Wellness CORE RawRev dog food review

My thoughts on the RawRev food

My dogs Ace and Remy got to try the Wellness CORE RawRev dog food which is grain-free dry food mixed with freeze-dried raw bites. Learn more about the food HERE.

While I prefer to feed a raw diet, I always keep dry dog food on hand and Wellness CORE is my top choice.

It’s great there is now an option that includes at least some raw food.  While the majority of dog owners are not interested in feeding 100% raw for a variety of reasons, this is a nice “in between” option that will appeal to most dog owners.

My dogs also got to try the Wellness CORE freeze-dried raw treats. These are single ingredient treats made with 100% beef, boar, salmon or turkey. My dogs had the boar option.

Wellness CORE freeze dried treats

What is the cost?

Wellness CORE products are available online through Chewy, Petco, PetSmart, Amazon and more. Click here.

The RawRev food and 100% freeze dried treats are brand new, but you will likely start seeing them around soon!

You can buy Wellness CORE products directly at a Petco or PetSmart store and other pet specialty stores.

The RawRev food comes in Original (turkey and chicken), Wild Game (duck, lamb, boar and rabbit) and Small Breed (turkey and chicken).

Prices may very but range roughly from $19.99 for a 4-pound bag to $64.99 for a 20-pound bag.

The food is available in 4, 10, 18 (Wild Game only) and 20-pound (Original only) bags. Learn more about the food here.

What’s unique about this food?

Wellness is a brand I trust, and it has a good reputation among pet owners. With so many dog food companies out there (some better than others), that’s saying a lot!

The RawRev food is one of the few options out there that combines dry food and freeze-dried raw, although there are other brands that offer this too.

It’s also nice to see treats that are made with one ingredient (MEAT). This is helpful for dogs with allergies to various protein sources, grains or other ingredients.

Pros of the RawRev food:

  • A great way to introduce some raw food to your dog’s diet (raw food is more natural to dogs!)
  • Meal meat as the first ingredients
  • Made with real, pronounceable and recognizable ingredients
  • Grain free (dogs generally don’t need grains)
  • It’s a naturally preserved product
  • Contains no animal by-products


  • I wish there were more freeze-dried raw pieces in the food, but this food is not made for people who want to feed 100% raw

You can learn more about the food HERE.

I would recommend the RawRev food for …

Wellness is a brand I trust, and I would recommend this food for anyone looking for a healthy dry dog food option with the added benefit of some raw bites.

I normally order Wellness CORE dry food through Chewy, but now I’ll look for the RawRev option.

Excellent product. Contains inulin (chicory root) a probiotic. Keeps my little ones' tummies happy! Poop is always perfect my vet says. Few companies do carbs correctly, but the potato ingredient sure helps digestibility in this product. Salmon oil and flaxseed wow. my pups are all the proof I need!

Recommend dropping a fecal sample at your vet once a month or so for a float its about $14 at my vet. Your dogs poop is one of the best indicators of their health and its a cheap test.

And I stay away from all cans if you need wet do pumpkin/sweet potato/white rice/rice water/egg etc all very good for your pet.

My pup has been on Wellness since he was weaned. I would love to try some of the new Raw food.....well, Cooper would anyway. I am a Senior on a fixed income. How is the affordability of this compared to the Wellness Core that I have him on now?
