Jul 5, 2002 - One of the problems with the Wellness Wet food is that garlic is toxic to cats. I believe you can find information on it at the following site:
I have a cat that never had a urinary problem, that is until I switched his food recently to the Wellness Core Food. He’s currently at the vet being treated for a urinary blockage due to struvite crystals.
Hi Mike, this website primarily focusses on ingredients and nutrition analysis and as such Wellness CORE holds up. However, the amount of complaints with this food is alarming and I hope this is clearly apparent with the review and subsequent comments. Many people associate any illness with their pet to the food they feed, which isn’t necessarily based on fact. Many cats suffer kidney problems, which may be caused by their diet, lack of water, or anything else. Personally I’d be deterred from Wellness CORE by the comments on this page, but will leave it to the readers to decide for themselves. I certainly appreciate your feedback, and that of all the other people who’ve commented – raising awareness is the key. Thanks.

It's no exaggeration to say that a cat that eats the best cat food possible, a healthy food like Wellness cat food, will have fewer visits to the vet, fewer health problems, and cost much less in the long run!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. is highly rated among pet owners, but they complain vociferously when the formulations are not consistent from case to case and when cans of food are dented, which, according to customers, is an occasional problem. I feed my cat Wellness wet cat food and I've not had this problem; my cat is happy and healthy (he's 13) and eats both wet and dry formula Wellness foods. If you do receive different formulations of the same foods or dented cans, be sure to return them - I know will refund these purchases.Wellness is a top selling food and maybe that's part of the issue. Cats can get can urinary problems due to eating dry food anyway and also stress is a big factor, and since so many people feed it, you'll tend to hear more about these issues than you would with something like 'Chicken Soup for the Pet Lovers Soul' (as an example because I don't think it's fed nearly as much). I inquired at a couple small pet stores about what their top selling foods are and they said Wellness is up there. That said, that doesn't mean there aren't issues with the dry food and urinary , but there are still many people who feed the dry food and those cats don't all have urinary problems. There have been some cats here on Catster that have developed urinary issues while eating Wellness and I understand the concerns. My older cat has had UTIs (related to kidney disease and very dilute urine) so I understand the concerns. I just wanted to share an observation while also trying not to minimizing these experiences. Also maybe they've adjusted their formulas since these issues came to light in the last few years?
