal issues have seemingly gone away (*knock on wood*). Mica, my female, does not like the new food as much, but as she is a chunky monkey with whom I've been struggling, I look at that as a good thing. Both are now in GREAT body condition and have gone from kinda high energy to completely crazy, tormenting the dog. I would highly reccommend the food to others.

              I have a mutiple cat home and they have never COMPLETELY refused to eat the dry food I have put out. They are not finicky, but they will not go near this food. My dogs dislike it as well, even when I mixed it with roasted chicken! A total waste of alot of money.
