Description

Dr. Tim’s Metabolite Weight Management Formula uses a novel approach to taking weight off your dog by rethinking the process and turning it into a win/win lifestyle for your pet AND you. Formulated through the combined efforts of a Ph.D. canine nutritionist and a veterinarian experienced in competitive dog sports and companion animal medicine, this food has high levels of protein, a complementary fiber structure and moderate fat content that work in tandem with your pet’s natural metabolism to support weight loss. Metabolite acts as a lock and key, opening one metabolic route after another to ensure your dog is optimizing his natural ability to burn calories, and ensure you won’t give up due to excessive begging. It incorporates all angles of the weight loss process, from the molecular structure of the ingredients to the psychology of the pet owner, to build and maintain your dog’s healthy weight while understanding the behavioral difficulties of an overweight dog who’s always hungry.

Key Benefits

  • Complex fiber blend keeps your dog feeling full between meals

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

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.

  • Flavor must be great

    By on

    My dog is very picky but when she likes her food, she really likes it. She is a bit overweight so I needed to find something that I thought she would like. I first mixed Dr. Tims with the food she was already eating and low and behold, she was taking her old food out of the bowl and leaving it on the floor. she ate all of Dr. Tim's. All I can say is that if my dog loved it any dog will love it. She hasn't lost any weight yet but at least she likes her new dog food.

  • Gracie Loves It!

    By on

    I switched from an easy on the stomach kibble to Dr. Tim's Metabolite Weight Management food because our cocker is 9 lbs. overweight and needs surgery on her back leg cruciate ligament. She loves the food, and hopefully after surgery, will continue to become more fit at a lower weight.

  • My girl never took to it

    By on

    I've been trying to get my 59-62lb mutt to lose some weight. For my picky girl, this food being so low in calories has you dishing out 2 cups each meal. She just won't eat 2 cups of food. Which I considered before purchasing but took the chance. Well she wouldn't really eat it once I weaned her completely to it. I added some sweet potato to it but couldn't get her to eat more than a cup and a quarter at a time. So I would say, if you have a picky eater, this might not be the food for you. I have switched her back to Whole Earth Farms Healthy Weight for now.

  • Working for us!

    Purchased for 4 year old female pit bull that is 15 pounds over weight. She has lost 3lbs on the first bag with no change to exercise, so it was all from the food. Seems palatable as she happily eats it.

    My Aussie loves Dr Tims Metabolite weight Management dog food she thinks that it is treats. We have been trying to reduce her weight and this has finally worked for her. Aussie has lost 4.3 pounds. My friend Connie at the Vet's office was as excited as I was.

  • Success!

    By on

    For months, we tried to get two of our boys to lose weight with very little success. Dr. Tim's Metabolite has provided the boost they needed. We are partially through the second bag and have seen great results. I am so glad to have found a food that helps with weight loss without compromising quality ingredients, like many other diet foods do. We have slightly increased exercise for our two overweight dogs, but not drastically, so I believe it is the food that is making the difference. They don't seem hungry all the time either. Our vet is pleased with our progress and so are we!

  • Baby is Losing Weight !!!

    By on

    My 8 yr old female Chihuahua was starting to look like an over-in-flated football. We have tried many other brands. Baby will eat anything, so that was never the issue. But only after 2-wks of slowly introducing the food, I believe she has lost weight! She is definitely less bloated, and starting next week, will be on Dr.Tims completely. I plan on weighing her this weekend. So glad I did the research and tried this brand. CW

    I purchased this product because of my interest in getting some weight off my dog. In my research I was trying to find a good product under 300 calories. I checked with Dog Food Advisor and this product was highly recommended for its quality. My dog is eating it. With time we will see if she losses weight. A little more difficult now that it is winter and she does not like the cold.

  • Excellent Weight Loss Product

    By on

    I have been feeding this to my chihuahua for a little over two weeks now. I put her on the scale, and she weighed in at eleven pounds when we started her diet. She was 10 pounds and six ounces yesterday when she weighed in. I feel that is pretty good progress. I have noticed an increase in her energy levels as well. She likes the taste of the food, and she eats it without any fuss or complaint. The biggest adjustment has been for me, because for years I have just kept out a bowl and allowed all of the dogs to free feed. Obviously, that is no longer an option. I would definitely recommend this product. And I would recommend buying it from Chewy.com as well.

  • Disappointed

    By on

    I had high hopes for this food. Instead of losing weight or just maintaining, my chihuahua has actually gained weight. I'm not saying it's a bad product, but it just didn't work for my best friend. She gets exercise and her only treat is a weight management greenie at night. I think I'll be switching back to the Honest Kitchen. Hope other people have better luck with their dogs.
