Manufacturer's product description

" Wellness CORE feeds dogs as nature intended with more meat, less carbs & no fillers together with a fresh meat taste every dog will love! With fresh meat as the number 1 ingredient and 100% grain-free it is a perfect recipe for dogs with food allergies. Omega-3 fatty acids from full-fat linseed & salmon oil support a healthy skin & coat. Pro- and prebiotics help to maintain a healthy digestive tract.

The Wellness CORE difference is that in addition to excluding grains, we also reduce the total amount of carbohydrates in our recipes and increase the levels of protein while keeping a moderate level of fat. This ensures that your pet will get more of the good stuff and no fillers!

Each kibble is a protein powerhouse with guaranteed protein levels between 30-37% in the final kibble.

We guarantee these levels which can be checked on the back of pack, because that's what your dog actually eats and this is what will keep your dog healthy and active. "

My dogs have thrived on this for years, however the 10kg ocean version of this seems to be getting harder and harder to source, Pets At Home is permanently out of stock or has barely any stock of it and Amazon seem to be charging £55+, as do other online retailers. Have switched my dogs over to Wainwrights Atlantic salmon, they seem to be getting on well with it so far.

Why is there no mention of enterococcus faecium ncimb 10415 as technical additive as it states on packaging? Back in may my dog had a spell of being horribly sick and vet seemed to think it was something he’s eaten. My husband and I seemed to think it was something in Lily’s kitchen woofbrushes (specifically guy health ones) because he used to be sick after he’s had them. Since then we had him on canagan as wanted to offer better quality diet (his coat and skin condition wasn’t great). However, as it’s pretty pricey I tasked myself with a mission of finding a cheaper but good quality food. And Core Wellness appeared to be very similar in composition as well as scored pretty high on both pet expert and all about dog food. I am currently slowly changing his food and today he’s half and half on canagan/core. But today after his breakfast and walk he was sick…. I looked at ingredients on both packaging and came across the additive above. Having googled it, even though it says it probiotic and widely used in dog food it doesn’t sound too good. I’ve gone through tens of dog food websites studying their composition and majority of them have fructooligosacharide etc instead. What is the reasoning behind this specific strain used in core dog food (enterococcus faecium) and could it cause my dog being sick??

Very interesting point though the likely hood of your dog being sick could be many other factors the main one being he's adapting to change of the diet. My dog has been on Wellness core since a puppy no issues. I mix with wet food Butchers meat recipes in jelly but recently started to use Langham's 100% complete wet food which he seems to enjoy more maybe cause its different to Butchers that he's been on for a year. Though for dry he's always been on wellness core no issues probably best dry food to value ratio you can buy.
