Some Really Tasty New Food

I've heard for years that Wellness Core was good dog food. I only knew about the kibble, but many of the Portuguese Water Dog people that I hear from feed it and like it. It's always been in the back of my mind that we should try it sometime. I was really pleased to find that the canned version was available as a Chewy review item this month and didn't hesitate to order it.
I chose the turkey sampler which includes two flavors. First is turkey, chicken liver and turkey liver formula. It's grain and gluten free, contains greens and botanicals for health benefits and fish and flax omegas for skin and coat. Some of the good things in this formula are sweet potatoes, carrots, apples, spinach, blueberries, broccoli and kale as well as salmon oil, all things my dogs love to eat and are good for them.
The second formula is turkey, pork liver and duck formula. This one is grain and gluten free and is also fish free. It has the same veggies and fruits as the other but also has lots of vitamins.
My pack isn't easy to feed. The girls can eat most anything with no bad results, but my boys are all on different diets for their various intestinal issues. Then there is Sydney, who doesn't like much of anything. We have to coax her to eat each meal.

Sebastian eats turkey based home cooked food along with a little duck kibble and some pork added in, so the turkey, pork and duck formula seemed perfect for him. Mackey eats whatever Sebastian eats.  When Rob opened the food he remarked that it actually smelled good, like cooked meat. We're so used to strong fishy smelling food that this was obvious. He mixed some of the Wellness in with their regular dinner and they loved it.
 Then it was my turn. I agree, this food does smell better than most canned dog food. It also stays somewhat soft after refrigeration making it easier to mix into kibble. For the two boys, Fudge and Noah I used the turkey, duck, pork formula because they're both eating those already. The girls got the turkey and chicken formula mixed into their kibble.
My pack of experts agreed that this was excellent tasting food.
 They left their bowls shining.
 But what about the tough critic, Sydney? She came over to sniff it. She usually them walks away.
But this time she started eating and finished her meal with not a word from me. This doesn't happen often, so I guess this food must really be good.
Chewy sent us a case of Wellness CORE at no cost to us in exchange for our honest review.
