About Dr. Tim's Dog Food

Premium All-Natural Pet Foods and Treats

Dr. Tim's offers honest, nutritionally sound kibble, wet foods, dietary supplements and freeze-dried treats designed for every life stage. The high-quality ingredients include low-ash protein along with the right blend of carbohydrates, fats and fibers to allow your pet to lead a healthy life.

Foods Made to Match Your Pet

When shopping for Dr. Tim's pet foods, you'll notice the labeling indicates an activity level. That's because they're made to complement your pet's lifestyle, with ideal ratios of protein, fat, carbohydrates and fibers to help her thrive. You'll find recipes that are specially formulated for active pets, low-key pets, extreme athletes and those in need of weight management.


This food is designed for the sporting dog that's active more days than not—dogs who hunt or jog every day, herding dogs, police dogs and the like. It's made for maximum digestion, an important consideration for these dogs that's often overlooked. Protein types and levels, fat types and levels, and fiber sources are formulated to maximize performance and recovery.


This is a diet intended for the dog who lives a normal lifestyle—sleeping on the couch, running around the backyard or going on car rides, walks or hikes and basically just living the good life. The only regular exercise she might get is tail wagging when she sees you at the end of the day, or some loving nose nudges


This food is for dogs who are serious about working nearly every day for long periods of time, such as sled dogs and dogs who hunt most days of the season. It's extremely high in fat, high in protein and low in carbs, with the highest levels of essential omega-3 fatty acids and loads of antioxidants. Performance, endurance and recovery are all enhanced.


This diet is intended for the dog who has put on some extra weight. High protein allows your overweight dog to be more active, and moderate fat allows her to feel satiated so she doesn't beg—an essential part of the equation. The omega-3 and antioxidant profiles help reduce the inflammatory stress that's prevalent in an overweight dog, too

Treats That Deliver

Dr. Tim's freeze-dried treats are formulated for both cats and dogs—perfect for multipet households. They're made from 100% real, USDA-inspected meats from Wisconsin. And since they're freeze-dried, you can give your pet all the nutrition and flavor of raw meat without any of the mess or inconvenience.

Top It Off With Nutrition

Dr. Tim's Flavor Booster is made of 100% real, USDA-inspected beef liver powder from Wisconsin that is freeze-dried to maintain more nutrients. It's perfect for use as a food topper to encourage pets to eat and enjoy their meals, which makes it a great choice for finicky dogs or those who are ill or tired of the same formula.

About Dr. Tim's

As a veterinarian and accomplished musher, Dr. Tim Hunt understood his dogs' need for a food that promotes stamina, endurance and performance through proper digestion. Armed with a cement mixer, a cache of ideas, and an aversion for other diets on the market, Dr. Tim took to his Michigan garage on a mission to formulate a food that replicated a natural, wild diet for his Alaskan Huskies. Today, Dr. Tim's focus has since expanded to bring an honest, nutritionally sound food—sourced only from North America's highest quality ingredients—to every dog.

Really getting expensive.

A 42.7% increase in two years. At some point, it has to stop. No complaints about the food but other than the price increase.

Great food but…

The cost used to be around $60 for a 24 lb bag now its $108. I can’t afford to feed it anymore. I liked the fact that I can feed my 5 y/o and my almost 11 y/o the same dog food and they both benefit. My one dog does really good on it with his sensitive tummy but will be looking for something else unfortunately as the price over $100 is no longer affordable :(

Success after a long search

Our adopted pup arrived in June with a bag of kibble she had been eating while with her foster family. It was a 50 50 combo that she would eat but not with much enthusiasm. I looked each up on the dog food advisor website and they both had marginal recommendations. We began adding a topper of Farmers Dog to entice her as I slowly switched her to a version of Taste of the Wild, and then to Wellness, trying to find a quality kibble she would actually enjoy. She is an athletic dog and I was getting concerned about keeping up her weight so I scoured the reviews again and decided to try Dr. Tims. We wanted a grain inclusive diet and it was a success from the get go. We still top with fresh food in the morning but she is also happy to eat it by itself which means we can free feed. A resounding success and a happy dog.

Great product

It was recommended by a friend to try Dr. Timothy dog food for my elder dog. She stopped getting sick and started acting like a puppy on her good days. She is 17 years old a little blind and a good companion. It is wonderful to find a product that helps keep our fur babies healthy and living longer.

Used to be Good

The food seems to be descent, I have 2 that will eat just about anything, and one fairly picky eater who will eat it most of the time. They’ve been on it for quite some time, but Dr. Tim’s has raised their prices 30% in a little over a year. I know inflation has been high, but 30%!? This bag is no longer affordable, disappointing.

Crazy price increase

This is good food but they have priced their way out of business. Too bad.

Went up again! Ridiculous!

Paid like $50/bag for 40lb like 5 years ago and was only like $70/bag a year ago now it’s over $100/Bag.

Not working for my dogs

My dogs have been on this food for 16 days now. They love the taste, however, their stools are very soft and mustard color, nightmare to pick up and for the first time ever, they are starting to scratch occasionally. Something in this food does not agree with them. They have not gotten anything new except this food and they were transitioned to it slowly. I even spent $80 to have their stools checked at vet to make sure their wasn't something else going on, as this food got such great reviews, but results came back negative. Emailed Dr. Tim's and was told to feed them less. They are 74 lb. dogs not quite 3 years old and not overweight at all, very healthy and active. Feeding them less did not help. Still horrible soft stools. I was told by Dr. Tim's that grain free is not bad for dogs, that vets have it wrong, so I should consider switching to that. Made my vet mad when I told him that as he has seen what grain free foods have done to dogs. I have owned 14 dogs in my lifetime, all different breeds, mostly big but some small too, and they always ate food with healthy grains and lived to ripe old age, I am not going to change now, but will be changing from this food to another brand.
