My cats won't eat it.

By JenM

from Jacksonville, FL, United States

Comments about Wellness CORE Grain-Free Dry Cat Food:

I have a grain-sensitive cat, which means all 4 of my cats eat grain-free. I typically feed a different brand but have, on occasion, switched brands when my favored brand has been out of stock. Recently I was at a pet store on the other side of town and needed cat food and this large chain apparently no longer carries my brand, so I tried Core, having heard great things about it. My cats typically go through a large bowl of food in 3 days, but it's been over a week and they haven't even eaten half the bowl. Instead, they've been raiding the dog's food. I've even picked them up from eating the dog food, carried them to the cat food, and they left the cat food and returned to the dog food to continue eating. I wish I could return this to the store. It was a total bust in our house.

Easy on the tummy!

By Sarahh

from Ottawa, ON, Canada

Comments about Wellness CORE Grain-Free Dry Cat Food:

Our cat had digestive issues with common brands, and a friend who worked at a cat shelter recommended this product because of the high quality ingredients and lack of grains/corn meal that complicate digestion. Even though it is a bit pricer, we have found that it is totally worth it! Our girl no longer has her tummy troubles and has lots of energy throughout the day. We use this dry food in combination with Wellness Core/ Wellness cans.

We didn't think a cat could get healthier.

By Zoeys parent

from Rensselaer, NY, United States

Comments about Wellness CORE Grain-Free Dry Cat Food:

Our little girl was a street cat with kittens that sacrificed her wellbeing for her babies and came to the shelter with ear issues and some respiratory problems. She was brought back and was on the p.p.p when we got her. She had a lot of bloody stools and her ear was always oozing excess wax, with never an infection or mites. We switched her to a supposedly good food, glue. That help her stool issues but she started to reject their food after a year. Their formulation of biscuits and wet food changed and we were tired of showing that company that the food in the cans was not what it was labeled as. Well I did my research and Wellness was one of the foods our vet recommended. She now eats both the core original biscuits and the core original chicken turkey and chicken liver. All her issues have disappeared and her coat is silk. The biscuits do oxidized and become fishy as she doesn't go through the biscuits as fast as the wet food, so I jar up the biscuits and keep it in the fridge. I would try and purchase a smaller bag but pet smart carries only the large bag of the core original.

Wellness Grain Free original

By newmomott

from Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada

Comments about Wellness CORE Grain-Free Dry Cat Food:

I have 2 cats, a 5 month old and a 17 year old. Our 5 month old was very gassy and stinky so the vet suggested the Gastro food from Hills but I did not like the ingredients in this food and since both cats eat from the same dish I didn't want our senior girl eating it either. So I did some research and Wellness was at the top of each article I found. I went to pet smart and got a small bag to try. It was a hit! both love it and no more stinky gas :) I figure if the vet was going to put our kitten on the gastro by hills then the Wellness core original would be good for him as well.

Saved my cat!

By Jenny

from La Vista, NE

Comments about Wellness CORE Grain-Free Dry Cat Food:

My cat was diagnosed as being diabetic due to a medication she was taking at the time. Our vet instructed us to start giving her insulin injections twice daily and to switch to a low-carb diet. We immediately shopped the market and determined that Wellness Core Dry Food was the best option due to the ingredients and high protein content. With regular administration of her insulin in combination with her new diet, she was no longer diabetic 18 months later! Our vet has recommended this to his other diabetic kitties as well. We noticed changes in our other cats too- their fur was shinier, and their teeth were much cleaner. We are so happy we switched from a popular "scientific" brand you see at the vet's office. Wellness Core changed all of our lives for the better.

Nice food, bad smell

By Alyssa

from Columbia, TN, United States

Comments about Wellness CORE Grain-Free Dry Cat Food:

I bought this as my first wellness food purchase for my cat Pixel. She really liked the flavor (more so then the indoor she's eating now) and I love that it's low in carbs, and seems like a really healthy diet. However, I could not get over the smell of that food, very very fishy. She has been swapped to indoor because obviously you feed a stinky food their poop will smell and man it was awful. If it didn't small so bad I would have stayed on it for sure
