MEET DR. SUNVOLD
"Hello! This is Dr. Greg Sunvold. Allow me to introduce myself.
My Ph.D. is in Nutritional Sciences where I researched the use of fermentable fibers in dog and cat diets. My entire career has been focused on pet nutrition. During my career, I have researched prebiotics, probiotics and many other nutraceuticals to understand their benefits for pets. As a trained scientist, I look for health benefits found in nutrition-related ingredients that can be incorporated into pet products.
As time went on, I further studied and learned about innovations that could help pets. Many of these innovations can be categorized as “microbiome” related innovations. The microbiome world is amazing and you will find my comments about the microbiome elsewhere on this website. Besides the microbiome, there are many ingredients that can help restore good health to pets. Our products are and will be designed to leverage these ingredients to improve your pet’s health.
My goal is to apply as many of these innovations into products that you can easily use with your pets. Give these products a try and send me feedback on how they work with your pet. Between new scientific innovations and your feedback, we will the most progressive line of pet supplement products possible."
Dr. Sunvold graduated with a Ph.D. in Nutritional Sciences. His thesis research involved dogs and cats being fed different fiber types. During the next 25+ years, Dr. Sunvold would develop a career focused on improving the health of dogs and cats. Through the years, his research interests varied widely from improving gut health to discovering technologies associated with improving and maintaining health weight to developing technologies and diets that would improve the lives of pets with diseases such as diabetes, kidney failure and other issues.
For a time in his career, Dr. Sunvold developed sensory measurements and means to improve the feeding delight of pets. His research led to several innovations that were applied to improve the health of dogs and cats. A central theme of Dr. Sunvold’s research has been into the microbiome. This area of active and fertile research continues to put forth findings that are changing and enhancing the field of nutrition.
Throughout his career, Dr. Sunvold has co-authored several hundred scientific papers documenting his and his collaborators’ findings as well as patent publications disclosing these new innovations. He and his family are home to Millie, their toy goldendoodle, and several cats.
