What Kind of Cat Food Does Wellness Offer?
Before we dive into detailed Wellness cat food reviews, let’s see what the company has to offer in general. The brand’s philosophy is to provide decent cat food that would support felines at any life stage and health condition. They promise to supply families with cat meals their pets love.
That is why all the Wellness cat foods are made of wholesome ingredients. They focus on the quality of proteins so that the diet looks natural for carnivores. There are also grain-free and grain-inclusive options to meet the needs of every cat. The brand does not add wheat, soy, corn, by-products, or fillers. You won’t also find artificial colors or other unknown substances.
There are two Wellness cat food line-ups: Core and Complete Health. I will give you a general understanding of these two cat food series.
Wellness Core cat food includes grain-free recipes focused on premium quality proteins to promote the utmost pet’s vitality. Because cats need animal proteins to survive, all the formulas are packed with proteins and other nutrients that ensure the well-being of the feline. The Core line includes kibble, RawRev (a combination of kibble and raw meat pieces), and wet foods (pâté, Core 95%, Simply Shreds Snacks, Tiny Tasters, Hearty Cuts, Signature Selects).
Wellness Complete Health cat recipes formulated to support pets with different health conditions and at various life stages. These are grain-free and grain-packed meals that include quality proteins and other essential nutrients to support the immune and urinary system, promote healthy digestion, and control energy levels. The company offers kibble and wet food in a great variety of textures (pâté, gravies, minced, sliced, morsels, Healthy Indulgence). There are crunchy bites for kittens called Kittles that will help the kitty clean teeth and have a snack in the between-the-meal time.
As there are so many product series within every line-up of Wellness cat food, let’s take a shortcut and take a closer look at dry and wet food varieties.
Wellness Dry Cat Food Review
Wellness is one of those rare brands that offer a huge selection of kibble. I was surprised, really, because the choice is often limited to 7 positions in a best-case scenario. Wellness provides 17! dry food recipes so that every feline could find their favorite flavor.
If you feed your cat with grain-free meals, there are 14 formulas to choose from. They include recipes for kittens, adults, indoor cats, senior felines. Wellness offers Core kibble that has a high protein level and supports felines at different life stages. You can also get the mix of raw meat pieces and kibble if you would like to add some raw food to your cat’s diet.
There are also recipes with wholesome grains like rice, barley, oatmeal to provide your active kitty with enough energy.
As I was browsing through the product list, I was intrigued by the Core RawRev recipes. They are the most sophisticated in the whole collection, so see no reasons to review one of the formulas. The Wellness Core RawRev Original + 100% Raw Turkey recipe is a mix of grain-free kibble and bites of freeze-dried turkey liver. According to many Wellness dry cat food reviews, cats love these raw pieces as that’s the natural way for the carnivore to eat. This formula gets the best of both worlds: the highest-quality protein-packed kibble domesticated cats got used to and raw meat pieces all carnivores crave in the wild. This meal offers an optimal balance of fat and calories, just what the indoor cat needs.

This is a grain-free formula with many quality sources. The primary ingredient is deboned turkey.

The recipe includes peas, potatoes, tomatoes, cranberries that deliver carbs, vitamins, and minerals.

Wellness Canned Cat Food Review
Wellness wet cat recipes deliver all the nutrients, vitamins, minerals your cat needs for happy and healthy well-being. There are formulas for all life stages and health conditions, as well as flavor preferences. Wellness wet recipes are packed with antioxidants and enzymes to support the immune system, digestion, urinary tract health, and others.
You’ll be surprised by the variety of wet food recipes Wellness offers. There are Complete Health pâté, gravies, morsels, minced, sliced textures. You can also choose between different product line-ups like Health Indulgence and Core recipes.
I would like to continue the Wellness wet cat food review with a breakdown of Wellness Healthy Indulgence® Morsels with Tuna. These are chunks of tuna and chicken cooked with other quality ingredients and packed into a small pouch. This formula is loved even by finicky eaters due to the natural ingredients and the texture felines love, which is proved by numerous Wellness canned cat food reviews. The meal will make a complete and balanced diet so that your furry friend could enjoy every day of their life.
Chicken Broth, Water Sufficient For Processing, Chicken, Tuna, Potato Starch, Eggs, Carrots, Chicken Liver, Natural Flavor, Salt, Guar Gum.
Just like in any wet food, the broth is the first ingredient on the list. Wellness also adds water to process other ingredients. Chicken is the main source of proteins, which is strange for the tuna recipe. Tuna takes fourth place, and I hope its amount is enough to add enough taste to the meal. There are vegetables like potatoes and carrots, which bring enough carbs to the recipe. Carbohydrates are also received through starch and guar gum, so their amount is higher than expected. The good news is that there are no by-products, grains, or fillers in the formula.
Refrigerate the unused portions of the Wellness wet pet food to avoid the leftovers spoiling and cat’s poisoning.
- High moisture and protein levels
- Delicious chunks in gravy
- No grains and by-products
- Blueberries and cranberries as an antioxidant source
- High carb level
