New Wellness grain-free canned food - The Conscious Cat
I know this is an older thread, but I’m hoping you can still help me. I have been on the hunt for a high-quality canned cat food that isn’t pate’ because my cats refuse to eat that texture, as well as a food that is appropriate for my 12-year-old diabetic boy, Chester. I recently tried Wellness Grain-Free Gravies canned food, which doesn’t contain carrageenan. I see in your comments that you no longer recommended Wellness because it contained carrageenan. With the grain-free gravies product not containing carrageenan, does this mean it’s a good choice? Thank you in advance!
The Wellness brand of cat food is produced and manufactured by WellPet, LLC. The history of this company can be traced all the way back to the Old Mother Hubbard Company and the release of oven-baked dog biscuits in 1926. In the years that followed, Wellness has expanded into a well-known brand of holistic pet food products for both dogs and cats. The Wellness website doesn’t state exactly where their ingredients come from or where their products are made, but their product labels carry a “Made in the U.S.A.” stamp.
Wellness Canned Cat Food Formulas are cat food specially formulated to provide your cat with healthful nutrition by using real meat, free of hormones or steroids, as the first ingredient. Fresh fruits and vegetables help round out the nutritional benefits to create a delicious tasting food cats love. Best of all, there are no junk ingredients (meat by-products, artificial colors, flavorings, preservatives, or animal fat). Although all of the Wellness formulas are great for all cats, they do not contain ingredients such as corn, soy, or wheat, which also makes this food ideal for cats that may have food allergies.I’ve written several times about a really wonderful brand of pet food called Wellness. I love this company and have fed their food to my pets for many years; their company’s philosophy is “you are what you eat!”; how basic can that be? well to Wellness it means that pet nutrition is never compromised. I was delighted when they reached out to me with a new product of canned food for both Cats and Dogs called CORE. I was delighted to try CORE for my cat Stinky since its been a while since he’s been introduced to a new brand.A. Wellness dry foods have an expiration of 18 months from date of manufacture. Wellness canned foods have an expiration of 3 years from date of manufacture. Dog & cat plastic cups have an expiration of 2 years from date of manufacture.Does wellness wet food and blue buffalo wet food have carragenan. I am trying to find excellent wet food gor my cats to avoid health problems. Unfortunately petsmart does, not have a big selection on healthy foods that does not contain bad I gredients. If I feed my cats blue buffalo and wellness wet food in small portions will try risk of cancer.What’s great about CORE is that its designed to accompany your pet that eats mostly dry food. CORE compliments the food, and thats what I’ve been doing with Stinky since he was a kitten. For cats there are CORE Canned Chicken, Turkey and Chicken Liver for poultry lovers and Salmon, Whitefish and Herring for those partial to fish. Each is grain-free, nutrient-packed, and contains high-quality protein. I was surprised to find out that Wellness goes as far as only using seafood that has never been fed grain either. So you know, the entire food cycle of the ingredients has been taken into consideration by Wellness.I feed my 3 cats Wellness dry but switched to canned/ raw after one of them had urinary blockage. Out of my 3 cats, Huyi, a former stray who had lived on dry most of her life, refused to eat anything that is good quality canned food. She refused the Wellness regular core can even when I mixed it with lower quality food that smells nicer and fishier.
