Wellness Core Ocean Dog Food Review

Wellness Core Ocean formula provides your dogs with the benefits of a raw diet in a dry version. Wellness Core Ocean is great for the people who what the benefits of a raw diet but are unable. Its not as good as a raw diet but its one of the closest formulas you can get. Wellness Core Ocean is not recommend for dogs under the age of 1, or inactive dogs. Due to the high amount of protein Wellness Core Ocean formula is great for working breed, compitition dogs and hunting dogs. If your dogs exerts high amounts of energy this would be a great formula to pick.

Wellness Core First Five Ingredients Review:

  1. Whitefish
  2. Whitefish Meal
  3. Salmon Meal
  4. Menhaden Fish Meal
  5. Potatoes

The first ingredient Whitefish is inclusive of its water content and once removed it should fall furthur down in the ingredients list, thus making Whitefish Meal the first true ingredient.

Following the first ingredient are three named meat ingredients. This is where most of your protein is going to come from. As with all fish ingredients ethoxyquin is always a hot topic. Wellness offers a statement on their website stating the use of ethoxyquin-free ingredients.

Potatoes, the fifth ingredient is a great source of carbohydrates to fuel you dogs energetic lifestyle.

    I have been feeding core ocean formula to my 13 yr old 45 pound corgi/chow mix for nearly 2 years now and she is doing great. I previously fed her Innova EVO. That is until the recall and I found out they were bought by P&G. I don’t trust P&G ingredients and they can change the formula and ingredients and not publish the change for 6 months. So for six months you can’t be sure what your dog is eating.
