Evanger's Classic Senior & Weight Management Dinner For Dogs is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for the maintenance of adult dogs.

Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Evanger's Classic Senior & Weight Management Dinner For Dogs with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is chicken. Although chicken is an excellent protein source, raw chicken contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of chicken is dramatically reduced. Therefore, it's important to ensure that other meat sources are included within the first few ingredients to ensure the product derives most of its protein from meat.

The second ingredient is chicken broth. Chicken broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, chicken broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.

The third ingredient is brown rice. Brown rice is naturally rich in fiber and various minerals including manganese, phosphorus, and magnesium. Relative to other grains, brown rice is easy to digest.

The fourth ingredient is guar gum. Guar gum (or guaran) is obtained from guar beans which have been dehusked, milled and screened. It's commonly used in wet food products as a thickening agent and provides a notable amount of dietary fiber.

The fifth ingredient is dried kelp, which is a nutritionally dense seaweed. Kelp is naturally rich in a multitude of vitamins and minerals.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Evanger's Classic Senior & Weight Management Dinner For Dogs are not as important as the first five ingredients.

However, collectively they still have a significant impact on the overall quality of the product. Therefore, we'll continue discussing the remaining ingredients in this Evanger's recipe.

Next we have vitamin E supplement. Vitamin E is an essential vitamin required by dogs.

The next ingredient is niacin supplement. Niacin is also known as vitamin B3. It's an essential vitamin that is critical for the metabolism of nutrients and the well-being of the central nervous and GI systems.

Then we have l-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate, which is a feed-grade vitamin C supplement.

The remaining ingredients in this Evanger's Classic recipe are unlikely to affect the overall rating of the product.

Our analysis of the ingredients show that this product derives a considerable amount of protein from non-meat ingredients. This is an undesirable property because plant based protein often lacks many of the necessary amino acids required by dogs. This property is typically found in lower quality products.

Final Thoughts

In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.

The official PawDiet rating for Evanger's Classic Senior & Weight Management Dinner For Dogs is 3.0 out of 5.
