At Wellness, every ingredient we choose has a purpose, especially when it comes to dogs with food sensitivities. Our natural, limited-ingredient recipes keep it simple with a single source of protein and easily digestible carbohydrates, without extra fillers or additives.
This short, yet complete, list of key ingredients nourishes simply and completely from the inside out with results you can see. Just like all Wellness® recipes, what stays out is as important as what goes in, so we don’t use wheat, corn, soy, gluten or artificial preservatives, colors or flavors in this simple formula. As animal lovers, nutritionists and vets, our mission is to provide your pet a healthy, happy, long life through the power of natural nutrition.
Food allergies and food intolerances
Food intolerance refers to a gastrointestinal response triggered by certain ingredients. For instance, a dog with a sensitive stomach may not be able to tolerate certain ingredients that then lead to diarrhea, vomiting or irritable bowel.
A food allergy refers to an immune response to a particular ingredient in food that can cause itching, scratching, hot spots, hair loss, ear and eye secretions, or excessive licking. A dog may be born with specific allergies, or they may build over time from prolonged exposure to certain ingredients. The most common food allergens for dogs are corn, dairy products, and wheat. (The most common offenders are some of the most common ingredients in dog foods.)
