    Health & nutrition

    • Formulated to ensure dogs and cats thrive from the CORE, Wellness CORE recipes contain key nutrition that is scientifically proven to promote superior well-being with a demonstration of these signs of health in 4 main areas:
      Nourished Skin & Coat: Wellness CORE goes above and beyond the FEDIAF requirements (European Food Industry Federation) for omega fatty acids to ensure an improved skin and coat health of dogs and cats and can be attributed to the presence of our guaranteed levels of fatty acids in the pet’s diets
      Optimal Nutrient Digestibility: All nutrients chosen for a Wellness CORE recipe are selected to optimize digestion and nutrient absorption with the pet’s stools also being evaluated to determine the long-term health and nutrient absorption. Wellness CORE recipes are formulated to optimize digestive health with added dietary fibres, prebiotics and probiotics to nourish the cells lining the pet’s digestive tract.
      Optimal Energy: The careful selection of increased meat proteins, wholesome fats and reduced carbohydrates ensure that every Wellness CORE recipe delivers the energy a dog and cat need for a healthy and active life.
      Strong Immunity: Since much of a pet’s immunity system lies within their gut, Wellness CORE recipes include a tailored blend of dietary fibres, prebiotics and probiotics to create a healthy intestinal tract that ensures not only improved nutrient digestibility and absorption but also one that creates an effective barrier for pathogens in the digestive tract. Alongside a nutrient-rich diet, these inclusions help support overall immune health.

      In accordance with FEDIAF guidelines, all Wellness CORE recipes are complete and balanced pet foods that provide all the nutrient requirements established for the life stage for which the pet food was intended. In addition to FEDIAF guidelines for establishing nutritional adequacy, Wellness CORE undertakes additional non-required nutrient analysis to further provide assurance of a recipe’s nutritional adequacy and performance. These non-invasive studies evaluate and confirm nutrient consumption, stool quality and diet palatability.

    • Wellness CORE Cat recipes contain increased amounts of dietary fibre and added cellulose to help the ingested hair pass through the digestive tract. As a poorly fermentable fibre, cellulose resists microbial effects to help maximize the sweeping of any ingested hair out into the stools to minimise the occurrence of hairballs. With added omega fatty acids plus rich meat protein sources, every Wellness CORE Cat recipe also promotes a lustrous skin and coat to help minimize hair fall and ingestion. The dual approach helps minimize the total amount of hair ingested as well as reduce the likelihood of hairballs being vomited up by gently moving them through the digestive system.
