The Dog Food Advisor is family owned and reader supported. We operate free of influence from the pet food industry.
We do not accept money, gifts, samples or any other incentives in exchange for special consideration in writing our reviews.
However, we do receive a referral fee from online retailers (like Chewy or Amazon) and from sellers of perishable pet food when readers click over to their websites from ours.
This policy helps support the operation of our blog and keeps access to all our content free to the public.
Please be assured it is always our intention to remain objective, impartial and unbiased when performing our evaluations.

As human beings, our thoughts and opinions change from time to time. We consider this a necessary consequence of having an open mind.

About Our Reviews and Advice
The descriptions and analyses expressed in every article on this website represent the views and opinions of the author.
The Dog Food Advisor does not test dog food products.
We rely entirely on the integrity of the information provided by each brand on its FDA-regulated label or its website. As such, the accuracy of every review is dependent upon the data a company chooses to publish.
Although it’s our goal to ensure all the information on this website is correct, we cannot guarantee its completeness or its accuracy; nor can we commit to ensuring all the material is kept up-to-date on a daily basis.
We rely on tips from readers. To report a product change or request an update of any review, please contact us using this form.
Each review is offered in good faith and has been designed to help you make a more informed decision when buying dog food.
However, due to the biological uniqueness of every animal, none of our ratings are intended to suggest feeding a particular product will result in a specific dietary response or health benefit for your pet.
For a better understanding of how we analyze each product, please read our article, “The Problem with Dog Food Reviews“.
Remember, no dog food can possibly be appropriate for every life stage, lifestyle or health condition. So, choose wisely. And when in doubt, consult a qualified veterinary professional for help.
