I just read a post on another cat forum where someone who seemed to be implying him/herself as knowledgeable (like working for a vet, or being a vet) alleged that at least half of the cats they see with urinary crystals are on Evo or Felidae.  (I don't know if it was wet or dry, but in the context, it seemed that wet food was being talked about.)

I have heard rumors to that effect before about Felidae, but not about Evo.

Anyone know anything about this?

I would like to see something more on this. I feed 5 cats and those are the foods I use along with a couple others like Taste of the Wild, and Weruva. My cats always want something different so I mix foods all the time and have had no issues. A friend has been feeding nothing but Felidae for years and has had no issues with the cats.

I think it is a little strange being both foods are made at different plants and totally different on ingredients.

I read that about EVO canned on another forum.  The post said a group of vets at a conference all said the same thing, they were seeing increasing numbers of cats with crystals that had been eating EVO canned.  That was a few years ago.

I have been doing a little checking on this being that I feed these foods in a rotation. Let me start with my experience on some issues
 A vet conference conversation I would not hold much faith in, here is an example, my Mother in law had a chow that got kidney stones and when he asked what she had changed she told him she had given the dog glucosamine tablets, he told her that must be what it was. Nothing about the food she fed was mentioned,which was Ol'Roy with Pedigree on top, I had another friend with a dog that got kidney stones and when asked by the vet which food they fed he told them Canidae, so the vet wanted to change the dogs diet. When my friend told me that I asked him what treats he gave the dog being that I used Canidae also. Well his dog liked Pupperoni, Waggin train strips, and his junk food was Beniful.
 When I did research on it everything said grain free was good so I will stick with what I feel good with.
