When the Lapdogs were given the opportunity to try some of Evanger's dog food and treats, I jumped at the chance. After all, their reputation precedes them...

"Since 1935, Evanger's Dog & Cat Food Company, Inc. has been the finest natural pet food company in the United States. Our founder, Fred Evanger, bred, exhibited, and championed his Great Danes in international kennel clubs. He was a fervent believer that his dogs' health and the health of their offspring were dependent on wholesome, nutritious food, and strongly advocated that this was the key to his success in the show ring. Mr. Evanger built a canning factory at his kennels so that he could make a quality pet food, free of harmful additives or preservatives;, that was superior enough for his champions. Over 80 years later, we know that Fred Evanger was a man ahead of his time." - Evanger's website
While the Lapdogs wanted to get their paws on the treats first - after all every little bag that makes even the slightest crinkly noise must be full of T-R-E-A-T-S for them - I was more anxious to pop open one of the canned meals.
We use canned food as a mix-in at dinner time and I am always looking for new options to add to our rotation. Evanger's not only fit right in, they surpassed my expectations!
Evanger's canned meals are free of wheat, corn and soy, as well as artificial ingredients, preservatives and by-products. But the thing that really sets them apart from the rest is their innovative manufacturing process.
In 2003, Evanger's became the first pet food company to create a food that was packed by hand instead of machine. And, all of Evanger's cans are packed with raw ingredients in their own natural juices. The meals are then cooked entirely inside the sealed can to lock in the nutrients and flavors.
We received the Slow Cooked Chicken Stew, as well as four flavors from the Whole Meat Chunks in Gravy line: Braised Beef Chunks, Hunk of Beef, Whole Chicken Thighs, and Roasted Whole Chicken Drummets. I wish I could show you how much the Lapdogs loved these tasty, home-cooked looking meals through photos, but they were gobbling them up so fast, everything was a blur!
In addition to the canned meals, we received some of the Grain Free Oven Baked Jerky in three drool-worthy flavors: Natural Venison, Natural Chicken and Natural Buffalo.
These semi-moist Jerky Treats can be fed as a snack, between meals, or used during training (they can easily be broken into smaller pieces). Real meat is the number one ingredient, and there are no artificial colors or flavors. At just 6 calories per treat, you won't feel guilty giving an extra treat - or two - to your pack!
