Yum, yum, yum! If Toby could talk, that’s what I think he would say about Evermore pet food. Actually, I’m not sure if it should be called pet food, because between the human-grade ingredients, USDA-certified antibiotic and hormone-free meats, flash-frozen way of keeping it fresh and commitment to no byproducts, meat meal, corn, soy, wheat, potatoes or salt, Evermore could easily be eaten by any human.
The Brooklyn-based company formed by Alison Wiener and Hanna Mandelbaum has a very simple theory stated right on their website — “We believe we should feed our dogs the way we should feed ourselves—with REAL food.”
Makes complete sense, right? If I try to avoid over-processed foods with fillers and ingredients I can’t pronounce, then why shouldn’t I do the same for my dog. I treat him just like I do any other member of my family, so why is his nutrition not as important as everyone elses.
I approached checking out this dog food, just like I do food bfor me — flip it over and read the ingredient list. I was shocked (in a good way) to see beef, beef hearts, beef livers, chicken, chicken hearts and chicken livers as the ingredients in addition to the variety of vegetables and herbs. These are premium ingredients that are very healthy for your dog. There was no corn or corn meal even listed. If I weren’t a vegetarian, I would’ve tried it.
The food looks like a tapenade of sorts that you would find along with an appetizer spread, and you can see the fresh vegetables, like the carrots and some greens. The one thing I really liked about Evermore that I think makes it unique is the flash freezing. The food is gently cooked, so it’s not a pure raw food diet for your dog, but it isn’t overly processed either. It seems like a great compromise between the two styles.
I noticed Toby did have to go out a little bit more than usual after eating it, but it seems like it was easier for him to go than it normally is. He didn’t dance around forever and run in circles, instead he walked out the door, went and that was it.
