So I recently switched Sadie over to Wellness Puppy after feeding her Blue Buffalo for a while. I loved Blue Buffalo and what it did for her coat, but unfortunetly she stopped eating it! She would only eat it if I were to mix it with something, so I am trying something different. So far she seems to like Wellness and is eating it the majority of the time, she is one picky little girl! Although, I haven't noticed any big changes in her coat, which I am hoping stays the same because it is so nice and shiny.

Anyone else feed their puppy Welless? Heard anything about Wellness? Have any ideas?

We bought a bag of Wellness Core and before we even opened it came to find out that Corgis are better off with a lower protein diet, especially when they are young and still growing as protein is believed to cause Pano and other growth issues. Core is very rich and a Wellness rep even told me it is intended for very active working dogs, not your average house pet. I know a Corgi breeder who feeds it to her dogs but she mixes half Core with half of a lower protein food.

I got samples from them and Ein liked the Wellness Super5mix and the Wellness Original Core. But if I were to change brands, I would go with the Wellness Super5mix, just because I think Core is too rich. I believe that dogs eat better than we do in terms of eating right (Meat, veggies, grains, fruits in 1 meal).

Soffie & Griffyn eat Wellness. We switch off between Wellness Core Reduced Fat and Simple5mix weight control. They both love it and have never had a problem switching between them. Guess we've been lucky that way.

I feed Cooper Wellness. He loves it! I like it mostly because if you look at the ingredients they are all things I would eat (not implying that I eat dog food). Haha. But I trust their food very much

I had this issue with Domino for a while. She wouldn't eat much of her food at all throughout the day but the vet said that she's at a healthy weight for her size and age so I shouldn't worry about it. One thing that did help though is the Vita gravy packs. I'll put a little bit of the bacon or bbq chicken flavor over her dry food and she goes crazy for it.

Does Wellness have any by-products or meal in it?

I feed wellness and switched the new puppy to wellness as soon as I could. I think that blue buffalo is a great food but for some reason it gave the puppy some wicked farts. Blargh.

Finnigan ate Blue Buffalo Chicken Puppy food then we switched him to Wellness Super5Mix Chicken adult food and he had loose stools for over a month. We didn't link it to the food right away because there were other things that took place at the same time which we thought were the cause. After nothing else worked our vet said he could have developed an intolerance to chicken since that's all he'd ever eaten and we should try a more unusual protein such as Duck or Venison. We switched him to Natural Balance Duck and Potato and the problem went away. Guess it was the food after all. He likes the Natural Balance and it keep his coat shiny and smooth, plus it costs a little less than Wellness.
