Works For Weight Loss and Management
I first used this food for a disabled client’s 10 y.o. large dog who needed to lose 30 lbs while he was recuperating from a TPLO. Leo hated Royal Canin which was prescribed by the vet. I researched 10 other weight loss foods. Dr. Tim’s had a nutritional profile that I was satisfied with and, best of all, Leo loved it. My second experience with this food is for my 3 y.o. Dalmatian. We do a lot of training (ie, nose work, tricks, consent work for husbandry, obedience) which involves lots of treats. He was starting to look a bit thick when I decided to try Dr. Tim’s. It did the trick. Spot slimed back down. Unfortunately I’ll have to rotate to another food (because it’s a recommended practice to do that a few times a year). But Dr. Tim’s will always be in Spot’s food program.
Worth the Gas?!?
Jury is still out on this one. My golden loves it, and I’m sure she loves the amount she gets with it, but her gas on this food can clear the room quickly. It it horrible. Dr. Tim says it’s probably the peas (I was able to email them) and recommending adding their elk probiotic, thereby making this food combo as expensive as Rx food. Going to finish the bag and weigh her then decide if it’s worth this awful gas, or whether we need to find another option.
I have been giving my pups eukanuba fit body weight management food for years. Now I can’t seem to find it. It has been out of stock lately. Although my dogs don’t seem to mind this and it’s very similar ingredient the price for less food per bag is hitting the pocket book. I pay more for four pounds less.
Golden Retriever Success
My Golden retriever has been battling the bulge ever since she was spayed. I cut treats, increased exercise, and drastically reduced her portions but she just kept gaining. She had a blood panel done to rule out certain health conditions. I tried various brands and types of food over the last 2 years that either didn’t result in weight loss or didn’t agree with her in one way or another. Happy to say she’s been on Dr Tim’s Metabolite for 5 months and looks fantastic. She continues to lose weight and while she doesn’t attack this food as ravenously as some others, she does eat it and it seems to satisfy her. It took about 2 months before we saw some significant weight loss. I definitely recommend this food - just give it some time to work.
It gets the job done
I've been struggling to find a low-cal food that my dog doesn't mind, and Dr Tims made the cut! He has lost about a pound and has stood at a healthy weight since. Def going to recommend this to anyone I know whose dog needs to cut the cals
Dr. Tim's is the Best
Dr. Tim's dog food is excellent. I particularly look for food that does not have corn in it, since most cases of salmonella or tainted dog foods that are recalled are those with corn in them. My dogs eat Dr. Tim's dry food very eagerly.
My dog, Jorge, is overweight and his appetite varies from day to day. He has always turned his nose up at dry dog food. Dry dog food has to be mixed in with wet dog food beforehand for him to eat it. Now with Dr Tim’s he actually eats it dry. Amazing!!!
My Corgi Roxy loves this food
If anyone has a Corgi they know that food is their obsession, so when we noticed our girl was gaining weight we tried a couple different foods to get it under control. Most of the other weight management foods either made her more hungry (she started eating her poop) or they made her poop more because of the added fiber and she never lost any weight. We found Dr. Tim's and have never looked back; we had to find the right amount by adjusting their recommended servings and ended up giving her a rounded 1/2 cup twice a day which worked well. She loves this food and it has helped her lose and maintain her proper weight.
Very please with service
I am very glad I sign up for AutoShip on my pet food is of ordering delivery and quality thank you so much chewy.
Great for weight loss!
This is the lowest calorie kibble I could find for my beagle who is trying to lose weight. He eats it happily and we're down 1.5 lbs so far!
