Welcome to Your Paws!

Your Paws is the one-stop destination for owners of happy, healthy pets.

As a pet owner you deserve trustworthy and unbiased assessment of food and accessories, and science-backed tools to help you make the right decisions for your pets. That’s exactly what I aim to provide.

Crucially, Your Paws is 100% independently owned and operated. Unlike many other pet websites, this site is not affiliated with any pet food manufacturer or other company. Every article you find on this site is editorially impartial - you’ll notice most articles are written or checked by veterinarians. This is part of our commitment to provide only evidence-based, scientific reviews of pet food and products. To learn more about how we operate, please review our affiliate disclaimer and editorial policy.
