by LunasButler I’m switching from Evanger’s for two reasons...
...quality control problems and my dog’s preference.
My much adored Jindo is a finicky eater. She will get around to it but has always shown a surprising lack of enthusiasm come mealtime. Additionally, though for her first year and a half we always provided her quality wet food, she ran around looking emaciated with her ribs disturbingly pronounced and us getting cross-wise looks.
One day, while in PetSmart, one of the reps (for another line) recommended Evanger’s as a quality, American made option. Our goal was to find a stew formula that would mix with the kibble we were also feeding her more easily and more tantalizingly than the “loaf” products. Over time, we moved up the line from the less expensive stuff to the signature series. In particular their “Slow Cooked Chicken Stew” at an eye-popping $32/case of 12.
First the quality issue, I’m now seeing with alarming frequency cans that pour out as “soup” rather than with the thicker “stew” consistency I paid for. I called Evanger’s and spoke to a very nice man there who was surprised to hear of the issue and am waiting to hear back. In the meantime, as I told him, this is disappointing. These errant cans are not, as claimed, super-premium and it makes me question whether or not such production line variance is endangering my dog.
Second, while cruising the Chewy site for other stew alternatives, I came across the Whole Earth Farms (WEF) line of canned stew products. Wow.
- Also American made (a value brand of Merrick)
- Great ingredients (rated better at Dog Food Advisor Com than the Evanger’s product)
- $12 per case LESS than the comparable Evanger’s product!
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, my dog goes nuts for it!!!
Your experience may very but at our house, it’s not even close.
Suggest you give it a try and see what your furry dinner guest has to say to you.

Very runny food with really small pieces of chicken. It's like all gravy. When I put some in my dog's dish, he just stared at it. He won't eat it unless I put some dry food on top. It's going to take me a long time to get through the case I bought.

I found that a lot of the cans are inconsistant with content, some very soupy and some more dry.
Dog didnt really care for it either, I will be spending my money even if a little more on something a little more consistant and better tasting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TinaNC Mislabeling
We've ordered this food several times in the past. The first ingredient listed is chicken, the second turkey liver. All other previous cases has been true to this labeling...meaty chunks of chicken and SOME turkey liver. However, this most recently case has ALL turkey liver...big, thick chunks of it. NO chicken to be seen in all the cans...I've opened half the case & in frustration for not wasting any more of the $32, I plan to donate the remaining 6 cans to the local shelter. I have contacted Evangers directly but wanted to alert anyone else to this discrepancy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Naenae Looks Like Stew
I like that you can tell this is stew with chunks of chicken and vegetables however, the chunks of chicken too large and also have a red tinge to them.
We cut up the chunks best we can since we have one small, one medium and one large dog.

My 17 lb. / 12 yr old Bichon Frise, "JAZZY" loves this food. I love the quality of Evanger's foods. Ordering from Chewy.com was a breeze. Highly recommend both the food and Chewy.com.

Rated 5 out of 5 by poochesrus Our dogs all love this food!
Even our littlest, pickiest old Italian Greyhound loves this food! The consistency (as some other reviewers mentioned) is a bit runny, which makes it easier for our older dogs to eat and mixes easily with dry kibble. The ingredients are wonderful and the price is great for such a high quality food. Our dogs love Evangers and we use many of their different foods in our rescue, can't say enough good things! This particular food is a favorite!
