Evanger's - Real People Food For Pets! #Evangers

Disclosure: Evanger's sent canned dog food and treats to Lapdog Creations, free of charge for review purposes. I was not compensated for this review and all opinions expressed are my own.

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...
  • Voted Editor's Choice by Pet Product News International in 2014 & 2015
  • A Family Business Celebrating Their 80th Anniversary
  • Preferred Choice of Top Handlers, Breeders & Enthusiasts

Plus, their tagline - "Real People Food For Pets!" - certainly caught my eye, as did "Fresh Local Daily!"

All Evanger's foods are made with human-grade, highly palatable ingredients of which 90% are sourced within 50 miles of their kitchens. 
"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 Evanger family no longer owns the company, it does remain a family-owned and operated business thanks to the Sher family who purchased it in 2003.  Their expanded food line is still manufactured on the original site, in the same tradition of uncompromising quality.

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.

The real meat packed into every Evanger's canned meal is amazing!  - #Evangers #DogFood #DogTreats #LapdogCreations ©LapdogCreations

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!

My boys eat Evanger's duck and sweet potato mixed into their kibble every night. We love it. I recently bought their bacon food as a special treat for the girls. Needless to say, there were no complaints. I feel safe and confident feeding Evanger's.

I do like the tagline "People Food For Pets!" So glad the Lapdogs taste tested and approved. It must be fun for them to get variety in their diets.

Thanks for popping on to our blog and will look into these although I still do prefer cooking for her because of her lousy allergies :)

I had not heard of this brand before, thanks for your review. I love that the ingredients are sourced from the USA. I think my dogs would love the grain free treats!

I think I have seen this brand before. Henry and Reese believe they SHOULD eat what we eat (my husband more so as he eats meat).

I am always looking for good canned food for Gracie's kong. I might have to try this out!

Evanger's is a quality food. We used some as a supplement to dry food when the dogs were pups and we were trying to keep weight on them. :)

Looks good! Not heard much about Evangers, maybe we should check it out.

Just to let you know they did have a voluntary recall on one type of their beef canned food in the last week (February 2017). I included 5 lot numbers and by the sounds of it some risky chemicals as well.
