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. 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; 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.

    Good ingredients - not cat approved

    By Kimber on Oct 20, 2021

    I thought by the ingredient list on this item that it would have to be good. The normal brand I buy has been out of stock for weeks so out of concern I immediately bought 2 cases as other flavors of this brand were also sold out. I have 8 cats and only 1 will even eat this unless I mix it with another 13oz can of another brand. I'm stuck with it now and they will deal but I am definitely concerned about wet cat food right now as our cat just had urinary blockage surgery 4 months ago and he has to have a low ash wet food. I did order other flavors of this brand.....hopefully they go over better.

    Begrudgingly ate first can, won’t touch the rest

    By NanE on Jul 27, 2020

    My cat turned his nose up at this, but ate the first can. Since then has only picked at it. Will have to go to the store and pick up some random food to tie him over until I can order something else. He is not a picky eater normally!

    They don't like it

    By Carol on Aug 20, 2020

    My cats won't eat your food unless they are starving. Won't buy again. Other brands are more acceptable.

    My cats won't eat it

    By Susan on Jan 30, 2020

    I am so disappointed but I have 6 cats and I've tried feeding it to them now for about two weeks and they will have none of it. My dog will but she is a lab and will just about eat anything. I'm afraid it is too high in protein for her or I would just give it to her.

    Cats like it

    By houleboule on Sep 25, 2019 top1000Contributor

    My cats like this food. I made the mistake of ordering the largest cans when I need to use the smaller sizes. My cats are quite picky and won't eat the leftovers if they've been refrigerated, even if they're reheated before serving. Definitely recommend this food, just be sure you get the size that works your best for you.

    Mistakes were made.

    By Lacy on Sep 4, 2019

    I tried to do good by the felines by getting a ~nicer~ brand of cat food. Thought I'd tried this before with success, but I think I got the brand name wrong. This pate is dry. It's damp sand at best. My cats hesitantly ate can one with no gusto. Day 2 they refused and I got them to come around by adding warm water and mushing it. Day 3's can resulted in an overnight food strike.

    not even a little bit

    By kcat on May 10, 2019 top100Contributor

    Evanger has a reputation for being a high quality food so I thought this would be a great purchase. This is gross to be blunt. The can is between half and three quarters full and it looks like someone put a piece of leftover steak in a blender with a bunch of water and blended it (I know this because I have done it lol) No one has come close to tasting it not even the new kitten who eats anything . HUGE disappointment never said this before but really, do not even try.
