The Dog Food Advisor is a public service blog published to help you make a more informed decision when shopping for dog food.
Welcome! My name is Mike Sagman. And as the editor and creator of this website, I believe it’s important for you to know a little about my background.
I’m a graduate of the Medical College of Virginia with a doctoral degree in dental surgery.
My college curriculum included a major in chemistry and a minor in biology.
Yet none of my education or my more than 30 years practicing dental medicine should be considered a qualification for publishing The Dog Food Advisor.
However, after researching and posting over 800 dog food reviews representing some 3,500 commercial products, I’m considered an authority on reading and interpreting pet food labels.
The Dog Food Advisor’s approach to evaluating dog food is based upon one important principle…
No dog food product can ever be magically better than the ingredients that were used to make it
That’s why it’s so important for you to know what’s actually in your dog’s food — before you buy it. And the only reliable way I know to do that is to carefully examine the label.
The many articles you’ll find here are the direct result of information I’ve personally aggregated from readily available public sources…
Books, journals, and published research materials at the United States National Institute of Health PubMed medical libraries.
And of course, from dog food company resources, too.
All the reviews on this website represent many thousands of hours of my own hard work — which I do whenever I’m not taking care of my human patients.
