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.

    Evanger's whole sardines smell really great (if you like sardines) and look chunky and disgusting. My dog loves them, unequivocally! And she can be a picky eater...

    I add it as a topper to the meals of my Labradors. I like to add some variety to their bowls via canned and other methods. This is one of our new favorites. The dogs on a diet get some of the fishy juice, the others get some of the fish.

  • Picky Eater Lifesaver

    My big dog started getting picky about her dry food, and this has been perfect to add in with her dry food to make it extra delicious. One can lasts me 3-4 meals because there's a lot of juice and fish chunks that are easy to mix in, even when it's cold from the fridge. Also, the fish oil is great for her coat! Now she gobbles up her food!

    The can is mostly juice. Some peas and carrots in a broth with a big chunk of fish. I like to give my animals a variety of different high protein, no grain foods and this fit the bill. However, my Shepard snubbed it but my hound really liked it.

  • Caned Sardines in the store are cheaper!

    By on

    I dont get it. Why would someone buy this when you could go to the store and get sardines packed in olive oil. I drain and rinse the sardines out and then add half a can to the side of my dogs food. Its cheaper and I trust it more. I also get them Mackeral from the can packed in water. Always rinse them off to take the salt out or too much oil like the sardines have.

  • Mostly well liked.

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    Three of our dogs loved this sardine meal but the fussy one wouldn't touch it. It is very economical in that there's a good gravy and a nicely packed bunch of sardines, all easy to serve and especially to share among the group to mix with dry food.

  • dog fish

    By on

    I am somewhat conflicted about the quality of this product because less than half the can is fish,the rest is juice. For the money you can get a can of mackerel at the grocery that gives you more fish. That said, I do think it is a good alternative to a meat based diet, and the juice is apparently tasty and my Irish Wolfhounds like it.

  • Good source of real essential fatty acid.

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    Hello this is exactly what it describes. Sardines are a fish and not tuna. Very healthy alternative for dogs and yes fish does smell like fish, but they love it. Not much different from buying sardines in the grocery aisle of supermarket. But Evanger's bigger can size here does help.

  • This is a good wholesome canned food

    We have a multiple dog household. Yorkies and maltese and they can be very picky eaters. I tried this out of curiosity.....whole fish really? It it whole fish stew . I add this to their kibble at dinner time and they lick their plates clean. It smells like fish, because it is fish! A big hit at our house.
