Cats tolerated the first few cans, but wouldn’t touch it afterward. Seems they hate it compared to chicken or beef. Now I have a bunch of food cans I can’t use
Had to find a wet food without chicken or fish for my one cat. NOT easy. This delivers and BOTH cats LOVE it. My other cat will try and get to it over her other good. Spendy but oh well
Reported it to Chewy and they took it very seriously. There were actual bits of what looked like green, blue and red plastic in several cans. Chewy told me to throw the cans out and they would be reporting it to company. Of course, Chewy is so great, they are refunding me for the case but it is very disturbing and I will not buy any Evanger's again.
Evangers products don't disappoint. Cats like this food.
I have a Siamese cat with IBD. Over the course of the years since diagnosed, I have eliminated almost all proteins that he can't eat and have found duck to be the absolute best for him. In trying many brands of duck pate, they have all been found to contain a high amount of bone fragments that he can't digest, making them all inedible for him despite seemingly good ingredients otherwise. It was recommended that I try this brand after the product he had been eating for 2 years was suddenly discontinued and I was desperately looking for a replacement. This is it! It's not just a food he loves. It's a food that makes him thrive and is keeping him happy and healthy. I highly recommend this brand to anyone especially those who have a cat with these issues.
I have a (mostly) siamese kitten who seems to be reacting to chicken (who knew?), fish and peas...and they are in everything! Thank goodness I found this, she loves it and I love the limited clean ingredients.
I have found a food my 16 year old cat can eat without getting sick.
The vet suggested a "unique protein" for our cat. We've also tried this brand in quail, but the cat seems to like the duck better. It looks better than most cat foods - like real food vs some sort of strange smelling stuff. There is a lot of gravy for cats who like gravy. The cans can sometimes be hard to open, so that is a downside. Otherwise we are happy to have this option. Our cat was vomiting often and now keeps her food down.
My cat finishes this duck dinner quickly. The ingredients are high quality and duck is a unique protein which adds valuable diversity to my cat's diet. However, this food is a pâté (paste) with no chunks of duck, which is why I am giving it four stars. I prefer my cat eat food with more texture so she can use her teeth to pull-apart the food forcing her to eat slower.
I first tried Evanger's rabbit/quail. The one cat who really needed to eat it loved it at first but then it was just kind of "meh." Ate it but not always all of it. Then, I tried the duck. She ravenously ate it the first time...and the second time...and the third time...etc. This cat has inflammatory bowl disease and needs more calories, so she needs to eat more during the day than she has in the recent past. She was already on grain-free, gluten-free dry and canned, then canned-only. The vet said she might be reacting to salmon/fish oil that was present in her food (thought salmon oil was a good thing!...but maybe not for her), so I had to research foods that didn't have any fish or fish oil either. Fortunately, there are a lot of products out there now...and I think I've tried almost all of them! She is not usually very picky, but she has not liked all of them. I am so glad she will eat the Evanger's duck cat food reliably! I think it helps that it is very mushy...almost the consistency of Hill's prescription a/d Urgent Care. (The rabbit/quail pate was a lot more solid.) My second cat loves it as well. He eats a mix of (grain-free, etc.) canned and dry but mostly dry. My third cat turns her nose up at it...but to be fair, she pretty much does that to ALL canned food. When she does "eat" canned food, it consists of a couple licks, no more. She won't even lick the duck...but, again, this is pretty common for her. All that said, even though I usually love Chewy, they charge a lot for this product. I can get it at my local natural pet store for 20 cents LESS per can (up to 50 cents less if there's a coupon). That adds up!
