*Evolve Maintenance Formula With Chicken Natural Cat Food was selected as the recipe for this ingredient list
We believe that although Evolve Cat Food does contain a moderate level of carbohydrates, it still has the makings of a highly nutritious and tasty cat food. The food comes in three formulas, Kitten, Cat, and Senior Cat. Each formula lists chicken and chicken meal as the first two ingredients, meaning it is high in beneficial proteins. The formulas also include live active enzymes for added nutrition, and a slew of healthy ingredients like vegetables, flaxseed meal, dried kelp, and fruits. That being said, the blends also include carbohydrates such as rice, brewer’s rice, and bran. Pet owners that want to avoid feeding their cats carbohydrates may want to think carefully about this brand. It should be noted that the Kitten brand formula was recalled in 2007 due to suspected contamination. This may be a good thing though, as it has prompted the company to make extra efforts to ensure their food is safe and contaminant-free.
People just cannot seem to make up their minds when it comes to Evolve Cat Food. Some cat owners say that their cats love this food, even the super finicky cats that normally shy away from commercial brands. Many claim that their cat’s health problems have cleared up after switching to this food. Cats that previously suffered vomiting, diarrhea, and urinary tract infections seem to be on the road to recovery. In addition, some owners claim that their pets eat less and drink less when consuming Evolve Cat Food, which is a sign of a healthier and more nutritious blend. However, others say that this brand has caused their pets to have runny stool. Some extrapolate that the reason for the runny stool is that their cats have a hard time absorbing the high protein and nutrient levels in the food. Overall, cat owners seem to be split 50/50 on this brand of food.
The company that makes Evolve cat food markets it as being “made from holistic type ingredients including real lamb and chicken”. However, Evolve pet food was involved in the 2007 pet food recalls, which made some cat owners question its quality.
The company who makes Evolve cat food is called Triumph Pet Industries. Triumph Pet Industries produces several brands, including Evolve pet food, Hi-Tor Veterinary Select and Triumph brand pet food. Triumph Pet Industries was founded over 60 years ago, though the Evolve line of pet food wasn’t in their inventory until 2007.
In the pet food recalls of 2007, Evolve did have one formula that was listed as being recalled. The Evolve dry kitten formula was recalled, which was in a 3lb, flexible foil bag. In order to make sure that your cat’s food is safe, it’s always highly recommended that you check the FDA’s pet food recall website. This will help you to stay updated on the latest pet food recall information.
The Evolve line of cat food formulas seems to always have a meat as their first ingredient. In some formulas, the first two ingredients are meat-based. However, the Evolve formulas are fairly heavy in carbohydrates, with simple carbohydrates dominating the top of the ingredients list. There is also fish meal in Evolve cat food, though it’s unclear if the fish meal contains the possibly harmful component ethoxyquin. Evolve cat food does contain many fruits, vegetables and vitamin supplements.
Evolve does not contain ingredients that normally gives cat an allergic reaction. If your cat has a specific allergy, you should always read the ingredients of any cat food formula.
