This post may be a bit late, but I am feeding my dogs Wellness Core for about four months now. I was on Innova but when I decided to switch to grain-free I went with Wellness because 1. The protien is a little lower and 2. The bag actually says free of ethoxyquin/artificial preservatives which it does not say on the Innova bag. I had actually tried out Blue Buff Wilderness first but even though I transitioned slowely it made Kiora very gassy with loose stool and vomiting, though it did not do this to my other two. I feed Blue Buffalo to my cats and have had good results from them on it. Anyways….
I like the Core food..my puppies like the taste, and they have good energy, and small good stool, firm but not dry. Their coats are decent, Ananda's is very nice, Keokes is nice but a bit coarse on the back (Of course we have had really dry weather so that migh be part of it), and Kiora's is nice and soft but she still has a bit of dandruff from time to time(She has always had some dandruff). They get about 3/4 dry food and one 1/4 canned of : Wellness 95% Salmon, Wellness 95% Beef, W Venison, W White fish & Sweet Potatoe, W Lamb, W Duck, Blue Buff Salmon, By Nature Organic Chicken w/ carrots and peas, and By Nature Organic Turkey w/ carrots and peas. Overall I am very pleased with this food but I would like to get some of their new ocean core to combine, I think more fish will improve the dandruff. (I hope)
