Merlin is a 13yr old persian who has struggled with IBS since Jan 2020. He has had vet visits too numerous to count. I can honestly say that he has tried every med, treatment, and prescription and regular diet available. Absolutely nothing helped him. I pretty much accepted that I needed to just cover my furniture in plastic and clean up after him 24/7. He literally had uncontrolled liquid stools. I debated about putting him down but i just couldn't do it because despite his IBS, he was bright-eyed and happy! I read on a forum about feeding raw foods like rabbit and duck to cats with IBS. I searched online and found Evangers premium rabbit and quail wet food. Let me tell you that I'm not someone who writes reviews often but I simply must tell people about my experience with this food. My Merlin has been eating the rabbit/qual for 14 days and his stools are 80% better!!! I can't begin to express my shock. I am actually laying my rugs down again after having them off the floor for 3yrs! I am just so stunned and beyond thrilled that his liquid stools are gone. I was never able to eliminate the ingredient(s) that triggered his IBS. All I know is Evangers alone saved his life and I am forever grateful!
Our vet recommended we switch to novel proteins as our adopted cat has food allergies. She would not touch this food - would leave it overnight without a bite. We now have a case of this. We are considering making out own gravy to pour over it so that she might eat it.
Oatmeal is a cat who needs to change food atom by atom. It takes months to get her to accept a new food. But not this one. I put this down and added her favorite topper the first two times and now she eats it freely. I have never seen her take to a food so quickly. I love the ingredients and am happy my cats like it too!
I really wanted my three kitty girls to love this good. Evangers makes good high quality food consistently and I've had (mostly) success with many of their wet and dry foods for both cats and dogs. Unfortunately my cats won't eat it. I did the recommended slow mix in introduction and have tried a variety of ways to feed it -straight out of the can, blended w a little water, blended w more water, with tasty crushed treat topper and no luck. I have one kitty that will take a couple bites from a freshly opened can but won't touch it once it's sat for more than a couple min or if it's the second half of the can that's been refrigerated. Such a bummer! I was so hopeful they would love it since it's such a good product.
This is really too bad, as one of my cats isn't supposed to eat chicken, and there are so few choices that aren't mixed w chicken. They see to not like Evangers products, in general
I have 2 cats. My finicky cat loves it, and that’s a bit statement. My easy going cat walks away- that baffles me. Reading the label, i think it’s a good quality product. I will repurchase and figure out a way to get them both to love it.
Reviews from my four-legged household members are mixed on this formula. They tolerate it but they don’t love it, but I like the idea of offering this as part of their rotating proteins. Having said that I’m disappointed with the amount of pure liquid in these cans. Nearly 20%, over 1 oz. per can, is just water. The total net weight is usually pretty close to what is advertised but it’s misleading. Evanger’s should be advertised as a soupy product.
I can not express how thrilled I am with this food. My one cat (out of 6) has colitis. So he's was put on HP dry and SO wet. One SO wet food isn't wet and two both are incredibly expensive. All of my cats were eating it- but he still had bloody stool. So I did a little googling and found that sensitive tummies (i.e. colitis and ibd) do better with duck, quail, and turkey and that they can be reacting to chicken proteins. As soon as I switched to evanger's, the bloody diarrhea stopped... its be 6 years and I finally found the solution. I also add a little pumpkin as well to it, since it will help firm up the stool but this is it! There is no chicken whatsoever in this formula. I have never been so happy to scoop and look at cat poo in my entire life!!!!
The first batch she was ok with. This one, she would rather eat my house plants and puke all day. Oh and toilet paper. Yikes!
It seems like a different consistency of this food, although it's the same food, the same label of food, at least. The darker one also has white chunks in it. Should I be concerned? I know my cat responds much better to the actual solid pate on the right.. It's the only food that doesn't upset his stomach, when it's in the format of the right side. It's so bizarre...
