“I have a Chesapeake Bay Retriever with mild/severe allergies. He absolutely loves this dog food. At times he is very picky about what he eats, yet with food he eats it quite readily. It is a bit stinky but if he is eating and not having an allergic reaction it’s worth it.”
“Recently our Mastiff became covered in red, blotchy, spots that turned to scabs and caused hair loss. We headed to the vet. She suspected after all these years, he developed a food allergy, and most common she said, is beef and poultry. She suggested we try a change in food and treats. We looked up the best foods to try. Core by Wellness has whitefish and had very high ratings. We bought a 4lb bag to try out. He loved it, he also loved the treats we got him. After a month now, he is doing so much better. I believe the vet was right. Definitely sticking to this food.”
