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.

Absolutely not.

I wanted to try a senior dog food for my aging pup. I introduced her slowly to the food and she got quite sick within days. Vomiting and diarrhea. It was unusual, because she has never reacted this way before when I switched her food and she does not have a sensitive stomach. I have thought about getting the food tested and would not even feel comfortable donating the near 40lb bag. The bag was also open (in the box) upon arrival. I switched her back to her old food after a few days of rice and chicken and she is back to her old self.

Wanted to love

This food came highly recommended and we liked the ingredients. However, our super sensitive senior GSD can't tolerate even the smallest transition without horrific gas, constant panting, and diarrhea. We've had this experience with many high end kibbles so we're sure its not the food. In any case, our dog can't eat it.

Less than anticipated

As this was the only food I had, all my dogs, hounds and Doberman, were on it. Too soft stools which haven’t improved. Rereading the ingredients was disappointing, and I’m sorry I didn’t pay better attention initially. Had used Dr Tim’s before, not the Senior, with good results. Won’t buy this again.

Great senior food

My dogs have switched to this one from Dr. Tim's weight management, and they love this one as much as WM food. I wish the company offers 24lbs size bag.

Did not agree

I tried this food from a friend who gave me a bag. My dog loved it at her house and ate some at home. After 4 days of giving her a mixture of old food to new food, she was having very loose stools. Waited and tried again in a couple of days, can’t give it to her. I now have an almost full 5 lb bag, I can’t use. My friend does not live close by. My dog is a 14 year old Wheaten Terrier.

My dogs were getting up there in years and I switched to this food and they just love it ! They seem to have more energy and are doing really great on this food. I waited awhile to write the review to see how they faired on the food and it's a very pleasant surprise. Stools are firm. Coat is shiny. IMHO if you have an older dog this food is a must !

She Loves It!

I got this for my 10 year old Newfoundland, and she just loves it. She will eat it plain, no toppings, and cleans her bowl every time.

Shiny Coat

After two months on this food my dogs coats are super soft and shiny. My lab mix used to shed constantly but now she barely sheds. Great food!

Thank goodness we found this

My extremely picky and super sensitive (tummy) cocker spaniel loves this food. He is 13 years old and his digestive system gets out of balance easily — not pleasant — so I am thrilled that he likes this and can eat it without awful side effects. I’ll order more soon!
