Wellness® Natural Pet Food Introduces Three New Complete Health™ Grain-Free Recipes for Dogs; Adds More Protein, Vitamins and Fatty Acids to Existing Formulas

New, grain-free recipes and improved formulas offer enhanced nutrition, value


TEWKSBURY, Mass., March 10, 2016 – Pet parents looking to feed their dogs quality natural nutrition without grains and fillers now have three new recipes to turn to from Wellness® Natural Pet Food. New Wellness® Complete Health™ Grain-Free recipes give dogs thoughtfully balanced nutrition, without grains and fillers, in three delicious flavors, helping support pets’ wellbeing from the inside out. No grains means there are more protein-rich ingredients dogs love and need for an active lifestyle, enriched with whole fruits, vegetables and botanicals to create a satisfying and easily-digested meal that supports health from head to tail. And, for pet parents who prefer whole grain diets for their dogs, existing Complete Health dry dog recipes have been improved to include more guaranteed protein for energy, vitamin A for tooth and gum health, and Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids to support healthy skin and coat.

“We are proud to give pet parents another thoughtful, well-balanced recipe for grain-free nutrition. We now offer grain-free recipes with Wellness Complete Health, Wellness CORE® and Wellness TruFood® giving our pet parents more choice when it comes to age, lifestyle, activity levels, protein sources and flavors,” said Chanda Leary-Coutu, Senior Marketing Communications Manager at Wellness Natural Pet Food. “We’ve also improved our six existing Complete Health dry dog food recipes to include more vitamins, nutrients and protein, sourced from wholesome, deboned meats.”

As always, Wellness Complete Health recipes provide the perfect balance of protein, fat and carbohydrates with no meat by-products, corn, soy or wheat, artificial colors, flavorings or preservatives. Each ingredient is thoughtfully chosen for its nutritional benefits, providing just what pets need for a happier, healthier, longer life. To see the benefits of Wellness Complete Health in your pet, look for the Five Signs of Wellness, the visible indicators of overall health and wellbeing, including skin and coat health, digestive health, energy, immunity, and healthy eyes, tooth and gums.
