At Pet Food Sherpa, our primary goal is to provide pet owners like you with accurate, relevant, and
unbiased information about pet nutrition. As such, we do not accept gifts or incentives as motivation to
include certain products in our reviews.
We do, however, participate in affiliate marketing programs and we partner with select brands to fund
our site. We choose the products we review carefully and review them thoroughly before publishing a
review or accepting any form of payment.
Proceeds from this program and our partners enable us to continue providing high-quality content to
our readers. Read more about how we’re funded here.
