And like you, we’re interested in feeding our pets real food from brands that are committed to sourcing nutritious ingredients and supporting sustainable agriculture practices. Keep reading to hear about a pet food brand that believes in offering better food for your felines and canines.
The History of Wellness
In 1997, a team of food scientists, veterinarians, and animal nutrition experts came together to establish Wellness, which launched with a line of dog food. Cat food recipes were added to the product line in 2000, and by 2004, Wellness had grown into a leading natural pet food brand, and was acquired by WellPet.
Wellness Company Mission
Providing wholesome, natural pet food is at the heart of the mission at Wellness. To keep its promises on quality, this brand developed a thorough quality assurance program that maintains checks and balances at every stage of the process. From working with suppliers who share the same values to developing recipes with an eye toward balanced nutrition, wellness always aims to go beyond the FDA requirements.
Benefits of Wellness
Your pet will love the taste of Wellness meals and treats, and you’ll love what’s inside.
- Nutrition: A range of nutritious ingredients—such as blueberries, barley, flaxseed, and oatmeal—are expertly chosen for their health benefits. Plus, added vitamins and probiotics bolster every bite.
- Innovation: Wellness has tasty kibble options, but to beat the boredom that can come with eating the same thing day after day, the brand developed its CORE line—toppers and treats that enhance the base meal.
- Community: The Wellness Foundation was started to promote pet adoption, ethical breeding practices, and to support organizations that care for pets in need.
