Hi, I had heard about the purchase of the Wellness division from Old Mother Hubbard a couple of months ago. I have used Wellness canned grain free for both adults and kittens in my house and never had a problem. I've used it for about a year and a half now and my cats have always thrived on it. I think the ingredients are well sourced and top grade, and I have confidence in the company. I know many others that feed Wellness and also report very good results with their kitties.
Wellness as a company was purchased by another company (Berwind Industries) in the past few months, and I was concerned about quality or other changes in ingredients that sometimes occur after an acquisition. I haven't seen anything that would make me question the food or the company however. In fact, after the acquisition was announced I wrote to the Marketing Communications Manager and the Director of Quality Assurance at Wellness, and had a lengthy phone call with them about their current processes and what changes would occur. They both assured me that no changes were planned and that 100% high quality ingredients would be continued. They were both forthcoming in their answers and seemed very sincere. I've never experienced such quality customer service with a pet food company before.
If you have any questions you'd like to direct at them, here's the info on the Marketing Communications Manager that I corresponded and spoke with:
