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 8 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 8 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.

  • All my cats like

    By on

    I have 2 older cats that I give a small amount of canned food every morning. For the most part, the one licks all the gravy and walks away, letting the younger ones eat the actual food. The other one will pretty much eat anything and clean his bowl. Joey, the picky one, seems actually like this food and will eat it as opposed to just lick off the gravy.

  • Cats won't touch it

    By on

    I actually meant to get the dog food, but accidentally ordered the cat food. I have two picky cats and they wouldn't even touch it. They both smelled it and walked away. A waste of 20.00. I'll donate it to our local shelter and make sure i am more careful prdering my food next time. I will say my dogs LOVE the dog food in this brand...every flavor. I'll definitely confine ordering the dog food and of course I'll always use Chewy for obvious reasons!!

  • Great value and healthy alternative!

    By on

    My three fur balls have been eating various Evanger's 'Dinner for Cats' for nearly five years. We choose Evanger's based on the nutrient value. We feed them twice a day and do not leave food out. They love it! Unlike other reviews, we never had a problem with them finishing all their food.

  • My cats are okay with it

    By on

    My cats don't hate it & they're not too crazy about it. I guess they're okay with it. It's got a lot of sauce, so that's a plus. And my cats who can't eat anything but Fancy Feast, have an easier time eating this food than other health food. By the way, Fancy Feast has given most of my cats hyperthyroid & kidney issues, because it contains too much sugar and salt and because it's made in equipment that's contaminated with rocket fuel

  • Changed formula

    By on

    I have been buying "Beef it up" for years, two cases at a time every few months. My cat loved it, it was the only canned food she would eat. But something has changed. The lid on the can is different and the catffod itself is darker and dryer. And my cat does not like it. So, I now have to hunt for a new food. WHY DID YOU CHANGE A GOOD PRODUCT?
