Evermore Dog Food Review

Evermore Dog Food Review

Evermore Pet Food is a women-owned dog food company that started in 2009. It began in Brooklyn and is now bicoastal with one partner in California and the other operating from the home base in New York. Evermore is a hands-on company that operates very transparently, with supplier and product information easily accessible online. Inquiries are addressed quickly, often by partners Hanna or Alison.  

The company produces a single line of 4 gently cooked recipes. Their foods are shipped throughout the US, and there are some retail locations.

Evermore dog food is produced in a USDA-inspected, family-owned copacker facility in California. Evermore is the only pet food produced at the facility; all other foods produced are made for human consumption.

For our Evermore dog food review, we’ll look at the food ingredient quality and safety of the single line of food. Our dog food reviews are based on these criteria.

Evermore Cooked Dog Food Review

Score: 9/10

Package Ingredients For Evermore Beef Recipe: Beef, beef hearts, eggs, organic sweet potatoes, organic carrots, beef livers, organic kale, organic apples, organic dandelion greens, organic blueberries, organic parsley, organic oats, organic barley, fish oil, organic pumpkin seeds, safflower oil, eggshell powder, organic dried kelp, zinc gluconate.

Using our evaluation criteria, Evermore Cooked  is considered a low risk dog food. Here are our concerns:

Ingredient Quality

Overall, there is only one concern when it comes to ingredient quality:

Contains Seed Oil: Some of these recipes contain safflower oil, which is a highly processed and highly inflammatory oil. It’s an inexpensive alternative to higher quality animal fats and oils.

Ingredient Safety

There is only one concern with Evermore Cooked line:

Moderately Processed: This food loses a point for being cooked due to  heat used in processing. Heating foods will cause losses in some active enzymes, vitamins, amino acids and phytonutrients. Minimal or no processing is preferred.


Here are some noteworthy benefits of these foods:

Low Carbohydrates: It’s good to see low carbohydrates in a cooked dog food like this.  

Organic Produce: These recipes use organic produce/grains which means they are non-GMO and crops are not sprayed with pesticide/herbicides.   

No GMO Ingredients: This is a non-GMO verified line, which is good to see. There are limited safety studies on genetically modified and Roundup Ready crops although they are lacking in nutrients compared to non-GMO foods. GMO crops also strip nutrients from soils, require increased pesticide risk and may be involved in bee die-off.

Is Evermore A Good Dog Food? 

Overall, Evermore is a good dog food. Evermore foods have an overall score of 9/10, and the recipes only lose an ingredient safety point for processing, because they’re cooked.

It’s clear that the company is committed to quality. They use certified organic, non-GMO produce.  

Evermore is one of few dog food companies to provide the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids. It’s found in the detailed nutrient profile of each recipe on its website (though not in the guaranteed analysis). This is good information to have as AAFCO allows a very inflammatory level of 30:1.

Finally, Evermore is a thoughtfully produced food with ingredients that contribute higher nutritional value than most dog foods. Although gently cooked, the ingredient quality and safety scores are as high as many premium raw dog foods. 


Evermore has had no dog food recalls.

Evaluation Criteria

We evaluate and score dog foods based on two criteria:

Are the Ingredients High Quality?

Here are some common low quality ingredients or markers we look for:

  • Is there excessive carbohydrate content, which can cause gut imbalances?
  • Does the food contain unnamed proteins, which are low quality?
  • Does the food use cellulose (wood pulp) as a source of fiber instead of real food?
  • Are there excessive vitamins and minerals added in place of real food nutrition?
  • Are there excessive added amino acids or plant proteins instead of expensive meat protein?
  • Does the food contain inflammatory processed seed oils?

How Safe Are the Ingredients?

Many ingredients come from unhealthy, inflammatory sources or are full of pesticides so we look for:

  • How processed is the food?
  • Does the food contain known genetically modified foods?
  • Does the food contain ingredients known to be high in pesticides?
  • Does the food contain natural flavor, which are often MSG or animal digest?
  • Does the food contain rice, which is high in arsenic?

Each food is objectively evaluated by these criteria and a score is assigned using the average of ingredient quality and safety. This is NOT a paid list and there are no affiliate links.
