Wellness Pet Food has continued to grow its following among dog lovers since they started in the ‘90s. They are focused on elevating dogs’ wellbeing to a new level of vitality through natural, premium proteins, balanced nutrients, and antioxidants in each of the products they create.
So I wanted to check for myself if it’s something Dex can really benefit from. In this review, I’ll be sharing details about their Complete Health Dog Food line based on the facts I’ve gathered and Dex’s actual experience with some of their products with a focus on the Deboned Chicken & Oatmeal recipe.
Aside from their nutrition factor, these crunchy kibbles’ taste seems to be a huge part of their dog food’s appeal judging from the way Dex gobbled up his bowlfuls with his tail wagging in delight each time.
Find out if this love at first taste is a match made in heaven with this Wellness Complete Health Dog Food Review.

Frequently Asked Questions
The Wellness Complete Health scores high in the ingredients metric because they do offer premium chicken meat and meal and none of those unspecified meat byproducts that can be found in other dog food brands. They also use other densely nutritious and antioxidant packed ingredient clusters that work well in promoting bones, teeth, and muscles, skin and coat, heart, brain, cellular, and immunity health.
The positive reviews also outweigh the negative. Although some reported that their dogs had diarrhea after consuming it, the general consensus among buyers is that previously picky dogs enjoyed their Complete Health kibbles and have shown increase in energy and coat glow.
They also score high in recipe variety because they have a wide array of variants to choose from like dry kibble, wet/canned food, and treats.
Price-wise, I gave it an 85% because while it’s slightly more expensive than other dry dog foods in the market, it is more affordable when compared to other premium brands and products that offer similar high-quality protein and grain ingredients.
They score relatively low in recall because they’ve had several product recalls in the past (2011, 2012, and 2017) due to food quality and safety concerns. The most recent one was in March 2017 for their canned beef topper due to high levels of beef thyroid hormone.
The overall rating is 85% which is the average score when all these criteria are factored in.
While there are some things that made me pause before letting Dex try this brand like recall history and other cons in the ingredients, the result of our product trial turned out to be a pleasant experience.
Dex always seemed to have a spring in his paws at the sight and binge of this product, particularly the one he tried for two months – the Deboned Chicken and Oatmeal variety.
The wellness messaging they put forth does come with substance – literally. You will find high-quality sources of animal protein (real and natural chicken, whitefish, and lamb respectively for the variants he tried), whole grains, superfoods like spinach, tomatoes, and blueberries, and other nutrient-rich ingredients for that well-rounded health-optimizing profile. All these at a fairly affordable price compared to other premium brands.
It’s also the kind of healthy food that does not relegate flavor to the backseat and this is consistent with all the recipes he tried. He loved all 3 but he took more liking to the Deboned Chicken and Oatmeal recipe.
So overall, it’s a yes for Dex and I and we recommend this Wellness Complete Health line.
