Frequently Asked Questions

Can Evanger's products help with urinary tract infections?

Yes. Struvite crystals, rock-like accretions that scrape sensitive tissues in the urinary tract, are a major cause of inflammation and infection in dogs and cats. The formation of struvite crystals is possible when urine is too alkaline. In meat, we are provided with an acidifier that is natural and promotes overall good health in dogs and cats. So increasing the amount of high quality meat consumed can acidify the urine and help prevent the formation of struvite crystals. Evanger’s offers many canned products whose sole ingredient is USDA meat. Choose from among the eight Grain Free Game Meats, , Hunk of Beef, 100% Organic Chicken, as well as many others. These products are excellent supplements or treats for dogs and cats. For balanced meals, which contain vitamins and minerals, try our Chicken Dinner and Beef Dinner for dogs; USDA certified Organic Braised Chicken Dinner, Organic Turkey with Butternut Squash, and Holistic Pheasant Dinner for cats. Of course, any dog or cat with urinary tract problems should be under the care of a veterinarian.

Can I feed dog food to my cats and cat food to my dogs?

Any Evanger’s food that is pure meat, such as the Grain Free Game Meats, Hunk of Beef, and Wild Salmon, can be fed to both cats and dogs as snacks, treats, or mixed with Evanger’s dry food, snacks, or treats. However, foods that include vitamins and minerals to make a complete balanced diet are formulated specifically for a dog or cat and should be fed to the indicated species.

Knowing the different dietary needs of dogs and cats is very important because pet owners that allow a dog to eat cat food or a cat to eat dog food could end up with a very sick pet….or worse. Illnesses do not usually happen if only a few meals are shared, but will happen if it continues on a regular basis. Incidentally, dogs are omnivores like people; they eat both meat and vegetables. Cats are obligate carnivores; they eat mostly meat. Cats have a higher protein and fat requirement than dogs. Dogs that eat cat food could end up with liver, kidney and/or pancreatic problems because cat foods are too high in protein and fat for dogs to properly metabolize. Cats that eat dog foods could end up blind or with a serious heart condition called dilated cardiomyopathy because cats have a dietary need for taurine. Dogs naturally make the amino acid taurine, while cats must have it supplied in their diets; all Evanger’s cat foods contain taurine.

Cats also require a different form of Vitamin A. Dogs, like people, naturally manufacture Vitamin A, if Beta-carotene is supplied in the diet. Last but not least, cats require arachidonic acid, an essential fatty acids for cats. Dogs can manufacture Arachodonic Acid from Omega 3 fatty acids. Both dogs and cats require linoleic (Omega 6) and linolenic (Omega 3) fatty acids.

Why are there bones in Hand-Packed Chicken dinners?

Evanger’s special slow-cook, pressure-cook process softens the bones so they are splinter-free and easily digestible. Feel free to squeeze a bone in Whole Chicken Thighs or Roasted Chicken Drummette Dinner, you’ll see that the bone collapses instead of splintering, providing the ideal meal for your dog – safe, nutritious, and delicious. Bones add flavor and texture, and are great natural sources of crucial nutrients like calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and iron.

Can I feed Evanger's products to my diabetic dog or cat?

Yes… Diabetic dogs and cats need to reduce carbohydrate intake while maintaining a balanced diet. Evanger’s canned diets contain so much meat (exception: Vegetarian Dinner and 100% Sweet Potato), that they can often be incorporated into the diet of diabetic dogs and cats with healthy kidneys. Diabetic dogs and cats should eat more fowl than red meat. Gold Line Chicken Dinner and Beef Dinner offer dogs a balanced meal with no added carbohydrates. Similarly, Hand Packed Whole Mackerel with Gravy for cats is a delicious low-carb meal. The eight Grain Free Game Meats and Hunk of Beef and Wild Salmon are nutrient-rich, tasty supplements or treats for diabetic dogs and cats. Please remember that diabetes is a serious medical condition that requires veterinary care. Pets being treated with insulin will require blood checks and possible insulin adjustment when changes are made to the diet.

  • Excellent quality, my cats enjoy their meals

    By on

    I have nine cats and go through eight cases of this wet food per month. They always eat their portion. Because it's mostly meat, a serving is quite small--about two heaping tablespoons twice a day, each. The high (meat) protein makes them comfortable for a long period so they don't go crazy when it's meal time. No gorging or other desperate behavior. And litter box is much neater, if you know what I mean.

  • Quality AND Price

    By on

    I am very particular about what I feed my 4 cats and was told about Evanger's from a friend. My cats love it (all flavors) and I do too. The best part of ordering from Chewy is getting it delivered to my door rather than having to carry heavy parcels home from the market. I recommend it without reservations!

(( I'm not sure if I can return it..

  • Cats love it!

    By on

    My local pet store carries it in small cans, so I have tried the chicken, beef and fish. This is by far the favorite, for all 3 of my cats. The owner of the pet store, (Four Perfect Pets in Oakdale, MN), said she had toured the factory and she had only good things to say about the food and the manufacturing company. I'm so glad I found this.

  • A nice alternative to the same old stuff

    By on Top 25 Contributor

    I bought a case of this food to try to see if my cats would enjoy it. They eat it, although not with the enthusiasm of their regular canned food. The senior cats seem to like it more than the younger ones.

  • My current two fosters like it, sometimes my permanent cats do too

    By on

    My personal kitties are super picky, sometimes they like this food, sometimes not. But I run a nonprofit kitten rescue, and my three fosters like it, so that's good enough for me! I can't figure out why it's so well priced... it doesn't have a ton of unnecessary ingredients, it only has one thickener... it comes in big cans. What's not to love. I would say find a local store and buy a can or two to see if your kitties like it before you buy a case. Or, buy a case from Chewy and if your cats don't like it, donate the remainder to a local cat rescue! If they're a 501(c)3 your donation is tax deductible!

  • My cat loves this food

    By on

    I love that this food comes in a large can, so one can lasts 3-4 meals! Economical and better on the environment to use less packaging. My cat loves the chicken formula as well as the fish formula, so we change it up on a regular basis. He used to be morbidly obese, have UTI's and has been blocked in the past, but on this diet, he is now a healthy weight and very happy!

  • Cats not thrilled.

    By on

    First of all, the food is 'gritty' because it has flaxseeds in it.... NOT because there are bones. That's ridiculous. Don't listen to people who don't bother to read the ingredients. That being said: My cats are simply not fans of any food containing flaxseed unless it's in oil form... Not this one, not pricey brands... Nothing. If your cat is a picky eater, I suggest reading the ingredients and avoiding flax if you can. A lot of pet food ingredients might sound appealing to you, but chances are they aren't for your cat.

  • My cats and I love this food

    By on

    We have fed Evanger's Chicken Lickin for years, and probably over 90% of our foster cats love it. I've corresponded with the company several times, and I always get a fast response. The meat is locally sourced. The ingredients are wholesome. This is a great food for the price. However, some of my friends said their cats didn't like it. You might try smaller cans first. As always, mix it half and half with the regular food for a week or so to avoid digestive issues.
