Description

For a novel approach to help your canine pal manage his weight for a healthier lifestyle, nourish him with Dr. Tim's Weight Management Metabolite Formula Grain-Free Dry Dog Food. 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 elevated 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
  • High protein, moderate fat and a special fiber blend work in conjunction with your dog's natural calorie furnace to help your dog lose weight.
  • Dr. Tim's unique, grain-free mix may be helpful for dogs with food allergies.
  • Complex fiber blend keeps your dog feeling full between meals, plus patented BC30 probiotic to promote a healthy digestive system.
  • With real protein from animal sources, this low-calorie meal is rich in essential amino acids, plus it has L-carnitine to promote fat metabolism.
  • DHA and EPA from ocean fish oil can help with inflammation, immune and brain function, heart health and shedding.

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

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.

    Jorja just started Dr Tim's and she really likes it. I am happy it does not have grain in it. As far as weight loss it's to soon to say. But will update after her first weigh in.

    I have three dogs, two of which are currently eating this food (my third dog is allergic to chicken so can't eat this). My super picky but already trim 65lb basset does not care for it. But she hates just about everything about after couple of weeks anyway (she has tried probably 20 different brand/flavors over the past few years). I add a little warm broth or water to make a gravy to entice her to eat it. I also use fresh/steamed fruits/veggies (mostly green beans but also throw in a little sweet potatoes, apple, blueberries, spinach, carrots, peas, etc) as a topper for additional nutrition and to help coax her. The feeding instructions say she should be getting 4 or more cups a day, I have three dogs, two of which are currently eating this food (my third dog is allergic to chicken so can't eat this).

The feeding instructions say she should be getting 4 or more cups a day, but when I fed her 2 cups per meal (2x/day) she was leaving quite a bit in the bowl. She eats about 3 cups a day (with about a total of 1 cup of fruit/veggies a day) and seems satisfied (isn't begging or looking for more food). My overweight beagle eats anything and everything with gusto. He inhales this food. He is about 36 lbs and needs to get down to about 22 lbs. The instructions say to feed 2-ish cups a day, which I did at first, but my dog was super burpy and his stomach gurgled a lot, so I've reduced it down to a cup a day of kibble and about a cup a day or fruit/veggie topper and that resolved the burping and gurgling. He always looks for more food, even when I fed him more - he is a garbage disposal! He seems to be overall satisfied and isn't begging or trying to steal food. He has lost a little over a pound in that past three weeks with no other changes to diet or exercise (though more exercise is happening soon!). One of those weeks was the changeover from his previous food to this one. … more

    I have tried other weight management dog food for my Chihuahua and I have been very disappointed. I decided to try Dr. Tim's and it works. My Chance loves the food and has lost the weight. He is healthier and looks great

    I absolutely love the Dr. Tims dry dog foods. I have been feeding the GF Kinesis for years, my smooth coated collie does great with it and so did my Great Pyrenees/English Bulldog puppy. Unfortunately my now over 3 year old Great Pyrenees/English Bulldog has put on some weight, So in my search for a good weight loss dog food, I was absolutely thrilled that Dr. Tim's had brought out a weight management GF food. I can already see the weight coming off from her and this is important to us since she has had bad hips, bad knees, and arthritus since before she was even 1 year old.
