I have tried Wellness Core and it gave my dogs loose stools. I've heard that others have also had this issue.

I think it is a good, quality food and widely available. Petco carries it. If you have trouble buying premium food where you live, it might be worth trying with your dogs.

Sugarbaby eats Wellness Super 5 for puppies and we haven't had a single problem with it.

Oreo was eating wellness super 5 mix for small breed but he started having gas. I just switched him to Wellness Core Original since yesteday, hoping it is better for him.

Mine are on WSellness Core reduced fat. I swtched because of Kodi's weight problem and at Sabine's recommendation. There stools have gotten much better and they love the food. I tried it a while ago and they wouldn't eat it, but like it now.

Sabine also recommended Wellness Core Reduced Fat to me for Tucker. He has issues with loose stools, and this has not been a problem. He only gets supplemented with it, mostly eats Nature's Variety Raw Medallions, but has some kibble each day, too.

I've fed mine everything from the Puppy, Small Breed & Wellness Core & they've done well on it. Never had any real issues issues with stool.

Wellness Core Reduced fat has been the only formula of dog food that has been able to get weight off my older girls: Mimi & Sophie.

We tried Wellness at one point and Kodi had terrible gas from it. It's amazing how the same food works so differently for different dogs!

I've been feeding Josie "Health Extension" little bites..the ingredients are impressive...probably beter than what my kids eat in an average day! I mix with a little wet food from the same brand. I'm almost done with an 18 pound bag that we started in December!

I've narrowed it down to Fromm Fourstar.....Taste of the Wild....Go Natural.....Orijen and Wellness core...it's basically going to come down to what is carried locally...which probably won't be much lol based on other things I have looked for........I'm alarmed because the current food only got two stars OUCH! And very alarmed after reading all the info on what the vet gave me...YIKES!

After reading everything about the different foods online I'm kind of now leaning towards Taste of the Wild-Wetlands......Now I just have to wait on the stores to open..........
