My dog is an active Portuguese Water Dog but not as active as most. She likes a mile walk and a 3 to 4 mile hike. She can go a day w/o a walk and not totally freek out. That doesn't happen often but it does happen on those snowy cold days. She has always been a very picky eater. I have tried them all. Raw was the best but I just dont have the time and my life style is active and I cant always keep it cold and safe. So I need to feed her part dry. She was getting so many treats due to her not eating that I was noticing she was putting on weight. So we switched to this food. She loves it. I but a small amout of raw on top when we are home and when we are not she gobbles it up anyway! I am happy, she is happy, all is good.

We tried this as our old dog used to eat this. I am not sure if this is a new formula as Sara (who eats everything), refused to eat it. I even tried hand feeding and Sara spit it out. We returned it to Petco.

Just Switched

By Mick

from Morristown, TN, United States

Comments about Wellness CORE Grain Free Reduced Fat Dry Dog Food:

We have 4 dogs we just switched to this low fat food. Two of them could lose 5-10 lbs. one is a Pit That weighs 80 lbs and needs to lose about 20 Lbs. we are following the feeding guide. So far their stools are fine and there are no adverse signs. They gobble it up like their other food. That was a high quality food, best on the market but just too high in the fat content. We did notice there is a lot more dust coming off this than their other food. Not sure what contributes to that but it is quite noticeable. I will try to post again in 3 months to see their weight loss.

Core Reduced Fat

By anjsmiles

from Georgia

Comments about Wellness CORE Grain Free Reduced Fat Dry Dog Food:

We started with Wellness Small breed and later switched out to the Core Reduced Fat. Our Yorkie Mix has been for a couple years now. It helps with his itchy skin and the reduced fat recipe also helps manage his weight now that he is having joint issues. I wanted to make a comment in reference to the person who stated it is too dusy. I know what she is talking about. The food tends to crumble in the bottom of the bag so that when you get down to the last 1/4 or so of the bag there is a lot of food particles that we found can get stuck in the roof of the dog's mouth like a paste if he tries to eat it. That is a real issue. I now have to sift the dust crumbles out of the remaining food when we get down to that part so that my dog can eat it without having paste stuck inside the roof of his mouth. I attribute this to the kibble being not as hard as other kibbles and more easy to break/chew. Considering this food does not come in a smaller kibble formula for smaller dogs, I don't know what the alternative would be. It took our dog a bit to get used to chewing the larger kibble when we switched off the small dog formula wellness.

    Both dogs just love the food. They are fed morning and evening. One will growl in low tone when it thinks it is time to eat.

    Wellness Grain Free Fat Reduced

    By Bailey

    from Bay area CA

    Comments about Wellness CORE Grain Free Reduced Fat Dry Dog Food:

    My dog absolutely hates dry dog food. However, I was given a free sample bag. I got it to her and she loves it. She eats it completely dry or with a little flavor on top. But I usually let her it dry as I am trying to help her reduce weight.

    Comments about Wellness CORE Grain Free Reduced Fat Dry Dog Food:

    my lab\boxer mix is prone to pancreatitis, and has food allergies. this is the only food that works for him. as a veterinary technician for over five years, i see the result of pets on poor diets daily. i am thankful i found this high quality food to keep my boy happy and healthy. every pet is different, but balanced nutrition is one of the most important things you can o to ensure a long healthy life for your pet.
