The essence of the raw feeding philosophy is nutrient-rich, high-quality meat -- and lots of it! That's the same philosophy behind Wellness CORE. But that's not all. This unique, grain-free formula also supports and nurtures your cat's inside...their essence...their core. This recipe is made with 5 meat protein sources providing a high protein diet for your carnivore, tomato pomace and cranberries provide valuable phytonutrients and potatoes provide fiber without use of grains.

Grain-Free Cat Food

Not all grain-free pet foods are created equal. Higher levels of protein can result in higher levels of calcium and phosphorus. These elevated mineral levels can interfere with the absorption of trace minerals like zinc and iron which over time, can result in poor growth rates, skin lesions and low red blood cell levels.

Wellness CORE Grain-Free formulas have guaranteed maximum levels of both calcium and phosphorus. AAFCO does not require any mention of calcium or phosphorus on a guaranteed analysis and most pet food brands at best, may only guarantee minimums.

CORE formulas have controlled mineral content levels and use high quality, lower ash meats. High-quality meats can cost almost twice as much as lower quality meats and have 50 - 75% lower ash levels.

How to Feed CORE:

Due to high meat content, CORE is highly palatable and your cat may want to eat more of it. Watch initially to see if you need to adjust normal eating patterns. Ensure that your cat also has access to clean, cool, fresh water at all times.

It is important to slowly transition your cat from his/her current diet as it takes a while for the body to adapt to the new nutrient levels. To transition, gradually mix in the new food over a 5-7 day period, increasing the amount of Wellness CORE each day so that you are feeding 100% of the new food by day 7.
