EVO Cat Food

on Thursday, February 24, 2011
EVO is the grain-free line of pet food formulas produced by Natura Pet Products. Natura Pet Products is well-known for their many pet food formulas, including organic diets, hypoallergenic diets and natural pet diets. EVO is currently their only line of pet food formulas that is 100% grain free. EVO is marketed by Natura Pet Products with the phrase “The Ancestral Diet Meets Modern Nutrition”.

Types of Formulas

Currently there are two different types of formulations of EVO cat food - dry and canned. EVO also offers three different types of cat treats, each of which has a different flavor. EVO's canned formulas are often labeled with a meat percentage. For example, the canned venison EVO cat food formula is called “95% Venison”.

Sources of Protein

EVO has several different types of formulas, each of which uses a different combination of animal proteins. However, upon inspecting EVO's formulas, there are always two whole meats and two meat meals included in the first five ingredients. This means that the formulas are exceptionally high in meat-based proteins, which is a positive factor as far as nutritional content.

Sources of Carbohydrates

Since EVO is a completely grain free formula, it lacks many of the common grains which are often seen in some pet food formulas. However, it still does contain carbohydrates. EVO's main source of carbohydrates is peas, which are often among the first five ingredients. There are also some carbohydrates that come from ingredients such as apples, carrots and other fruits or vegetables.

Other Ingredients

EVO cat food formulas contain eggs, which act as an alternate source of protein. Fruits such as cranberries and apples are also present. EVO cat food does contain dairy in the form of cottage cheese, which is further down the ingredients list than most other ingredients. EVO cat food also contains active cultures, which help to improve digestion.

What do Other Cat Owners Say?

EVO cat food is still one of the favorite grain-free cat food formulas for many cat owners. Many cat owners like the fact that it contains a high percentage of meats, and does not contain any preservatives. Combined with it being free of simple white carbohydrates, it can be said to be a nutritious grain-free cat food that will help benefit the health of most domestic cats.
