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.

Anal Gland Help

I started my dog on this food because it is advertised to address anal gland issue. I’ve tried several different products because she had an anal gland rupture a few months ago. I can definitely see a firmer, bulkier stool as a result of feeding Dr Tim’s. She readily devours the food. I’m now offering it as one of the three meals she is fed daily. It seems to be beneficial.

For dogs with anal gland issues

Switched to this dog food to help combat my dogs anal gland problem. He is a 75 lb coon hound, 2 yrs, who has frequent issues of his anal gland leaking disgusting fluid, always when he is relaxing on the couch being the goodest boy. This problem occurred on at least a weekly basis, and caused him to be unable to enjoy the couch (where he gets the most attention and peace laying down) on a frequent basis due to a problem he can't control. It would take us so much time just to clean off the cushions.. it caused so much stress for myself and my partner, as his high energy is enough to deal with, so its really important to us he can relax and not feel punished when hes being good. He would get embarrassed every time, and have this shameful look on his lil face. He didn't understand:( After hearing this dog food helped others, I've been feeding my dog this food for the last month. He hasn't had anal gland issues for the most part since changing to this food, except for one time, and I believe this was due to a neighbor feeding him a bunch of chicken without permission (high protein/fat intake is linked to anal gland issues in dogs). So far, I have faith in this food and will continue to purchase unless I start to notice a pattern of his glands still acting up without any other changes in diet which can be directly related to the food.

The Only Dry Dog Food My Dogs Will Eat Dry

My dogs (a 55 lber and 6 lber) both love Dr. Tim's dry food. It is a special meal for them, usually getting it 1 -2 times a week. It is the only dry dog food they gobble up dry. It satisfies them and doesn't cause excessive thirst or digestive issues. Love it!

Anal Gland Saver

I came to this food in search of an answer for my miniature schnauzer's anal gland issues. Lo, and behold, Dr. Tim's answered my call. Before switching, Sadie would begin licking her bottom around the 2 month point. Now, she hasn't done this in 4 months. The vet confirmed that they were hardly full at her last appointment. I am pleased with how glossy her coat is and Sadie loves the taste as well! The price point is very reasonable for this high quality food.

Didn't Like

I took a piece and put it in front of my dog to see if he would eat it. He sniffed it a few times, and then walked away.

did not work for my pups

Both dogs started liking their paws raw and my pitty has had constant yeast infections until I stopped giving them this food.

Highly recommended

My dog began having anal gland problems and excessive shedding after being fed the same food since I’ve had her. I’ve used this brand for years with no problems and happy dogs. I researched the dog food advisor and decided to try Dr Tim’s grain free kinesis formula dry dog food. She gobbled it up immediately! After only one day her swelling went down and no anal gland secretion! Day two her coat is soft and smooth! So grateful! I will be a life long customer! Please don’t change your formula!

Only thing that helped stinky anal glands!

Our 4 year old German Shorthaired Pointer has suffered (and made us suffer) with HORRIBLE anal gland problems since she was a puppy. I had to take her to the vet at least once a month to have them expressed, and eventually the vet taught me to do it on my own because it was getting so costly and time consuming! (and it was SO GROSS) We've always fed her high quality food and I thought we were providing her with the best. But it turns out it was likely way too high in protein for her. She's actually a fairly lazy dog considering her breed! I did extensive research on what could help and we tried everything. Literally, EVERYTHING. I found an article about Dr. Tim's grain free being a life saver for a lot of pups with the same issue. She has been eating Dr. Tim's since June and *knock on all the wood* we have yet to have a stink bomb go off since!
