Feeding Guidelines

Recommended Feeding Portions (based on a standard 8 oz dry measuring cup):
Every dog is a little different so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size, activity level, breed and environment. Divide the total cups per day by the number of times you feed your dog per day. Please use the information below as an initial recommendation only and adjust as needed.

Weight of Dog (lbs) Cups per Day
6 - 20 1/2 - 1 1/2
20 - 35 1 1/2 - 2 1/4
35 - 50 2 1/4 - 3
50 - 65 3 - 3 1/2
65 - 80 3 1/2 - 4
80 - 95 4 - 4 3/4
95 - 115 4 3/4 - 5 1/2

Dogs over 115 lbs: Add 1/4 cup per additional 10 lbs.

Combination Feeding: If feeding with wet food, reduce dry amount by 1/2 cup for every 6 oz of wet food.

      So far we are very happy with this food. Our dog seems to like it and she has had no adverse reactions. I just wish the price was not so high. If we cannot find it on sale we will have to switch her food.

        Comments about Wellness CORE Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

        The dogs often will eat the dry food without mixing in other things. They have to be in the mood for a stand-alone dry food. I also buy the Wellness CORE canned food and usually add a bit of this with some warm water. I have West Highland Terriers with yeast issues, and I would really rather have a Grain Free food that has no potato, peas, carrots etc which this food has. I usually buy the Wild Game formula dry but also like to alternate flavors.

        Comments about Wellness CORE Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

        I'm a groomer and I reccomend this to anyone. It's made in the USA, great for sensitive stomachs, and good for all sizes.
        I adopted a mastiff who was leaner than he should be, couldn't hold down food very well, and was terribly gassy. A month on this stuff and he was doing great! Gained weight, coat looked awesome, and less gas (you can kinda breathe out of your nose now)! My chihuahua loves it as well.
        It's very expensive. I tried switching to the slightly cheaper fish option thru wellness, after watching him go downhill I decided it wasn't worth it. I don't know if it's a coincidence but he always had chronic ear infections that his prior parents treated but I had his ears packed and changed his food and no more..... Knock on wood!!
