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 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.

  • Not what I thought

    By on

    My cats loved the beef tips, but then the formula changed, and a lot of water was added. I changed to the sardines, and it too, had mostly water and some fish. I've changed to another brand. The cats ate it, but it wasn't enough of a meal for the price.

    Nothing even begins to resemble Evanger's sardines. It is as close to freshly caught as a canned product can be. There are no fillers, just sardines in broth. It is an excellent source of protein via a fish-based product. It has whole sardines, providing all the nutrients of all organs. It is hard to avoid tuna-based cat foods. Manufacturers use the taste appeal of tuna to hide a lack of quality. With sardines, what you see is exactly what you get. It is an excellent food source without fillers, additives and stabilizers.

  • Cats love it

    By on

    I was looking for a canned cat food that was healthy and good for the cats (no by-product, no grain, etc) and this was my second choice. My first choice (TikiCat) turned out to be tiny cans not worth the money, but the three cats seemed to love the fish. So I looked for another brand in larger cans and found Evangers. They come about 3 to a can but fall apart easily in the sauce/water in the can by the time it gets to you. At first, one cat wasn't so crazy about the raw sardine but the next day he accepted it after seeing the other two demolish theirs and his. Cats seem to be happier on Evangers than on their previous bad-for-them-but-cheaper-food (9Lives).

  • Mine loved them!

    By on

    My cats all loved them from the seniors down to the youngsters. I let my husband feed this to them for I do not care for the smell or looks of sardines. He said they resemble the kind in the tin which are sold for people. We add it into their regular diet as a sort of treat.

  • cats didn't like it...however

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I will either donate to a local shelter or feed to my outside ferals...nothing goes to waste! Not sure why they don't like it...it has a lot of liquid and they usually prefer their canned food that way...some things are hits, and some are misses...seems the better the food is for them, the less they like it.

    These are big pieces of sardines which I smoosh up with a fork to blend in with all the juices that are in the can. 3 out of 4 kitties seem to enjoy - I'm not sure if its the juice or the fish- but I have not had any complaints! I am used to Tiki sardines, which they enjoy, but is in a gel. Not sure which they prefer, but I love giving them variety, and they seemed pleased with Evangers. I have tried Evangers food before and it doesn't go over well with my kitties. This is the first one they showed some enthusiasm for.

  • My cats love American food

    By on

    My cats love sardines, so I was delighted to find an American-made product for them. They like the texture of the whole sardines and the broth, and I add a bit of dry food to it for crunch.

  • Excellent product

    By on

    When I first opened the can, I wasn't sure what to think. The sardines were whole and quite large. I feed this to the Feral cats in my community who actually have become a bit fussy about what they eat believe it or not! This is their all-time favorite! I chop up the sardines in the can and then put them in their bowls and they love it. I also like that they get liquids with their food, very important for the Ferals (aka Community Cats), especially in the winter when their water freezes quickly. Outstanding product. If your cat loves fish, you can't go wrong.

    So far the two cats love it. Been giving it to them every three days. I have tried just sardines before without a taker so it must be the delicious gravy they put over it. Talked to Evangers and they seem very helpful and caring about their products. Also I found out that the 5.5 oz size cans are less likely to have BPA on the inside of the can. I didn't know about I Love You Cat food which is in a small can There seems to be some coating on theirs and I couldn't find out what it is.
