Wellness Core Small Breed Original Dry Dog Food
Wellness Core Grain-Free Small Breed Formula is a grain-free, protein-focused dry food for small breed dogs featuring deboned turkey, turkey meal, and chicken meal. Salmon oil is added to promote healthy skin and coat, while glucosamine and chondroitin help maintain bone and joint health. High quality proteins support the higher energy needs of small dogs, while smaller kibble size aids in digestion.

Combination Feeding: If feeding with Wellness wet food, reduce dry amount fed by ⅛ cup (14 g) for every 2 tbsp. of wet food.
Every dog is a little different, so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size, activity level, breed and environment. Please use feeding guidelines as an initial recommendation and adjust as needed.
It takes time to transition your pet to a new food without having digestive upset. Over the course of one to two weeks, you should gradually switch from the old food to the new. Start with a 75% old to 25% new mix, then 50:50, and finally 25:75, until you have switched to Wellness food entirely.
