Transition Instructions

A new pet food should be gradually introduced to your animal by mixing it with their current food. For a nice, slow transition, replace the old food with the new food in small increments over the course of a three week period. It can take 4 to 6 weeks for a pet’s digestive tract to fully adjust to a new diet. If digestive upset occurs, transition more slowly.

About EVO Ancestral Diet Cat Food

Designed by Nature, Perfected by EVO

EVO takes the ancestral diet of wildcats and refines it to fit the needs of today's domestic felines. Nature designed their bodies to hunt and thrive on the animal proteins of their prey. EVO cat food has high levels of protein with poultry or fish as the first ingredient to satisfy a carnivore's needs. To maximize the effect, carbs are limited—and no grains, potatoes or glutens are ever added to any of their recipes. It's the modern version of a healthy ancestral diet to make sure your kitty is getting everything he needs in every meal.

Designed by Nature, Perfected by EVO
The EVO Advantage

The EVO Advantage

In perfecting the modern ancestral diet, EVO follows a specific guideline that promotes a lean, more conditioned body. Your pet gets the EVO advantage of more animal proteins and minimal carbohydrates to help maintain lean muscle mass and a healthy weight. These recipes have the stuff your household tiger loves, like delicious turkey, chicken, duck, chicken liver, herring, salmon and eggs.

More Nutrition in Each Bite

EVO packs more nutrients into each piece of kibble and every bite of wet food. As a result, your cat needs a smaller portion than the average kibble to thrive. This ultra-dense food has a high concentration of protein that's full of amino acids, plus essential vitamins and minerals. With highly digestible ingredients, your kitty can absorb and utilize more nutrients, which helps minimize waste.

An Easy Raw Alternative

An Easy Raw Alternative

Raw diets are known to contain high levels of nutrients. The careful cooking process that EVO uses to make their foods helps preserve these vital trace nutrients, vitamins and minerals. That makes it an easy alternative to feeding raw—one that doesn't involve lengthy preparation and trying to figure out which ingredients to include for a well-balanced diet.

Transparent Sourcing of Premium Ingredients

Careful sourcing and transparency are important parts of the EVO philosophy. Out of the total protein content, 95% of their wet food is animal protein. Their dry food recipes are made of 87% animal ingredients, and 13% fruits and vegetables, all of which have nutritional benefits for your pets.

  • not easy to digest

    By on

    I have two cats: one Maine coon and one Nebelung. We had been using the EVO Turkey formula for several months without any problems. However, it went out of stock on Chewy so we bought this herring and salmon formula instead. Our Nebelung is not able to digest the food properly and leaves mostly wet poos in the litter box which smell to high heaven. It also will get caught in her fur, even if we try to trim it back. We did not have this issue with the turkey formula, which she digested without issue and passed normal, healthy poos. We will be searching for the turkey formula again as soon as we can.

  • No grain, high protein

    By on

    We were warned about grain, including brown rice, by our new vet. Cats are alpha predators and eat meat. This is high protein and, our two picky Siamese just love it. We blend with core, also high protein. They are healthy, don't poop much, and are not overweight. I highly recommend.

  • good for add in

    By on

    I'm sorry but if I don't give my cat a brown rice formula base his poop is too much too handle. Smells like strong fried fish and clams etc. Seafood. I would mix it with something milder. Cat indoor. Was outdoor but california hot too expensive. Change in weather climate indoor now. Outdoor maybe add more.

  • Scent is Strong

    By on

    My cat loves the food and I really like this brand. That being said, I decided to try a new flavor but the scent is extremely strong. It last about 15 minutes so I'd still recommend if you can stand a fishy smell for a little bit.

  • !!!! Rocky & Rose Approved !!!!

    By on

    The jury is in. EVO Grain Free Herring & Salmon Formula Cat & Kitten Food has been Rocky & Rose approved! They love love love it! It is now replacing a brand formerly sold on Chewy but recently removed by the manufacturer (They-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named) ... you know who you are! Just a distant memory now. I probably should have bought the 15lb bag right off, but chose the 2.4lb bag just to be safe. But Evo is certainly a keeper! It's the 15lb bag next time.

  • No wet? oh well, if I must......

    By on

    The headline says it all, but it IS the ONLY dry food he will eat. He even eats Gyzmo's wet DOG food? Gyz must guard his, or, Smokey must be shut out of the kitchen!

  • Hight quality food.

    By on

    My 3 cats love this food since the first day they taste it. They are very picky. I bought for them the salmon variety because they love fish. I am really glad since the food is hight quality and has the smallest amount of carbohidrates in the market. I hightly recommend it. I love ordering it from Chewy because they have the best prices and the packages always arrived quickly.

  • Yes, it's fishy but they like it!

    By on

    I'm giving this a 4 star simply because of the smell. I just got the small bag to mix in with their regular food to see if they would like it as they are very picky. Well, as soon as I opened up the bag and had 5 very interested felines wanting to taste a sample. I will be purchasing this again in the near future.
