i do.

i have been feeding mugsy evo for a few months now. i like it because he eats it, plain & simple. he also likes little ceaser but i think the evo is a better food. just an opinion as i'm no expert. it's expensive per can - we are talking about the wet food? - but he gets about 2.5 meals out of one can, so it's really not so expensive. his stomach seems to like it also, no vomiting or loose poops.

greetings from mugsy & me

I'd be interested to hear some feedback too. I think Amy (Posh's Mom) feeds Evo Small Bites Dry Food and it looks like a very good product. Pablo turns one when we get back from Germany and I wanted to get him started on that (the dry that is).

Well you all know how intense I get about the boys food. I do a ton of research-- I think anything from Nutura (the makers of EVO, Innova, California Naturals to name a few) is one of the best bets out there. They have been around long enough and have never been in any of the recalls-- their food is made in the USA. and they were the first to do the high protein- grain free kibble. I think, some dogs are better on high protein and some aren't. It is a trial and error.

For Instance, Jas did great on the very simple Cal Nat lamb and rice, but Cash did not and never firmed up his stool even after 3 wks on it (no going slow, they picked it out) Cash did great on the Evo/but Jas needs more Carbs-- So now (at least for now) I don't fight it anymore--- they primarily get the raw medallions (cooked) cash does great on straight medallion and Jas needs some potato or rice added and they both get some greenbeans as well.

So, Evo is a terrific food whether Djanjo and Pablo do well in on it only time will tell.

I tried to put Tori on it ( the kibble) but, she wouldn't eat it The stinker picked it out and left it on the floor We tried the small bites and the red meat. It was a no-go for us. I do think it's a great food, though.

We were feeding EVO. I think Dusty's coat was better on it than on what we are using now. I think she's gained some weight since we switched also. I wouldn't have a problem going back to EVO. We switched due to allergy concerns, but I am not sure Dusty's tear staining is any better at this point.

I feed EVO small bites (chicken/turkey) and really like it. One it's grain free and secondly, I love the high protein. It's very high calorie, so you may want to mix it with something else like Innova or dilute with a bit of canned food. I've given to both a young dog and a very old senior and I've never seen better health on my senior.

I had been feeding EVO for over 2 years and loved it. It was great on my dogs coats, their poop was less and firm, not hard. They all did very well on it. I am one that likes to switch kibble every few years, as I know I would get bored with eating the same thing all the time. <grin> I do add other things to my dogs kibble though too.

I am now feeding Orijen Fish, which is also grain free and they all love it and switched to it nicely.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm very excited that there actually IS an affordable great food out there that is fairly easily accessible for us.
