Wellness pet food uses five indicators to gauge your pet’s health. These five signs of wellness are:
- nourished skin and a shiny coat
- healthy eyes, teeth, and gums
- strong immunity
- an active digestive system
- high energy levels
If you feel that your pet is lethargic or deficient in any of these areas, you may consider changing their food.
Wellness CORE formulates its dog and cat food with natural, high-protein ingredients. It makes wet and dry options, including grain-free recipes.
Below, we’ll go into more depth with the five signs of wellness. In a six-month AAFCO Feeding study, over 24,000 meals of Wellness CORE food were fed to cats and dogs. Those lucky animals helped confirm that pets fed Wellness exhibit several scientifically proven health benefits.
Wellness CORE balances protein with nutrient-dense foods to create a complete pet food with guaranteed levels of nutrients for dogs and cats. There are grain and grain-free recipes available for various breed sizes, life stages and taste preferences.
These popular Wellness foods are all available at PetSmart.com.
Here are five ways a change in diet could help boost your pet’s health. And as a reminder, you should always talk with your veterinarian before changing your pet’s diet.
Nourished Skin & Coat
A clean and shiny coat is a snuggle-friendly coat. A diet with essential vitamins and minerals, as well as fatty acids like Omega-3 and Omega-6 can help promote healthy skin and coats.
Wellness CORE guarantees minimum levels of these fatty acids, which it sources from ingredients like salmon and flaxseed.
Optimal Digestive Health
Upset stomachs can be caused by diet. The result is often a pet that doesn’t want to play or seems less excited.
Wellness CORE Digestive Health recipes include probiotics, prebiotics, pumpkin and healthy fiber to aid the digestion of a balanced diet of nutrients. The foods also include Omega 3 Fatty Acids and other essential vitamins.
Healthy Eyes, Teeth & Gums
Ideally, your pet’s eyes are clear and exhibit no signs of excess tearing. Likewise, their teeth and gums should be clean and not inflamed.
Wellness Complete Health doesn’t target eyes or teeth. Rather, it promotes your pet’s overall well-being through a balance of natural proteins and whole grains in its formulas. Some Wellness Complete Health recipes are fortified with ingredients such as zinc, selenium and vitamin E to help your pet maintain their optimum health.
There’s not a simple way to measure your pet’s energy, but as a pet parent, you can tell if they’re less enthusiastic about playing or unable to keep up. Beyond natural aging, this can be a sign that your pet isn’t getting enough energy from their food.
Energy comes from proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Rather than putting one category over the other, Wellness Complete Health blends its ingredients to find a balance of nutrients from all three categories. Each food bag explains the size and age the recipe is for and has serving suggestions to meet AAFCO feeding standards.
A pet’s overall well-being is tied their immune system and their ability to ward off toxins in their environment. Each Wellness Complete Health recipe is crafted with antioxidants to help support your pet’s strong immune system.
