Our dog has been eating wellness canned dog food for years. He loves it and is very healthy and full of energy. Over the last couple of months we have bought several cases of this dog food both from Amazon and the local pet store that have completely changed in consistency. It has been very mushy and slimy and the dog doesn't want to eat it. I contacted the local pet store and Wellness directly...neither knew of anything that could possibly be wrong with it. The explanation from Wellness was that the two places they use to manufacture it use different methods of cooking the food which would account for the consistency change. I worry every time I buy this food now if it will be a good batch or not. It seems like every other case we buy is still the regular consistency. I continue to stick with it and hope for the best because our dog has had digestive issues in the past and this food agrees with his system. I really hope Wellness reads these reviews and makes sure to remedy this issue.

Watch where the product is manufactured-
I just started giving my puppy the food from this batch of Wellness Just for Puppies- she usually loves this food. The consistency of the food was liquid and she refused to eat it. Opened 2 other cans from this same batch and same consistency! I called Wellpet (Wellness) and after giving serial number on bottom of can , customer rep said this batch was produced in West Coast facility where the product is a loser consistency than product produced in East Coast facility. I wish I knew this before ordering a brand new case of 12 from Amazon this week, Too bad Amazon gets this product from both facilities and doesn't' let consumer know..my puppy knows which consistency she likes-East Coast batch which is firmer and slightly different taste..

Choking hazard: Beware of bone fragments
By M. Kirby
Choking hazard: Beware of bone fragments (some sharp and hard)! Image attached. I bought 2 cases of the Wellness Senior Forumula within the past month for my toy dogs. Most of the cans in the first case were okay, but then I started noticing little white crunchy fragments from some. I was not sure what they were. There were more of those fragments and little black flakes in the cans from the last shipment I received a few days ago. From what is listed under ingredients, I have not been able to make out what the black flakes are as I did not noticed them in many of the other cans. After carefully sifting through each can and removing the white fragments, it dawned on me this morning that those fragments are definitely bones. Each fragment appears to be approximately 1/4 to 1/5 of an inch long and still hard. Small as they may appear, I think they can be a choking hazard for senior dogs, and especially toy dogs. I like Wellness overall. My dogs love the taste, however, I will no longer be buying this particular can for my senior Chihuahua.
