From Our Customers
- JoshMy puppy was having stomach issues on another brand of food. When I looked at the ingredients of the other brand, I could see why-3 of the top 4 ingredients were grain fillers! Then I came across CORE Puppy. A high-protein, grain-free food is exactly what a growing puppy needs to stay fit and healthy. He loves it! I’d recommend CORE to ensure the best for your pup.

Combination Feeding: If feeding with Wellness wet food, reduce dry amount fed by ⅓ cup (42 g) for every 6 oz (170 g) of wet food.

Every puppy 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.
