EVO Weight Management Dry Dog Food
Good for my dog.
This is the first weight management food that I've ever had for my dog that she has actually liked. I hope she doesn't gain weight on it because she is supposed to lose weight, but I am a pushover for those sad eyes and the endless wait next to the bowl. I have never had to govern a diet kibble.

After a long search for a high-quality grain free dog food, my mother-n-law found Evo and told us about it. We switched our dog (12 yr old German Shepherd) from Nutro to Evo about 3 years ago and haven't looked back! When our dog has blood work done, our vet always tells us he has the blood work of a puppy! When the recalls from Evo began in April we had a hard time getting it in to our local Pet Supplies Plus. I called Evo and the customer service rep recommended we try Chewy.com. I not only found it cheaper online through Chewy but I didn't have to special order it from Pet Supplies Plus or drive the 25 minutes into town to pick it up. It came right to my doorstep. It was a speedy delivery and we are very happy!

Better than prescription diet for diabetic dogs.
After review of dog foods at my vet, I went to do my own research. Evo had the least carbs and enough to maintain my dog's needs. He was diagnosed with diabetes with blood sugars over 650. He is down to 6 units of insulin bid with the evo. Thanks to this food and treats for keeping my little Ashton alive and well.

Phase it in
Our German Shepherd took to it after phasing it in with his old. He is almost off the old and completely on this and EVO canned as a topping. We use this bc his brother has cancer and is on a low carb diet and likes to steal food so we need a low carb kibble. THis is the lowest carb dry food I could find. Also I like the idea or having my dogs on a diet similar to their ancestral history.

Helps dogs maintain blood sugar who have Diabetes
I have a dog, a Weimaraner, who was recently diagnosed with Insulin Dependent Diabetes. He is 7 years old and is also Hypothyroid. I was having a hard time finding a food that would not cause his blood sugar's to sky rocket into the 400's (most of the food i tried was doing this). I saw the Evo Weight Management food and I wanted to try that for him. I did. This food has been a life saver for me and my dog; this is the first food that has kept his blood sugars in the 100-200 range! I was so happy and my dog was feeling better also. I informed my vet about this dog food I was using and how much improved Oliver's (my dog) blood sugars have been. I would recommend this dog food to anyone who has a dog with Diabetes and is having difficulty controlling their blood sugars; my vet also said he would recommend this to any patients/owners who have newly diagnosed dogs with Diabetes. Thank you Evo, you have helped me and my dog Oliver!

Only Dog Food that Lables their Total Carbs (11%)
Ole Earl the Weimaraner sure seems to love it, time will tell if he gets in better shape, loosing about 12 lbs. EVO is one of the most expensive but other 'grain-free' premiums' have higher carb ingredients like potato and Potato Starch.
It seems like a good 'weight management' formula.

for overweight diabetic german shepard
I was feeding my dog Hills WD, but her blood glucose was still too high, and very erratic. WD is mostly corn after all, not sure why they consider that food for glucose management.
With the first serving of EVO I saw a difference in her blood glucose. BE aware you will probably need to adjust insulin dose down. I gave 3 less units than normal and her blood sugar still got too low. I actually had to feed her more to keep her sugar high enough for the rest of the night. I think with the next serving I will cut insulin dose in half, do a new blood glucose curve and work from there. I am comfortable doing this because I am a nurse very familiar with diabetes and insulin. I also have an Alphatrak2 meter so I am able to monitor her glucose closely. I would recommend others consult with their Vet if they want to change to this food.
I have high hopes that this food is going to help control my dog's diabetes and reduce her insulin needs. It is well worth the price because the serving size recommended is half as much as her other dog food, because the protein is so dense you do not need as much. Plus the ingredients in this food are so much better for her.
