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.

    Comments about Wellness CORE Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

    Buster is a small (12#) poodle mix, at least 16 y.o. He has always had a finicky GI system (though not his palette, alas), food allergies, and cancer to boot. He ate EVO for several years and did very well till about a year ago. After maligning that product falsely, I finally figured out he his G.I trouble is due to pancreatitis. He has had only 1 flare up since switching to Wellness Core RF about 4 months ago. My only 2 desires is to see a price reduction, and to have the fish flavor available in more locations. Most retailers deny it even exists when I ask about it, LOL.

      Comments about Wellness CORE Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

      Miracle is just over 3 years old now. She came to us from a private breeder. She's a mixed species, what some people may call a "designer" dog. She has become a Registered Service Dog as a Companion and Therapy animal for most of the family, our reason for choosing her after months of careful searching. She obviously means the world to all of us. Only 11 to 12 pounds, she has parts of poodle and cockapoo in her background. Her best attributes are her inteligence, compasion, high energy and silky smooth coat. No shedding. It has always been our goal to provide her with the best of care and home environment. Not not the least important is her diet. After trying other high quality grain free products, Core dry food has become a hit with her, and has allowed her to enjoy regular feeding, without skipping meals or over-feeding. She enjoys perfect health and rave check-ups as a result. I'm a believer in grain-free food, and in the Core brand, as is Miracle.

          Comments about Wellness CORE Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

          Wow this is such a great product. We used to feed Chocolate,our 10-12 year old mixed breed we adopted from the shelter, EVO small bites. While his coat was in good condition and he was otherwise healthy, considering his relatively inactive lifetstyle(I sometimes can't take him for daily walks due to time constraints)he gained weight very easily. So I put him on a holistic but grain inclusive food and he was doing OK. THEN I found Wellness CORE and wow, I'm a little under halfway through the 4 lb bag and I am already seeing improvements, not only have I noticed a shiny coat,and more energy(even though he currently has only three useable legs due to a hip dislocation that is still healing), but he didn't experience any weight gain. In fact he lost a bit of weight. Great product! I would reccomend it!

          My dog is one of the pickiest eaters, she has never eaten a canned food because she never liked the smell of em. Science Diet, Purina one are the only dry foods she will eat but this product she gobbles up like no tomorrow. Am glad there are no grain fillers as my dog is now 17 years old and want to keep her around for many more.

            This food is amazing. I have been trying to find a natural grain-free food for my 11 month old pug and this is the winner!
            She loves the taste (whereas she was not eating all of her food before) and it helps maintain her weight. It is also easily digested. She had no issues with switching from a grain to grain-free diet on this food. Her stool remained completely normal.
            I would recommend this food to anyone who wants to switch to a grain-free diet for their dog.

              My poodle / cocker spaniel / ???? mix had terrible trouble with matting and I resolved that I must just keep her coat very short. Little did I know it was due to her licking because she was suffering from allergies... Switched to this 2 months ago and her coat looks wonderful the licking and matting has stopped! She didn't need reduced fat b/c she is very lean but it's had no effect on her weight as she is free feed...

                  protein is high but not excessive, fat is under 20% as well as offering a lower fat brand which is great for breeds prone to bloat.
