Whole Grains, Whole Health: Wellness Natural Pet Food Adds First Wholesome Grains Recipes to Popular Wellness CORE Dog Line

New protein-packed recipes made with quinoa, barley and oatmeal provide pet parents with more feeding options for Fido

TEWKSBURY, Mass., Aug. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Grains are making a grand entrance into the Wellness® CORE® family of high-protein recipes for pets, as Wellness Natural Pet Food announced today the launch of eight new grained meals for dogs. Made with the same high quality, protein-packed kibble pet parents look for in Wellness CORE, the new dry food options are the first-ever grained recipes for the CORE brand, offering pet parents more choice at mealtime.

Wellness CORE with Wholesome Grains and Wellness CORE RawRev with Wholesome Grains are the first-ever grained recipes for the CORE brand, containing protein-packed kibble expertly combined with nutrient-dense, highly digestible grains like quinoa, barley and oatmeal.

Each recipe contains high-quality proteins to deliver the meats dogs crave, expertly combined with nutrient-dense, highly digestible grains like quinoa, barley and oatmeal that are rich in fiber, protein, and essential vitamins, and guaranteed levels of taurine to support heart health. The recipes are available for dogs across life stages, breeds and taste preferences:

  • Wellness® CORE® with Wholesome Grains: Each meal is packed with premium protein along with nutrient-rich grains and superfoods to ensure your dog has everything they need to thrive. Available in four recipes: Original Deboned Turkey, Chicken Meal & Turkey Meal; Ocean Whitefish, Herring Meal & Menhaden Fish Meal; Small Breed Original Deboned Turkey, Turkey Meal & Chicken Meal; and Puppy Deboned Chicken, Chicken Meal & Turkey Meal.
  • Wellness® CORE® RawRev™ with Wholesome Grains: High-protein kibble crafted with wholesome grains is combined with 100% freeze dried raw meat mixed in to create a savory, nutrient-rich meal. Like all Wellness CORE RawRev recipes, they give pet parents a convenient way to add raw protein to their dog's diet. Available in four recipes: Original Deboned Turkey, Chicken Meal & Turkey Meal; Ocean Whitefish, Herring Meal & Salmon Meal;Small Breed Original Deboned Turkey, Turkey Meal & Chicken Meal; and Puppy Deboned Chicken, Chicken Meal & Turkey Meal.

"Our Wellness CORE recipes are based on the philosophy that dogs, based on their primal ancestry, thrive on a diet comprised primarily of meat," said Chanda Leary-Coutu, director of consumer experience at Wellness. "A diet rich in high quality protein can help support a healthy weight, shiny coat, digestive health and more. Our new grained recipes now offer those same protein-focused benefits for pet parents looking to add nutrient-rich grains into their dog's diet as well."

The new recipes are made with no legumes or potatoes and are free of artificial flavors, colors and preservatives. They will all be on display at SuperZoo August 19-22nd in Las Vegas, Nev. at Booth 3459.
