Premium All-Natural Pet Foods and Treats

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.


ACTIVE: 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.

Casual Lifestyle

CASUAL LIFESTYLE: 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.

Extreme Athletes

EXTREME ATHLETES: 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.

Weight Management

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT: 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

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.

  • Excellent Food

    By on

    We made the switch to Dr. Tim's a few months ago. Chewy wasn't carrying a food I wanted, and they recommended this one. What a great recommendation! My dog does really well on it. This food really improved my dog's muscle tone as well. Paired with Chewy's excellent customer service, I highly recommend this food.

  • Labs Are Loving It!

    By on

    We have been a Fromm family for years. I have so enjoyed ordering product from Chewy.com, not only for convenience, but their customer service is second-to-none; I hope the recent purchase doesn't affect that! With their recent promotion, I decided to have my Labs try Dr. Tim's. Typically, with the Fromm's, I'd have to add a bit of moist food to entice them to eat, but with Dr. Tim's, they walk with me to the feeding bin and eagerly wait for me to place their bowls in front of them. They eat it with nothing added; they're loving it, and I'm getting ready to change my autoship order from Fromm to Dr. Tim!

  • Good food.

    By on

    I am trying grain free for my dog's allergy issue. I did not fee this food particuraly brought a result I was looking for. But I know my dog loves this and it is reviewed as very balanced dog food. It is regular size kibble and my dog had no issue of digestion. It is a bit pricer than what I usually buy, so if it is on sale, I will be happy to purchase this again! :)

  • No More Allergy Shots!

    By on

    Our 10 year old dog has had to have shots to handle his allergies for about 7 years. Started him on Dr. Tim's grain-free specifically avoiding Simon's "bad foods" (turkey, sweet potatoes, cranberries) and we haven't given him a shot in months. We live in the middle of a pecan orchard - Simon is allergic to dust mites, pollens, and everything else - and he's still doing great. He's got his smile back and so do we. Can't find this brand in any store close by so thank you CHEWY.com for selling and to Dr. Tim for making it!!!

  • Doggies Love

    By on

    All three of my dogs love this food! They are excited at every meal time and chow down. Great improvement from other kibbles where my dogs would turn up their nose and skip meals or go off a food completely. Sensitive tummies love this food!

    Tried other more expensive brands, but had terrible results... My boy gobbles this stuff down! He's more active (even for an older boy), his coat is shiny, and there's not as much "waste"... Four paws and two thumbs up!

    I am happy to find a product that doesn't include a controversial, ambiguous ingredient called "natural Flavors." I will definitely continue to purchase Dr. Tim's, if no unforeseen health problems come up after introducing this to my dogs.
