Our Pet Nutrition Philosophy
In 2004, EVO was introduced as the first grain free kibbled pet food. More like what our pets would have eaten in the wild, EVO was the first pet food to combine the advantages of grain free food with the benefits of protein rich nutrition to feed the carnivores in our pets. EVO’s nutritional philosophy is rooted in quality:
- Only High-Quality Dog and Cat Food Ingredients
EVO uses only high-quality, natural ingredients to create foods that are denser and richer in essential nutrients. This means pets get more nutrition from less food, with calories and fats in each formula balanced to fit their specific needs.
- Whole Pet Food Ingredients That Are Nutrient–Rich
Mother Nature made the grain in its whole state. As such, it includes nutritious protein, fats, carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins and minerals. Other pet food companies use fractionated grains, which do not include this balance of natural nutrition.
- Highly Controlled Cooking Methods and Quality Checks to Preserve Natural Levels of Nutrients
EVO products are subjected to well over 100 defined quality control checks throughout the manufacturing process. These structured and rigorous checks ensure the highest quality and safest pet food on the market. Multiple tests must be passed and specifications must be met for all raw materials and at many key control points during the manufacturing process before any food, treat or supplement makes it out of the manufacturing facility and on to retailers’ shelves.
- No Artificial Preservatives, Colors or Additives
EVO will not add anything to the food unless it is nutritious and healthful for a cat or dog. All our foods are free from chemical additives of any kind, including preservatives such as ethoxyquin and BHA/BHT, which are frequently found in pet foods but are banned from human use in many countries.
- Pet Food Ingredients That Provide the Optimum Nutritional Profile for Skin and Coat
Getting a good skin and coat is no big secret. It’s just very expensive to do. You have to use more meat, higher quality sources of fats and oils, and high levels of vitamins and other nutrients. EVO has a large investment in quality - we’ve made the commitment. Other dog food and cat food companies try to take shortcuts by using vegetable protein fillers and cheaper sources of fats.
- Extensive Testing and Monitoring to Assure Optimal Health and Longevity of Pets
EVO will stay on the leading edge of pet health care. As new information is developed, EVO will adjust formulas to ensure that our diets continue to be among the healthiest in the world!
